Blind Guardian Remasters
With the remaster of my AMV "Soujiro's Lost Soul" in progress, which uses Blind Guardian's "Punishment Divine" I have been listening to Blind Guardian's remastered albums that were released just last year. The remasters start with their first album "Battalions of Fear" and go all the way up to "Nightfall in Middle Earth."
I'm a huge Blind Guardian fan, and I agree that most of their older songs are better than their new ones. But I had never really been able to listen to their old stuff, because the masters sucked. The guitar was just way too low and the instruments kinda meshed together and clashed. It didn't have the vibrancy and quality their newer albums have. But that was before the remasters were released. Blind Guardian take all of their old songs, and up the quality to that of their current releases, making these old albums much better than they were when they first came out.
All of the remasters can be found on Dioses Del Metal (this link brings you to an archive page of 2007 albums including these Blind Guardian albums) I Highly recommend them all.
