    It's probably common that journalists copy the album to friends that they really trust. Just meant that a "leak" in the usual sense of the word - the music speading fast as a shark on the P2P networks and being available to everyone - hasn't happened yet.

    No idea what particular watermarking method C.M. uses, but I'm guessing it's somehow encoded in the audio and not just metadata info. I thought that the process was the same as in image watermarking, i.e. that the info still would be traceable even if the original is converted or has been ran through filters, but there probably are ways of bypassing it.

    There are no physical CD promos at all, just downloads (as far as I know).

    Well, I'll explain my theory bit more. I was talking about the advance leak. When the album hits stores, it will quickly appear in the net too but when it's also available in stores it doesn't hurt sales that much.

    I agree that blind buys can be risky investment (of sorts) and I quite rarely do those but there are some bands whose albums usually deliver and one can buy those without hearing them first. You seem to think that every band can fail. Nobody is saying that you are not allowed to test it before buying but why it should happen a month before the official release? That's just impatience or perhaps you are just a pirate whose intention is only to dl it.

    Ah, if that's your point, I totally agree, I understand the position of Century Media as I mentioned before in one of my posts.
    In other words, I do think every band can fail...it's not like DT (or other bands for that matter) ever did that, because they haven't... but it's possible, but I'll just wait just like everyone else.
    Patience is a virtue :p

    10 times to get into Fiction? Wow lol.
    U really seem to have difficulties to "understand" some albums :)
    It's a fact that I didn't love Fiction from the first minute, but as soon as I heard it three of four times I started to get into it.

    Caotico: There is something I am really curious about, since the album comes out Worldwide in the beggining of March, and the tour in the States will begin on the 4th of February, that means you are going to play a setlist plenty of new songs despite the fact that the album won't be out by that time, right?

    Not really sure, but usually one wouldn't want to play too many new songs if the album isn't already out. Guessing that there will be more WATV material in the setlist after the release date.

    Speak of the devil. All this talk about the leak made us birds of ill omen.

    I also think that if it should leak it should not be posted here that it did since those who really want to have it should search for themselves. It is only fair to those who want to wait for the official release.

    The new Orphaned Land leaked a few days ago but that album is out now.

    I NEVER READ OTHER POSTS BECAUSE THEY MIGHT BE CONTAGIOUS.

    Considering what matse just said, and I agree.
    I think it would be fair enough to open a new topic regarding WATV (but warning of course for the fact that it contains spoilers).

    I'm ok with whichever you prefer - old thread or new - but I'm going to remove posts addressing the subject of the new record leaking from now on, because it's a small step from whether to when to where to how's the quality, and it's not as if you're proving your l33t haxor skillz just because you can google search for band name + album title.

    I think it's better to have a new thread for those who've, somehow, obtained a leak; since I'm sure a lot of people don't want to read comments on the album before they've bought it. At least that's the case with me.

    And so much for watermarking :rolleyes: .

    Well people are inherently evil so it's no surprise that albums leaks.
    Guess I'll have to refrain from making comments on the actual album now.

    So i heard that the album was either recorded at or mixed down to 192Kb, which is odd since most albums in metal are done at 320 now. Just wondering if anyone knew if that was true or not????

    What you are talking about is mp3 resolution. All albums are released in 44,1khz and 16 bit. We use 24 bit when we work with the material for higher effect resolutions. We really don´t have any control over what the quality of the material leaking to the internet is - unfortunately.

    But isnt it true that the more you tamper with a file during mixing the more the resolution with actually deter? I took a couple classes of studio tech but slept...guess i pay the price by looking like a complete ass right now.lol.
