The bards have come out of the forest. Yes, the Blind Guardians are back baby! And did they ever do it in style. Surely one of the year's most anticipated albums, At The Edge Of Time is sure to rank high on personal lists for a while.

Hit in the face with the 9+ minute long opening masterpiece "Sacred World", I had to replay it for half an hour before being able to continue on with the rest of the album. Majestic orchestral intro, grand entrance killer riffs, and vocals to die for. The first thought that went through my head at that exact time "This is already better than the entire previous album". Hell, this is Blind Guardian with a renewed energy and a hint of progressive influences I only dreamt about in the past.

  These bands stood the test of time and have influenced different genres. I think Black Metal is for posers and their satanic themes are very childish. U got to stop mocking Power Metal, Heavy Metal and Progressive Metal! These genres give quality, and im talking abt the good bands. U can find cheesy bands everywhere and mainly in Black Metal...

The fact they stood the test of time only means they are commercial enough to please lots of people.

Believe as much as you want that Black Metal is a poser genre, fact is those bands you mentioned made way more commercial moves in their careers than any BM band. As for being childish or not, standard heavy metal is often very childish. Seeing lots of those old men who are in their 50s and 60s now acting still like teenagers is the epitome of childishness, in my mind.

I never mocked prog, even if it's a genre that bores me to death.

I mocked Powermetal because it has become a shitty soft and commercial genre with time.
And I mocked standard heavy metal because I find this genre utterly outdated nowadays. I believe it belongs to the 80s and should have been left there.

Forget about having an opinion here at MS that goes against anything the "extreme" tards deem unworthy because they'll continue to come out of the woodwork like cockroaches. It's not even worth wasting your time disagreeing any more. Just nod in silent placation knowing that you are actually right.

At this point the troll's stuff is almost comical so it really isn't worth getting worked up about. It's like waging a war against 3 year olds to eat their veggies. I just let them get to me too much and needed a higher power (admin) to tell me it ain't worth it. It's all good. I'm really REALLY enjoying the new Blind Guardian. Thankfully they are staying true to their roots and continue to bring the metal!

Learn to use the "Ignore" function. It may impede discussion (if trolling counts as discussion), but it's good for your nerves.

As for the album, it's much better than ATITM, and has little if any filler tracks. For me it's just too bad that I heard Sacred (Worlds) like a year or two before the album got out, and it the best song of the album (IMHO, but Tanerlon, Valkyries or A Voice In The Dark are alo candidates).

Just because people disagree with you doesn't mean they are wrong. You just sound like one of those people stuck in the 80s who still believe old outdated standard metal is better than anything else.
Your delusional attitude won't change the fact that pretty much all those old bands won't be active anymore in a few years and we'll get rid of all those people stuck in the 80s on metal boards.
And it will be a good riddance. There's nothing worse than fanboys and people living in the past, failing to see that the 80s are long gone.

You and Mountain King both belong to the 'stuck in the past' category. I checked your lists of bands. Sad to see how some people have missed the last two decades.

Yeah to be honest you strike me as a pretty solid candidate for that category yourself. I made the mistake of looking through your comments the other day and considered getting a prescription for lexapro or something. I don't think I've ever seen so much whining about how bad bands are/have become. Actually I don't think I saw a single positive post in the whole lot.

Just sayin' is all.

I think I see what you mean. Unlike them, it's not a matter of sticking to a genre that has done its time.
It's just that I believe nearly every band starts to suck at some point. They soften, slow down, change for the worst, etc... So I end up liking only their earlier stuff.
Also, there's something related to production. I hate the way most metal sounds nowadays.

Where do I even begin with douchebag trolls like you...

First off, I remember when I was 17 and hated my elders. I thought everyone older than me was an asshole who didn't know shit. The years went by and I eventually dropped the whole I-Hate-The-Planet-And-Everyone-On-It teen-angst shtick because quite frankly it's just another fad which you'll eventually grow out of. It depends on how long you plan on living in your parent's basement really. That's not something anyone else can help you with. You have to summon the courage to quit playing WoW and trolling forums, and eventually go out and get some sunshine in the real world.

As far as liking bands from the 70's, 80's and 90's, forgive me for worshiping at the altar where the forefathers of all that bullshit you listen to nowadays came from. It's poorly educated, clueless, slave drone retards like yourself who think everything should be new and modern. Guess what shithead? Without the past there is no future. I'm proud to have come from a time when metal was born, and had the chance to see where it all began as opposed to being some pre-pubescent prick who rides a metal forum looking for older people to mouth off to. I feel sorry for your parents because they had you and look at what kind of a shining example of humanity you've become. When did trolling the internet become a full-time job anyway?

So go ahead and respond with your blah blah blah OLD PEOPLE SUCK spiel until you are blue in the face (fingers). Your profile or lack thereof speaks volumes about the kind of "individual" you are. A troll. Troll on man. You should check the MS members list more thoroughly because there are people way older than I am who you can mouth off to.

A lot of the people who do that aren't necessarily trolling, they just see others metal tastes as "inferior", and use that as an excuse to bash people for having those tastes. That is an attitude that up until quite recently, Id never witnessed on this site, but Metal Archives is well known as being a haven for people with such attitudes. Of course those things aren't exclusively reserved to MA, but its something the site is well known for. I think on any metal board, you will encounter that stuff to an extent, but some are worse than others, and MA is known for being prevelant with it.

In general, only the negative reviews with a rating under 70% worth a reading on metal Archives. Negative reviews will always have more credibility, from my point of view, because those who write them are more realistic and dare to say things as they are. Moderately positive reviews are fine too. But I'm very suspicious when a review is too much praise because, while it can be well-deserved, most of the time (nearly always), praising reviews are no more than a vehicule to display fanboy-ism.

Many of the highly negative reviews Ive seen on MA fall squarely into the category of blind hate, imo. Blind opinions/reviews of albums are not only reserved for those who give an album a high rating. Some of the most puerile, immature reviews Ive seen on MA have been ones that are very negative.

Some negative reviews are blind hate, yes. You need to see the difference.
Even then, better blind hate than blind love. At least it's not buttkissing.

Its always easy, at least for me anyways, to tell the difference between a negative review based on blind hate, and one based on honest criticsm. Same with fanboys, and positive reviews which are not written through fanboyism. The type of language used is usually a dead giveaway in both instances.

Hmm.. It is still buttkissing Imo, just not the band's.

That is utter stupidity. We should only read negative reviews? Why in the fuck do people waste their time writing negative reviews anyway? I hate Judas Priest's Point of Entry but I'm sure the fuck not going to waste a day writing a bad review of it. There's absolutely no logic to that comment or idea whatsoever. Why don't we all smoke crack? It gets negative reviews...

I wonder why I was so confused about your age. It must be the way you troll this forum and me in particular. Something about your wording and level of idiocy screams 18 year old. As for hiding your profile, that sums you up in a nutshell. People who have something to hide are generally HEINOUS, ASHAMED, EMBARRASSED (add whatever negative traits you want here). Basically trolls hide their profiles so they don't have to worry about someone finding out who they really are and calling them out. I have nothing to hide nor anything to be ashamed of, at least not in this lifetime. Any other poorly worded halfwit commentary can be directed to me in pms as you are polluting the shit out of this thread with this gibberish.

The best would be if everyone here would just accept other peoples' music tastes without mocking notices about their personalities and so...

but damn, i forgot i am on Metal Storm...


Lately, there's been times Ive had to blink, and take a few just to make sure I am on Metal Storm, and not on Encyclopedia Metallum.


I know. A few members are really taking a shit on this site. It's really annoying and has actually deterred me from checking this site as much as I used to lately. Some of these cats are nothing short of pathetic.

Rating: 5 I've never really liked Power Metal, but decided to give this a shot. Wasn't very impressed. I don't understand the fascination with power metal that a lot of people on this site seem to share. The musicianship is there, but I can hardly distinguish the songs from one another...I just get bored. Obviously, I'm very biased here and not trying to hate on anyone or their opinions... but I honestly just can't seem to get into power metal even though this is supposedly one of best power metal releases of late. Maybe just not the genre for me?

Probably, but I certainly wouldn't call this one of the best PM albums I've heard in the last few years. Naturally, I think the album would be overrated regardless of how good it is, because it is a release from a very popular band.

Is a sentence a bit wrong or unfortunate, i know perfectly when a musical genre i do not like, but i understand that other people might like it.

I also would give a 4 or 5 to the new album of Enslaved for example, but in my opinion i think it would be unfair, because i really do not like this style of music, and i would be voting on a disc just because i do not like the genre. Of course you are free to vote, it's just my opinion, but viewing your kind of post, i had to tell you this.

I understand that a lot of other people like it, I'm just curious as to why so many like it to such a huge extent that this is currently the 2nd highest rated album of the year.

I don't dislike the entire genre of power metal, there are actually a few power metal albums/bands that I really like. I just find as a whole, the genre tends to be monotonous and unoriginal. I understand where you're coming from on not rating an album based on the genre itself and I can see how my post could elude to the fact that this is what I did. But I actually attempted to rate it as subjectively as I could. A 5 isn't very bad when you think about it, it's right in the middle of all ratings. A lot of people seem almost afraid to rate any album below a 5 or 6 even if they are infact awful.

  I don't know if it's the voice of the singer or just the characteristic sound of Blind Guardian (I find not very melodic and somehow disharmonic), but I just can't convince myself to like this album. At The Edge Of Time is definitely not bad, it's just that their earlier albums have something that makes them more accessible for me.

These bands stood the test of time and have influenced different genres. I think Black Metal is for posers and their satanic themes are very childish. U got to stop mocking Power Metal, Heavy Metal and Progressive Metal! These genres give quality, and im talking abt the good bands. U can find cheesy bands everywhere and mainly in Black Metal...


Forget about having an opinion here at MS that goes against anything the "extreme" tards deem unworthy because they'll continue to come out of the woodwork like cockroaches. It's not even worth wasting your time disagreeing any more. Just nod in silent placation knowing that you are actually right.

Dude... I have to ask... Are you a professional troll or something? That's the only reason I can think of to explain this kind of stupidity.
Since I see you're an internet tough-guy, I should probably get ready for a merciless virtual beating.

Hehe, i remember this when it happened to me with Blind Guardian, i guess it is normal, i think it is a band hard to listen, you hate it or you love it, is not easily accessible in many cases (also it is a matter of taste of course, it is a unique kind of music). I listened a lot of Blind Guardian in the past, and never i liked them. But one day, when i listened the single "Battlefield" from the album of "A Night At The Opera", suddenly they hypnotized me with their music... now i'm a fan of them, i love their records.

Just because people disagree with you doesn't mean they are wrong. You just sound like one of those people stuck in the 80s who still believe old outdated standard metal is better than anything else.
Your delusional attitude won't change the fact that pretty much all those old bands won't be active anymore in a few years and we'll get rid of all those people stuck in the 80s on metal boards.
And it will be a good riddance. There's nothing worse than fanboys and people living in the past, failing to see that the 80s are long gone.

You and Mountain King both belong to the 'stuck in the past' category. I checked your lists of bands. Sad to see how some people have missed the last two decades.


i just saw this. I totally forgot about this whole discussion. But if u checked my favorite bands then u would know i'm "not stuck in the 80's"! Most of the music i listen to recently is Power, heavy and some progressive metal from 2000 and above. Masterplan, Pagan's Mind, Firewind, Heavenly, Halford, Stratovarius, Adagio, Symphony X, Primal Fear, Freedom Call, Lost Horizon, Silent Force, Vanden Plas, 7 Sinners by Helloween and so forth. even some melodeath like dark tranquility and scar symmetry! Of course i still listen to the 70's n 80's n 90's metal songs alot. Don't argue about the 80's. The top 100 metal albums on metal storm are mainly from the 80's and some are from the 70's . Don't make a fool out of yourself by mocking the 80's, if u like growling and non melodic shit then go post somewhere else. As far as i remember u said that u start hating bands after a while because they become soft or whatever like Helloween right? then that means u like their 80's stuff which means ur a fan of the 80's. Anyway no one teaches me about my music. I'm out...
