The "falling star" that's featured on Polaris' artwork is also featured on Elysium's artwork. This possibly hints towards a conceptual link between the two albums.
On Polaris, there's a two-part song called Emancipation Suite (1. Dusk / 2. Dawn) detailing a story of a hero who wants to save his land from evil, and wages a civil war (that's my interpretation).
Wikipedia wrote:Elysium was a section of the Underworld (the spelling Elysium is a Latinization of the Greek word Ἠλύσιον Elysion). The Elysian Fields, or the Elysian Plains, were the final resting places of the souls of the heroic and the virtuous.
If that's the case, and if Polaris and Elysium are linked conceptually, then that's why.

Jens, any chance you got inspiration for Elysium from Fields of the Nephilim Elizium album? Unlikely, but it's an awesome album and it would be totally cool.

For those interested to know what Elysium is:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elysium

And for the FOTN Elizium album: ...well fucking google it I can't get a decent enough link, lol.

Well, mayhem, I can tell you that I'm really surprised to see people that knew nothing about the elysium or greek mythology, but I suppose it is about interests and if you like it or not. I have been always really interested in ancient greece.

On that paige it sais that the order contains "CD + Bonus 12 Zoll Maxi-Single"
Is this the same 12" single that is available along with normal single?

I think the info given by Grooves-inc is wrong. As I see all Collector's Editions released by Edel is CD+7". You can check Collector's Editions of Gamma Ray and Kamelot, both are CD+7" cardboard sleeve packaging.

Also check this one:
http://www.grooves-inc.com/stratovarius ... 58837.html
Grooves-inc gives the same wrong info.

Of course, the content of 7" will not be the same with that of the 12" single.

:) I am thinking of using the Emoticons for a chorale work-piece and I will call it "Emote dreams in reality" and it will be a polychoral composition. The Emoticons will sing a capella.
In short I will use all the red ones as basses, the yellows sing alto, and the blue are tenors. Maybe I can have a sopranosaxophone as soloist, together with a falsetto and that will be the bigrinumbrella.
