My favourite song on Far Away from the Sun. Originally it was "Cries From a Restless Soul" and then "Beyond All Horizons" overtook it, but I've settled on this one for a few years now. 1:56 - 3:30 is the best section of the song for me, but obviously the whole thing is amazing.
Top YouTube comment sums this up almost perfectly: "The intro is like a giant death machine chugging along."
So, I was listening to Crimson Glory's self-titled again. Honestly, I don't listen to it as much as other albums because eventually I end up running into this one. It's not because I think it's a bad track. It isn't. It's mostly due to the fact that it is one of the darkest, most harrowing and depressing songs in this entire genre. Really, it's this track that absolutely cemented the entire album as a fine work of art. You would have required balls of steel to bookend an album like this one with this song. Midnight's vocals are some of the best I've heard here. There are very few vocalists who are this refined in technique but can display this much raw emotion. His death makes it even harder to listen to because it only reinforces that he died far too soon. Very few like him come along.
Also, I don't really cry to songs like some other people I know but back in 2010, after his death...I just could not keep myself from doing so. It felt like a sledgehammer to the stomach every time I heard the first few notes play.
nice tribute to a band and song i love greatly, thanks.
You're welcome. Ah, shit. Now I have to listen to some Bolt Thrower to shake off this major case of DA FEELZ.
I also love Crimson Glory. Midnight rules forever.
I generally prefer Blind Guardian's early material to their later, more saccharine stuff like this. But god that chorus is so fucking sweet. I want to read the Silmarillion just to have context for this.
literally the first power metal song i ever heard.
I assume it formed your lifelong love of the genre.
i did like it plenty actually haha. fair to say nosferatu was what got the ball rolling though.
One of the best title tracks ever.
Here's a personal fave from 1937 taken from the classic Pioneers of the Jazz Guitar comp. It's admirable how skillful and talented those old-time guitarists were that they could create and record music that would still sound great nearly a century later.
John Cali and Tony Guttuso - "Hittin' on All Six"
