Blind Guardian - Battalions Of Fear (1988).

Battalions of Fear is the debut album by German metal band Blind Guardian released in 1988. The album is a raw and unpolished speed metal effort that touches on thrash metal. It lacks many of the stylistic flourishes that would mark the band's music in later years, focusing more on speed and aggression.

Guardian of the Blind. Tracks 1, 3, 4, 5 and 7 are re-recordings of old demos from the band's Lucifer's Heritage era: - Track 1, 3, 5 and 7 were on the Battalions of Fear demo (1986) - Track 4 was on the Symphonies of Doom demo (1985). The song was called "Halloween" back then. Recording information: Recorded, mixed and mastered at Karo Studio, Munster, West Germany in October/November 1987. Added by: (Unknown user). Modified by: Blackmore Forever.

Battalions of Fear Lyrics. Can't believe the things I see That happens in the state By a mortal distance, I can't believe Self-destructive infernal To save us from the breed But I know that it is all a lie. Star Wars begin now His bombs come exploding Bring back the death of the night No mercy, he's knowing How strong he must show us For the last film you all get a part. Be by my side or you've to die Believe what I do is the right
