    thanks :)
    yes, you can open older gtp tabs with the recent one...
    I think they shut the download a few months ago, but it is still open because of the compositions of some non-signed artists and some competitions they organised.
    Here is what they say on the site:

    "Providing some tabs - even made by ear - of copyrighted music is illegal. In order to respect the law, downloads have been limited to the [Composition] and [Competition] files. We are going to make our best to find a solution to offer music content without infringing copyrights."

    Well, Martin B said that for PMH, but maybe the story with FR is what Mikael said. They should get rid of both songs, in my opinion, but i guess they never will.

    Didn't they use to play those in 2002? I don't think they'll play them now, but good luck.

    My guess is that most of the bands they tour with are more famous than them. ;)

    But that keeps them from going commercial. :)

    But that's just because you don't like ALFW. ;)
    Still, even if you don't like that one, there are other great closers, such as Ex nihilo and The mind's eye (but they'll never do those because they're instrumentals :(), ...Of melancholy burning and Not built to last.

    Please do define 'hardcore'.

    They played that in Osaka once, and i found it to be very effective (and it was either right before or right after Misery in me, which was also a great move in my opinion).

    The problem is that songs like PMH (and i hope it never happens to Lethe, but it's on a good way to getting there too) have been played so much that they have stopped being classics and become really boring three-to-five-minute moments. Also, what happened to older classics, like Of chaos and Nightfall? Hell, they could play all the songs on Skydancer for all i care, even if that's my least-favorite album by them; at least it would break with the stuff they always play.

    They play (or played, i don't know if they still do it) that every single time.

    I like the keyboard version better. ;)
    But they should play it with bass now and then, and they should play the beginning of Insanity's...

    Brandstrom gets a lot of stuff to do. He always plays a solo intro to the first song on the list (regardless of which song that is), and a lot of songs have great keyboard parts. Honestly (and surprisingly, at least to me), DT is probably the only band (or one of the really-few bands) to give such an important role to the keyboard player instead of letting the guitar player(s) do everything.

    I guess i'll have to try and bribe mike and the band with a few beers before and after the gig if they can do Format C. For Cortex, and maybe a bourbon if they do Fabric & I, Deception! haha. less than 1 week, cant beleive it, doesn't seem real!

    I bet all you lucky fuckers that have seen DT a few times before hand dont get why me and a lot of other Aussies on this board are so excited hah,

    Sure there are loads of stuff for him to play, but not that much on the older songs, which was what we discussed.:)

    I agree for the beginning of Insanity's... i tried to play it on my guitar, but sometimes I also use my thumb to play some notes, i dont see how else i could do it, so i would like to see how they play it!
    For lethe, i prefer the bass because with the frequencies of the tone and all it always makes me shiver in a pleasant way...

    I think they should have invited Sara Svensson for the Live Damage recordings, would be so amazing :headbang:

    Mikael told me that they invited a female singer to a gig once long ago. They should do it again, as they do usually play several songs that include female vocals on the albums: Lethe, Insanity's, Undo control and occasionally ...Mine is the grandeur and A bolt of blazing gold.

    Well, they have played both Ex Nihilo and The Mind's Eye on playback as intro/outro, but I admit it's not the same as actually playing them.

    Well, duh, us here on the official forum. (I thought it was obvious what I meant, but I guess it wasn't.)

    Yep, I've got the Osaka bootlegs. The whole gig is probably the slowest DT ever did, with an almost "jazzclub-like" feeling to it. Very untypical of modern DT, and certainly not fitting to any open-air venues. Still, I must say I'd like to hear DT very intimately on a small club (perhaps even unplugged!) or something like that once in my life. It's just that I don't see it happening.

    They never were as highly regarded as the songs from The Gallery, which is why they could be left out. The Gallery was their first breakthrough album, there are many people who still think "The Gallery = Dark Tranquillity". They didn't always play Punish My Heaven on the Projector tour, and many people were pissed off because of that.

    The same here. But we do not represent the general audience of DT. If I could decide, I'd make DT play songs they've never played live the next time I see them. But that's only because I've seen them play pretty much all the songs (except the brand new ones) of their current setlists.

    Well, sorry for not realizing that... :\

    You could say that C is more highly-regarded than TG, but you don't see them leaving out songs from TG in order to make more space for C songs. And the only reason TG is more highly-regarded than S (and C more than TG) is that as the years pass more and more people find out about DT and become fans (obviously). I'm sure there are many people (i'm not among them, btw) who think that S was a masterpiece and that DT = S and that they never again did something quite as good as that.

    But that's just a misconception. DT = S + TG + TMI + P + H + DD + C; you can't isolate a single album and say that DT = that album because DT is not (yet, although i think they're going in that direction lately) the kind of band to try a few different styles, settle on one and release a lot of clone albums which define the band's style.

    How about all the people who have gotten "pissed off" because they don't play Skydancer stuff anymore?

    It would be really cool if they did some kind of forum-members-meet-DT thing and they played some of the songs they've never/rarely played.
