The alternate artwork of the re-releases shirts are not in my taste. Of course the duelling dragons (Battallions of fear) or the connection to the Bards of the original logo on SFB is some nice idea....

Re: "The Tides of War", an unreleased NIME song, coming September 26th

But if you ask me you already hear the style of ATITM. Some parts remind me on Another stranger me (high notes) and Otherlands (straightness, first solo) but also Doom (roughness, solo in the end of the song)
But i like it. It has some many twists in speed and melody.
And your opinions?
