Re-release of the first official live album by legendary German Progressive Epic Speed/Power Metal band.
"At The Edge Of Time" is a fairly diverse album that got influences from Euro-Folk to Classical to Progressive Rock. These German veterans have been around since the mid-’80s, and whether they are being influenced for, "At The Edge Of Time" maintains a stubbornly pre-’90s outlook — both musically and lyrically. The lyrics are strictly fantasy-based, as were so many pre-90s Metal lyrics. Blind Guardian continue to live and breath the ’70s and ’80s, reminding us that they enjoy the pomp of Queen as much as they enjoy the pomp of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.
Some will complain that this 64-minute CD sounds dated, but then, dated is exactly what Blind Guardian are going for; they don’t run away from it, they embrace it. Besides, one man’s dated is another man’s classicist.
Maybe not quite essential, "At The Edge Of Time" is an engaging album that not only achieves a fair amount of diversity within a Power and Progressive Metal framework — it is also one of the more consistent releases that Blind Guardian have provided in the 21st century!
Limited Special Edition Deluxe Enhanced release includes Bonus CD with extra tracks, video and studio documentary, as well as Download Coupon that gives access to various content.
Nuclear Blast GmbH, 2010 (NB 2287-0). Made in Germany. First press.
