Blind Guardian

Discuss BG here.
The Wicked One

I heard they made a song and put it in some German RPG if they keep making songs like that I will enjoy their next album.

Concerning A Twist in the Myth. The only song that truly felt like Blind Guardian was "This Will Never End" and a little bit of "Otherland" while the rest was tolerable to likeable for me, i want the next album to be closer to what they did during Imaginations From the Other Side
Aggelos Poneros

I really like A Twist In The Myth.
Specially 2 songs: Fly and Another Stranger Me.

I find Blind Guardian can get boring after a while,
Amazing at first but it wares off.

Great live, though.

Finally someone younger than me.  Cool

But yeah, The way I got my parents to let me was I showed them articles about an Irish festival thats really rough. And then explained to them that Wacken isn't, and most other festivals aren't. They had a fixed idea because of one festival.
Aggelos Poneros

Buy were not alone there, right?
The Sexiest Metalhead

Blind Guardian are pretty good. Hansi's voice is amazing. I'm a fan of thier first three albums, but I do like some songs after those. They bore me at some points, but a good band none the less.
Tainted Innocence

i like demons and wizards more then blind guardian though.
i preffer johns more agressive rhythems then buncha solo's

I do enjoy Demons and Wizards more than Blind Guardian.
Tainted Innocence

its impossible not to.
Aggelos Poneros

Go to Demons&Wizards topic please! Smile
Tainted Innocence

...NO!
fineeeee i will...
The Wicked One

idk Tainted Blind Guardian has come up with some really heavy stuff in their time.

listen to I'm Alive, Tommy Knockers, Bright Eyes, Another Holy War, And the Story Ends, Somewhere Far Beyond (entire album), Battalions of Fear (album) and Valhalla. Especially Valhalla.
Shorty

Imo one of the best bands in the world Smile
First is Maiden
second Iced Earth
and finally third Blind Guardian Very Happy
Tainted Innocence

i would move the whole list down and put nightwish up at the top XD

When I saw BG live, I also talked to Hansi, I told him I've been a huge fan for years, and wish I'd meet him and Schaffer together one day. Razz It was the last show in Austin on the 06 tour.

Harsh...Nightwish is up there for me...but so is BG, so, touche!
The Wicked One

not harsh. really. I just like BG more.

If i said Nightwish is shit to Epica, then THAT would  be harsh. (totally not true) Though Epica's singer is a little hotter imo.
Tainted Innocence

eh,everyone is entitled to their oppinions.

i find BG to be a little to cheesy to listen to alot of it.
Feaněs

Well I really like Guardian, they are very important to me....
I like every album and it is beside IE my favourite band.

Many say they are too weak, and the sound is not heavy enough, but the sound is just how BG sounds like, what do you think about their sound, I think it is heavy enough for this kind of Metal....  Question
Sentinel

Great band, I own a couple of albums of them and also a live dvd. My favourite album would be "A Night at the Opera", that's a awesome album. "Battalions of Fear" is another favourite.

The only complainment I have is that in many songs they ruin the chorus by making them sound too happy.
Feaněs

"Nightfall in Middle Earth" is the best album for me.....

Well, yes, sometimes, the chorus looses his power in being a little bit too happy when it is about serios things.
Aggelos Poneros

I like  "A Twist in The Myth" :]

This was the concert I went to, very small place in Austin, it was like a private concert, it was NUTS!  I was right beneath Hansi, and a little to the right. I'd say there was 50 to MAYBE 75 people there, at tops. It was also my first concert, was so awesome!
Aggelos Poneros

Nice^^
I want to go on Blind Guardian Sad

Probably something along the lines of

"Because I'm fucking Hansi; the lead singer of Blind Guardian!!"
Feaněs

haha!

Well I guess that would be really bad....

But from what I heard, Hansi was probably friendly and stuff, nice guy like you know...  Confused

BUT SCHAFFER would have said something like: "cause I'm fucking Johnny, who walks this earth tenthousand years or more, I was born on the sixt day, of the sixt month; IN THE SIXT HOUR!"  Laughing
Aggelos Poneros

I think they're both actually normal.
So no fucking Hansi and fucking Jonny X]
But I never met them, that's only my opinion.
Kanadwen

I met Hansi at the Austin concert, really friendly guy! He looked pimp in his blue jean jacket! Razz The first time was waiting in line for it to start, which was outside leading down the street, and he was walking by with someone I didn't know, but it seems that I was only one who noticed him, I was like "Heya Hansi!" and he came up, greeted me, shook my hand, and said hes real excited that I came to the show. No one else really cared that he was right there, I was like omfg! Then after the concert, I went up to him and told him it was a fucking awesome show and he said I'm glad you enjoyed it, then I left, with not being able to speak right for about a week due to screaming the lyrics! Razz God forbid if I ever land front row at a Iced Earth concert!

Well that's great, I'd wish I would have met him too, he is one of my heros...beside Schaffer of corse.

The Wicked One

hopefully a stepback towards their older material.

Sacred is a good song. Need some more speed metal in it though.
Feaněs

well i hope so too, I actually hope they go back to their style at "Imaginations from the other Side" and "Nightfall In Middle Earth", but I think they will surely give their very best, and do what they can to make an awsome album for themselves and their loyal servants

The LH demos kick some serious ass. I found them a while back, and reviewed one on www.metal-archives.com

One of the best demos I've ever heard. I wish BG was still like that.

I love those guys! BG ftw!

anyone else waiting impatiently for the knew album? what I know from metalhammer and other vids from the studio, its going to be a monster of an album with tracks to make your balls harder than stone...
The Wicked One

So far I'm impressed. As long as it is better than A Twist in the Myth, I was gonna be happy.  

But this blows me away.

Listening to the new single, and my opinion:

A Voice in the Dark > everything since Imaginations. If the rest of the album is like that, then I'll be a very happy man (again).
The Wicked One

http://www.bravewords.com/news/142033

this link gives a track by track description.

Can't wait to get this album!
Feaněs

ok...I went to the store, the they it came out...I think I've heard the new album 'AT THE EDGE OF TIME' about 6 times since that and it IS an amazing, fantastic album.
I knew that it would kick my ass...but its far more epic, than I'd ever thouhgt it would be.
what I like very much about the new album, is that there are finally songs about fantasy novells, stories again. For example the 'Wheel of Time' saga from Robert Jordan or 'Fire and Ice' Saga from George R. R. Martin.
SO I DO think, that this album is absolutely great...nothing more to say.

did any of you listen to it already?
The Wicked One

I have the single on order. The North American Brethren have to wait nearly a month. I could probably youtube it but I'd rather hear it from my car stereo first and formost.

Did that with Of Doom and Death, I'll do it with At the Edge of Time.

btw anyone check out the A Voice in the Dark video?

I hate it when songs are cut up to fit in a video.
NightCrawler

Got it today and the only thing I have to say is one simple but very well fitting word: Brilliant! I really didn't expect that since I disliked - well, dislike is the wrong word, let's say less entertaining - their last 2 works. Couldn't find one filler song yet. Easily one of this year's better albums so far.

Quote:

Aye. The record label bastards seem to like videos to be radio friendly I guess. I'd love to see a uncut music vid for a 20 minute epic Wink
But in the end I don't care about it at all as I'm not a great fan of music videos.
The Wicked One

Ive had the album for a while now (still hasn't left my car).

Don't forget about the Micheal Moorcock's Stormbringer series. Classic right there.

I am surprised they made Sacred Worlds sound so much better, than the original 'Sacred' song.

Anyone else dig Tanelorn (into the void)? Might be my favorite song on the album.
Feaněs

fuckin great song, Tanelorn(into the void) is one of my favourites on the album. I love the beginning of the first verse...

I have to say....I LOVE 'wheel of time'. The book is just awsome and the song grows better every day on me...

the music vid to voice in the dark; well I too, hate it when they cut together good songs to fit the fuckin' vid....stupid but yeah...thats how it always is (mostly)
I'm very excited to see them live in october and expirience the new songs live. I've seen 'sacred' live in 2009, but I hope they play more songs from the new album...
Aggelos Poneros

THEY'RE COMING TO CROATIA!

Mine too, together witch Sacred Worlds and Voice in the Dark.
Must admit though that the bonus disc is quite meh...
The Wicked One

I was hoping it would be more like the old Blind Guardian demos.
Like the old ones it had different lyrics but the lack of production value didn't really make the songs sound heavier.
Feaněs

well you mean the older CDs like Majesty or Follow the Blind?
don't actually know what you mean by that
The Wicked One

Well I might just show by example. Some of the demos have different lyrics and the lack of production (add ons, layering) make it sound different and for those who like some good old NWBHM with its imperfect charm makes it sound awesome.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VARys4t4mic

This is a good example. Like the demos or pre-production songs on the Deluxe edition for At the Edge of Time, there are different lyrics. But the overall music has a different feel.
