Top Ten Most Beautiful Blind Guardian Album Covers

Metal_Treasure
Everything's eligible - all albums and singles, including Live albums and "Best of".

Their album covers are as beautiful as their music and lyrics. Beautiful and dark elements go hand in hand - dwarves, dragons, aliens, bats, magicians, bards, guardians...

Most of the cover paintings are created by Andreas Marshall (1990-2003).

The Top Ten

1 Live - 2003 Live - 2003

"Live" is their second live album. And the last cover paintings by Andreas Marshall.

I love this cover - its medieval atmosphere is wonderful. A cool idea is the "Bard's Tavern", where the bards from Blind Guardian play live. You can even see one of the bards through the tavern window.
Blind Guardian really take you to another place in every sense. - Metal_Treasure
