Exclusive download content: active from 31 July onwards

#1 Post by warchanter » 30 Jul 2010 12:59

So now I've bought ATEoT 2CD version (quick review - it IS a masterpiece), and in the 2CD version there is a card (with a code) to download videos, unrealeased tracks, etc. from this web address:

http://www.nuclearblast.de/edgeoftime

So far nothing happens when you try that page (it brings me to the main Nuclear Blast page): am I doing something wrong? Any help is appreciated.

EDIT: ok, now it does something!

It's still the 31st in the US.

I think I'm gonna get the 2 disc version, because it's only 2.50 more on Nuclear Blast USA

So this is Nuclear Blast's attempt to persuade people to buy the album instead of downloading?

That's the advantage of me buying the album coming Friday. Then this problem's probably solved.

Get the 2-disc from amazon. It's cheaper than the 1-disc version. $12.99 as opposed to $13.99.

IT'S ACTIVATED!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Edit: the 2 Videos from the CD (A Journey Through The Edge Of Time and Sacred Video Clip), Valkyries (Demo), 3 Wallpapers and a Picture Gallery.

Damn, there are no Widescreen Wallpapers but the Sacred video is pretty cool, high quality. 1 Wallpaper is the "At The Edge Of Time" Cover and 2 other Band Wallpapers. The Valkyries Demo is good.

I can't understand why they put the 2 Videos at a Bonus for people who HAVE the things on the second Disc... Better the new Videoclip of A Voice in the Dark!

I think it's a quite a poor selection indeed.

NB originally wrote " As a token of our appreciation for deciding to purchase the original Blind Guardian "At The Edge Of Time", we invite you to to download exclusive songs, videos and additional material", yet the choice of the material mostly contradicts the meaning of the word 'exclusive'.

I asked Nuclear Blast for some more download content in the future, but there will be no more stuff.
They say, there are a lot of great stuff. -> FAIL!

This reminds me of the bonus material that they put online for the Avantasia double release in april.

Totally worthless material is delivered, but you pay with important informations they need for target-advertising (don't know if this is the correct word). Just don't use your real data, if you have to activate your account. Actually you don't miss anything if you don't.

On mine it is! Second disk, audio tracks and two (mentioned) videos.

Well it is like the "screen saver" thing on ATITM, which should provide you with the newest BG news and extra stuff :roll:
