Music-Review-Album-cover"A Twist in the Myth" was released in 2006 by the German power-metal band Blind Guardian. It is the eighth album in the Blind Guardian collection, featuring 51 minutes of original music, with the addition of commentary. As the name suggests, "A Twist in the Myth" pulls influence from literature and mythological lore. Speed guitar reference tales varying from Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde to ancient Nordic bard songs.
Blind guardian is a heavy/power metal band that was founded in 1984. Originally called Lucifer's Heritage, the band agreed to change the name to avoid false connections to Satanism as well as to separate them from the emerging death metal genre. Blind Guardian is considered the pioneer of power metal, using progressive guitar riffs and heavy backing vocals as the backbone of their music. The band tours worldwide, and has recorded soundtracks for several movies and games, including "In the Name of the King." Although cycling through several members, the band retains the majority of their musicians and all of the spirit of their art.
