Song Of The Day - Stratovarius - Land Of Ice & Snow

Stratovarius formed in Finland in 1982 and since then has been one of the powerhouses of symphonic metal. 2011 saws their album Elysium reach #1 on the Finnish charts, after which they placed a call on their Facebook page looking for a new drummer. It was Rolf Pilve that answered the call and made the cut, making him the youngest member of the band at only 24. 

This selection is from their 2005 self-titled album, and one that exhibits their ability to mesh symphonic sound and power metal seamlessly and beautifully.
