Re: Blind Guardian LP10

"The Red Door" would certainly be their most subtle title choice yet. It is nuanced in its simplicity. Three one-syllable words evoking a lot of mystery.

Re: Which BG song has affected/affects you the most?

When I first discovered Under the Ice, I was 14 and going through the throes of my angsty phase. I had never heard anything like power metal before - I was a fan of melodic and harmonious singing but this exceeded anything I ever expected to hear in music. I would get home from school, turn out the ...
