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

I think at least three months prior to release date is more realistic. 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...

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

Just thought that if they keep the release date for November 1st, then in the worst case scenario, we have to start receiving some major news and reviews of the album in the next 2 months :? Personally, can't wait to know the names of the songs and to make my pre-order.
