Re: What is the 4-CD "mailorder edition" and where do I get it?

I think it's for the novel the album is based on? Not 100% sure.

Re: What is the 4-CD "mailorder edition" and where do I get it?

It's the second one listed here and it was only limited to 1000 copies. The fourth CD is an audiobook.

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

So the rest of the band had no part at all in the final output?.. I thought they could at least vote on stuff... Interesting... They seem to be treating it as a separate band/side project. I noticed on Spotify the two singles are not listed under Blind Guardian. They're under Blind Guardian Twiligh...

Hey guys, is there a consensus on the remasters vs the originals? I wanna get TBTCK and just wanna know if I'll be good getting the remaster or if I should try to find a copy of the original.

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

I think it's like 99% safe to assume that the one listed on nuclerblast.de is the same one that's on iTunes, Spotify, etc and is the 2017 remaster.

But if you wanted to be 100% sure then you should contact NB.

Well they're not obligated to do straight 1:1 conversion between the regional stores and prices. Ideally it would be all the same but there's probably other factors involved (production costs, shipping, etc).

Based on the track list given for IFTOS, it most certainly looks like the 2007 remaster. And then I guess ANATO would be the one from ATGTSAT?

Found out about this from the Power Metal subreddit . The pre-Nuclear Blast albums are up for pre-order on the website as well as iTunes, which most likely means they'll be on Spotify too. :D http://shop.nuclearblast.com/en/shop/item/groups/51000.1.html?article_group_sort_type_handle=rank&custom_key...

I understand why he does it but it always bums me out how Hansi never actually completes the line "to find a path out of the dark."

Re: Forgotten Bard Songs ---- Most underrated/overlooked son

Great post! I agree with a lot of your choices but I will say that I think Lionheart is one of BG's worst songs. I despise it. :P

I also agree with Max on Follow The Blind....it's fantastic. I would add in The Eldar, This Will Never End, Run For The Night, and Miracle Machine as being underrated.
