The Best Power Metal Album Of 2010

Lyrics (10)

Staff review by
Demonic Tutor

The bards have come out of the forest. Yes, the Blind Guardians are back baby! And did they ever do it in style. Surely one of the year's most anticipated albums, At The Edge Of Time is sure to rank high on personal lists for a while.

Hit in the face with the 9+ minute long opening masterpiece "Sacred World", I had to replay it for half an hour before being able to continue on with the rest of the album. Majestic orchestral intro, grand entrance killer riffs, and vocals to die for. The first thought that went through my head at that exact time "This is already better than the entire previous album". Hell, this is Blind Guardian with a renewed energy and a hint of progressive influences I only dreamt about in the past.

Extremely overrated album. I really don't get it...

Really men, well i'm a really big fan of Power Metal, but when i've heard a couple of songs of this album, then i thought, what the fuck, i'm gonna delete this...this is so much progressive metal than the tradicional Power Metal that i've usually hear, like Helloween or Gamma Ray and then come some guys from anywhere thinking that they can put better songs than the original Power Metal with some acoustic songs, that makes me puke, honestly! Men, i like the cover from the album, that's all! I mean, this album may be good for the fans of the band or the Power/Progressive genre but for my was enougth hear 2 musics, and i don't know where i've buy many pacience to hear 2 or 3 songs from this album! Dismissed!

You cannot judge an album just listening 2 or 3 songs, I know why I tell you that

Rating: 6 Is this considered power metal? If so, no wonder I have about TWO power metal albums in my ENTIRE collection. I gave this release a few spins but I just don't get it - what am I missing? I guess power metal doesn't melt my butter...

Yea, especially when each song is so different in this. And the fast power-metalish songs come later in the album, with peak being Voice In The Dark

Rating: 8 Good album, but killer songs is only two: Sacred Worlds and A Voice In The Dark...

  Really one of the absolute best albums of 2010! Killer album from start to end. I don't think I can name one bad song on this album!
scapeplan - 10.02.2013 at 07:32  
  Great album, I think my highlights would be Sacred Worlds, A Voice In The Dark, and War Of The Thrones.

Rating: 10 I really don't understand all those comments like "baaah it's more progressive than power", I don't care if it's Power Metal, Progressive Metal or Melodic Progressive Power Germanic Bardic Metal...
I don't like an album for its label or for something else but for its songs, and those songs are just amazing!
And I'm not afraid to say that this album is nothing less than a true masterpiece made by true geniuses!

I mean, writing a song like Sacred Worlds would be a dream for thousands of bands!

Rating: 9 Just listened to this today!
Yeah, it great....especially the first and last songs...don't have anything else like those in other album I own

Rating: 6 Though I have to admit Sacred Worlds is an addictive song (in fact, that song alone earned the rating), my overall feeling is...boredom. I gave the album a couple of chances, even heard some of the songs live, but I still find nothing in it. And it really doesn't matter whether I choose to call it Porgressive, Power, Symphonic or whatever.

  Very good

Rating: 8 "Sacred Worlds"
I wish there were more bands that could make me excited about a cheesy, epic, 9-minute, symphonic power metal song, written for a video game.

Rating: 8 As much as I like this album the production prevents me from rating any higher.
