I wonder which version of The Dark Third they will perform. Probably the UK version as that's where the show is.
And not play "Nimos and Tambos"? I doubt that. Isn't that the only difference?

The UK version has The Twyncyn/Trembling Willows, the US version replaces it with Arrival/The Intention Craft, to which my last post alluded.

I haven't seen Nimos And Tambos in their recent setlists ... but then again, its counterpart in that spot on the UK tracklist, The Exact Colour, hasn't been there either. I'd love it if they did all the songs from the US and UK editions, and the three bonus tracks from the European edition (In Aurelia, Borgens Vor, Golden Clothes), but that's going way into the realms of fantasy.

I have the European edition with everything - glad I sprung for it at the time.

I should make my own version with all the songs. That would be epic.

I just feel like "Nimos and Tambos" is their biggest song, but maybe I'm completely off on this.

Nimos wasn't even a single to the best of my knowledge. I'd suggest that probably their most popular song is Deus Ex Machina.

Yeah, Nimos is popular around here, which is awesome. I think The Dark Third's best known tracks more widely are Apprentice Of The Universe and The Bright Ambassadors Of Morning.

The Bright Ambassadors Of Morning is probably their signature tune.

I loathe this song. It sounds like Trent Reznor going prog.

That being said, Dark Third is great stuff and I will miss them even though they abandoned that album's sound along the way.

I don't think it sounds like NIN or Reznor at all. It actually has a melody.

Really dig this new song. Kind of bittersweet, knowing that (for the foreseeable future anyway) this band won't be making this great music anymore.
