Re: Forgotten Bard Songs ---- Most underrated/overlooked son

Andreas, my vision is exactly the opposite at some points :D To me, the climax in the album comes here(At The Edge Of Time), cause the protagonist faces his inner war. Everyone has his inner war inside himself, so I find the song as the true climax here... That's why "The Prophecies" and "At The Edg...

Re: Forgotten Bard Songs ---- Most underrated/overlooked son

It's my favourite song on the album too, probably the most intense song on the album to me! Everything is so giantic and gentle here and it's so beautifully leading to the climax in the album - the last minute of the song, which is the best opera part I have ever heard! It's interesting how this son...

I like Ashes of Eternity. But I can see why people do not like it. It is a bit more straightforward faster song, does not have many "epic" elements and the chorus strays from the usual BG formula; most lines are a non-overdubbed Hansi singing and no high notes or something like that. The chorus sou...
