Ah, the mighty Blind Guardian, the behemoth of German power metal. I don't know if there's a band out there that can stand close to them in my estimation. Epic doesn't quite describe them, powerful sounds inadequate, words can't do justice to the experience of seeing these guys live. Watch this:

There's just some bands that truly captivate their audiences and bring out the passion in them, and Blind Guardian are one of those bands, the above video is proof of that. See at 6:42 as Hansi Kursch is about to say something, but is struck silent by crowd, the look on his face says it all. This is just an incredible example of how live music can eclipse any other experience of music. Having seen them live before, it's just breathtaking.

The only words that come to mind about their live show are "boring, horrible, massive disappointment", etc.
