Blind Guardian - Fly (Nuclear Blast Records) - Back
As an earlier taste from their upcoming album, Blind Guardian release a CD single with the song “Fly.” This single includes two other songs not available on their upcoming album “A Twist In The Myth.” “Fly” is a decent tune and should get most of their fans across the world something to look forward to when their new disc comes out. The atmosphere in the tune has a little bit of a Japanese tone to it. A little different from their norm, but it’s still Blind Guardian. Hansi Kursch’s familiar vocals once again add to the vitality of their songs. The second track on this CD is “Skalds and Shadows,” which you can find on their new album, but this one is a little different. Tis an acoustic version of “Skalds and Shadows,” majestic and classic sounding to thine ear. Finishing off this three song single is their cover of “In A Gadda Da Vida.” A great song for a metal band to cover! I enjoyed it quite a bit because they made the Iron Butterfly song their own. I would assume these tracks were created alongside the other tracks for full-length, which were recorded, mixed, and mastered at Twilight Hall Studios. Charlie Bauerfeind and the band produced them. Bauerfeind also engineered and mastered these songs. I’m sure their new album will be worth the wait.
