BLIND GUARDIAN picture
Blind Guardian is a German power metal band from Krefeld / Meerbusch. They are commonly counted among the most influential artists of the genre, as well as one of the earliest acts to play the so called European style of power metal. Like with genre pioneers Helloween, Blind Guardian began life as a speed metal band.

Blind Guardian were originally known as Lucifer's Heritage. The band was active between 1984 - 1986 and in that time released two demos, Symphonies of Doom (1985) and Battalions of Fear (1986). The band originally consisted of Hansi Kürsch (vocals, bass), André Olbrich (lead guitars), Marcus Dork (rhythm guitars, additional vocals) and Thomen Stauch (drums). An additional lead voclaist, Thomas Kelleners, was also involved at one point but never recorded with the band. On the second demo Dork was replaced by Christoph Theissen (R.I.P. 2013) and Stauch by Hans-Peter Frey. Following this demo Lucifer's

BLIND GUARDIAN Another Stranger Me

Single · 2007 · Power Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
martindavey87
'Another Stranger Me' is the second single from Blind Guardian's 2006 album 'A Twist in the Myth', and is the only track from that record to receive a promo video. It is also the bands most radio-friendly work, and as a result, is probably their most hated song too.

Personally, I think it's a killer! There's nothing wrong with trying to appeal to a bigger audience, and all the ingredients of a great Blind Guardian track are here. There's plenty of tasteful guitar harmonies and lead breaks, Hansi Kursch's powerful vocals, epic keyboards and some intense drumming. It's all here! But heaven forbid a power metal band trying to get a bit of radio airplay! Can't have that now, can we?

Along with the title track, there's two EP exclusives; the haunting 'All the King's Horses' and a cover of Ozzie Nelsons, or Wayne Kings (do the research and come to your own conclusion), 'Dream a Little Dream of Me'. Blind Guardian seem to have a knack for giving these oldies songs their own makeover, but with that said, this song is pretty dire and uninteresting, completely missing the magic the band showed on their versions of 'Mr. Sandman' and 'Surfin' USA'.

Also included are two demos of 'Lionheart' and 'The Edge', both are featured on 'A Twist in the Myth', and like so many countless singles and EP's that come with demo versions, they're decent for collectors, but otherwise best to stick with the finished product, and in this regard, said product is actually a fantastic and highly underrated album.

Overall, as is always the case, this is one for hardcore fans. 'Another Stranger Me' is a solid track, but that alone won't save this EP from getting anything more than two stars.

BLIND GUARDIAN Tales From the Twilight World

The year is 1990. A few years prior the German band Helloween had released a pair of albums, Keeper of the Seven Keys Parts 1 & 2, which have gone down in history as the birth of the metal genre known as power metal. Along with them several other German bands appeared on the fledgling scene such as Scanner, Running Wild and Rage. A thing in common that all these bands have including Helloween is that their roots were very much in speed metal, the genre that spawned power metal. Another band this is true of is of course Blind Guardian. They released two albums in the style called Battalions of Fear and Follow the Blind. Like the others mentioned above, they then made the transition to a power metal band with 1990's Tales From the Twilight World.

Blind Guardian are not only a key band in the genre due to how successful they have been, but because they were one of the ones who really pushed it forward into it's own style. Though there had been several other power metal albums before Tales From the Twilight World the ones that were not still overly dominated by speed metal or heavy metal elements were rare. I would personally count the famous Keeper of the Seven Keys albums as such I have overall always found their production sound to still be very traditional and very much eighties sounding. Running Wild always had a heavy metal side to them while Rage kept both speed and heavy elements on their late eighties work. 1990 was the point where things really started to change for power metal. Former Helloween guitarist Kai Hansen released the first Gamma Ray album Heading for Tomorrow earlier in 1990 of course, during a time when Helloween themselves were gearing up towards the release of the not so fondly remembered Pink Bubbles Go Ape and often loathed Chameleon album, and had also taken the young Blind Guardian under his wing, which resulted in several guest appearances in their early work such as on Tales From the Twilight World during the track Lost in the Twilight Hall. How much of their switch from speed to power metal was his influence is debatable, but what I do know is that with Tales From the Twilight World Blind Guardian were one of the early bands to unify power metal into a distinct style without still have one foot in the camp of another genre.

There are still some speed metal elements on this album of course, but the switch in direction is very evident. The album is hard hitting, admittedly not too polished especially when compared to their following work, but it's that raw energy that makes it a special entry in their discography. Years down the line the power metal genre has become one that certain breeds of metalhead like to snigger at and make jokes about (favourites being that the music is cheesy and that the singers sound like fairies) which makes me wonder what the hell went wrong along the way with the style as it caught on and become standardised, because Tales From the Twilight World is simply fucking metal to the absolute textbook definition. It's heavy, fast, memorable and most of all the vocals are powerful. Hansi Kürsch has not quite hit his peak here even, and he still sounds better than most power metal singers that both came before or since, including Kai Hansen who while I respect immensely as a musician and as the Godfather of power metal, isn't really all that much of a great singer, as evidenced by as his contribution to Lost in the Twilight Hall. I digress, in fact all of the album is powerful work, ballad Lord of the Rings aside. It may seem like a pun to say it, but this album really injected the power into the power metal genre. It's sad how many newer bands don't really have that and how the bands who are harder usually rely on heavy, speed or thrash metal elements to get them there. While there is indeed speed metal on this album it's more of a leftover by-product due to the band's evolution and would be gone completely on their next album.

Blind Guardian's speed metal records were good, but Tales From the Twilight World brought the band onto a whole other level. It's not quite as good as the two albums that they would go on to make next, Somewhere Far Beyond and Imaginations From the Other Side, but it's one hell of a stepping stone towards them. With Lord of the Rings we get the template for the Blind Guardian folk ballad, though sadly they messed up the lyrics, presumably in translation, by singing 'gnomes' instead of 'dwarves', which I'm sure is going to bother any Tolkien die-hards who listen to the song. They fixed this is a later re-recording though. Tracks like Traveler in Time, Welcome to Dying, Goodbye my Friend and Tommyknockers, especially Tommyknockers, are all early power metal classics.

Overall, Tales From the Twilight World really is an essential release. Not only is it an excellent album, but it's also fairly historic in the development of its genre. Awhile I can't quite give it five stars, mostly because there were still a couple of bugs to be worked out of the Blind Guardian sound at this point, it's no less of a classic album. Also if you're one of the people I referred to earlier who think power metal is cheesy and sung by fairies, then listen to this album. This here is power metal with balls!

BLIND GUARDIAN A Twist in the Myth

After the ridiculously ambitious albums 'Nightfall in Middle Earth' and 'A Night at the Opera', I think it's fair to say that Blind Guardian deserved a bit of a break, and so here we have 'A Twist in the Myth', a release that saw the band break away from the ten-minute songs brimming with multiple vocal harmonies and orchestrations, to instead, focus on more easily accessible compositions, that still maintain the bands signature sound.

Blind Guardian's trademark take on power and progressive metal is in full effect here, not being diminished by the more stripped-down and laid back approach. There's still plenty of guitar harmonies and epic vocal performances, and the evident folk influences gives this record a more upbeat and energetic feel than previous releases. It's a good starting point for those who are deterred by serious, Tolkien-inspired concept albums.

There's a couple of filler songs that prevent this from getting five stars, but otherwise it's an all-round solid effort. Songs like 'Another Stranger Me', 'Fly', 'Turn the Page', 'This Will Never End' and 'Straight Through the Mirror' are all great tracks that can easily go next to any of the bands bigger pieces without seeming out of place. However, ambitious, over-the-top epics is where Blind Guardian really flourish, and as it is, while 'A Twist in the Myth' is a great album, it'll never be their best.

Three albums into their career and Blind Guardian have still yet to find that certain something that would make them unique amongst all the other power metal bands. Although there are certain hints of it creeping in, it isn't enough to make 'Tales from the Twilight World' truly stand out.

The use of acoustic guitars, more intricate vocal melodies and Tolkien-inspired lyrical themes are all signs of where the band are going musically, but sadly it fails to distinguish anything of this album from its predecessors. Songs such as 'Lord of the Rings', 'Welcome to Dying' and 'Tommyknockers' are some of the more memorable moments, but they're lost amidst an album of mediocre speed metal tracks ('Lord of the Rings' is damn catchy, though).

Much like their previous albums, 'Tales from the Twilight World' may be held in higher regard by enthusiasts of the genre, and whilst I absolutely love Blind Guardian's later material, to me, this is just another generic power metal affair.

Blind Guardian have been at the top of the power metal game for quite some time now, having been formed as long ago as 1984, and they show no sign of slowing down just yet. A decision was taken to record all the shows from their 2015 European tour when they were promoting ‘Beyond The Red River’, and then from those gigs they selected the best versions of each song and have now released it as a triple CD set which is more than two and a half hours long! This is their third official live album, but is going to be viewed by many as their most complete due not only to its length, but that the setlist is one which includes virtually all the songs that any fan could want. Is “The Bard’s Song” on there? Of course, and “Mirror Mirror”, “And Then There Was Silence”, “Nightfall, “Wheel Of Time” – all up there are twenty-two songs on the set, all played as only Blind Guardian can play them, and performed in front of avid audiences who wanted to sing just as much as Hansi Kürsch.

These days the band may only be Hansi (vocals), André Olbrich (guitars), Marcus Siepen (guitars) and Frederik Ehmke (drums), with the line-up being completed by session musicians Barend Courbois (bass) and Mi Schüren (keyboards), but these guys are refusing to sit back and relax, and instead keep waving the power metal flag for everyone to see. When it comes to this style of music there is no-one who does it any better, and this album captures them in their native element, onstage in front of their fans. This album is simply indispensable if you like this style of music. www.nuclearblast.de

I agree that the albums are more speed metal than power metal. However they are still more power metal than thrash metal (which they aren't at all). If speed metal cannot be selected (why?) then they should say power metal like everything else. Calling them thrash metal is just plain wrong. Speed metal is closer to power metal than thrash metal in any case.

The early releases of Blind Guardian (and Helloween for that matter) are considered to be more speed metal than power metal. Here on MMA speed metal is an inclusive genre with our thrash metal sub, which is why early Blind Guardian releases are tagged as thrash metal.

Maybe not in the traditional sense, but many early power metal bands (Helloween, Helstar, Gamma Ray, etc.) had thrash metal elements on their early releases.

Thrash metal? There is not one note of thrash metal on any Blind Guardian release.

There are definitely some top quality albums in the MMA power metal chart right now, a few surprising ones too, but Imaginations From the Other Side is better than all of them. :P

I hate that none of their albums currently appear in the top albums on the power metal page. :(
