And Then There Was Silence by Blind Guardian


"And Then There Was Silence" is a song by the German power metal band Blind Guardian. It was released in November 2001 as the lead single from their album, A Night at the Opera album. The song is based on The Iliad by Homer and on the Aeneid by Virgil, and narrates the final days of Troy, as foreseen by Cassandra, daughter of the king of the destroyed city.

The song is so intricate and features so many tracks that it alone required as much production time as the rest of the A Night at the Opera album.
