Re: Blind Guardian's Twilight Orchestra - "Legacy of the Dark Lands" (The Orchestral Project)

sorry, but youtube has no good sound quality I use Spotify Premium, same problem there, and it has nothing to do with my headphones. I'm not the only one experiencing these issues.

Re: Legacy of the Dark Lands - Music Analysis

"In the Underworld" The Underworld theme is fucking killer. I kinda get a 1989 Batman feel from it for some reason, lol. Also, starting at 4:18, I fucking love this section. So dark and powerful. That's actually the 1618 Ouverture main theme. I assumed it repeats in other places as well, but I didn...

What the fuck guys. I waited 2/3 of my life for this orchestral project. When I listened to "Point of no Return" I was not touched at all. It is quite a nice song, but sounded so "polished", without any edge. Like someone had over 20 years time to make it perfect ;) I was a bit disappointed. When "...
