Battalions of Fear only had a few songs that held my attention. There were more good songs on Follow the Blind, as well as a few classics like Valhalla.Mormegil wrote:I'd say Follow the Blind is worse, though I still like it a lot. Other than that, completely agreed. I suggest you get Somewhere Far Beyond next.Rebel wrote:Battalions of Fear is the worst BG album, but it's OK because it's the first, and not necessarily 'bad', they've just always got better. Every album shows steady improvement until Nightfall in Middle Earth, after which there's a minor drop-off to the still amazing Night at the Opera, and then divided opinions on A Twist in the Myth, before the really, really amazing At the Edge of Time.SatanicSmile wrote:Blind Guardian - Battalions of Fear
Don't really know why, but I never was that familiar with this band. Then I saw this CD for sale at local second hand store, and thought, now or never. I really like this. Especially two first tracks, Majesty and Guardian of the Blind.
Blind Guardian - Follow the Blind
Blind Guardian - Tales from the Twilight World
Blind Guardian - Imaginations from the Other Side
Blind Guardian - Nightfall in Middle-Earth
Nocturnal Rites - Tales of Mystery and Imagination (Japan)
Nocturnal Rites - Afterlife (Japan)
One of my favourite bands. What the heck happened to them? Did they quit or what? Any Nocturnal Rites fans here?
Actually, instead of going through this all, my reviews of the first 4 blind guardian albums can be found here.
Maybe I'll work on a few more today...
Blind Guardian is probably across the board the most popular power metal band ever though.
