Re: Virgin-era albums now being re-released on Nuclear Blast

In the new issue of German magazine Rock it there's a short review of the remastered albums.
The most interesting thing is that they say that ALL albums will be re-issued on vinyl next. I hope this is true!!!

Re: Setlist discussion for 2015

Was at the show in Hamburg yesterday and was really impressed.

After "Tanelorn" we all screamed for "Majesty" and they really played it right away.
