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

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).

I have a question. Why these two links show different images and prices on the albums. I mean, which ones are the remastered ones, cause I don't know which ones to order? Some help, please :? http://shop.nuclearblast.com/en/shop/item/groups/51000.1.html?article_group_sort_type_handle=rank&custom_ke...

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

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?

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

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...

The liner notes for both SFB and IFTOS say ESP Guitars. Nothing more specific than that, I'm afraid.

Re: Video for "Mirror Mirror" from "Live Beyond the Spheres" coming May 26th

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." I would love to see them try it and just have Marcus/Andre/Michael start off the chorus and then Hansi can jump in later (most likely at "true hope lies beyond the coas...

There's no way they could ever do all of NIME night after night for a tour. It would be way too demanding for Hansi.

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.

I think they feel pressured to make sure a lot of the classics (Mirror Mirror, Bard's Song, Valhalla, etc) are include in their setlists. It's no easy task when you have 10 albums to choose from.
