    My main weapon of mass destruction is a 5-string Warvick Vampyre sn. As a backup bass I have my old trusty warhorse 5-s Ibanez Soundgear (which is actually quite crappy IMHO).

    And I personally believe that we have found pretty much our own sound and our own angle to heavymetal in general so don't expect dramatic changes soundwise but I believe that the songs will not be that complex that they were on the previous album. Then again, I might be wrong :loco:

    Was it Mikko that said that the 3rd album will make the first two look like school projects? I'm holding you guys to that! Even though i dont think it's possible... :worship:

    Hei guys
    Let's talk about Iconofear !

    Ilja, Markku and Teemu you parted ways from them to concentrate on Kiuas, but have you regretted it ?

    We all know that Iconofear is full of talent with a promising future like Kiuas :)grin:), and I can imagine that you're friends (or maybe not ? tell me) so, is there any kind of competition between you ? palpable in gigs for example...

    Thanks :)

    I was just wondering, since there's a lot of stuff on record with guitar harmonies, but only one guitarist in the band, if you guys would ever think of getting a second guitarist in the band?

    Kiuas, I absolutely love your cover of Jethro Tull's "Hunting Girl"... any chance of a cover as a bonus track on the 3rd release? Will there be a bonus track period with this upcoming album? Thanks!

    Okay, i'm new in this forum, and i really like your music. I'm a rookie drummer, And first of all, i would like to ask from Markku; How long you've been playing drums, and which drum brand do you play with?.. Any kind of story about your history as a drummer, gets me intrested. :] :worship:

    Okay, we haven't answered questions in this thread for a while, so I'll try to answer the last few briefly:

    Willstorm, we're good friends with Iconofear, we've known these guys for ages, and still hang out together.

    Considering gigs in the UK, there has been SO much talk with several promoters about organizing more gigs over there, and now with the new Spinefarm UK office launch, I'm quite positive we'll have more gigs over there in the near future (before having to put out another album).

    Nightgaunt, a second guitarist might be possible someday, but not for the time being. More band members=more phone calls, more work, more rehearsals, MORE DRINKS TO DEMAND IN THE RIDER!!! :lol:

    Stand Undefeated, no covers this time, we wanted to put an extra original one.

    And Rift, Markku is in Mexico, he'll probably answer you when he get's back!!

    Crom!:kickass:

    Hey guys, I was just wondering what your top albums of 07 were. It would be interesting to know, maybe it will turn me on to some new music! Thanks.
