Where is it?

The promotional video for one of the songs of "Beyond The Red Mirror"
It's almost an year since release and no news about the video.
Seems embarassing.

I agree that The Throne is their best song since And Then There Was Silence, I don't agree on your reasoning.
I think The Throne is good because it's a good song, nothing more, but mostly because it IS a SONG and doesn't try to be anything else.

Re: Tabs!

I would rate it a 3 out of 5.
Not excellent but functional.
It lacks both bass and drums and only features one rhythm track and one lead track.
Some sections are a bit off, but I only listened to it without playing it yet.
You can wait for some other version.
