Mini-review of A Twist in the Myth upon first listen: Similar sound to A Night at the Opera and some songs are also reminiscent of Nightfall in Middle-Earth. Skalds and Shadows is easily my favorite, because I love their medieval-ish tunes. It makes me want to dance. :) Otherland, Carry the Blessed Home, Lionheart, and The New Order also struck me. Had previously heard Fly, Another Stranger Me, and the acoustic version of Skalds and Shadows. Also, there’s an interview with Blind Guardian as the last track on the cd.
Lyrics that stuck out to me:
I am the soul collector dressed in ebony
Will there be faeries or things to fear?
Speak to me, it all would be easier
Would you believe in a tale like this, a lay of bliss?
Songs I will sing of runes and rings
Dream in the shadows
The blood of sirens on my hands
