Biography

Finland (2008 – 2010)

Revolution Renaissance was a power metal band founded by guitarist Timo Tolkki after he left Stratovarius in 2008. The band released three studio albums before disbanding in 2010.

Last line-up:
Timo Tolkki - guitar (2008–2010)
Gus Monsanto - vocals (2008–2010)
Bruno Agra - drums (2008–2010)
Magnus Rosén - bass (2009–2010)
Bob Katsionis - Keyboards (2010)

The first record from the new band, aptly entitled “New Era”, includes the vocal talents of Michael Kiske (ex Helloween), Tobias Sammet (Edguy, Avantasia) and Pasi Rantanen (ex Thunderstone) plus Mirka Rantanen on drums (Thunderstone), Pasi Heikkilä on bass (45 Degree Woman) and Joonas Puolakka on keyboards.

Tolkki originally composed all the songs included in this album for Stratovarius, but after the group broke up, he thought he needed to get these songs out and did not spend time looking for a permanent band line-up. Since then Tolkki has found 3 excellent soulmates with young and fresh energy and is already writing material for a new album.

In March 2009, the band released their second album Age of Aquarius with a permanent lineup.

In October 2009 Timo Tokki announced that both Justin Biggs and Mike Khalilov have left the band due to musical differences.
