01:41 - Unhealer I checked out your track for the collaboration Reaper. The only thing that doesn't work quite well is the guitars, the rest is fine and it is quite a catchy tune :) Also, it would be better if you decorated the drumming a bit.
01:29 - Draven Edge AR, yah, there are some awesome VST's to be found. World instruments, ambient soundscapes, choirs. Midi gives me lots of options
01:15 - ANGEL REAPER boy i havent played on real keyboard like for 10 years now ....
01:12 - ANGEL REAPER for most stuff i use the basic sounds/mix effects and it turns out great ! however i do like some of VSTs you showed me ...great stuff ...

Italian melodic power metallers Vision Divine, the brainchild of ex-Labyrinth mastermind Olaf Thörsen, have posted the following message on their official web site :
"We are sorry and shocked for what just happened. Without any , and even worse, after many promises from third parties who were managing the tour, we discovered just now, once arrived in the USA, that the Latin tour won't take place because of too many problems with flight tickets and many other things that are even impossible to be explained. We are simply shocked and surprised by seeing how things have been managed. We feel ripped off as surely should feel those who already bought tickets to our shows. We are also gonna sue somebody for what happened, but this won't change the mess.

Finland's Nightwish has issued the following update via their homepage :
"Today (Friday, September 15), Nightwish enters the studio to begin recording the new album. Jukka starts the process by recording the drum parts in the next 5-6 days. Then guitars, bass and demo keyboards, followed by orchestral/choir recordings. After those, the final synths and vocals will be recorded. The whole process will last six months minimum, so we should have the final master copy in our hands sometime during the spring."
