Re: Thomen rejoins Savage Circus, new album in the works

FUCK YEAH! :twisted: I spoke to Thomen a long while ago via email, and asked him what bands he was involved in, he said it was just Coldseed, and that there was another new power metal band that was in the works. I don't know what happened to that, and I really didn't like Coldseed, but... FUCK YEAH...

Re: Guardian's Guardian/Monk on a unfaithful (cover artwork)

Mainly for me, whatever main color the album cover is, I usually associate the music with that color. Albums with darker colors I usually listen to at nighttime, and brighter colors usually during daytime. Mainly white albums I usually listen to more so during the winter time etc. Its weird I know....

Re: deeper meaning of "a voice in the dark"

In the book the character has multiple dreams about falling down and in the most of them, if I'm not mistaking, he is not able to fly, that happens later in the story. So every dream is a new trial, if he can do it or not, just like every problem in life is a new trial for you to prove that you can...
