ATEOT Online Bonus Content Update

#1 Post by HaVoC » 26 Aug 2011 18:30

Hey Folks! Just read it at the Nuclear Blast Newsletter =)

"2011-08-26 03:00 - „A long, long time ago we promised additional material for the ones who bought the digi pack version of "At the Edge of Time". As usual, things take far longer than expected, but at the very end we keep our promise. This is just another perfect example. Enjoy our alternate mixing ideas for "Curse my Name" and "Wheel of Time". One appears a little heavier, the other a little more "Riverdancish":-) Enjoy music, enjoy life“, Hansi Kürsch / Blind Guardian "

Have Fun =)

And yet another example of NB not letting me know before they put up something related to BG...sad, sad, sad.

I just can't download anything from this site. Everytime I try it just downloads some file named "index" which I can't open, no matter which program I'm trying.
Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Would the heavier version be the Curse My Name (original) that was on the Japanese edition or whatever edition was released?

So did I, on Firefox. I tried it on Chrome, and it worked fine.

I just got the Deluxe Edition... But my disc inside was loose because the plastic pins were broken. SO I DEMAND RECOMPENSATION.

Not really, that would be ridiculous, but I would so love to hear these alternate versions.

Yup, definitely have the Digipak version, but there is no code to be found. I'm told it's supposedly on some card insert with the booklet? Nope. Nothing there! I'm so anxious to hear the songs ;p Any new BG within the 4 year cycle is much needed!

Just Downloaded the songs :D Curse my name is actually without the orchestration stuff so it's just pure guitars and percussion but with the tap dancing section in the middle much more clearer, I really liked that part and the remix in general is awesome. As for Wheel of Time, again no orchestration except for the violin solo in the beginning and middle and some of what I think is the computer based early orchestration, the song sounds heavier and more raw, nice one indeed but I prefer the original song because I think the its greatness comes from the real orchestra. Anyway as a promise (which I totally forgot about) those 2 songs are just great as anything BG would do 8)
All those plans and hopes and dreams what happens to them? it's only a handfull of the lucky ones who can look back and say that they even came close.

Wow, Curse my name is really heavy, especially in the end. Me likes :D

And I really like this version of Wheel of Time as well. Now if André would transcribe some of the orchestral leads, during parts where there isn't much to do on the guitars and Hansi would choose a rougher style of singing, you could evolve this into an epic but at the same time totally highspeed, neckbreaking live version of the song, which would work also without the video show and stuff. Maybe one could even try to skip the oriental middle-part (not because it's bad, it's absolutely awesome in this version, the percussion is really impressive!), but for two reasons: 1, it is a bit of too much a break when you're going for a speed Metal version, and 2, it would shorten the song a good deal and thus it would be easier to fit it into a live set.

For anybody using Firefox, and the problem is that left-clicking gives you a stream and right-clicking downloads a webpage (annoying as hell), go into your add-ons menu and choose plugins. Disable the QuickTime plugin. Now left-clicking the link should give you a download box. If that doesn't do it I don't have a solution.

I had this problem with firefox, too.

Then I just renamed the files to "song-title.mp3" and it worked.

Why have they not been playing that version of WoT live? it fits a live show so much better and is really good. They wouldnt have even had to use a backtrack at all if they played this version live and it would probably be more awesome live as well

I wouldn't play it live like that. Even though they use a backtrack, they shouldn't cut out the part that makes this song outstanding.

Sorry for warming up an old topic,

i recently bought ATEOT and wanted to download the bonus content with the code...
Unfortunately the site was already removed.

I did contact NB (site offline, how to get content?):
The answer:
"Sorry, the link was removed."

I was like !? Okay !? - no answer to my question.

I replied: Ok I know that. But how to get access to the content? Will you put the site online again? I bought the Deluxe Edition because of the Unreleased Tracks (short summary).
The answer: "No, *hmm* I dont think we put it online again. The link was temporary"

I am a little upset (even more since i heard that the alternative mix is quite good).
Anyone got an idea?

That's indeed a harsh answer and if you ask me not in line with law.
If they still sell those special editions they have to offer this stuff, if you ask me.
Or at least hey could send them to you via email.

I could send you what i have (besides the named ones there was an alternate version of valkyries)
i don't know if have the media stuff left (if i remember correctly there was a video and some photos as well) but maybe i mix some things up with the extra content on CD or with some other special edition with dlc content by another band. :)


that's why i love to have CDs, imagine a streamign service would say: sorry for being our client for 4 years thanks for your purchase but we stop our service :evil:


EDIT: sorry there ois no alternate version of valkyries, just an extended but this one was not this page it was a bonus on the japanese edition.

There are two points here:

First, personally I expect a more polite answer (for customer satisfaction).
Clearly the customer support was not interested at all (He did not even read my question completely).

Second, I think they have to provide it, since the downloadable content was part of the package. No information about a limited offer!

Anyways,
luckily there are other ways ...

The alternative Mixes are great !
Specially Wheel of Time (alt. mix) - this version could have been part of BTRM (At least as Bonus track like Doom).

Well... now I have to go to studio to let the venyl from BTRM Earbook be digitalized to listen to the alternative mixes.
Or get the JP Edition of BTRM ;-)
