    ^ Maybe hitting the cab with his guitar was part of his solo, who knows!

    Yeah, it's not like there was a huge surprise when PL came out. Like 5 years between Odyssey and PL.... I would love it if they took a step back in the style they're playing. I mean not as "rough" and "heavy" sounding. Eventhough I know they like what they're doing now...

    Really, I'm not expecting this album this year, and don't think it's gonna be different from paradise lost, as the band said the direction they would give the album would be like PL.

    I don't wanna speculate much, but (for fun's sake) my guess is that it will be released by the end of this year and that it will be a more dynamic and proggier PL.

    The song themes won't be that connected with each other. They will try to keep it versatile at this point and try to show each of their sides: the proggy side, the power side, the neoclassical 'Damnation Game' side, and the heavy PL-like direction which they'll most probably maintain. Expect some heavy-ass tracks; but also expect some slow tasteful passages, acoustic guitars, and soft singing. There will be no orchestral prelude, but there might be an epic 20 minute track.

    I think it will be something like

    1. 2 minute orchestral into
    2. 6 minute pop song
    3. filler
    4. filler
    5. decent ballad
    6. filler
    7. decent heavy track
    8. filler
    9. another decent ballad
    10. an okay 10-minute song with an anti-climatic ending

    but I'm hoping

    1. 1 minute acoustic intro
    2. 7 minute pompous melodic keyboard-heavy single
    3. 4 minute soft song, like the accolade 3 or something
    4. 40 minute epic

    huhuhu.

    Which uses themes from Scriabin's Poem of Fire in the way Divine Wings used themes from Holst's Mars. Mmmm...

    How the hell is it that metal bands release 'singles'? Pointless in my opinion.

    Raise hype and interest for the whole album I'd presume? Near every other genre does it, so metal bands must feel they need to aswell.....

    What's wrong with singles? No sense in limiting yourself to just the album format.

    I never found a use for singles personally. Cool if you are into that, but I think its just wasted money and have personally never bought a single!

    It's probably going to come out in late fall or early winter, but it will be this year!

    okay, but who in the metal scene actually goes out and buys a single or requests it on the "radio"?

    it's certainly a ghost left over from the import of other genres but it's vestigial at best.

    so what is a "single" today anyhow ? Something you can make a video for... is that something new ? Something that can get played on the heavier radio stations.... is that something new ? now if someone writes such a song that might be commercially acceptable, does this mean they did it on purpose ? or realized afterwords that it had the right groove and sound for such an application ?

    Yeah I don't know really what I meant with single. Something like the serpent's kiss for paradise lost I guess? Music video + use it for promoting the album and shit. Remember paradise lost actually got some commercials running.

    I didn't know serpent's kiss was a single. A track being broadcast in the radio (before the album release) or used in a music video doesn't make it a single. My understanding is that a single is a track (or more) officially released for sale separately from the whole album. It has promotional value and seems to me as more of a "popular music" thing. I don't see the point from a metal band releasing singles, especially prog bands.
