Blind Guardian

Forming in the small German town of Krefeld, Blind Guardian perfected a fusion of gothic- and fantasy-tinged European power metal with thevelocity and technical precision of speed metal. Members Hansi Kürsch (vocals, bass), Marcus Siepen (guitar), André Olbrich (guitar), andThomen Stauch (drums) initially called themselves Lucifer's Heritage, but elected to change it when a 1986 demo tape began to achieveunderground popularity.

Forming in the small German town of Krefeld, Blind Guardian perfected a fusion of gothic- and fantasy-tinged European power metal with thevelocity and technical precision of speed metal. Members Hansi Kürsch (vocals, bass), Marcus Siepen (guitar), André Olbrich (guitar), andThomen Stauch (drums) initially called themselves Lucifer's Heritage, but elected to change it when a 1986 demo tape began to achieveunderground popularity. They signed with the No Remorse label and issued Battalions of Fear in 1988, following it with Follow the Blind a yearlater, which helped make a name for the band in Japan. Released in 1990, Tales from the Twilight World became an underground hit in Germanyand led to a deal with that country's division of Virgin Records; their major-label debut, Somewhere Far Beyond, was released in 1992. After1993's live Tokyo Tales, Blind Guardian hooked up with former Metallica producer Flemming Rasmussen for 1995's Imaginations from the OtherSide. Issued in 1996, The Forgotten Tales was a collection of covers and alternate versions, setting the stage for 1998's Nightfall in Middle-Earth, a Tolkien-inspired concept album that finally became the band's first American release a year later. Century Media began reissuingportions of the band's back catalog in the U.S. the same year. In 2002, the band released A Night at the Opera, and followed up four years laterwith A Twist in the Myth. The German power metal quartet released its ninth studio album, At the Edge of Time, in 2010 followed by acompilation of re-recorded and remixed songs called Memories of a Time to Come in 2012. « hide
