Initial release on No Remorse Records got a green cd tray. Grey came later or were replaced. I have seen only green trays in stores.

Possibly my favorite album by a band ever. The choir chant at the begining prepares you for the Sonic assault that is to come. Banish from sanctuary is melodic and heavy. Damned for all time is a full speed assault. Follow the blind is the weakest track but catchy and dark all at once. Hall of the king kicks back into overdrive and prepares you for what I consider the best song of the album 'fast to madness". It is an ode to elrich of melnibone and a riff fest unlike anything since it's inception. Beyond the ice is a melodic and high paced instrumental showing the talents of the band itself musically. Valhalla is a fan favorite blind guardian anthem featuring the vocal prowess of helloween/gamma Ray singer Kai Hansen.
The album closes with don't break the circle and Barbara ann/long tall Sally covers.

One of my favorite pieces of German metal history.

Is there any difference between this 3rd press from Virgin and the 1st press on CD from No Remorse Records?

Blind Guardian's Follow The Blind is one of the most underrated Blind Guardian album. I was deceived the first time I heard it. Nevertheless, when I put the ear a second time, I loved this album.

In fact, this Blind Guardian release is the essence of sword and sorcery (Moorcock or Fritz Leiber). All the atmosphere is heavy, dark and doomed. Hansi Kürsch has one of his most guttural voice, whereas the Thomas Stauch's beat can't let the listener free. Marcus Siepen's rythms are truly skilled and repetitives (but it's not a bad point on this release). Added to the André Olbrich's well constructed solos, the Blind wake up, walk, and you must follow him if you don't want to be lost in twilight hall.

Of course, there are speed tracks (it's a speed metal band !) like Banished From Sanctuary, Valhalla, or Don't Break The Circle. And these are fantastics, masterpiece of Speed Metal.
But the other tracks and in particular Follow The Blind have a lower tempo, a damned tempo. But it reprepresents all the album's mind : Damnation. It's not a hazard if two songs are written on Elric, the Moorcock's character, Eternal Champion and eternal damned. And because we're not in Black Metal or Doom Metal, the listener would be surprised to listen so heavier compositions.

So, this release must be listened a lot of time to be marked as well.
