Re: Blind Guardian's 10th Album, "Beyond the Red Mirror"

The orchestra cover the guitars sound sometime if not usually and this is pretty clear in songs like "at the edge of time", "the throne", "the grand parade". Is this really all that surprising to people? A full sized orchestra is around 100 instruments. Compared to 2 guitars, yeah, the orchestra wi...

Re: Blind Guardian's 10th Album, "Beyond the Red Mirror"

Well, I'm guessing those versions are only available on the 10" vinyl from the Earbook, which means you'd need a record player capable of ripping the songs to a CD. I have one, but didn't buy that version of the album. Quality would probably be bad anyway. It's too bad they didn't do what they did w...

Re: Blind Guardian's 10th Album, "Beyond the Red Mirror"

So I bought the 2 LP red splatter vinyl. Sides A, B, and D sound great. Side C sound really awful, kind of muddy. There's nothing on my needle to cause it (why would it only affect one side and not the other 3?), and the amount of dust/minor debris is pretty equal on every side. Did this happen to a...

Re: BTRM song poll (make 3 choices)

Frankly speaking, I could totally do without religion on this album... Religion is okay, especially as their own theme in their own way like others have mentioned. What I'm worried about is people dumbing down BG's ideas to fit their own religious beliefs. "oh it's about a savior of mankind, just l...

Re: BTRM song poll (make 3 choices)

Of course there are religious overtones, and it shouldn't be surprising to anyone. The character is referred to as "The Savior" on many occasions and as a "sacrificial king" in Distant Memories. People are going to bring up more similarities with Christ, I'm sure, but we won't know how similar it is...

Re: Blind Guardian LP10

Can anyone make out the lyrics surrounding this lyric from At The Edge of Time?

"They call me a ???

Followed by two more lines I can't make out.

Really like how that part is sung and sounds overall.

I think I remember them mentioning they were drawing inspiration from Savatage in an interview, and I can definitely hear it in Grand Parade. It's great, I love it. Savatage ruled.

Probably Wheel of Time. BG has always kind of inspired me to read. The Illiad, Silmarillion, and Dragonlance for example (Dragonlance was a combination of BG and my friends reading it, though).

Again, perhaps you don't perceive the beep in CMN as a piercing tone that threatens to make your ears bleed, but it makes my head ache. And it lasts for about 15% of the song. In my book, that's more than a deal with it. The Wheel of Time stuff is whatever. The clicks are odd but don't hurt the son...
