    I'd also like to know whether the announced 3rd songs by Damone, Tijuana Sweetheart & New Pornographers are still coming. If not, take them off your website which suggests that they're still coming.

    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.

    Just curious, are you planning to release anymore work of Anamanaguchi?

    I'm not really picky when it comes to them, any of their work would be great for Rock Band Network.

    I am super excited for "Dreamchaser" by Amberian Dawn. If it is released before the Andromeda tracks that are also coming to RBN, it will be the first song I will totally go crazy over on Keys.

    I hate to ask, but is there an expected release date on this song? The site says songs from RockGamer Studios will be coming out over the next few months, and the page for this song says "coming soon". I was hoping for possibly something more specific? If possible?

    Well it's about f***ing time! I've been waiting for this since it was announced probably a year ago.

    Now bring Callout and Laughtrack to RBN!

    EDIT: Well, now that we're on the subject of GH1/2 tracks, I would love Radium Eyes as well.

    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).

    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.
