3 stars 30 years ago Blind Guardian released their second album. More thrashy than the previous one but there's more important thing about this record. Song Banish from Sanctuary is fully shaped in Guardian style. This is where the journey begins. Listen to the chorus, "the darkness in me is filling me with pain". The rest of the album is mostly good or very good. Valhalla is a great song featuring Kai Hansen (ex Helloween, Gamma Ray) on vocals. The whole effort isn't as much Helloweenish as their debut though. They gained more self consciousness yet this is still far from perfection. Obviously a good album, great in some places. Luckily there was more to come.
