The single for "And Then There Was Silence," for example, reached #1 in Spain and #7 in Canada, despite its length. Blind Guardian's popularity has continued to grow from an initial following in Europe and Japan to one of the most well-known power metal bands in the world. On several occasions the audience has been known to sing along even to André Olbrich's guitar solos.

This technique, especially notable in the guitar and vocal tracks, creates the impression of a vast army of musicians playing in unison and singing in harmony. Blind Guardian's music is characterized by the classic fast guitars and double bass drumming of power metal, but is relatively unique in its use of overdubs to create an extremely dense, "epic" sound.
