It has been more than 30 years since Stratovarius got together and became one of the most influential, successful and enduring power metal bands in the world – and 27 years since the release of their debut album Fright Night in 1989. It is about time that their 16 studio album strong catalog and their rare live releases are going to be reissued with refreshed artwork by the band's trusted cover artwork designer Gyula Havancsák, extensive liner notes and, even more importantly, bonus material. All of the albums will also be remastered.
The Stratovarius reissue campaign is set to begin with one of the band's most successful and most loved albums Destiny (originally released in 1998) and the cult live album Visions Of Europe (originally released in 1998). The mind-blowing Visions Of Europe is Stratovarius' first live collection. Recorded in 1997 during the band's tour behind their hit album Visions – Rock Hard named it one of the 500 greatest rock and metal albums ever – it features one killer song after another including "Kiss Of Judas," "Speed Of Light," "Father Time" and "Black Diamond."
