Only one new song? But the two covers could be interesting.

I'd also be interested to hear the Metallica cover, as well as the other songs, of course.

Id really like to know what these guys consider an EP and what they consider an LP, its pretty confusing.

A unexpected Metallica cover, no one saw that coming . Sounds interesting, i'll be waiting for this. It's deceiving to hear that there's only one new song though, ah well.

i think i will purchase this one

just the name is kinda funny for me, who is not used to Finnish language - "Tulimirsky" reminds me not the Finnish word "Firestorm" but a name of some Russian boyar or so

I think they've called this an EP because there is only one new song on it, the rest are all re-recordings and covers.

My interest has been piqued by this news, because I loved their latest album and it'll be cool to see how the early stuff sounds when reworked. I don't care so much for the Metallica cover though.

This has to be the longest EP ever, even it's larger than some CD.

Cool, I wonder how long Tulimyrsky will be. And the covers and re-recorded demo songs would also worth listening.

Past one hour? The demo songs clocks at 12 min on the reedition, and For whom the bell tolls is like 8 minutes? So the new song is something like 30 minute long? That should be interresting
