Re: Blind Guardian's Twilight Orchestra - "Legacy of the Dark Lands" (The Orchestral Project)

Just listened to it 3 times. There were definitely some great moments. For instance, when he says "Find the key to be Free" I was overwhelmed. Goosebumps allover.

Yes, I know. I mean in general it seems thematically quite different.
True. I dont know what this book is about. I had the impression that the album will be based on a book about dwarves written by a german writer. Am i wrong?
