Bio:

Twilight Guardians was a power metal outfit formed 1996 in Finland. The first songs were born, Angel Without Wings and Night Of The Black Swan. The bands' line-up has changed a few times, with different bass players and a vocalist. Now Twilight Guardians is a solid team, ready to take their place in the worlds metal scene!The band made few "home studio" demos at -97. Feedback was suprisingly positive and as a result of this, Twilight Guardians desided to record their mini-cd "Land Of The Kings".LOTK was an immediate success! The band got fan mail throught the world, and then it was time to make a deal with a proper record company, which now is ANGULAR-RECORDS, Germany.After the release of Tales of the Brave, T-G has done numerous shows in Finland and has been composing new songs for the forth-coming album "Wasteland". Also a lot of interwiews has been done to numerous different magazines and radio stations. TOTB has sold quite fairly around the world and the reputation of the band has grown steadily.In the year 2002 winter-spring, T-G started their studiowork. Alongside with the hard recording process, the band had to find time to make a music video and perform some live concerts as well.The new songs you will hopefully hear very soon, follows the same main lines as heard on TOTB album, but with a more spacy feeling.This year T-G will again be performing on a biggest metal festival in Finland, "Nummirock", with bands like; Amorphis, Sonata Arctica, etc.Their fourth album, Ghost Reborn, was released in Nov 2007.

Album:

Back when Finland's Twilight Guardians recorded Tales Of The Brave it wasn't frowned upon to produce a substandard product, especially in the Power Metal scene. A lot of bands that went on to record great albums began with debuts like this, and it gives the material a certain naïve charm. Those who have heard Afterworld, another Finnish act suffering from Stratovarius Fever, will know what to expect here: double kick drums, Casio-esque keyboards, sloppy neo-classical guitars, poor but enthusiastic vocals, and lyrics that straddle a mythological and religious boundary. Vocalist Vesa Virtanen sounds even stuffier on here than on the follow up, which you can hear shades of during "Just Let Me". There is real heart in this album, and when listened to with a sympathetic ear, Tales Of The Brave doesn't sound all that bad.Wasteland, the band's sophomore effort, is an album I return to time and again, and if you've yet to experience Twilight Guardians, that would be the record to pick. However, if you're interested in acquiring a lost item from the Power Metal mailbag, hunting down a copy of this, even if just for tracks with names such as "Land Of The Kings" and "Gods Of Time", might not be a bad idea.
