Re: BTRM song poll (make 3 choices)

To me, however, as far as I can gather from the words without the lyric sheet is that the Christian themes in BTRM are woven in, accepted almost, whereas in IFTOS, they were heavily critical of preachers and moneymaking, things like that. Which I prefer, but I must admit the music in BTRM is much mo...

Re: BTRM song poll (make 3 choices)

I like Ashes of Eternity. But I can see why people do not like it. It is a bit more straightforward faster song, does not have many "epic" elements and the chorus strays from the usual BG formula; most lines are a non-overdubbed Hansi singing and no high notes or something like that. The chorus sou...

The trailer has also won me over. I really love the way the chorus sounds like some of BG's older, upbeat sounding choruses, like in Nightfall. And in addition to that, even more excitingly in my mind, is the guitar-playing at the end!!! Speeeeed!!!

I've already become addicted to this one-minute taste of the song and I know this song will feature as one of my favourite from BG ever. It's already given me so many powerful feelings. Love how eerie and "under" the chorus sounds. It's almost like an anti-chorus. So good.
