Re: Blind Guardian's 10th Album, "Beyond the Red Mirror"

I'm italian, living in the UK and I bought the album from the german NB webshop. In what country's chart are the (several editions) I bought?

is this but the middle chapter of a trilogy? I hope so! I wouldn't think so. Hansi in an interview said he doesn't like to finish stories, so he left it open after IFTOS and did the same on Beyond the Red Mirror as well, with the bonus track "Doom" as a sort of continuation of the story and he said...
