“And we’re following the will of the one”

My coworker and I were singing metal to each other today and I remembered how much ass this album kicks.  I haven’t listened to this album in probably two years, so it was hard for me to pick just one song.  Thus, you get your face melted twice.

Blind Guardian is a German power-metal band.  This album is based on Tolkein’s The Silmarillion.  What else do you need to know?

  1. Man, this reminds me of hanging out with Matt Slack at Hope.

  2. There really should be a Blind Guardian Broadway musical. I mean, these songs sound like Andrew Lloyd Webber.

    Glenn, power metal is totally different than Webber musicals. I mean, power metal has tight outfits, long and elaborate hairstyles, operatic vocal solos, posturing, et al. Webber has none of that whatsoever.
