    I've bought all 4 of those tracks and anxiously await whatever else is in the works. Very pleased to see that more is coming, so many awesome bands! :D

    Just want to say I'll love you forever if Deathstars and/or Mandragora Scream ever make the RBN. :p

    Awesome stuff so far. The Dimmu song in testing is awesome too. I hope to see "Progenies Of The Great Apocalypse" come (maybe after RBN has keyboard support) eventually as that was the first "extreme metal" song I heard and it's been a favorite of mine since I first heard it back in 2004 :)

    Glad to see Nuclear Blast on board with the RBN.

    Sonata Arctica and Nightwish are with Nuclear Blast correct?

    If so... there is a great need for them... :D

    Yeah, don't want to get all "please bring band x", but some Soilwork and Raunchy would be pretty awesome. :) Even if it is just "Watch Out" that would be great.

    Did not realize Epica was on Nuclear Blast, or just how many awesome bands are on that label. Must hope that they keep putting stuff on RBN, then!

    EDIT: Must learn to read original post. Looking forward to seeing what other tracks you are planning on bringing to RBN! Everything so far has been great, and you can bet I'll be keeping a close eye on what else you plan on bringing. I know I'd personally prefer Epica more than anything else (Unleashed!), but really I'm just glad to see so much awesome music coming from Nuclear Blast. :)

    Well I just really want to know what albums Nuclear Blast has to offer. I mean if the OP is an actual representative of the label then why not request it straight to him. Or is it annoying :/
