  1. 1. Rating explanations down below

    • 10/10 - One of your very favorite artists of all time.
    • 9/10 - Killer fucking band. Or artist.
    • 8/10 - Great sound, great songs, great albums.
    • 7/10 - Very good, but not quite great.
    • 6/10 - Pretty good. More than a few songs you like. You'd entertain the thought of seeing them live if they were in the area. Or still alive.
    • 5/10 - They're okay, but maybe not something you'll go out of your way to listen to.
    • 4/10 - Meh. There may be a song or two, or an album that you dig, but you'd rather listen to other stuff.
    • 3/10 - Not very good. You will more likely than not turn the station if they come on the radio.
    • 2/10 - Not your cup of tea at all. Some people might like this, but you are not one of them.
    • 1/10 - Horrible in every way.
    • 0/10 - In the running for worst artist/musician of all time. You would rather take a cheese grater to your face than listen to this.

If you asked this in 2003 when european power metal was the only thing I listened to, these guys would be an easy 9. After expanding my horizons, Blind Guardian just doesn't have a lot of songs that excite me anymore. Still lots of face melting shredding and eye popping double bass pounding for when I'm in the mood for that kind of music.

Easy 10.  You totally brightened my day @Reed Rothchild.  I thought this was gonna be In Flames which I had quite a bit to say about too.   But this is way better. 
Blind Guardian is absolutely one of my all time favorites.  Top 5.  Possibly top 3.  
They are absolute legends and deservedly so. 
Nightfall in Middle Earth is one of the greatest heavy metal albums ever written.  Hansi is orders of magnitude a better vocalist than whatever scrubs you are into.  Andre Olbrich is absolutely one of the most underrated guitarists of all time.  He’s got technical chops for days and the licks are always tasty.  One of the biggest losses for them was when Thomen Stauch left.  He’s absolutely my favorite metal drummer who brought a groove and power to their songs that’s unrivaled except for maybe Nicko McBrain.
