FNAC has no prediction as to when they'll have tickets. The Post Offices have been a mess and I ended up buying mine at Media Markt (1st floor, next to the CD's); you need to exchange it for a ticket at the venue, but that's usually peaceful.

Hi, interesting that you know POVERTY´S NO CRIME. They are from the area in Germany I come from. I have seen them live several times.

Have you seen Theo´s videos performing three tracks from the new album on youtube ?

I love PNC! I discovered them recently via perfectprog.com radio. I have two albums: One In A Million and The Chemical Chaos. I love everything they've done on those two albums. I'm thinking of getting Slave To The Mind soon...and yes I've seen the videos! Impressive...

Hi, SLAVE TO THE MIND is one of the albums I like most. But the song I like most is on ONE IN A MILLION : Ancient Lies. And I hope to see them live this year - if they play somewhere. The last gig was in their hometown at a festival (RELOAD) but I had no time.

This year I'm only looking for Threshold 8.9. in Prague (Czech Republic) and maybe I'll go again to Prague to see Symphony X, but without Dream Theater :-(

Hey FG, I think I still have PNC's first or second album (it is called "The Autumn Years"), if you want it drop me a private message, we can do some interesting business!

Actually, to be correct I first found out about PNC on a CD sampler from French Hard Rock Magazine (for the record it was on a CD sampler of the same magazine that I first heard Threshold with the song Freaks). The song was "Just A Dream". It's hard for me to say which is my favourite song because they have so many incredible melodies.

I've heard a lot of good things about Slave To The Mind. I will put it on my to get list. The only thing that put me off about that record is the strange album cover. Any ideas why it was done like this.

To be honest, I don´t know what the album cover is about. The first song ACCESS DENIED was the opening song for concerts even when ONE IN A MILLION and THE CHEMICAL CHAOS were in the stores. Very good album with the former bass player (he has got soooooooooooooooooooooo long fingers ) and the former keyboard player.

My problem with the lyrics is that I simply don´t understand most of the things. As you can see or read I can make myself understood but there is a lot of vocabulary missing, especially when talking about more colloquial (right word ?) English.

I guess the next one will be Amorphis sometime in september...

I'd love to see Threshold in Finland someday...
but I quess that's not gonna happen anytime soon Not enough Threshold fans here...
I was blown away by Kamelot this summer. It was theif first time in Finland and audience liked and band liked us too a lot. They said they'll be back. Thomas wrote their tour diary that their ears were ringing after Tampere gig

I would like to see Kamelot-Threshold tour... or Queensr˙che - Threshold tour... daydreaming...

RUSH and Blutengel in October
Fish and maybe Amorphis (have to hear what they're like these days) in November
Dead Soul Tribe in December

and Threshold in September....!


Poverty's No Crime is one of the few bands I like since ages, but have never seen live before - they don't gig very often, do they? And if, mostly local shows it seems. What they need is a good support tour - and thinking about it; with Threshold they would have matched just perfectly.

As with most Prog Metal bands the lyrics are quite deep and intellectual. It does take some time to make sense of what the song is about...sometimes, but in the end it is very rewarding.

You're right and it seems that because a lot of the members recently had kids, which might be one of the reasons why they might not be touring a lot. On another note I think the singer Wolker Walsemann could have a lot in common with Richard West. Just check out the lyrics on One In A Million, a lot of them have to do with flying!

Just be to PNC's website and it says that the new album Save My Soul will be released end of August!

Great news! And yes, I did notice quite a few parallels, lyrically and musically, between PNC and Threshold, too.
