    This will be the first album I've ever PRE-ordered in my life. I want it in my hands as soon as humanly possible. Usually I wait until there are several CDs I want to minimize shipping costs, but that's not going to happen this time!

    This is great news! I haven't looked forward to an album like this in a long time. I'll preorder it too, and the fam will be singing along and rocking out with them all by Christmas - well, not sure it we can make it through the Great Escape :)

    Hello everyone,
    I've been following this thread for some time now. Ever since I heard Mercy Falls I've been a huge fan- thanks for the great music and the updates.

    My only question- does anyone know where I might be able to pre-order the album from that will deliver to an FPOAP address, as I'm currently deployed to Afghanistan and cannot wait until I get home to have this CD!!!
    Amazon will deliver here, will they have the CD for pre-order?

    This will be the 3rd CD I have ever pre-ordered...Dream Theater and Iron Maiden being the first 2 :D

    Thanks again guys!!!

    how about instead of a normal teaser we get something different?
    for example the mercy falls album cover was some great stuff, it took forever but i found a flawless copy big enough to fit my monitor, so how about instead of a teaser we get the album cover or some art from the album in typical monitor resolutions?

    GRAAAAAAAAANDIIIIIII! thanks for the news, even if I cannot wait....
    Therefore December will be ok as my little son (Andrea) is singing 1-2 baaaaby since one month so I'll discuss with his teachers (we have not Miss Angel, sorry)
    to prepare a special XMas reads in their elementary school, a great (escape) chorus where every child will sing along "leeet me staaay yoooouur allleeeeey caaaat..."
    will be a sure success

    I'm very curious abt "the wiseman" lyrics indeed ;-)) and anxious for the cd launch release party in Sweden / fans convention...

    I'm anticipating the date of the release party... if it's in the general area of Stockholm then I'll do my best to go abroad for it. I've been planning on meeting up with someone in the area, anyway, and this would probably be perfect for it. :D

    Nah, not exactly. There were some fades and transitions etc that we didn't set until the actual master so I did guess a bit. I don't have the new times here with me right now, but I do remember that the total length was 68 minutes and 2 seconds or 68 minutes exactly.

    Hey Andreas,

    Since you didn't make an announcement that the titletrack will be divided into seperate chapters, is it correct that I assume that the 'epic that ends all epics' ;) stayed in one piece?

    Yes sir!

    That was my intention all along and I am happy noone tried to change my mind.
    I can't remember the exact length but I am 99.9% sure it landed at 30:21.

    I think it turned out very well too.
    It was a conscious decision to make sure that all styles we've ever tried as well as some new flavors were in there and I think it turned out that way. Some stuff is definitely things that we've never tdone before and it also contains some magic moments in the manner that we are used to doing stuff.
    Can't wait to let you all experience it!
