I'm so looking forward to this. I'm sure it's going to be an excellent album, and that cover looks nice too.
It is humanity who must pay homage to the greatness of the Universe... not the Universe to the human narcissism.

My gut tells me this is going to be one of the albums of 2012. Such a great array of guest musicians, pity John 5 or Steve Vai are not guests. The artwork looks great.....CANT WAIT!!!!!!!

So... Marty Friedman is ex-Megadeth, and Chris Poland is still in Megadeth?

Sounds cool, though. I'll probably get this.

(Also, why isn't cover all orange and fiery, and why can't I see Mehrunes Dagon on the horizon, engaged in mortal combat with the avatar of Akatosh? Or is this, like... Sheogorath's plain or something? Or, wait... are those "planes"? Nevermind...)

^Chris Broderick is currently the lead guitarist of Megadeth, Chris Poland played with them back in the mid 80's I believe, too lazy to go look.

I for one am VERY stoked to see what Jeff and his merry men throw at us this time!

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.

I know, but it said (it's been corrected now) "Marty Friedman (ex-Cacophony, ex-Megadeth)", and "Chris Poland (Megadeth)", making it appear as though he was currently in the band.

Hey, it looks like Ihsahn is guesting all over the place. I can tell that this CD will host a lot of freaking talent.
