131ind Guard1an - A Night At The Opera (2002)
A wise stoner with filthy goggles, a cardboard box and long blonde hair once told me that power metal needs three attributes to be remembered as legendary: a huge ass sound, a huge ass sound...and a huge ass fucking sound.
Considering that the choruses and instruments have been layered some 1.5 million times (!!!!) according to A Night At The Opera's linear notes, I am inclined to believe that everyone's favorite German power metal ensemble have cut their finest record here. Hell, it may be one of the five best albums of its kind on the goddamn planet.
You already know whether or not you want this if you've read this far. LET THE WRAGGGGGE BEGIN!
Listen Here - "Sadly Sings Destiny"
