    Where did you order from and did you pre-order the Japanese edition or the spend-less-but-prolong-the-tormenting-wait version? :D

    Mine was originally ordered from cdbanq, but I requested a cancellation when I found HMV Japan had the CD as well. I haven't ordered from their Japan website before but have done business with them on many a previous occasion (just on hmv.ca). :erk:

    I think I'm gonna wait it out. I want to hear this badly, but it looks like it's gonna cost about $45 Canadian to get it from either HMV Japan or Amazon Japan after shipping. Even though it's pretty much my most anticipated disc of the year (along with the new HammerFall), I can't justify that price for any CD.

    Are the tracks on the Japanese version live? I just read that it has 2 songs from World of Silence, but nothing said they were live or alternate takes or anything.

    That's a good question but I'm also in the dark. I know I read somewhere that a song or two would be remixed and added as a bonus on the new album a few months ago.

    I had to go with my CDbanq order as they apparently shipped it today and wouldn't accept the cancellation request. Luckily I was able to cancel the HMV order though.

    I've made that mistake twice before with Borealis' fellow Lion Music label-mates Seventh Wonder, but at least the band is getting that much more out of it. :D

    Because World Of Silence was independently released by us it did not reach much of the world so 2 tracks were taken off the album and used as bonus tracks for the Japan release. I believe they have been remastered aswell. We're anxiously awaiting our Japanese copy aswell to see all the extra goodies they have added haha.

    I think the best way to get the new album really quick (and cheap) would be to go see Borealis opening for Symphony X in Toronto on April 27th. ;)

    Sadly I can't make it and would likely get my neck snapped in the mad rush to get the CD. :D

    Hope many more orders/pre-orders are made as a result of the show. :worship:
