Re: New tour! First show! Any chance of a live setlist updat

I'm really eager to see a live video of TOTG. How do the people that already have been to concert feel on the live performance of that song? I'm really suprised that they don't play holy grail instead as it surely is a killer live song and in german metal forums people love that song, even the oldsc...

Re: Blind Guardian's 10th Album, "Beyond the Red Mirror"

They're losing contact neverthless. In the moment when your fanbase doesn't buy an album day 1 there's something going on. I don't know how many metal-related forums you guys take part into but the average expectation is "Can't wait to listen the new BG, but I fear they will release a dump", so sur...

I'm not technical on the BPM measuring at all, but for some reason The Holy Grail makes me at beat at 340 times a minute, instead of 170. I've no idea what's the official measuring of songs. It certainly is (or at least feels) faster than Ride Into Obsession. And it's also right what you say. But i...

I'm so glad they decided to pay less attention to the slower stuff. Anyone can make a slow song, but the fast stuff can expose both the...
