    Hi

    does anyone know the band "Stratovarius"?

    I've to admit even I like them and their style though I'm not Hard'n'Heavy addicted.
    Some songs sound a bit like Dream Theater.
    And some other songs are fast... really fast (e.g. Father Time)

    Do you know something about them?

    Wow, first time I hear someone ask about Finnish band here! :)

    They indeed are Finnish, tho they have two members
    (keyboardist and drummer) from Sweden and Denmark I believe.
    They are probably most well known metal band in Finland
    and quite popular in Japan. Latest album is called Infinity,
    released about year ago, other good albums are called 'Visions' and 'Destiny' and homepages at http://www.stratovarius.com.

    I like Stratovarius, but only upto the Visions CD. They started getting a bit too whimpy for my tastes. Former Yngwie Keyboardist, Jens Johansson, is with them.
