Re: Possible setlist for BTRM 2015 tour?

They'll play 2 new songs each night, 3 at all, and then it will be Guardian of the Blind, Welcome to Dying, 3-4 Imaginations songs, the usual 3 Nightfall songs, Sacred Worlds, nothing from ANATO, and Bard's Song :P Lame! That will steal the poorest setlist award from Maiden! They've been doing that...

Re: Rating all that is beyond the red mirror

If Ninth Wave they didn't have that irritating slow, almost spoken part in the middle of each verse, it would have been a good 8:18 long song. And I would have given it 8.1 how much are you giving it now? can't seem to find your votes (or maybe i'm turning too much into a guardian, and getting blin...
