Blind Guardian

Forming in the small German town of Krefeld, Blind Guardian perfected a fusion of gothic- and fantasy-tinged European power metal with the velocity and technical precision of speed metal. Members Hansi Kürsch (vocals, bass), Marcus Siepen (guitar), André Olbrich (guitar), and Thomen Stauch (drums) initially called themselves Lucifer's Heritage, but elected to change it when a 1986 demo tape began to achieve underground popularity. They signed with the No Remorse label and issued Battalions of Fear in 1988, following it with Follow the Blind a year later, which helped make a name for the band in Japan. Released in 1990, Tales from the Twilight World became an underground hit in Germany and led to a deal with that country's division of Virgin Records; their major-label debut, Somewhere Far Beyond, was released in 1992. After 1993's live Tokyo Tales, Blind Guardian hooked up with former Metallica producer Flemming Rasmussen for 1995's Imaginations from the Other Side. Issued in 1996, The Forgotten Tales was a collection of covers and alternate versions, setting the stage for 1998's Nightfall in Middle-Earth, a Tolkien-inspired concept album that finally became the band's first American release a year later. Century Media began reissuing portions of the band's back catalog in the U.S. the same year. In 2002, the band released A Night at the Opera, and followed up four years later with A Twist in the Myth. The German power metal quartet released its ninth studio album, At the Edge of Time, in 2010 followed by a compilation of re-recorded and remixed songs called Memories of a Time to Come in 2012. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

By far my favorite band.
Also featured in thevideo game Sacred, as npcs with an unlockable video. With band member specific weapons!
interesting
You gotta love foreign metal
The music is very simlar to Iced Earth, I gotta say that I prefer the vocals on Iced Earth though. I'll have to check out Blind Guardian further though.
and cool album art
so good
Amazing... Enough said
Putting some mysticism and aggression into every song, reminds me of a thrash-ier Nightwish
First heard this song on Sacred II. Little did I know that I would find one of the best bands I've heard in a long time lol
New favorite band!
demons and wizards, blind guardian rock
owlssilentfl i g h t
I've been looking for other similar bands, but few can compare to Blind Guardian. Demons and Wizards is excellent, too. ;)
Best song ever made
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
Great music,it has Jethro Tull feel too it,love the middle Earth Genre style music,lots of King Richard/King Author flare to it! Kudos!
Dark less maybe
This is my kind of metal, great vocalists with talent and great riffs
Love this band. My absolute favorite.
I found this band out while playing an rpg game called sacred 2 fallen angels I think it was a mission u had to do is get all their weapon like instruments for a one last gig and they play "this world is sacred" after the mission is finished u get their weapons to use so F'ing epic indeed
@Alejandro I agree, I listened to them while I played Oblivion and it was amazingly perfect.
being a entish often enough visitor we lichen
So f**king epic, they go perfect with any RPG, and I generally always listen to speed metal anyways. Awesome band.
Blind Guardian is awesome addition to listen while watching The Hobbit. Or make a fact you need another fantasy type subject.
blind guardian is epic!!
Blind Guardian is f**king awesome!
I know there awesome I listen to this band everyday
rainbow unicorn attack!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
mwep415
woot blind guardian awesome!
Greatest Metal Band of all time, Nightfall in middle earth is greatest album of all time, Wheel of Time is the greatest song of all time. I have seen all live : )
there is something about blind guardian that just rocks. the speed metal can be good, especially if your pissed, but add the fantasy element to the song subjects, and it blows me away. on top of that, the minstrel-ish songs feel so mysterious, and, being a tolkien enthusiest, i know what they talk about in songs like Nightfall! all around impressive and infective.
i grew up with group like this they kick a**
@tukasspirit , agreed
