If you look at the upcoming releases section though, you get 1 November: https://www.nuclearblast.de/en/label/mu ... index.html
Still, seven days won't make that much of a difference I think. Five days until pre-orders start!

And this time we have overture, comets, prophecies, dark clouds, underworld, great wars, coronation and so on... Right now I'm writing this with tears in my eyes... My body is ready for it, but even reading the names of the songs I know that this will be the climax in their career and also for me as a listener... Nothing will ever top this... An era has come to an end... :cry: :cry: :cry:

I doubt that we'll get something more today. just the different editions... We already have the artwork, the song names and we just have to make our pre-orders... The song durations is something that is too early to be revealed I think. For BTRM it was revealed far later.

This song "Point of no return" seems to have my already favourite chorus part(if that's the chorus)... :twisted: :D
Can't even describe how I feel after hearing it for like thousands of time already... It reminds me of the chorus of "At the edge of time", but with even more classical sounding and even bigger...

It's great that though the songs are deprived of the metal parts this time, they are still quite hefty - not 3-4 minutes, and several are 7 minutes long, which I like.
And it's a long album - if I calculated stuff properly, the actual songs amount to about 66 minutes of music, and the whole record with interludes is 75 minutes long! And on top of that, there's also the instrumental CD and extra stuff on deluxe editions...
Also, I have a feeling that "War Feeds War" will be the single.

The orchestral album "Legacy Of The Dark Lands" is all about new songs with lyrical concept based on the novel of markus heitz. It's not a ri-edition of old songs neither in terms of music. It's all magic....epic....mind-blowing!! Any band has ever done an album like this !! So I can't do any answer at this poll ....with all respect 8) 8)

I know that :D But "Harvester of Souls" is an old song which was originally composed for orchestra, but then Andre dreamt it in a metal version, so that's why it was previously released. In this album, the song will have additional parts and will release it's full grandeour. All other compositions are completely new. What we know is that it is no song from NIME and no ATTWS. All of this was said by Hansi ;)

And that it's not "Bright Eyes" or "Mordred's Song" either, as also evidenced by Hansi.

Blessed are you :D No, since the book is only in german, I'm not able to read it, but if in the next 3 months you have some time to explain with a few words the story, I would be really happy and thankfull. Btw, as far as I can see, we are going to get an audio version of the sequence of the "Die dunken lande" in the bonus editions. The audio book seems to be the exact story on which the album is actually based :?:

Yes, just ordered this beauty yesterday. I'm not really sure if it's going to be available in Europe, so that's why I bought it from US, even that the price is higher due to the shipping :oops:
I skipped the orange one, since I'm not really sure that these bright and happy colors are good for the atmosphere of such a dark and majestic album.

"The pre-orders for the app will start on September 6th" - this is the response I received from nuclearblast about the "single". I'm not sure what does this means exactly. So, I asked if it's going to be available on physical copy, too. Personally, I won't listen to the single, since I want to hear the whole album at once this time, but I'm gonna buy it anyway :)

App? LIke application? What does that have to do with a single? :?: So we will have to wait a bit longer... though I wasn't going to listen to it either. I have tried several times now to wait until an album arrives to me without spoiling anything prior, but I always failed, sooner or later (the closest I got was with Dream Theater's new album). This time, however, I am all determined to wait until November or more, if such my fate be.

I've being waititng for this album for the past 10 years, so 2 more months is like nothing compared to this :D At the same time, being able to hear an album(especially this one) without any spoilers would be once in a life time!!!

Can you hear it? Time is ticking! November 8, 2019 is set to be the day of days.
We are only a few weeks away from the release of „Legacy of the Dark Lands“. Just a few more weeks and the album will be yours! You will finally be able to grasp an idea of what we’ve been talking about for the last 20 years. Of course, we are extremely excited. There has been so much passion and love from everyone involved in this fantastic project, it’s quite unbelievable. I’m sure you will enjoy every second of this album, and there will be no arguing afterwards; this is an absolute unique album. You’d better make sure you get the version most suitable for you!
Nuclear Blast has set up a bunch of beautiful configurations which will accommodate our music perfectly. Everyone involved in this project has been working hard to make sure that everything is set up in the best possible way, and also to make sure that our November release date can be kept in any case. I want to thank everybody for this very impressive show of support.
Still some things are unavoidable. Due to a delay in the finalization of the comic book, caused by unforeseen private circumstances, we’ve finally decided to give up the idea of the comic and its related configurations. Instead we will go for a very special Earbook version, similar to what we did for our last output „Beyond the Red Mirror“. The Earbook looks nothing but stunning and we are more than pleased with it.
NB already mailed that price stays the same....
So Mr. Kürsch, you owe us something... how about a live album of D&W tour? :wink:

Okay, I see it!

Yes, exactly! Refrain from listening until you get the whole thing! I didn't even watch the first trailer they released a month ago (already??). Though it will be interesting to see other people's opinions when a new song is dropped. I am curious to see how the so-called 'metal community' will accept such an album...

Just asked Nuclear Blast today. On 6th September the pre-orders for the physical copy will drop on their site. Anyway, I won't listen to it. As for the way the "metal community" will react to this album - personally, I think that everyone should bow down before the majesty and quality of this album. In the first trailer there are 5 secs from a song called "Point of no Return"(most probably) and even those 5 seconds sounds bigger than everything I have ever heard... I mean, even those 5 seconds already topped my HIGH expectations for this album... If the rest of the album bears this quality, then we're about to receive something that can easily top everything ever created...

We'll see about that, but at least I'm quite optimistic!

All lyrics of the songs and the lyrical concept have been written and composed during the last 5-6 years....but first of all the music and so the orchestral parts.....but if I well remember in 2016 the whole concept has been re-written since they based the whole opera about the opera of markus heitz and so the sequel (legacy of the Dark lands) has lyrics based on the book "die dunkle lande" and Hansi recorded all of the vocals between late 2017 and mostly all 2018....just to make a recognition.... am I right? :mrgreen:

Anyway 75 days left....I will pre-order mine very soon....!!!

You can also get it from Amazon, at least the standard black vinyl. I usually use Amazon.co.uk, got my digipak preordered there.

I know, right? I wish it was the actual front album cover, not just a picture for CD2. Although it probably will show up somewhere in the booklet too.
