Still waiting for mine.
yeah, it's really only the first verse where he's a little off key [emotional], otherwise it's possibly my favorite track on the album. I like the way the kick drums keep the entire track bouyant, hammering away in harmony with those sweeping riffs on the ol' acoustic.
the drumming is a standout, however it can get a bit repetitive on some tracks with the "tribal" type rythms
Beautiful digi-book -- almost feels leatherbound. The layout, pictures, reference notes...even without the bonus CD, they've gone the extra mile for this.
One odd thing though -- where Nemtheanga is so articulate for each song passage and explanation, the opening liner notes on "The Nameless Dead" obviously weren't proof read at all.
And Unhinged actually took the pictures of the statue. Cool.
which version has Paul's artwork? and where do i get it?
both + the promo + the bits where used on the lp version
none of which I've even seen yet
the special is now sold out from metal blade
I think you'll need to find it at a distro
interesting/uninteresting trivia concerning the statue photo
I went through stacks of statues from all over europe
including pics that al had taken in former eastern europe etc (some elements of which made it into the drawing on the special cover..the torch etc)
but I ended up using a statue on a war memorial in the park where I walk my dog
....much better anyway since I could get the angles I wanted
I made about 6 versions
one of which (not my favorite) made the cover
I prefer the straighter version without the buildings on the promo cover too
should have my copies soon
got a shirt from mb this moring which they altered my design....to suit thier market
hopefully the band will get the other designs I did made up
Halfway through this album
So far it's shitting on everything (sans J.End)
My fucking copy finally arrived yesterday, have yet to pop it in though.
May try the live disc first, though.
Cool review. This definitely looks like my #1 of 2007.
Excellent review. You get a good sense of what this band & album is about when reading something as motivated as that, although....
"Much like Dark Tranquillity, they display a level of fluid mastery that is only achievable by veterans with intimate knowledge of their bandmates"
....is a little redundant. That line kinda came out of nowhere.
Top 3 of 2007 for sure. I also agree on the production score, it could not be better.
In fact, I'm going to listen to this right now at work, at my desk.
Traitor's Gate gave me a good ole BM hammering on the hwy today
had this a few days now
gallows hymn is fucking epic stuff
I'm going to listen to it for the first time today on my way to the mall...ahem...forest.
Make sure the forest isn't sold out before you go.
Oh Fuck You sir!!!
Empire Falls is my fav tune thus far.
