I really like Nightfall In Middle-Earth too, and I can even listen to A Night At The Opera and A Twist In The Myth every now and then, but I have never found anything of interest on At The Edge Of Time, and all songs I've listened on youtube of Beyond The Red Mirror wasn't very exciting...
By the way, you're into a bit of punkrock if I got it right? I remember you doing that good old Discharge joke in another thread haha
Check this out, it's fucking amazing how similar Blind Guardian once was to the old punk band GBH!! Both drumming, riffing and vocals could have been replaced with one another and nobody would even notice haha. Check the first 30-40 seconds of these tracks

Iron Maiden will remain my all-time favorite band, but Blind Guardian are seriously closing in, and I spin all early albums a lot lately.
