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

SO glad they have the instrumentals on Spotify as well as the normal songs. Now that I’m getting more familiar with the songs’ identities and structures I can’t help want even more. I love the Blind Guardian signature in orchestral compositions, and of course Hansi’s vocals, and I suddenly feel that...

Psychopaths among us 😬 Lets see you work the non-life existence of an Amazon worker and keep believing what you believe. Your coldness is not, as you think, pragmatist and realist, or due to a love of efficiency. You’re privileged and like the idea of people slaving to make your life possible.

Thanks for that Blabbermouth interview, I really enjoyed it. Seemed a nice chemistry of quality questions and answers. On a slightly different note I just started listening again to BtRM right now for the first time in a while (I’ve been on a looon Demons and Wizards, Maskandi, and folk metal trip) ...

Re: BTRM song poll (make 3 choices)

I like Ashes of Eternity. But I can see why people do not like it. It is a bit more straightforward faster song, does not have many "epic" elements and the chorus strays from the usual BG formula; most lines are a non-overdubbed Hansi singing and no high notes or something like that. The chorus sou...
