Re: NEW DOUBLE LIVE ALBUM IN 2017 AND ORCHESTRA ALBUM IN 2018!!

So, tell me, what songs would be on a new live album that haven't been on previous live albums or DVDs? Keep in mind that some songs have never been played live at all, so those don't count. I'd say that we're a very atypical crowd since we own everything and enjoy hearing "different" songs than th...

Re: NEW DOUBLE LIVE ALBUM IN 2017 AND ORCHESTRA ALBUM IN 2018!!

The lack of Curse of Feanor is really disappointing. As is the general lack of songs they haven't had on a live album before. I love Blind Guardian, but why are they so obsessed with releasing the same songs over and over?
