On Sale Fri, June 16 @ 10am

From its early days as a speed metal group to a much more ambitious unit
experimenting with choirs, orchestras, epic arrangements and fantastical
imagery, Blind Guardian has become one of the reigning acts of the European
metal scene. One of Germany's most popular musical exports, Blind Guardian
has been banging heads with their brand of metal for twenty years.

Battalions of Fear, the group's 1988 album, helped spread the word beyond the
band's home country and by 1990's Tales From the Twilight World, the Krefeld
quartet was drawing hundreds of people to its shows. Japanese metal fans went
crazy for 1992's Somewhere Far Beyond, leading to Blind Guardian's first live
release, Tokyo Tales. By the 1995 album Imaginations from the Other Side the
band was a force to be reckoned with in Europe as well. Central and South
America soon succumbed to the power of Blind Guardian as well, as did North
America, where the group's shows began attracting thousands of metal fans.
Fly, the act's latest and first for the Nuclear Blast label, is another
full-fledged metal extravaganza filled with Blind Guardian's trademark
bombast, flexibility, dynamics, heavy grandeur and unrelenting catchiness.

History plays a large part in European metal band Leaves' Eyes' second album,
Vinland Saga. Following Leif Erickson's epic journey to Greenland in 1000
A.D., the disc mixes singer Liv Kristine Krull's lyrical imaginings of the
voyage with the band's genre-busting blend of metal riffs and sentimental
strings, resulting in both soft, folk-oriented pieces as well as wild Gothic
metal. Leaves' Eyes' second album after 2004's Lovelorn, Vinland Saga further
establishes the band as one of the freshest, most intriguing voices in
European rock.
