Re: Rhapsody (of Fire) split in two

It's weird, because I didn't see any ill will at Wacken when I watched their show. Usually if there's stuff going down in a band, you can see it in how the members are treating each other on stage or the lack there of (see Sonata Arctica right before Jani left). There was nothing to tell me that the...

The guitar riffing. It sounds just like 90's era Pantera. Michael Romero is way better than to use that crap on every single song. It gets extremely monotonous to listen to.

Do they normally play a 2 hour set? I'm asking because in 2008 they weren't playing it. The most I've seen out of an opener was 90 minutes. That's what Iron Maiden, Avantasia, and Nightwish got in 2008.
