Date : 
celkom ma prekvapuje zatiaľ dosť nízke (alebo skôr priemerné) hodnotenie nového albumu od Blind Guardian - "The God Machine". Počúvam ho už viac krát po sebe, pričom práve novinka sa mi zdá byť tvrdšia ako posledný počin, ktorý vyšiel pred siedmimi rokmi (nepočítam z môjho pohľadu zatiaľ nepodarený experiment z roku 2019 "Legacy of the Dark Lands"). A taktiež je po hudobnej stránke je najbližšie k starším albumom kapely. Album kombinuje Speed/Power/Heavy Metal, pričom striedajú sa rýchlejšie pasáže s pomalšími alebo s časťami piesní v strednom tempe. Obsahuje všetky známe prvky kapely, či už speedové riffovanie (toto na B.G. milijem) / melodické vyhrávky, úderné, no aj pestré bicie a typický a ľahko rozpoznateľný Hansi -ho melodický spev + zborové refrény. Piesne sú rozmanité, majú zložitejšiu štruktúru a nenudia. Jedine obal ma až tak nezaujal: je taký zvláštny (má aj pekné prvky, no aj také, ktoré sa mi nepáčia). ale ide hlavne o hudbu a tá je na novinke podarená.

다시 그들의 스타일로 돌아가려는 모습을 보인 것 자체로 보너스 점수를 주게된다. 힘있는 리듬파트와 앨범을 관통하는 서사, 블가만의 스타일 까지.. 킬링 트랙이 있었으면 하는 진한 아쉬움이 남는다.

De los mejores discos de 2022. Muy buen álbum.

블라인드 가디언 전체 디스코그래피에서 세손가락안에 들만한 걸작. Blind Guardian Twilight Orchestra에서의 경험 덕인지 오케스트라 활용이 능숙하고 한층 웅장한 사운드 창조.

I thoroughly enjoyed this album. The singer has quite a voice, but I wish he would alternate between tones more often for variety.

I loved hear blind guardian with anger again! More fury and less orchestral like old days.

통으로 들으니 생각보다 괜찮네. 킬링트랙은 몇곡은 훌륭하지만 나머지곡이 살짝 아쉽다.

곡들이 서로 비슷해서 분리가 잘 되지않는 단점이 있지만 전반적으로 매우 뛰어난 곡들이 많고, 특유의 기타톤을 유지하면서도 중세적 분위기를 조금 더 소거하려는 작곡적 방향이 느껴진다. 다만 에반게리온과 너무 비슷하게 생긴 Peter Mohrbacher의 Gadreel를 앨범 커버로 가져온것은 중세미를 탈피하겠다는 의지로 느껴지지만 너무 멀리 가버린 느낌이다.

가디언스타일의 유니크함이 여전하다. 리얼 오케스트라 사운드도 들려주며 흥미로운 기타 플레이까지 다채로운 사운드를 들려준다. 한지의 보컬 역시 여전히 쌩쌩함이다. 근데 드럼 좀 바꿔라 제발.. 언제까지 이 거지 같은 드럼플레이를 들어야되나.. 그립읍니다 오멘형님..
