I emailed future publications this morning about my empty package. I'm interested in the response.

I wonder what the mail will have in store for me today! Probably nothing.

Yeah, nothing.

I wouldn't worry too much yet I'm from the UK and ordered the limited hardback edition of the story of tears on tape and it took 10 days from when it was dispatched to when i received it, this company seems to use the cheapest shipping option around.

At this point, I don't even care if I have it anymore. My Tears On Tape frenzy has completely died down with how long it's taking to get here. I'd rather just get a refund. I just feel stupid and ripped off that I rushed to pre-order it like I did with everything else, but it didn't even matter because it's been 23 days and I still have nothing. When you pre-order something online, you're supposed to get it on or around the release date, not a month afterwards. It's just bullshit. The magazine was what I was most excited about, but the excitement is gone now. I'll probably open it to make sure my name is on the poster like it's supposed to be, and see if I got one of those postcards, then I'll just throw it in the bin with everything else. Fuck that company. Even if I do end up receiving a package, and let's hope it's not empty so I don't have to fuck around and deal with that, I'll still feel like someone stole money from me. I've ordered plenty of things from the UK lately. They all take 10 days at the very most, with a pretty cheap shipping option at that. I don't know what it is this company uses, but it sucks ass. Not even that, I don't even really know when they shipped it out. I don't think they even know. They gave me two different dates. It shouldn't be this hard to buy something online.

If you take a look at the company's Twitter account, there are tons of people complaining about damaged items and not receiving their items. Not just the Fanpack. They know they suck. It's laughable the amount of people having problems.

Now that I'm thinking about it, my invoice from that company said they charged me $16.99 for it too, and I know my account was charged over $30 in the end...it damn sure wasn't for shipping.

I've thumbed through the magazine, but haven't read it entirely.  If you do get a refund, I'm sure the MerchNow magazine would get to you a lot faster.

I consider myself lucky given that I did receive something and it wasn't empty.  That's a damn headache and a shitty feeling.

i've seen one have arrived to italy today (no idea if it was preordered, it was a pic from Fb)
mine took a week more than other euro residents because in Spain parcels were sent to an central delivery in Spain and later to every address

but clearly there is a problem with yours, the others you can buy now doesnt come with the band poster and the names of the fans in the back

http://www.universal-music.de/him/videos/detail/video:291928/into-the-night - Into the night video. This has just been released in the UK, so I'm sorry if you have all seen it already.


Into the Night is probably my favorite video of the three. I think its just that I enjoyed seeing Ville's facial expressions...they made me smile.

It's nearly been a month and people still don't have their fan pack? It's really fucking stupid.

I guess it's a good thing that the album was as good as it was, given all of this extra shit service that's going on.

Which will come first, my Fanpack or the website? As much as I don't have faith in the website ever being finished, I think the website will.

If you guys haven't yet, you really need to take a look at My Favourite Magazine's Twitter account. Pretty much 95% of their tweets are apologizing for how shitty they are. It's hilarious. They sent one person the wrong thing, so they were given a replacement, but the replacement was the wrong thing too! Hahaha! I don't know how they're even still in business.

A lot of people wanting to cancel their magazine subscriptions too, which apparently you have to call them or write them a letter to do like it's the fuckin' 90s all over again.

We ordered it at the same time then. Makes no sense why mine still isn't here. I emailed them again just a few minutes ago. Maybe I can squeeze a free hardcover magazine out of them. Only problem is I'd probably have to wait a year to get it.

Metal Hammer told everyone via Facebook that a new series of Slipknot issues will be released in celebration of the new album. These issues are also coming from the same site that published the HIM pack. My point is that Metal Hammer obviously don't know about the troubles people have had, otherwise they would have chosen a different publishing company. Unless Metal Hammer really don't care and just chose the cheapest publishing company.

I got an email reply today from future publishing asking me to wait 7 more days for my fanpack to arrive and then contact them again if it doesn't.  I assume they will send a replacement, but I'm sure it won't include the extra poster and possible postcard (and might get here by Christmas)....Oh well, I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
