Re: Blind Guardian LP10

A really long song in the beginning is something that I don't like. Sacred bored me to death in the last record, never like that song and never will. BTW, it's amazing how this band is incapable of composing something as effective as Mordred's Song. IFTOS as a whole had some of their most inspired s...

I didn't like the sound of the drums in the sample but Frederik is still a very fucking good drummer and he's doing a good job. I still love the things he adds to the old songs to make them richer and his work in ATEOT is very good. The drumming could be a bit more technical now with him in the band...
