Stratovarius have broken their year long silence to reveal they are in the studio completing a new record. Its release will be preceded by a performance at Wacken Open Air Festival and followed by a full tour soon after release.
"Eternal" is the fourth studio album by the Finnish symphonic metal originators for the earMUSIC label.
The trilogy of albums "Polaris", "Elysium" and "Nemesis” were released close to each other as the consequence of the renewed creative energy the band gained following the arrival of new members to support the historical members Kotipelto, Johansson and Michael. The previous three albums by Stratovarius showcased the many talents of guitarist Mattias Kupianen (prolific songwriter and producer of all the albums, including "Eternal”), virtuoso bass player Lauri Porra and, on the third of the three, the young talent Rolf Pilve, one of the best drummer of his generation who had to replace Jörg Michael after the latter decided to move into a new role in Stratovarius management.
