They don't need to re record it though! I get the feeling it won't have the original feel if they do re record it. After all, the whole album doesn't even take itself seriously half the time

Digging: Nyss - Princesse Terre

This is weird, considering I've been doing a discography listen of them.
I was never a big Ecliptica fan, but hearing it with decent production would be interesting. I'll
definitely check this out, even though I'm not too huge on the band to begin with. The cover alone has
me interested.

I think it's a good idea! The original has some flaws (like Tony's singing in the opener) that could
be corrected in this new version. Maybe playing this will make them remember how to play power metal.

Digging: Paradise Lost - Medusa

Considering that Pariah's Child was supposed to be them "returning to their roots" maybe it'll produce a better album. Ecliptica does have decent production anyway

Yeah but after hearing the beautiful "Larger Than Life" Ecliptica might get better (speaking of vocals). I hope they'll include "Mary-Lou".

Larger Than Life was definitely a step in the right direction but it still had some awful moments. The entire album was too cheesy but it could get better. I do get the feeling that Tony has worn out his songwriting capabilities now that the majority of that duty rests on him now

I'm interested. Wish they'd post a track that gives us an idea of what it'll sound like.

it's so disappointing from this preview. Can't see myself giving it more than a 2.5 or something but writing a review for it
will be fun

I think I will end up listening to it more than I think, the samples grew on me.
