Power metal has its magnificent representatives in Finland including Stratovarius. It has been more than 30 years since Stratovarius got together — what started in 1985 left a trail of 16 studio albums, ten Top 5 chart positions in their native country Finland and more than 40 top chart positions around the globe. With their distinguished mix of fast progressive metal and a melodic approach, symphonic metal originators Stratovarius became one of the most influential, successful and enduring power metal bands in the world.
