    Great news for the third Amberian Dawn album coming in full to RBN... i take it the remaining efforts from the first two albums will be released first though.

    Looks like those keen will need the lungs of an elephant to sing "suffer" from what weve seen of the preview haha.

    We still have a few songs from the first two albums that are currently in playtesting, yes, but we expect to have the first two tracks from "End of Eden" in playtesting early next week (looking like "Arctica" and "Blackbird" right now). Due to the way the peer review process works, we can't say if all songs from the first two will be available before any "End of Eden" tracks.

    All future Amberian Dawn songs that are yet to be released will contain full RBN 2.0 features. We only had "Lost Soul" in testing up prior to the switchover, but the intent always was to add keys and harmonies to it. Everything else contains keys and harmonies (with the obvious exclusion of "Dreamchaser", which is an instrumental).

    AMBERIAN DAWN CONTINUE RBN SUPPORT WITH FULL “END OF EDEN” ALBUM

    RockGamer Studios, Amberian Dawn, and Spinefarm Records Team Up to Bring Entirety of Band’s Third Album to Rock Band Network


    NEW YORK CITY, New York, March 12th, 2011 – Leading Rock Band Network content developer RockGamer Studios has made the announcement today that they have entered into an agreement with Finland’s highly respected underground metal label, Spinefarm Records, to bring the entirety of the fan-favorite symphonic power metal act Amberian Dawn’s third album, “End of Eden”, to Rock Band Network 2.0 for the Xbox 360.

    Released on October 20th, 2010, “End of Eden” marks a maturity and evolution in Amberian Dawn’s sound, with their epic soundscapes, powerful melodies, and operatic vocal performances reaching new heights across the album’s ten tracks. The lead single from the album, “Arctica”, will be amongst the first of the tracks to be released via RBN 2.0, and will make excellent use of the new features exclusive to Rock Band 3, such as vocal harmonies, pro keyboard charting, and pro drums.

    For the full press release, please visit the following link:

    I totally agree (I bought the CD on Amazon). I thank you Rock Gamer Studios for introducing me to this band. Pity the songs didn't sell as well as they deserved, especially at only 80 MSP per track.

    How do you know how many they sold? Just curious because I was wondering about that. I know that I have convinced all of my friends to DL the tracks and they think Free Spirit kicks A$$ too.

    You can put me down for some more Free Spirit, too. Especially 'Preacher Man', love that one. I saw on Facebook that they intend to put some songs from their upcoming second album on RBN, but I don't know the current state of those plans.

    I really need to check out some more Amberian Dawn, as of now I only have 'Valkyries'.

    Anyway, keep up the good work, love your stuff!

    Your wish is our command... but why stop there? Today we're pleased to announce that Anamanguchi's "Airbrushed" is the first RockGamer Studios authored track to come to the Rock Band Network 2.0, currently having passed peer review and set for release the week of March 21st.

    In celebration, we've edited together an extended-length preview video for the song, featuring gameplay footage, performance mode video, and even some shots of the band themselves taking the song for a test run and rocking it out during their recent trip out here to RockGamer HQ!

    Anamanaguchi "Airbrushed" (chiptune rock)

    If our calculations are correct, expect to see this on the Xbox 360 Marketplace on Monday, March 21st, and in the Rock Band Music Store on Tuesday, March 22nd (barring any sort of catastrophic plague on Harmonix's end).

    Thanks for your support!

    Awesome! That kind of sets a new standard for preview videos too.

    I can't wait for this one to hit the PS3.
