The single also contains a demo track, and two unreleased live tracks recorded earlier this year on Stratovarius' wildly successful 2009/2010 Polaris world tour.

The cover artwork of both releases was done by Gyula Havancsák.

Cover art is no doubt in response to the Gulf of Mexico spill. One of their better covers I think.

No, 'Elysium' is literally based on the elysium fields on greek mythology.

True, but there's no reason they can't be referencing both.

Where is the oil? The pelican does appear slightly more brown that normal i guess, but the water is not. It could be just the way the pelican was drawn?

Yeah!!!good news..hope they wont disapoint!!
Dark†SymphonY - 22.10.2010 at 12:19  
Those are great looking covers.
GT - 22.10.2010 at 13:02  
Great looking covers indeed. Can't really the see the reference to the Mexican Gulf tbh. Anyway hope it's better than Polaris

It's likely to be. They've had plenty of time to gel as a band since Tolkki left. So i'm hoping the songs are more memorable this time.

Can't wait for this album and they never fail to disappoint!
wty789 - 23.10.2010 at 04:59  
Great! Hope it's a fucking awesome album!
LeChron James - 23.10.2010 at 05:20  
That starfish shaped thing in the background of the first cover looks like the pokemon starmie hahahaha

and the text introducing the second title says "darkes hours" instead of darkest hours.
Shadowcross - 25.10.2010 at 09:45  
Yes very nice covers and track list.. i've always liked the word 'elysium' .. hopefully i'll like the album!
