Alright, since the old thread was locked because we posted to the limit, here's the new one!

To get us re-started, I think I'll wish Frederik a Happy 29th Birthday.

Also, have any of you bought the 'Another Stranger Me' single, and if so, do you recommend getting it? I usually don't get EPs and singles, but if they're good then I can make exceptions. I've already seen the video (which was weird, at least for Blind Guardian), but some of the songs are new. Also, any comments on their appearance at Hellfest would be much appreciated, from those fortunate enough to see them there.

(i would only add: Curse My Name, Turn The Page, Another Holly War and Somewhere Far Beyond to have all my dreams fulfiled )


Yeah, the dreams are completed when you take away Fly, and you put Another Holly War, or Battlefield, or The Soulforged. The dreams are completed when you take away The Ninth Wave and you put The Holy Grail =)
By the way, nice that they played And Then There Was Silence

I was checking setlist.fm and saw they played it couple of times during North America part of the tour in November...but then I see gigs where they skipped it, so I was worried until Hansi announced that their (first) "last" song will be pretty long

and I think "The Ninth Wave" is kinda good opener thanks to its acoustic orchestral passage in the beginning - so the band can enter the stage with style

but maybe they should start with "Majesty" as well - just the crowd may demolish the venue before they start

What do you think of the new song, Violent Shadow?
I believe they have regained power and aggression, but lost a lot of the magic of the past

The more I listen to Violent Shadows the more it sounds like a song that comes off of Tales From The Twilight World, but darker, more serious. I don’t think I’ve ever felt like BG has “lost the magic of the past”, because in their constant change, they’re able to make new magic of the present, which may only to some feel like magic again in the future. In short, I love Violent Shadows, and thanks to this reminder will be listening to it a lot today.

I love their early albums. Battalions of Fear is tied with Somewhere Far Beyond for my favorite thing they've ever done. That said, the whole run from Battalions through Twist was really really organic and interesting. Something changed a bit with Edge and Mirror, but it's tough to pin down. They're good albums though. Edge in particular took a long time to click, but I've been enjoying it a lot more lately.
