Meh. I still haven't had time to buy The Black Halo either, and now they're releasing a new ablum? Sheez, I have to start making some money to be able to buy all this crap. Still haven't even ordered Castlevania Lament of Tears soundtrack or Wild Arms from Play-Asia. Neither have I bought the new Stam1na album, and Blind Guardian is coming soon too. Well, I guess it's good to get some new material anyway, and luckily not for a while.

I agree that it will be interesting. Their trend of album goodness is a steady rise. Everytime they release an album you think that it surely won't be as good as the previous effort. But they are. So I'm wondering what this album will be like.
"Scream for me Melbourne!!!!"
- Bruce Dickinson

"I don't see any god up here"
- Yuri Gagarin (while in orbit, 1961)
