Thunderstone

Finland's Thunderstone perform in a melodic speed metal style -- generally lumped into the power metal category -- that is quite popular across continental Europe. Originally formed simply for kicks in the year 2000 by guitarist Nino Laurenne, the band grew into a serious endeavor the following year with the arrival of singer Pasi Rantanen, keyboardist Kari Tornack, bassist Titus Hjelm, and drummer Mirka Rantanen. Soon armed with two promising demos, Thunderstone was courted and signed by Nuclear Blast, which issued the band's eponymous debut in June 2002. Stratovarius guitarist Timo Tolkki made a guest appearance on it, and later invited them to support his band, as well as America's Symphony X, on their European trek, after which Thunderstone reconvened in Helsinki to record their sophomore effort, The Burning, released in early 2004. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

Seriously? You guys don't have their album Dirt Metal? You're feckin' kidding me...
This is the first time I've heard this band and I really dig them! The music is heavy and accomplished and the vocalist has a really good melodic voice. Reminds me of Symphony X. Theses new power metal bands have a heck of a scene going on.

Love you guys!!! Swaeeet vocals !! With balls !!!

Playing ultimate Prog/Metal. Extensive EuroProg/Met a l . 24/7. ( No, ahpitre, they all don't sound the same ). Broaden your musical experience
@ BudRollsRadi O .
ahpitre
Most European Metal/Power Metal/Sympho n i c metal sound too much the same. Most try to imitate the early Helloween, Ingwie Malmsteen/Ri s i n g Force, etc.. Also, although there is some great durrmming and guitars, most bands have the same sound (they way guitars are tuned, distortion, effects, and drums sound the same). There seem to be fewer american bands that play this genere, but they tend to be more original in their music, and in their sound (their drums or guitars don't all sound the same).
Hammerfall? Theyre kinda my favorite band. These guys kinda sound like yngwie malmsteen a bit.
This stuff is good! For the record Iced Earth is from Florida... When they were known as Purgatory they were in Indiana. AND all these people talking crap about U.S. bands... bah... you guys left out DREAM THEATER...(a l t h o u g h Labrie is from Canada) ZERO HOUR is from California. :) Thought I'd throw my two cents in.
With a name like that how can you go wrong
I thought this was Ripper Owens singing at first.
ohmercy89
Great band. Great vox. Kick a**.
Bette Midler ain't got s**t on Thunderstone ' s Without Wings- they done tore hers off.
I'm going to use this band to evolve into raichu lolol
Just kidding, they are great.
The old singer easily had the best metal voice I've ever heard.
@Matthew Yoho: Gratz!
Opinions are like a**holes, everybody has one. And yours f**kin STINKS!
Thunderstone is the s**t! \m/
i like their rhythms and tunes but the vocals sucks in my opinion
Nabbed myself a copy of The Burning this evening courtesy of a gift card I had. Yay!
See this is what i forget and pandora reminds me to pull the CD's off the shelf i forgot how good this band is. The other band that fits well with Thunderston is Human Fortress
Great band. Pandora first threw me "Break the Emotion". Love the riffs, catchy as all hell. I got my mitts on the rest of their discography, solid power metal band. They have a hard rock vibe in some of their songs, their ballads ain't too shabby either.

And lol @ the drama on this page. Get a life people. And this band shouldn't be compared to the ghey that is DragonFarce.
Hell people, grow up all of you, geeze. Music is music, and people have different tastes. I will agree that I very much prefer the euro-metal bands over American metal but that doesn't mean that mine or anyone who agrees with me are the only opinions that matter. It's relative from person to person.
Didn't realize Bach, Beethoven and Mozart were from the states...JAC K A S S E S ! !
tiduspendrag o n 7 : If you don't like the US of A then GET THE F**K OUT OF HERE!!
Ah, another metal band Pandora has been kind enough to play for me - into the list of things that are awesome it goes!
Trivium is some of the best metal I've head. But if you don't like screaming then don't bother.
the_coming_c u r s e 2 0 0 1
Manowar is from New York... Iced Earth is from Indiana (Not Florida). Hell what about Slayer, Testament, Overkill, Suicidal Tendencies (granted they haven't put out a good one in years),Megad e t h , A n t h r a x . . etc.. the list can go on.. but yea we listen to way to much Rap and Country overhere. If we would mainstream these bands over here it would be alot better. But That is what what you get for a country full of Hics and Blacks.
Oh by the way, you all are idiots for saying America makes terrible music. Music wouldn't have evolved quite the way it has if it wasn't for the states and all their contribution . Don't get me wrong, our government can go suck a dick. But, our music can at least be one thing we can say we've made decent.
This band really sauces up my bacon the right way.
Mastodon, Baroness, High on Fire, Isis, Symphony X, Suspyre, Abigael Williams are all very decent american bands. But I do agree on the point that Europe far transcends america when it comes to talented musicianship .
Agreed. Also, don't forget that Iced Earth is from Florida and LOG still rules.
Anyhow, Thunderstone is great but Pandora needs to play some of their other songs, not just Mirror Never Lies.
I agree with you, cadaver. Our music sucks, especially compared to Europe's. Don't even get me started on reality tv. I'll just leave it at this: it needs TO F*CKING DIE!!!
brett, don't forget that Kamelot is from Florida
the_cadaver
Decent, killer leads on guitar and keyboard though... And yes, America sucks at making metal in general. We'd rather watch loads of reality television and make substanceles s music.
why is it that every band i like is a foreign band?!? why does america suck as cranking out power metal/melodi c metal bands. it is all rap and stupid stuff...
I think these guys sound more like stratovarius and sonata arctica than any of those on the list. I dont see how pandora thinks they sound anything like primal fear.
@josh daley: Yeah, they do it better than dragonforce though. They only put EXTREMELY fast solos and stuff when the song calls for a solo. And their singer is better, imo.
maxhammer200 5
Killer band, great attack, sweet sound !!
true dat tyler
they kinda remind me of dragon force but these guys have better rythm i think
These bands from overseas are rocking full speed ahead. High voltage riffs and remarkable rithms.A+ on my list.
bocult
If you like these guys(who are very good,by the way), check out Symphony X. Yeah, these guys are pretty good. Not my Favorite, but worth adding to the collection.
Just heard these guys for the first time today. I like 'em.
why do people like DragonForce so much? sure fast guitars but the real reason is because of guitar hero. THERE NOT THAT GREAT!!!!
This is why i love pandora... It introduces you to music that is simply put, incredible
this band has a really good sound....not over the top but aggressive style
has a good beat to the music i like it
with music like this wonder why they dont have more for people to listen to
littlegramas q u i l t s a n d s u c h
I like this band. Thank you Pandora for being so I have something to drown out all the country music in this god-for-sake n very little farming town I am stuck in.
I say by their next album the be almost as good as DragonForce
Damn strait Ann
Let's make that five months: it won't take them long; they're pretty powerful already!
Geez, give them another five years, Tyler! They'll measure up! They have potential!!! ! I confess a weakness for DragonForce, and Edguy, not to mention H.I.M., Poisonblack, and a slew of other Finnish bands! They can really crank it out!! Besides, they're pretty awesome already!
ok, but in a land where dragonforce and edguy and angra run mainstream, its pretty hard to meet the new standard
