Late to the party with this band. Bought Battalions.
Tossed it in my car last night. Each song I was surprisingly good. First listen !
I will have to buy a second CD for sure.

Welcome to the party!

Great way to start - at the beginning! If you continue in chronological order, Follow the Blind is a very similar sounding record to Battalions of Fear, and includes their biggest fan favourite of all - Valhalla. You'll love it.

I also love that late 80's / early 90's speed metal sound.

I only like the first four and the live "Tokio Tales" . After that , it's kindda of "meh" to me . I became a fan back in 1996 , but couldN'T get into "Imaginations" and "Nightfall in Middle Earth" (which was a HUGE sucess here in Brazil back then , when they toured my country and where higly acclaimed) but the first four are great Speed/Power Metal .

I admittedly was never huge on BG like some of the bands of the genre, and only had a few albums, with Somewhere Far Beyond being the only one I was really, really into. I also had Nightfall, Night at the Opera, maybe one other.

But I just queued up "Valhalla" on Spotify based on the above comment, and wow. Amazing.

I will be listening to the rest of the album, and Battalions today.

Their Old style was cool , but now I understand the move . It was great , but a lot LIMITED . their music revolved around one string tgtgtgtgtgtgtgtgtgtgtgtgtgtgtgtgtgtg kind of playing , not much variety to enjoy .

I'm a fan of their entire discography but I went with Somewhere Far Beyond.

A cool write-up worth reading. Summarizes each record well.

Currently listening to "At the Edge of Time" right now. Great album. I voted for "Tales from the Twilight World" as it was my first BG album many moons ago.
