What's your favorite Blind Guardian album? Mine are Nightfall in Middle Earth and Imaginations from the Other Side. This is my favorite power metal band, one of the first bands I started my music listening from...

Somewhere Far Beyond, Imaginations From The Other Side. That's my two favorites. The last one is somehow... I don't know. Different. Not the Blind Guardian I like. The new (actually the only one) album from the Savage Circus (new band of the ex-BG drummer Thomen Stauch) shows for me the direction BG should go. I can really recommend it, sounds awesome! Power (Epic?) + Progressive Metal on the very high level. Just hear the first song (Evil Eyes) and you will know that do I mean. :-)

Here is a Savage Circus video I found on youtube: http://youtube.com/watch?v=UwwvS4bx-mk Let me know what do you think about it. :-) This song is not the best from the whole album (in my opinion), but gives you some good impression what Savage Circus is all about. The reason why Thomen (who wrote the most of the BG music) left BG was as far as I know that he wasn't happy with the new development of the band style and wanted to continue to develop the "old" BG style, but Hansi (vocal) desperately wanted to try something new. So with Savage Circus and Blind Guardian you can see two visions of the two "main" BG creative powers. Maybe it's a good thing that BG splitted. Now with Savage Circus we have a chance to hear how "Somewhere Far Beyond" would sounds like if it were wrote 2006. ;-)

My favorite Blind Guardian is Nightfall in Middle-Earth. It was my first metal album and it have absolutely great songs that feature a very power drumming, beautiful melodic and solo guitars, well-timed basslines, atmospheric keyboards and very strong vocal lines. Also, the lyrics of the songs of the album are great!

Yeah, "Nightfall in Middle-Earth" is an incredible album, especially to those who have read Lord of the Rings and Silmarillion by Tolkien.
