The hit just kept on coming. We played Embryonic journey to ease into the 2355 slot and then began the countdown.

It ain't Times Square, but we had a disco ball!

    “Embryonic Journey” left the setlist?…it will be news when “Song for the Fire Maiden” returns from the dark,dark corner of the setlist cavern, my friend.

    The return of Embryonic Journey. Yeah! Been waiting for that song to show-up in the set list. Nothing says happy new year than the beginning of an Embryonic Journey.
