Blind Guardian - A Twist in the Myth (2006) Retail CD
Eighteen years on from their debut album, "Battalions Of Fear", and on this, their umpteenth album, Blind Guardian are making the usual noises about updating their sound and going in new directions. I'm, not sure why long standing band do this. After all, the phrase 'long standing' is there because folks like the noise they make and keep on buying it. It's not to hear their radical new crunk influenced direction.
Mind you, if you've heard the hit single "Fly" you'd have cause for concern. A sleeker, poppier side to Blind Guardian, it reached #1 in Japan, #4 in Spain and breached a few other countriesmore… on the way. Luckily it's a bit of an aberration as most of "A Twist In The Myth" concentrates on the symphonic progressive metal that has made their reputation.
It may be a sign of my own impending mental collapse but I can't stop returning to the power ballad "Carry The Blessed Home", despite it's faux Celtic, Eurovision feel. Worrying. Praise be then for "Lionheart" and "Skalds And Shadows", the former for it's full on metal and the latter for its utter Blackmores Night, madrigal madness.
This is a cracking release, but it does broaden their sound, something that may have a few die hards flinging their rusty, studded wristbands away in disgust. But, sensibly, they've taken baby steps, and this dragon drenched disc should keep them in flagons of mead for a while yet.
