Re: "The Tides of War", an unreleased NIME song, coming September 26th

Really enjoyed it, very much an slice of classic era Blind Guardian that I didn't expect. Can anyone here clarify when and why this track was written and excluded from the album? I translated the original Hansi statement from the German text but its rough and patchy to understand in English. Does he...

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

Interesting list, I should qualify that I left off the newest album (Red Mirror) simply because its so new, in a way all of its songs are underrated by default right now. That being said, in a few years time I think "Distant Memories" and your choice "At the Edge of Time" will be two candidates for ...

Re: Wrote a thing about being a Blind Guardian fan

They played in the anteroom of Warehouse Live, so as you expect, it was a relatively small turnout of maybe 100-150 people, but everyone was very enthusiastic. Great performance from the band as well. Totally made up for the flu-ridden 2006 show!
