I have to ask, pray tell which song from ATitM was better than Fly? :shock:

Re: Blind Guardian LP10

I'm liking it!
I can see the references to the last D&W album, and also the ATITM parts, but to me these are not bad things. The chorus is probably one of the more cheesy they've written, and definately as easy to sing along to as Valhalla and Mirror Mirror...

Re: Blind Guardian LP10

With the exception of ATTWS, I think all of their singles were good songs, but definately not the best that the album connected to it had to offer... ATTWS is still extremely high on my fav list, and the best off of ANATO in my opinion. A Voice In The Dark, while a strong song, is in my opinion the ...

This sample is great! Everything I've heard here just screams Blind Guardian to me! And I don't mind the more modern sound they were talking about either! One of the reasons I love BG is because they create music that is always ahead of their time.

I'm curious about the ballad "Miracle Machine". I really hope it will not be a medieval style ballad as I don't like them that much. Hansi's best ballad performance ever ( and ever ever) will stay "Those we've left behind". This sounds simply perfect to me. It would be the best BG ballad by far!! (...
