    GC is a good song. (i can't believe my implication wasn't obvious :lol: )

    radio edits don't count as songs.

    agreed with tubbs, whats the point of an official DT thread if new threads still keep getting made.. *grumble grumble*

    and about roadrunner.. having 1 good band (i would say 2 but nightwish arent doing anything atm) doesnt make them 'picking up' - they still have alot of shit on their label they need to be accounted for.. but as for opeth, mikael has said time and time again that all the songs for the album were done before being picked up by the label, so the label has nothing to do with what songs were on the album, and thus cannot be blamed for GC - which isnt a bad song, just not one of their best..the film clip pretty well sucked ass though..

    No, YOU stfu, LEMMING! :saint:
    (Lemmings are not unique to PoS, it seems)

    You have NO idea how much this pisses me off. I hate the whole remastering/rereleasing fad that seems to be going on EVERYWHERE, not just @ RoadRunner. I honestly don't feel bad about purchasing a cd, and DOWNLOADING the remaster/extra tunes on MP3 or SHN format. If these labels were smart, they'd take the extra material, and release EPs in between normal releases. Shit, stuff that came out less than 2-3 years ago is already being "remastered". It's a fucking joke, and a ripoff of the fans that are propping up these not-so-popular genres of music.

    I need to start my own company......

    J-dub, it's less time than that. Ghost Reveries came out in 2005, the remaster/re-release came out in 2006. You can't even make a joke about that shit. It's too sad.

    what really irks me is when labels pull this shit called "digitally remastered & restored"

    restored? to what? the original? so what's the difference? it's all a marketing ploy to sell old albums as new, with overcompressed, horrid production.

    Well, they are recording their new album.

    As for the DT announcement, I'm excited, just like I usually am for their new stuff. Now if only we had a release date for Paradise Lost.

    Actually, Within Temptation just signed to Roadrunner for their new album and are going to tour the US!

    Their single kind of scares me, but I'm sure the actual album will kick ass like usual.

    In that it sounds more like Evanescense than Within Temptation.

    honestly there's not too much difference between "The Silent Force" and "The Open Door" so I don't really see how that's a negative thing, since SF was a great album. If on the other hand, you said it sounded more like Nightwish than Within Temptation, I would be very worried they sold out.

    i don't really see the appeal of within temptation personally. There were a few really great songs on Mother Earth (Mother Earth, Caged, Neverending Story, ice queen... even though i'm fucking sick of tha tsong now haha). i thought silent force was just ok, and really overall lost interest in the band. not bad, not my thing.

    For once, I'm with Kenneth as far as the album's title is concerned. Sounds too much like a clichéd title by any random "19/16 Prog" band to me, and I surely hope Dream Theater prove all those people who think they are just that nowadays wrong.

    I don't know how Chick Soprano Opera Metal bands came up, but I'll just take the time to mention that there's only 2 bands of that genre that are of actual interest to me, and that's Epica and Nightwish. Everything else just seems like a bunch of crappy musicians from Europe looking for hot chicks and saying "Hey, you're hot, so you can probably sing."
    Is it a C word?

    Ouch. RR has Death, Megadeth, Sepultera, Suffocation, etc. Nightwish sucks anyway.
