The first time I heard of Blind Guardian was in 2002, when I'd bought Iced Earth's 'Dark Genesis' collection and they were mentioned a number of times in the biography section. It wasn't too long after that I was in a music shop, coincidently in the bands home country of Germany, where I saw a double pack of 'Battalions of Fear' and it's follow-up album 'Follow the Blind' pretty cheap. Didn't even have to think about what to do.

By this point, I was no longer the young, metal whippersnapper that I was when I'd first heard of Blind Guardian. I had a good sense of what I was into, and, to be blunt, I found this album to be pretty boring and dull.

Fast-forward a couple more years, and MySpace is suddenly booming and it's easier than ever to discover bands. THAT'S when I really got into Blind Guardian! I can't remember which song I heard, but it was big! It was epic! It was bombastic! It was full of metal riffs and glorious orchestrations... it was incredible! How did I not get into this band the first time around?!

I swiftly snapped up most of the groups back-catalogue, then set to work familiarizing myself with their discography...

And that leads me right back to square one; this album is still pretty bland.

There's just nothing really exciting going on here... y'know what I mean? 'Majesty' is an okay song, but most of the tracks are pretty basic power/speed metal. The production leaves the music feeling empty of life, and a lot of the melodies, both musical and lyrical, are just boring and uninteresting.

It's not a terrible album, but if you're looking for some generic and bland 80's power metal, there's much better stuff out there.

Wow what a great album! Buy it! This version contains the 8 tracks originally on the second album "Battallions Of Fear", as well as the complete 5-track first demo "Symphonies Of Doom" when they were still called Lucifer's Heritage . And last but not least there also is 1 song from the second Lucifer's Heritage demo (also named "Battallions Of Fear) named "Gandalf's Rebirth"

My second favorite album by Blind Guardian after 'Follow the Blind', which for me are their best albums.
The album a bit short but every song is classic, the tops are: 'Majesty', 'Guardian of the Blind', 'Battalions of Fear' and 'Run for the Night'.
I like their speed metal albums more than their later power albums.
An album you should own, classic masterpiece, wish to have more like this from Blind Guardian.

Released in 1988, it sounds like it was made twenty years earlier.
The production is really poor and the power metal music is in a very basic form.
Also, I have to say, that even the mighty Hansi Kursch's vocals are fairly rank (how that guy has improved over the past 20 years).
If you own any Blind Guardian album from "Tales From The Twilight World" onwards, you will find it hard to believe that this is the same band.
Parts of this album are pretty unbearable at times.
The album is interesting in a way, as it shows how they progressed into making the fantastic "Imaginations From The Other Side" seven years later and of course their latest album, which is also a cracker.
