    I think I'll dig out "Nightfall..." and play it tomorrow, after I get through the new compilation album.:tup:

    Yeah how about it right?? They started out as thrash and turned into, slowly in time, into an epic symphonic band. Crazy...but they still pull off the speed in areas where they need to. :grinthumb

    Looking forward to it man :cheers2

    I just remembered that I should have Nightfall in Middle Earth ( is that the right title ?)around here somewhere. If I fail to find that one I will be upset.

    Anyway, back to the thrash thing..I started of with the three folk /symphonic/ power metal CDs and so I was not expecting their thrash era when I bought them. To tell the truth I didn't like them for a long time, mostly due to expectations of a different style. After a while I realized that it was pretty decent thrash.

    ^^Yes you've got the title right, "Nightfall in Middle Earth", based on the sprawling collection of short stories in the Silmarillion. It remains my fave BG record, no surprise considering JRR is my favorite fantasy author.(Have had the LOTR since I was 10 years old.)

    ^^ That was a very good live rendition.

    I am into Nightfall in Middle Earth again tonight. I liked the opener Into The Storm, Nightfall is another song I consider very memorable.

    Forum has a Blind Guardian thread :woot: I made a good choice signing up here.

    Got into BG earlier this year, picked up "Nightfall...", "Imaginations..." & "At The Edge Of Time" and love them all - even though "At..." is OTT and a tad introverted.

    Friend of mine recommends thier Live album which I keep meaning to pick up as well.
