Par Blaster of Muppets TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURSVOIX VINE le 12 juin 2009
Format: CD
"Battalions of Fear" est le premier album des légendes du speed mélodique allemand: les inégalables Blind Guardian! Mais si ce groupe est maintenu devenu un élément incontournable de la scène métal, on ne peut pas tout à fait en dire autant de leur premier essai. Il n'est pourtant pas mauvais... mais juste un honnête brouillon de ce que Blind Guardian sera en mesure de nous offrir quelques années plus tard.

Il n'y a pas grand chose à reprocher à ce "Battalions of Fear". C'est l'oeuvre dynamique d'un jeune groupe qui débute... Alors voilà, ça manque encore un peu de maturité, la production n'est pas exceptionnelle, la voix d'Hansi Kürsch est encore loin d'avoir atteint sa pleine mesure... Et les compos, bien que sympathiques, sont bien en dessous de celles que Blind Guardian nous livrera sur la plupart des albums suivants (surtout à partir des années 90).

On notera tout de même la présence de morceaux bien accrocheurs comme "Majesty", "Run for the Night" ou "Guardian of the Blind", et il ne nous échappera pas non plus que le groupe a un goût prononcé pour les tempos (très) rapides et un talent certain dans ce domaine... Rien de honteux donc, mais rien d'inoubliable non plus. Juste un vrai potentiel que notre quatre allemands auront tout le loisir d'exploiter dans les années à venir.

Voilà, tout ceci est encore bien jeune et nettement moins ambitieux, impressionnant, grandiose ou complexe que les futures réalisations de Blind Guardian. "Battalions of Fear" reste cependant un point de départ intéressant, indispensable pour le fan qui veut avoir en sa possession tout ce que le groupe peut offrir, mais qui a également pris un sacré coup de vieux.

On ne retrouve pas vraiment ce qui caractérisera le style "Blind Guardian" par la suite, mais pour tout collectionneur/fan, le premier album d'un groupe reste un indispensable !

HASH(0x9b26a174) étoiles sur 5 The Dawning of an Era 13 juin 2006
Par Tim Jewell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I first discovered Blind Guardian through their 2002 release "A Night At The Opera" and they pulled off the epic metal so well, I imagined that they had been doing this for a very long time. However, when I discovered that they had originally started off by playing pure, raw speed metal like that of Judas Priest and Metallica, I decided to check it out and see if they had just as much prowess in that vein as they did with their newer music. Therefore, I purchased their debut album and gave it a listen, being amazed at the raw power of it all. The opening of the first track "Majesty" gave me a good laugh with its happy-go-lucky opening and transition into a powerful anthem, but that was the only thing about the album that was funny or amusing. From start to finish, "Battalions of Fear" delivers heavy, fast, unadulterated metal that puts bands like Megadeth and Metallica to shame with melodic vocals, hefty riffing, and intense drumming.

If you're interested, let me break it all down for you. Leading the band is lead singer/bassist Hansi Kursch, whose vocal capacities haven't seemed to develop too much (at least in comparison to their future works, in which Hansi would lay down his bass in order to better his vocals in the tradition of power metal), but even in this albumhe has quite a gruff, powerful voice that compliments the music rather well, matching its scratchy sound. As for his bass playing, it's rather simplistic, but very fast and agile, never missing a beat when combined with his vocals. Lead guitarist Andre Olbrich had already had experience with the band in their previous form Lucifer's Heritage, so there's no messing up or sour notes from him; nothing but exigent, beautiful guitar solos to bring a sense of pure melody to the raw power provided by rhythm guitarist Marcus Siepen, who beats authoritative riffs from his guitar and adds a consistent thickness to the album. Drummer Thomen Stauch is definitely one of the best of the bunch, as he keeps a steady rhythm going in every song while pedaling fervent double-bass unlike almost anything ever heard in this sect of music, leaving him to be one of the most underrated drummers in the history of speed metal (especially when drummers like Lars Ulrich of Metallica and The Reverend of Avenged Sevenfold are thought of as gods among men, despite being only average in the field of metal).

In the end, this album is a must for any speed metal fans who want something a little more melodic, or for someone trying to complete their Blind Guardian collection. If you're looking for some great power metal from this German band you won't find much of it here, but the power and intensity that defines this wonderful band are present and accounted for, leaving nothing to be desired.

Track Selections: "Majesty", "Battalions of Fear", and "Gandalf's Rebirth"

HASH(0x9b26a684) étoiles sur 5 Blind Guardian's debut - now remixed and remastered 22 janvier 2008
Par Justin G. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
It's hard, after listening to Battalions of Fear, to believe that this is the same band who would record classic albums like Imaginations From the Other Side and Nightfall in Middle Earth.

Blind Guardian may have gone on to become the dominant force in power metal, but you'd hardly know it from their 1987 debut album. That's not to say it isn't a good album, it just isn't what you might expect. Battalions of Fear is pretty much a straightforward thrash album, which makes sense since thrash (both American and German) was the major metal style at the time. The fantasy-themed lyrics were still present, but the grand arrangements and epic concepts were nowhere to be found.
In many ways, I'm reminded of Metallica's Kill 'Em All when I listen to Battalions of Fear. They're both relatively brief albums, both concentrate on speed, both are a bit choppy and uneven, and both suffer from poor production. Perhaps more importantly, both albums would help set the bands on the road to becoming the major players in their fields. Of course Metallica has long since abandoned their thrash roots, while Blind Guardian is still the world's premier power metal band.

Battalions of Fear is vital for the dedicated Blind Guardian fan. Their other albums are a heck of a lot better, but this is where they started out. If you're new to Blind Guardian and are looking for a good starting point, skip this one and go straight to Imaginations from the Other Side. Once that one sinks in, listen to Nightfall in Middle Earth. It will likely become the standard by which you judge all other concept albums, if not all other power metal albums.

NOTE: The 2007 reissue of Battalions of Fear is not just digitally remastered; the album has been remixed as well. This makes an incredible difference in the way the album sounds, and I am thrilled to hear it. It's almost as if the band went back into the studio and rerecorded the album. Everything is sharper, clearer, and above all louder. I think this gives listeners a chance to finally appreciate all that the album had to offer. As an added bonus, the reissue includes 5 bonus tracks. These songs are the legendary Lucifer's Heritage demos, and are the earliest recordings of the band that would become Blind Guardian. The remixing/remastering is reason enough to replace your old copy of Battalions of Fear, but the Lucifer's Heritage demos are definitely a plus.

HASH(0x9b26a48c) étoiles sur 5 Classic Speed Metal 22 avril 2005
Par Evil_Tim - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is a classic example of Speed Metal majesty. Pun intended. :) This is probably one of the best Blind Guardian albums in the discography.

As much as I love later Blind Guardian works (Post-Follow The Blind, when they began playing Power Metal), I feel BG are at their best when playing pure Speeeeeeeeeed!!

Majesty has got to be my favorite song on this album. Seven and one half minutes of pure Speed Metal awesomeness.

Hansi's voice is quite raw on this album. At this point, he hasn't quite perfected his singing technique. That doesn't mean he isn't amazing, and manages to pull off some crazy high notes.

I definitely recommend this for all BG fans, and Speed Metal fans in general. One of their best albums ever and definitely worth buying. :)

HASH(0x9b26aa8c) étoiles sur 5 Battalions Of Fear Remixed & Remastered 27 novembre 2007
Par Charles - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
What we have here is Blind Guardian's debut album "Battalions Of Fear" in a "modern" shape as said by the band. The album has been completely remixed and remastered and they've added some demo songs from their early works as "Lucifer's Heritage." When I first heard "Battalions Of Fear" it sounded somewhat "typical" of a debut album from a band who has been around since the 1980s as far as sound quality goes - somewhat weak drums, thin guitars, less bass guitar presense, and reverbed vocals. The remix makes the guitars, bass and drums a lot more present - the drums pound louder than the supressed sound from the original mix, and the guitars are more clear and clean, while the bass can be heard. The vocals sound cleaner as well - it sounds like the reverb has been eliminated and there are no echoes. The overall sound quality has been increased by a lot with the clarity of all the pieces that created such great songs. Great remaster and remix - check out "Follow The Blind" as well as that was remixed with this CD and given the same treatment.

Anyone who has wanted to hear the true power of Blind Guardian's early works might want to pick up this remaster if you have the money or if you find it somewhere else for cheaper - it doesn't seem like there's an official U.S. release for the Blind Guardian remasters at the moment.

5 stars. This is worth hearing!

HASH(0x9b26aaf8) étoiles sur 5 Pure Dynamite! 8 février 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is where it all began, a group of young, unknown fire fueled German lads exploade onto the metal sceane with this 1987 masterpeice. From here Blind Guardian have propelled to status of immortal metal gods as we all know but it's great to hear the massive potential they showed at their young ages, such fire and aggression.
This has been one of the few albums that just made my jaw drop beacuse I wasn't expecting such speed, it's a musical rollercoaster.
From the metal shock in the opening of Majesty to the unforgettable riffs in Gandalf's Revenege this album is a work of genius from start to finsih. The vocals from Hansi are powerful and agressive but still raw but this perhaps benefits the albums general feel. The twin guitar attack is as fast as it is tehcnical (all hail the solo in Guardian of the Blind), and the drums are what probably hit me hardest, the speed and technical prowess of Thomen Staunch is just insane.
How the world remains oblivious to bands and music of this magnitude is beyond me, I guess were the only ones with taste!
