Re: Songs for the new live album

"Guardians of the Realm" could be the name, title isn't written.... it's a complete new song with Hansi with Orchester but later on joining some heavy guitars. It's on the game's OST (Track 2) I wonder if they maybe release it (digital) on Christmas via Santa Guardian! :D Meanwhile you can buy the ...

Re: BG appearence in videogame "Die Zwerge" ("The Dwarves")

Very weak song.

It shows how good GP, ATEOT, WOT and The Throne really are. It tries to be epic but fails, very random song.

Re: BTRM is probably their best

Hell no, filler is something like Valkyries, Tanelorn, Sacred or half of the stuff in ATITM. At the edge of time is in my opinion the best song in this album, it's a song that flows like water and Hansi is amazing in it.

BTRM it's one of their best records for sure.
