Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars "At The Edge Of Time" is the 9th full-length studio album by German power metal act Blind Guardian. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in July 2010. The album is the first album release by Blind Guardian since "A Twist in the Myth (2006)".

"Sacred Worlds" opens the album in symphonic style and almost recalls the orchestral grandur and semi-progressive nature of the music on "A Night at the Opera (2002)" (and actually closes the album in a similar symphonic style with "Wheel of Time"), but the band have more things up their sleeve. "At The Edge Of Time" is actually quite the varied album with both epic symphonic tracks, faster paced speed/power metal tracks and folky tracks. In other words all the best from the Blind Guardian songwriting formula. Compared to "A Twist in the Myth (2006)", "At The Edge Of Time" features less hard rock elements and a more metal oriented sound. Blind Guardian occassionally visit their more raw early- to mid-90s speed/power metal style albeit in a more polished, less raw, and more epic and symphonic sounding format and it´s nice to hear that they haven´t forgotten how to play harder edged music yet.

"At The Edge Of Time" is a well produced affair even though I could have wished for at less dry and sterile drum production. The musicianship are impeccable as usual and the songwriting clever and intriguing. Personally I was slightly disappointed by "A Twist in the Myth (2006)" and I welcome the return to a more metal oriented sound on "At The Edge Of Time". I guess there are little here that will surprise anyone but it´s still a greatly enjoyable and high quality release deserving a 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating.

2 stars I read many very positive reviews about this new album of Blind Guardian and that's why I gave it a try. I think that the last record "A Twist In The Myth" had its strong moments but the last really convincing and intense album was "Imaginations from the other side", the only album of that which I r ...

3 stars When I heard Blind Guardian was making a new album, I was pretty excited...mainlt cause those guys rule the European metal roost. And I saw the cover art...and was like WOW!
