Oh boy! TWO bands named ‘Stratovarius’?

This looks highly problematic for the metaphysician; which is the genuine ‘Stratovarius’?


Timo Tolkki has announced that he would like to make one more “Stratovarius” album

It sounds like we have can have very novel ways to refer to the band.

Stratovarius – a de re notion of the band – not helpful, because there are two of these (or one false, and one real)

‘Stratovarius’ – The band without Tolkki, whom the former had given “legal and moral rights” to the band
‘Stratovarius II’ – The lineup (with Tolkki) based on the instrumentation and style of the album Twilight Time; or Stratovarius II.
