Well this here is my first journal. I will state an obscure or well known genre and talk about some bands. The genre and band in each entry will be different each time, so expect to see power metal twice in a row. Speaking of power metal, let start with that
Signature Track(s): Mirror Mirror, Bard's Song, Nightfall
This is an obvious one. I love Blind Guardian's epic presentation of their music. Andre Olberch's obscure tone and Hansi Kurch's amazing vocals blend so well together. And I love their theme of traveling bards. It's like, "Welcome tothe middle ages..." but really it's more like, "Welcome to Middle Earth." they do the books so much justice.
