Guess Jens had to put it down. Although I bet it's everywhere in the net already, but I guess the label isn't amused bout the leaks in their own forum :lol:

Nevertheless, Elysium simply is the absolute masterpiece. Listening without a pause. I already told everyone to fuck off on the weekend of the 14th cause all I'm gonna do the whole three days is listen to the album :lol:

I'm curious who's gonna be faster in delivery, nuclearblast or amazon :)

Well, I haven't checked yet "Flames & Chaos". Maybe it's in there, after all the things that were posted, I wouldn't be surprised :lol:

This is where I curse living in the US because it isn't released until the 18th, and then curse Amazon because it undoubtedly won't arrive until later than that :x

Normally, I would go Hunting High and Low like the Phoenix, searching for a music store Against the Wind, but I already know that the nearest store with a copy of Elysium is a million light years away :(

Just make sure you have your copy Before The Winter, although staring at the Winter Skies is more realxing than waiting Forever; you just need to Know The Difference 8)

My favorite song so far is "Lifetime in a Moment". Simply fantastic. I also really like "Move the Mountain". The only complaints I could find on the whole album, is that "Under Flaming Skies" is boring and "Fairness Justified" has an annoying chorus.

Also, the line about "warriors of metal standing together" in "The Game Never Ends" really makes me cringe. Damn it all, Jens!! Why?? :roll:

I only heard the album once though so I will give a full review later (not this year :lol:)

Overall, VERY impressive. Better than Polaris, and that's saying something.
