For starters (concerning NiME) - I'd be happy to learn of the reason for the use of the nickname "Fëanor" online.
I think most people (in and out of the books) dislike Fëanor (same can be said about Mordred, I suppose. Is that an intentional pattern?)...
He was the greatest of the elves according to Tolkien, but he wasn't a singer like Maglor, for example...

Is it related to being a perfectionist?
Was it meant to make people, like myself, wonder?
Is Fëanor misunderstood (by most readers)?
Is it just fun to have a wicked character for a nickname?...

Anyway - I hope we'll get more of the bards here again.
And of course news of the orchestral album are awesome and exciting :D

So, years and years where the BG Forum was a thriving community, and now that everyone's disappeared over to Facebook, HANSI himself posts? :shock: :lol:

Anyway, excellent news about the album being quite well in the works!!!
Well, he was already late in coming to video games, maybe he's just trying out this whole "internet"-stuff :D

9 months from now? I don't know - what do you, guys, think? To me, this sounds more like the beginning of 2020, since Hansi always postpones the records with at least 6 months.
But as I said so many times - 2020 sounds even better to me as a number :) :mrgreen:

No no no, it should totally be 2019! Nine months from now... I'm okay with that unless it gets pushed back yet again. 2019 marks four years since the release of Beyond The Red Mirror so it's about time really!

I don't know.., it will already be 4 and a half years actually. And I doubt that it will be delayed again.., there's no reason for that and they're almost nowhere in terms of LP12...
The question is just "when" - autumn 2019 ? or early 2020 ? :roll: :wink:

nothing is mixed so far.... there will be a D&W Tour (and maybe some production/recording work with the d&w album) then there is nearly 3 month of delay of announcement and release....so 9month is quite tough and tight, Mr-Kürsch ;-)

But i do hope for some snippet as christmas gift (or at least a cover of last christmas...hey you started it!)

Yeah, but Hansi himself said that 2019 is quite plausible... let's hope for the next year! 24 years is clearly too much, the baby can go at 23! :mrgreen:

Guys, just added in my first post some pictures of the Dvorak Hall in Prague where the orchestral pieces were recorded :)
The hall is really outstanding :twisted:

Good job! The pictures of the hall are quite breathtaking... I wonder if they actually had to commission another orchestra for the project, like they did with the last album. Perhaps the one from Budapest, once again.

Thanks for the kind words :wink: Yes, it wasn't easy, but searching for news about this album is something I make on default every day for the last years :)

Dragonfly, yes, I'm pretty sure it's not the only place for orchestral recordings or choirs, but Hansi is still quiet about details :wink:

It is not for nothing that Hansi himself chose this particular thread for his historic first post on the forum. :)

Wow thank you for this! I'm going to be in Prague in December very close to this hall! I'm definitely going to make a visit to it.
I can't think of anything clever to put here.
