Stratovarius launch Until The End Of Days lyric video


Stratovarius have released a lyric video for their track Until The End Of Days.

It’s a new song from the Finnish outfit and appears on their upcoming Best Of compilation, due out on May 6 via Nuclear Blast.

Frontman Timo Kotipelto says: “Twenty years in Stratovarius have passed at the speed of light. I still remember when I joined the band and was happy to do some power metal. And I am very happy to still be able to do it after all these years.

“This collection of songs is an excellent selections and a cool way to remember the history of the band from the past to the present. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we did while selecting the songs.”

The collection will launch on 2CD and limited-edition 3CD package, which includes a Live At Wacken disc. Both will include the new track and it’s available to pre-order via their label’s website.

Stratovarius launched their 15th album Eternal last year.

The band have a number of tour dates scheduled over the coming months.
