Re: Blind Guardian's Twilight Orchestra - "Legacy of the Dark Lands" (The Orchestral Project)

For such a long-awaited project Nuclear Blast will extend this promotion period as much as possible, as evidenced by the very early announcement date - 1 March for an album to be out on 1 November. I guess they are just busy now...
