'Stratovarius' are one of the most influential and successful power metal bands in the world and have established themselves as one of the greats of the metal scene. With 16 studio albums and eleven Top 5 rankings in their native country Finland, the Finns acquired their highest chart entry in Germany at # 27 with their latest studio album "Eternal" (2015). 'Stratovarius' always effortlessly manage to combine energetic melodies with sophisticated arrangements to bombastic heavy metal songs. Already founded over 30 years ago under the name "Blackwater", the band, whose name is a combination of Stratocaster and Stradivarius, released its debut album "Fright Night" in 1989. Between 1995 and 2004 'Stratovarius' created their three most successful works so far - "Visions" (1997), "Destiny" (1999) and "Infinite" (2000), which are bursting with timeless power metal classics like "Black Diamond" and "Hunting High And Low". With each album the fan base of the Fins grew and abroad 'Stratovarius' were hailed as the founders of progressive symphonic power metal. Their latest albums shine with one of the most frequently streamed power metal song "Unbreakable", the catchy "Halcyon Days" and the rocking "Shine In The Dark" - all songs that of course won't be missing on the Best Of. With two CDs crammed with the crème de la crème of more than 30 years as a band, the 'Best Of' additionally contains a special highlight: the brand new song "End Of Days", will sweeten the fan's wait for the new album. An elaborately designed artwork filled with (picture)-rarities and liner notes written by the band, songs remastered in 2016 and some other surprises, make an outstanding 'Best Of' that shouldn't be missing in any heavy metal collection.
