Album Review

25 years already? I vividly remember the days when my brother and I listened to this record over and over again. If I remember it correctly the first Metal bands I listened to were METALLICA and BLIND GUARDIAN (playing Zelda on my Super Nintendo while listening to BLIND GUARDIAN is one of the memories that are forever connected to each other). I was still 14 years old when this came out so this helped to socialize me into the bull-headed Heavy Metal enthusiast I am today. To be honest: this is also my all-time favourite record of Hans and his guys. Why? Because of sensational epics like ‘The Script for my Requiem’, ‘Mordred’s Song’ and BLIND GUARDIAN’s roughest song ‘I’m Alive’. Btw, the beginning staccato riff of ‘The Script for my Requiem’ has an ICED EARTH feel to it.

This fine 25th Anniversary Edition includes nine live tracks, ten Remixes, a 2018 mix of ‘System’s Failing’, nine instrumentals, four demos and an orchestral version of ‘A Past and Future Secret’. This should be enough to satisfy any fan of Krefeld’s best. After listening to different stuff and going full circle with this one , once again, realize that this is one of the best metal bands on this planet and all the fame and status surrounding BLIND GUARDIAN is well deserved. So if there is a Metal head out there that is not aware of this band: CHECK THIS OUT NOW!
