Some peeps on Facebook have already gotten their second orders from Merchnow. Bullshits.

Daedalus, I waited by the tree with rope in hand for over an hour.  I went back home when you didn't show up.  I figured you had already died by papercuts.  That's what I plan to do if I don't get this shit on Monday.

I contacted MerchNow 2 days ago and they said to me that they have some problems processing all the HIM Orders because it were A LOT.
But they assured me that I would get a shipping confirmation within the next two days. You hear they assured me that and now 3 days after I didn't got shit :/.

I guess they just started to late on processing them and now they have some problems getting them all on the way. My brother living in the same city as I do got a shipping confirmation 4 days ago O.o
I don't understand the logic behind that.

There weren't that many. Remember, there were 2000 deluxe copies available...they only ran out of those about two weeks ago. Same goes for the vinyls, there were only 500 of each, plus the 500 of each of the new colors that arent' sold out or even shipping yet.

I'm very pleased with the album. All in all it sounds complete and of high value, something I missed in VD and Screamworks.

If it comes to criticizing I don't think that the interludes are necessary. "Unleash The Red" is a good intro for live performances which really builds up excitement, but on the album All Lips Go Blue is a good starter nevertheless. Love Without Tears is the song to get into an euphoric mood.

When I first heard the Helldone performances of I Will Be The End Of You I had a feeling that it ends up like Killing Loneliness, which was one of the first songs of Dark Light played live and switched that initial sound to a very very polished one on the album. And my doubts are partly vindicated, though the turn isn't bad. It kicked ass back then and now it's smoother, solid and has calmer vocals.

Tears On Tape instantly reminded me of Dark Light. Both title tracks, this one a bit heavier, a bit faster and not as shallow as DL. Into The Night is catchy as hell can be, on the same level as Love Without Tears.

Heart At War, No Love and WLSTD need some more air time to judge, "that's right"! Trapped In Autumn and expecially Lucifer's Chorale are not needed to pass on to the next track. I like the Drums in Kiss The Void and the outro sounds pleasantly unagitated, like something after the (love metal-) storm. In conclusion I would have dropped these 3 and just release the album with 9 tracks and the intro.

What is this Metal Hammer hardcover I've seen being posted about here? I haven't heard anything about a hardcover version of anything HIM related being released this year?

Could someone clarify this?

EDIT: Also, I received my Merchnow bundle yesterday afternoon.

Love Without Tears should definitely be a single just saying.

Indeed. Ville said that before they decided to do diff singles in each territory, LWT was going to be THE single.

Btw,idk if anyone had brought this up but the studio songs..isn't it weird they basically did a single from each album except dsbh and decided to do two from LM? I really would've enjoyed pretending. This also makes me think there's more and adds hope to a full DVD or something

My Merchnow bundle was shipped 2 day priority mail, I didn't ask for that or pay extra.
I don't know why it's taking so long for everyone else to get it.
They smashed the poster jamming it into the tube but it's no big deal, I don't care about the poster.

I'm getting annoyed with the hard cover version of Metal Hammer.  It's been over a month and nothing.  Also, contacted the site which it was purchased from, the UK one and no response from them within a week.  About to call my credit card company and have them refund me.  Also, I live in Syracuse, NY which is only 1-2 hours from Albany so I'm surprised I haven't received my package yet.

- Anyone else in the states not receive their hard cover metal hammer or just me?
