I’m on a hill hiding in bushes and watching Uruk-hai warriors marching right towards a small hobbit village. I can’t warn the hobbits, I’m too far away. All I can do is wish that there’s someone else that can help them. Maybe the riders of Rohan. I see a huge black dragon breathing fire in the sky. Suddenly I hear my phone ringing and I wake up. I realise that I have been daydreaming while listening to the upcoming Summoning album ‘Old Mornings Dawn’. Continue reading Music Review: Summoning – Old Mornings Dawn

According to Wikipedia, Blind Guardian had intended to record a DVD since early 1998, however, due to the band’s high requirements, no existing metal festival had been considered suitable. Instead, the band decided to create their own festival, back in their homeland. The First Blind Guardian Festival was held in Coburg, Germany, at June 16–17, 2003. It lasted 2 days, with the band playing during both nights. The entire show has been professionally recorded and subsequently released on a DVD entitled Imaginations through the Looking Glass on June 14, 2004.
