I have contemplated working on a Blind Guardian addition for some time now, but since it is a contreversial addition I am waiting and currently adding more acceptable bands.

So where are those albums (the albums, not the whole band) on a prog scale from 1 to 10 for you? Remember that there are bands like Manowar, so don't tell me that Nightfall is 1/10.Wink

A Night at the Opera is a very proggy album.  ...And Then There was Silence is a great epic, surrouded by great matierial with structure, variation, and creativity.  Blind Guardian isn't the most progressive band, but they certainly are not devoid of progressive traits.

Well, surely BG have some progressive elements in their sound, no problem at all with it. But only because they have, they don't play Progressive Metal. For example: If a band has Death Metal, Blues or Country elements in its sound, is it a Death Metal, Blues or Country band than?
Is METALLICA Progressive Metal because of "The Thing That Should Not Be"?Wink
Is WATCHTOWER Thrash Metal because of "Energetic Disassembly"?Wink
Is IRON MAIDEN Progressive Metal because of "Rime Of The Ancient Mariner"?Wink
...

@MikeEnRegalia
Well, MANOWAR are about -666 Prog IMHOLOL

Blind Guardian recorded at least one progressive album (depending on whom you ask it's either Nightfall or NatO), and that's why they will be included. Not because of single songs, or because of any particular element they use in their music. If you don't agree about that ... I don't mind at all!Tongue

No, but most songs of that album are quite progressive.
Is WATCHTOWER Thrash Metal because of "Energetic Disassembly"?Wink
I guess so.
Is IRON MAIDEN Progressive Metal because of "Rime Of The Ancient Mariner"?Wink
No, not quite.
