STRATOVARIUS - DESTINY
reviewed by Erlend
Another good release from the Finnish power metal kings. Destiny is a great album from the powerful and epic "Destiny" to the slow and majestic "Anthem of the World". Some people say that Destiny was a disappointment from the awesome Episode, but I think it's just as good, if not better. It has some fantastic songs like "Destiny", "SOS", "No Turning Back", "Rebel" and on my cd, the awesome bonus track "Cold Winter Nights".
But of course, there are some less good stuff, like the boring "Years Go By" (I was gonna say 4000 Rainy Nights, but when I think of it, it's actually rather good) and "Venus in the Morning". I really don't like"Playing With Fire" either...
A good power metal release, with some progressive undertones. Go get it.
