The first album from Blind Guardian and u can hear that, but still it rocks.

great album! heavier and more power metal oriented than later cds.

What, that's it? Nevermind. For being the fist album released in the USA it kicks some major ass! More thrash and speed then their later stuff. But it lacks the sheer power of Night At The Opera. If, however, your lucky enough to come accross it at a reasonable price fork over the cash and get it. Try www.half.com for the best price.

Speed/Power metal del bueno aún cuando el tiempo sea demasiado corto. Excelente inicio en "Majesty" con esos coros alucinantes y esos solos Speedícos muy buenos así como en "Battalions of Fear" mis favoritas, tambien están a ese mismo nivel "Run For the Night" y la Speed melódica "Wizard's Crown". La 8 y 9 son instrumentales que no me agrada en demasía a sabiendas del corto tiempo del album. Buen comienzo. 8/10

Debut album with some good shots in "Guardian Of the Blind","Trial By The Archon","Wizard's Crown" & "Run For The Night"...at least those four ones are into what Blind Guardian became about afterward,a great Power/Thrash Metal band of that moment...nowadays they have done some different approaches in metal...70/100
