I think you get it out most days. It's not really much of an event anymore.

pate
11-10-2006, 06:43 PM
Less than two weeks until I can get it. Can't wait.

:p

I hadn't listened to AiA in a while though.

Now, I don't have the DVD. Because the ****ing store didn't ****ing get it yet. Arggg !

Darkness
11-10-2006, 07:25 PM
I think the amazing audio quality makes up for the lack of camras... I just can't wait tell my friend comes over sometime in the next few weeks so I have another excuse to sit infront of the DVD for 3 hours. :lol:

Stormrider
11-11-2006, 09:09 AM
Ah man, that sounds amazing. I'm supposed to have it right now :(

I'll call up a store later to see if they have it, and if they do, we'll be going :)

Do you think an HMV will have it ?

Darkness
11-11-2006, 12:03 PM
HMV usually has everything, at a rather large price though.


Wow, I really hope I don't over hype this up for you guys, so you're let down by the time you watch it... I think part of the reason I liked it so much is because I had low expectations...

Stormrider
11-11-2006, 12:07 PM
Where did you get your copy ?

Darkness
11-11-2006, 12:08 PM
A place called CD Plus.

Stormrider
11-11-2006, 12:18 PM
Oh.

Well, I might go out and check the HMV later, but I won't be able to watch it today, because I'm going to see family.

Also, I came to the conclusion, that Travel In Stygians Chorus is my favorite Iced Earth chorus atm.Along with Burnt Offerings and Dracula.

Get your priorities straight man... Iced Earth just released a DVD of a legendary show they did back when they were at their prime... and you're going to see family! :lol:

Stormrider
11-11-2006, 12:21 PM
:lol: !

It's my aunt's birthday. I'll just stare at the cover and drool.

Daven
11-11-2006, 04:09 PM
So is the DVD they released is really from the AiA show??

pate
11-11-2006, 04:10 PM
Yes. It was delayed for so long because Jon didn't think the three cameras gave it high enough quality to pass his high standards for IE releases.

Daven
11-11-2006, 04:12 PM
O shi :eek:

It's like a dream come true.

Stormrider
11-11-2006, 04:58 PM
Yeah, I remember how happpy I was when Deth posted the information about this release, heh.

Maybe one day I`ll be able to watch it. :upset:

ArcLite
11-11-2006, 05:00 PM
I want it bad but I have a feeling tracking it down here will be a bitch. Think there's a chance Best Buy will have it?

pate
11-11-2006, 05:03 PM
That's my best shot as well. Hopefully they have it.

Stormrider
11-11-2006, 05:04 PM
I looked in a Best Buy yesterday, and nope. They didn`t have it.

ArcLite
11-11-2006, 05:05 PM
Anyone found it online anywhere?

Stormrider
11-11-2006, 05:06 PM
Amazon.ca had it for me. So, amazon ? or just the Century Media distro will most likely have it.

ArcLite
11-11-2006, 05:54 PM
YES. Just ordered it from Amazon so I should have it next week.

Stormrider
11-12-2006, 08:15 AM
Nice :)

I'm going to go to the HMV in the mall today. Hopefully they'll have it.

Tyr
11-12-2006, 08:15 AM
Good luck, Jammie.

Stormrider
11-12-2006, 08:17 AM
Thanks. I'll be an angry Jammie if it's not there.

Anyways, think positive !

Tyr
11-12-2006, 08:19 AM
That's the spirit.

pate
11-12-2006, 11:00 AM
So I'll hopefully be getting it next Saturday. I'll be at the Jammie level of pissed if Best Buy doesn't have it.

Stormrider
11-12-2006, 01:14 PM
Well, the store didn't have it. They sold all the 5 copies they had received. But, they should be getting more within the next week. I reserved one, so they'll call when they recieve them.

Tyr
11-12-2006, 01:20 PM
Now for the big question: how great is Jammie's rage?

Stormrider
11-12-2006, 01:21 PM
:p

Well, I wasn't sure that the store had it anyways. I wasn't really angry, just disapointed. Though, I'll have it by the end of next week, so that's good news.

Tyr
11-12-2006, 01:22 PM
I thought that you'd be really angry.

Stormrider
11-12-2006, 01:28 PM
Well, I disapoint you then. :p

First time I was angry. Now, I've gotten used to it haha

pate
11-12-2006, 01:42 PM
Six days until I (better) get mine.

Stormrider
11-12-2006, 01:49 PM
Meh, don't you have an HMV somewhere around where you live ?

pate
11-12-2006, 02:45 PM
Nope. Best Buy a half hour away is the only bet, because the shitty little record store or the Wal-Mart in my town have a combined 0% chance of having it.

Stormrider
11-12-2006, 02:48 PM
Man, that sucks :-/

You can't order ont eh internet or something ?

pate
11-12-2006, 03:07 PM
Nope. Either I get it on Saturday, or I wait until Christmas and hope the same place gets it in.

Stormrider
11-12-2006, 04:27 PM
:-/ That sucks. Hope you find it, man.

CRAP. I forgot to check if Best Buy had it when I was there today :(.

I'll assume they didn't.

Stormrider
11-12-2006, 08:46 PM
How can you forget :eek:

Deth
11-12-2006, 08:49 PM
I dunno, I was lazy. Almost bought Meshuggah's Nothing re-release but didn't even do that.

pate
11-18-2006, 10:01 PM
I got the AiA DVD!!!

Shattered_Future
11-18-2006, 10:28 PM
Oh boy...

I'm actually coming across a bit of cash in the very near future, so I'll have to pick that up if I see it.

pate
11-18-2006, 10:34 PM
Indeed you do. I'm getting ready to watch it right now. :)

Stormrider
11-18-2006, 11:03 PM
Yeah, HMV havn't called yet for me :upset:

Though, like I said, I hadn't checked in teh cd section of the Best Buy to see if it was there...like it was for you. Damn everything if it was !

Darkness
11-19-2006, 12:04 AM

I really wanna get the DVD, but last time I checked the store doesn't have it. I guess I'll probably end up ordering it online for Christmas or something.

Txus
11-20-2006, 07:46 AM
I went to the mall yesterday and FYE didn't had it nor did the other music store in there. I'm going to Best Buy probably today after school and see if they have it.

pate
11-20-2006, 12:20 PM
If you had skipped school you could have it already. :p

Stormrider
11-20-2006, 02:16 PM
I can never sit down and watch concert DVDs in one sitting.

If I'm watching it for the first time...and it's one that I really wanted, I won't have a problem sitting down all the way through.

But for thirds and fourth times and it depends...this is AiA though :p

HMV didn't call...

ArcLite
11-20-2006, 06:38 PM
I watched it for the first time today. AWESOME. I don't know what people are bitching about. Yeah, it doesn't have 40 camera views...who gives a shit, it's one of the sweetest live performances, in my book anyway, and the cameras covered it just fine. Well worth the $14 or whatever I payed for it. GO GET IT NOW! To anyone who hasn't yet (Jammie).

Stormrider
11-20-2006, 06:40 PM
I reserved a copy from HMV...I'm just waiting for them to call. Maybe I'll go look at the other store...there bound to have it by now. I could always cancel the reservation...I think.

Nobodies bitching here, everyone in this thread that has seen it loves it.

Stormrider
11-20-2006, 07:43 PM
I played along to some songs before. One of them being Birth of the Wicked. That's one of the songs I rather studio, because live it loses all it's atmosphere...any one agree/disagree ?

Darkness
11-20-2006, 07:49 PM
I haven't heard the studio. :D

Stormrider
11-20-2006, 07:56 PM
True, you havn't bought the album yet. But Night of the Stormrider > Something Wicked, so you did a good choice :)

Darkness
11-20-2006, 07:57 PM
I'm starting to love Stomrider. Not as much as Burnt Offerings though. And I can't find Something Wicked anymore... I like all the songs I've heard off of it though.

Stormrider
11-20-2006, 08:00 PM
Come to think of it...I havn't seen Something Wicked in stores in a long time. Actually, I havn't seen anything besides TGB, Blessed and the Damn and Horror Show :-/

What songs have you heard btw ?

Darkness
11-20-2006, 08:02 PM
All the ones on the DVD. I'd buy it if I could find it.

Stormrider
11-20-2006, 08:04 PM
Oh, right. That's almost everything haha :p

Darkness
11-20-2006, 08:12 PM
:lol: yeah. I like Melancholy.

Stormrider
11-20-2006, 08:46 PM
Melancholy is indeed very good. Wait 'till you hear the studio version ;)

pate
11-20-2006, 09:08 PM
That's such an example of a person singlehandedly turning a boring song into awesomeness.

Stormrider
11-20-2006, 09:08 PM
You mean Barlow in Melancholy ?

Darkness
11-20-2006, 09:09 PM
Melancholy is indeed very good. Wait 'till you hear the studio version ;)

I have, many times.

Stormrider
11-20-2006, 09:10 PM
Oh...isn't it better then the live version ?

Darkness
11-20-2006, 09:11 PM
Uh I can't remember the live version. Both were good though I think.

Stormrider
11-20-2006, 09:12 PM
Ah okay then. To me, the studio version carry's out the melancholy atmosphere much better then the live.

Though, yes, they're both great ! :)

So...I have 1200 more posts then anyone else in the thread :lol:

ArcLite

Nobodies bitching here, everyone in this thread that has seen it loves it.

Yeah, I know. I was referring to comments I've seen outside of here. "Ohhh, there's only 3 camera views so it's a waste of time." Yeah, there's more than three and the show is covered just fine.

And I'd have to agree that Melancholy is one of those that's better off the album than live.

Stormrider
11-21-2006, 04:40 PM
Absobarlowlutely. :p

Heheh okay. :p

Honestly, I hadn't seen many negative comments on the DVD...just that sound/image looses coordination half way through on 5.1 or something.

Darkness
11-21-2006, 05:24 PM
Meh, I didn't even notice. I was so floored the band coulda been naked I wouldn't have noticed.

Stormrider
11-21-2006, 05:38 PM
:lol:

The studio mix is fine though. Just the 5.1 apparently. It's hard not to notice that me thinks, so you were probably watching it in stereo :p

Yeah, you don't listen :p :-*

I went to a store 2 weeks ago, they didn't have it. So I went to the HMV and reserved a copy there. The guy told me they should receive them the week after(last week) And they still havn't. So, I'm thinking of just cancelling the reservation and just going to the first store I went to, which is almost bound to have it by now !

It's not like the reservation costed money, just go buy it at the other place anyway. HMV can go to hell for lieing to you.

Stormrider
11-21-2006, 06:14 PM
Well, he didn't say we will absolutley get it them for sure. He just said they should be getting them. Though maybe he said just so I wouldn't go somewhere else. Who knows.

But yeah, I'll see what I can do tomorrow about the other store. I'll call first though. Because it's 25 minutes away...and it's kind of annoying getting there and seeing that it's not there. Sometime this week for sure.

ArcLite
11-21-2006, 10:53 PM
Just get it from Amazon man, I had it four days after I ordered it. And that was probably for cheaper than you'll find it in a store.

Vocals in that album are ace. You're a fool.

Nostalgia
11-23-2006, 12:39 AM
Just don't appeal to me, I guess.

Stormrider
11-23-2006, 08:37 AM
The songtitles, is because the album is based on a bunch of Horror Chratacters. You don't see those songtitles in other albums.

But the vocals not appealing to you...Darn. Barlow's my favorite vocalist, and that album explains why pretty well. Not that that album has everysingle best vocal moment, just generally speaking.

But yeah, do check out Night of the Stormrider or Burnt Offerings.

pate
11-23-2006, 10:09 PM

So, I just finished watching the DVD ! Yeah, that's right :D

Pretty awsome stuff. Like Darkness said, I wouldn't have noticed it were only 3 cameras if I hadn't known about it.

One thing I noticed, you can tell where it was studio edited at times, heheh. Like, we see Barlow still screaming, but we hear no more scream :p Or vice versa.

But anyways, the DVD was kickass ! Awsome. I'll be watching this a lot.

Oh, and is smoking supposed to effect ones voice ? We see int he Backstage thing that Barlow smokes...

It's my favorite CD, and I can't find EITHER copy of it, just the cases.

I recently listened to Iced Earth for the first time.

I must say I was rather impressed. My favourite songs of the moment from them are "Wolf" and "I Died For You".

Stormrider
11-26-2006, 06:32 PM
Have you heard the albums that Wolf and I Died for You are on ?

Tyr
11-26-2006, 06:36 PM
I'm impressed, Jammie. You managed to get a hold of the DVD!

Have you heard the albums that Wolf and I Died for You are on ?

Unfortunately, no. Although it will probably be the next set of music I acquire. Because of my 56k, acquiring is a bitch. :/

Which album do you think is better?

Deth
11-26-2006, 08:59 PM
Horror Show, which Wolf is on is the finer album I think. Dark Saga, which has I Died For You is really, really weak in my opinion. Others will disagree.

Stormrider
11-26-2006, 09:11 PM
Horror Show is definitely the better album of the 2. But, unlike Deth, I don't think The Dark Saga is a weak album :p ...so yeah, get Horror Show.

I just listened to Dark Saga actually while doing my homework. Was a good listen. It does have 2 of my favorite IE songs. Slave to the dark and AQOH.

Ah, but I'm 10 years your senior, so it evens out.

Fine then :p

Darkness

So you did get the DVD? And you're not watching it? Thats the last straw man...

Stormrider
11-27-2006, 08:49 PM
Hey :mad:

:p

I just listened to Dark Saga again in my room. So much better as a whole then individual songs. Great album. I put it at max once the end of AQOH comes in. It's so amazing, when those higher choirs come in at the end of the Why Wont you let me die part by Barlow.

pate
11-27-2006, 10:43 PM
It's a horribly underrated album.

wrathchild88
11-28-2006, 07:59 AM
I finally illegally downloaded S/T, Days of Purgatory and the Dark Saga. I've listend to all of S/T and practically all of DoP so far and I was impressed by the first album a lot. The vocals were tolerable, but I'll be listening to the DoP versions from now on. I actually prefer the originals for the rest of the songs on DoP though. After I get back from a lecture, I'll listen to the Dark Saga.

Edit: How can people not like the Dark Saga!!?! While I enjoyed the songs on AiA more, the album was great. But then AiA is probably my favourite album ever. Including studio albums.

pate
11-28-2006, 10:44 AM
A lot of people don't like Dark Saga as much because it's generally slower.

ArcLite
11-28-2006, 01:48 PM
It's no doubt my least favorite album of theirs, but it's certainly not a weak one. Violate and Dark Saga are some good tunes.

Tyr
11-28-2006, 01:51 PM
I'd say it's my favourite.

Stormrider
11-28-2006, 02:03 PM
I'de say it's my least favorite along with TGB. But both of those are excellent albums nonetheless. That's why I don't like saying they're my least favorites...makes them look like bad albums, when they're most definitely not.

Deth
11-28-2006, 09:05 PM
I don't like it because it generally has the same feel throughout, with no dynamics. The vocals aren't nearly as good as any of Barlows other work (chorus to Violate, ughh) and it just feels flat.

IMO of course.

Darkness
11-28-2006, 09:10 PM
I like alot of random parts on The Dark Saga. And the first three and last three songs rock pretty hard in my books.

Stormrider
11-30-2006, 02:34 PM
Scarred is the worst IE song IMO :p ...It's a pretty cool chorus, but generally, meh, it's kinda boring.

I think Barlow does a good job on the vocals in Dark Saga. Sure, Violate chorus ain't that good, but the rest is pretty sweet...IMO. Of course, he's better on the follwing albums.

But now it's gone away until Christmas :(.

Btw, do you plan on getting the DVD sometime ? AiA that is.

I was all excited before I learned it was 3 cameras. That diminished my exuberance somewhat. I still want it, but it's not a urgent thing.

Plus, the new Manowar DVD has priority.

Dude, the 3-camera thing is not a big thing at all ! It's AiA for crying out loud ! The editing at some parts is the only thing that might bug you ! But hey, that's not a biggie either. It's a great DVD.

I'm going to watch it tomorrow :cool:

:lol: I didn't meen for it to sound mean. I haven't had the chance because of school, work, renovations, and friends. I found the BG DVD to be kind of average... specially when compared to AiA.

Stormrider
12-03-2006, 02:51 PM
Nah, I was talking about my post sounding mean. Not yours :p

But yeah, the BG DVD is great and all. But I don't see myself watching very often. Like I said, it's a great DVD. I enjoyed watching a lot. But, I've seen them live now...so :p

Wow, the DoP version of Burnt Offerings sucks incredibly. Barlows vox aren't half as juicy. And is that a female voice I hear? I'm sorry, but this is a mans song.

I had the DoP version for a while. And when I finally bought the BO album, and listened to it, I was like"Wow, this is much better"

Though, no way does the DoP version suck incredibly.

Barlow didn't do vox on BO, did he? It doesn't sound like him one bit.

I don't really like DoP much at all. I prefer the AiA versions of the non-Barlow album songs to the DoP versions.

Yes, it's him on BO.

Stormrider

Horror Show have the best IE vocals IMO. Generally speaking...

I'm listening to Burnt Offerings right now. On Diary... I need some angry music to get me pumped to quit my job today. :D

Stormrider

Hahaha :p

Burnt Offerings, the title track, is the most angry sounding song on that album IMO. That one along with the Diary. "Thorns ripping through his brow"

Darkness
12-09-2006, 09:00 AM
As well as Brainwashed and Creator Failure.

Stormrider
12-26-2006, 03:56 PM
Damn, the longest time without no posting in here has just occured :(

I'm going down to Florida by car in a few days. I happen to have a tv in the car. You can all guess what I'll be watching :)

I'll look for DoP while there. I heard the DoP version of Stormrider, and damn, does that chorus sounded horrible :-/ Orignal > DoP. For Angel's Holocaust. Even though Barlow scream is amazing, I'm starting to think Greely's scream suits the song more for some reason . I don't know...

Darkness
12-26-2006, 04:24 PM
Yeah Greelys scream is way better for that song. And you already know my feelings on Burnt Offerings.

Stormrider
12-26-2006, 04:27 PM
Where did I mention Burnt Offerings in my post ? :lol:

But yeah, basicly I was getting to the fact that so far Original Night of the Stormrider > DoP version of the songs. Better atmosphere to it generally speaking...IMO.

Oh, hehe. I've heard the DoP version of Burnt Offerings too. The chorus was still good. It's just damn, what the hell did they do to Stormrider's chorus ?

Darkness
12-27-2006, 09:26 AM
Meh, the newer Stormrider isn't that bad. The only thing that's different is the vocals, which just sound a bit louder and more in the music.

Stormrider
12-27-2006, 11:29 AM
It's just the chorus. The rest is fine.

I still rather the Night of the Stormrider version anyways though.

Darkness
12-27-2006, 11:57 AM
I rather all the originals that I've heard so far.

Stormrider
12-27-2006, 12:16 PM
The only one that I remember liking more a bit was the DoP version of the song Iced Earth. Mostly because of the vocals.

But yeah, same here.

I should download that, the original Iced Earth was brutal because of the vocals.

The original Iced Earth still owns. Vocals aren't that great, but they don't bother me. That album has some of the best IE riffs.

I like it the most out of the three albums you mentioned. The songs are better than Dark Saga (IMO), but doesn't have some of the :eek: moments that Horror Show has. It is the most consistant though.

Jack is one of the 2 Iced Earth songs I really dislike.

Stormrider
12-27-2006, 08:01 PM
horror show is my favorite out of those 3. I used to dislike Jack aswell, but recently, it really grew on me. Great song. I agree with the Horror Show :eek: moments aswell.

Inidvual songs, Something Wicked is probably better then Dark Saga, generally speaking, but I probably rather Dark Saga as a whole atm.

Something Wicked is horribly underrated.

I actually found it somewhat overrated. Many people think it's IE's best album, but there are a lot weak songs on it. Many songs start off strong (Burning Times, Disciplies Of The Lie...) and then simply plod along with barely any riff variation. Then there is Blessed are you, which is just a complete snooze fest.

However, I actually found the ballads (Melancoly and Watching Over Me) to be the highlights of the album. The Something Wicked Trilogy is pretty kick *** as well.

pate
12-27-2006, 10:04 PM
I usually don't see it mentioned in the discussion of "Good IE albums"

Yeah, it's almost everyones favorite album. So, I say overrated. But it's still an excellent album nonetheless.

And how can one call Blessed Are You a snooze fest ?! :eek: Definitely one of my favorites off the album.
