BLIND GUARDIAN Tokyo Tales

Live album · 1993 · Power Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Released in 1993, ‘Tokyo Tales’ is the first official live album by German power metal legends Blind Guardian. Having been a long-time fan of the band, I’ve always swayed more towards their later, more progressive and “epic” albums, whilst finding their earlier, speed metal days a little too repetitive for my liking.

Recorded whilst touring for 1992’s ‘Somewhere Far Beyond’, it was at this point that the band would begin to incorporate a wider range of influences in their music and focus on concept albums, more ambitious arrangements and lavish orchestrations. However, while ‘Tokyo Tales’ covers pretty much all the best songs those early albums have to offer, it’s still a bit too samey for my tastes.

With songs like ‘Banish from Sanctuary’, ‘Majesty’, ‘Welcome to Dying’ and ‘Lost in the Twilight Hall’, the set list is pretty good. The sound is great, and is pretty similar to the studio albums, and the audience is truly alive and loving every minute of it. But ultimately this comes down to taste. I’d rather listen to the studio counterparts of these tracks, and even then, I think I’d prefer to listen to ‘Nightfall in Middle Earth’ or ‘A Twist in the Myth’ than anything from those early albums.

METALLICA Frantic

Single · 2003 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
I think there’s no denying that 2003’s ‘St. Anger’ is hardly a career highlight for Metallica. While certainly a pivotal moment in the bands history, the album itself is probably more a result of a well-documented time of turmoil for the band, than an actual critical success.

Which brings us to any promotional singles that were released, and there were a few. ‘Frantic’ is arguably one of the better songs from the album, which isn’t really saying too much. Especially as this is standard Metallica fare. The title track, accompanied by two generic live recordings, in the case of CD1 of this two-disc set, ‘Blackened’ and ‘Harvester of Sorrow’. Both original studio recordings are Metallica masterpieces... these live recordings... umm... rather forgettable, really.

Nothing overly special or remarkable, the band sounds quite rusty here, no doubt due to having not toured in a number of years at this point. None-the-less, this doesn’t make for any notable live recordings, which ultimately makes for a rather mundane single release, which finds itself only worth owning for die-hard fans.

SAVATAGE Ghost In The Ruins: A Tribute To Criss Oliva

Live album · 1995 · Heavy Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
‘Ghost in the Ruins’ is the second official live album by American metal band Savatage. Released in 1995, it serves as a tribute to the late Criss Oliva who died in a car accident in 1993, however, it’s release comes just months after the band had released ‘Japan Live ‘94’, and two live albums, both with similar set lists in such a short span tends to lessen the impact.

To be brutally honest though, while I absolutely love Savatage, and they are one of my all-time favourite bands, I’ve always felt that their material doesn’t translate well into live albums. Sure, there’s no doubt the energy of hearing these songs live is off the hook, but hearing it “live”, in album form at least, seems to lack what makes the studio versions so powerful to begin with.

I mean, the band play exceptionally, and there’s a palpable chemistry between them all, and the set list is spot on, especially considering when this was recorded, but as I’ve touched upon, I just really can’t get into this. With the likes of ‘Gutter Ballet’, ‘When the Crowds Are Gone’, ‘Sirens’, ‘Hall of the Mountain King’ and ‘Of Rage and War’, this album isn’t a complete loss, but at the end of the day, I’d much rather listen to any of the studio albums and hear the music in all its fist-pumping studio glory.

METALLICA All Nightmare Long

Single · 2008 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
One of the best tracks from 2008’s ‘Death Magnetic’, an album brimming with great songs, ‘All Nightmare Long’ rightfully received a single release and a promotional video, and as is always the case with Metallica, there’s multiple versions and discs.

This one, disc one of a three-disc set, features the titular track, as well as live versions of ‘Wherever I May Roam’ and ‘Master of Puppets’. Two exceptional tracks in themselves, overall, this single release doesn’t really offer anything new, however.

It’s not that there’s anything wrong with the two live tracks, just that we’ve heard countless different live versions of them by now, that as great as the compositions are, there’s nothing remotely notable about these two recordings in particular. Still, they’re great songs, so whatever. And the title track is amazing, full of twists and turns, with some breakneck speed guitar riffs and Hetfield’s voice sounding the best it has sounded in years. If nothing else, ‘All Nightmare Long’ is a great little nugget for fans and collectors.

NICKELBACK Here and Now

Album · 2011 · Heavy Alternative Rock
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
2011’s ‘Here and Now’ is the seventh studio album by Canadian rockers Nickelback, and yep, you guessed it, it’s similar to their previous few releases. But is that such a bad thing? The band have sold millions of albums and toured the world over, so they must be doing something right. They have a winning formula and they’ve stuck with it. Radio-friendly enough for the casual listener yet rocking enough for metal fans. Those willing to give the band a chance, that is. As is usually the case by now, the band can be hard and heavy enough for rock fans, yet some softer ballads allow the band to garner radio airplay. The production is top-notch, giving the band a full sound which really makes the rockier songs heavy as hell and gives the soft pop songs a warm, vibrant feel.

The lyrics, as always, range from the usual rock debauchery to more introspective and reflective themes. Sex, women and parties are usually at the top of the bill, but there are themes of unity, suicide and dependence too. For the most part, they’re usually a fine old slab of cheese, but anyone willing to dig a little deeper can see that occasionally the band can have something meaningful or poignant to say.

While Nickelback will never be known specifically for virtuoso musicianship, there’s no denying their penchant for writing catchy and memorable songs, and with beastly guitar riffs and pounding drums aplenty, there’s an abundance of quality material here. The likes of ‘This Means War’, ‘Bottoms Up’, ‘Lullaby’, ‘Kiss It Goodbye’, ‘When We Stand Together’ and ‘Trying Not to Love You’ are all exceptional rock songs that are certainly worth a listen or two. And while ‘Here and Now’ may not be anything groundbreaking or innovative, the truth is, it doesn’t need to be. This is good, quality hard rock at its finest.
