    I like the song overall but the chorus sounds pretty gay...not gonna lie.

    After listening to Stand Up And Fight a couple of times, the album seems very promising to me. It sounds quite good.

    I'm a little disappointed that the album won't be released in North America in February though. I was looking forward to listening to it on the trek to the Turisas show. :p

    I don't like the chorus, but the rest of the song is pretty good.

    Amazing how, with a new album coming up, this forum instantly becomes such a lively place. ^^

    One hour. or something. then you have the translation.
    but well, I think now that the first review is up, I can finally state that I also already heard the full album (because I do work as press, too), and can really really state that you shouldn´t base your thoughts or expectations on the coming reviews because the album does have many different kinds of sounds and appearances and at times, at leats for me, it´s hard to put the heard song into the most suiting words...

    EDIT: god I hate translating reviews, it´s so difficult >.<

    Okay, I literally FOUGHT my way through the review, because of all these "uptempo" comments it was hard - and it´s been somehow sooo technically written.
    Therefore: just sense-wise translated, not word by word.
    Also I cut off that long introcution thingy that is quite not useful if you´re interested in the song-descriptions (okay okay, I admit, I was just too lazy XD)

    Thanks a lot!
    Sounds like it will take quite a few spins to fully absorb the songs. Which is a good thing.

    Most interesting part is the whole accordion subject. Since the sound will be different with all those choires and fanfares and stuff, I don't think I will miss the accordion to much on the record (but who knows what will happen once I get the cd). And it will be interesting to see how it will translate into a live experience.

    it needs definetely more than one spin to really be able to dig deep - I can only talk about myself, but I had the feeling that during the pre-listening I wasn´t fully able to really get the complete broadwith of the album because it is, as that reviwer also said, pretty complex music-wise.

    So having finally listened to Stand Up and Fight I have to say I fucking love it and I cannot wait to be bellowing it out when I see them in March.

    And the chorus is epiiiiiiiiiiic.

    I'm such a fanboy.

    I love that they're moving into a more "movie music" direction. I'm just really diggin' this kind of epicness, if you know what I mean. After listening to Stand up and Fight, I am sure that this is going to be one kickass album.

    I can't wait till it's out, just one more month to survive 8)

    well, there were certain lucky press-people to hear it at two pre-listenings esp for press-people (one in germany and one in finland), and those only heard it already completely.

    the rest of the people only hear the stuff from that download-thing and noooooow Stand up and Fight can also be listened to on myspace...

    I'm still kinda worried that they might have overdone the orchestra. It's merely a tool for the band, not the tool.
    Oh well.. time will tell.

    @ kilon,

    You've only heard one song. I wouldn't worry until I had heard the entire thing, if I were you ;-)

    (it's pointless to discuss the album's sound based on one track alone imho)

    no need to worry imo, there are a lot of orchestrations, but I don´t think it´s overdone...

    yaps, because one song doesn´t tell a thing in this case here ;)

    The track Stand Up and Fight sounds amazing!

    Though, TVW in my opinion is a classic. It's going to be DIFFICULT to follow up an album such as that.

    I just checked Nuclear Blast's webshop, seems like that's the only place you can pre-order the album already, and there are 3 versions:

    CD
    CD + LP
    2 CD

    I suppose the 2CD is the "limited digibook", but it this goes the way it went with TVW there are might be a lot more versions of the album out :rofl:
