Blind Guardian – “Twilight of the Gods” out on December 5, 2014!

The wait is over! Blind Guardian is back! The world’s most popular fantasy metal band gives us Twilight of the Gods; the first single from their long-awaited new album, to be unleashed upon the world in January 2015.

“Twilight of the Gods”, the first creation of the Krefeld, Germany based band in more than four years will be released on December 5, 2014 via Nuclear Blast. Blind Guardian vocalist Hansi Kürsch assures, “this song is a statement about Blind Guardian. The pure definition of all that the band stands for: it is innovative, melodic and brutal.” And thus a perfect choice to get fans into the proper mood for the upcoming album.

“Twilight of the Gods” is a “neck breaker” in the true tradition of Blind Guardian “that will captivate you with the most epic and catchy chorus we’ve ever written,” says Kürsch.

In “Twilight of the Gods” Blind Guardian is singing about the deities’ waning power; no such times are in sight for the band. Blind Guardian is back with a vengeance; with an impressive single from an overwhelming record!

BLIND GUARDIAN CONTINUE WORK ON NEW ALBUMS

January 25th, 2013

BlindGuardian2010f_1278039150[1]In his 2013 New Year’s Address recently posted on the band’s website, BLIND GUARDIAN frontman Hansi Kürsch offers an update on: a) the long-promised orchestral album, and b) the new studio album.  Some excerpts:

“…[T]hroughout the last 18 months we have recorded 7 songs in Prague. There probably is a handful of additional songs to record during this year, but they are also already finalized with regard to composition. In theory we do not need any further songs for this album but ideas simply seem to flow endlessly… The reason why this album is still far from being released is partly based on the regular album, which we definitely would like to release first. At this point in time I am in a very tricky situation. How to continue from here? I think it is probably easiest to simply continue by telling you something about the regular album since this would be next anyway. Keep in mind that ‘next’ is relative!

“…[W]e have started working on four songs and already were able to finish two songs musically. The working titles are ‘Encrypted Time’ (I think this title is inspired by André’s passion for World of Warcraft or so – I can only guess…) and ‘The Ocean’ (here, André has been inspired by my undefined mumbling in the song). ‘Encrypted Time’ is a modern speed metal song with some tribal aspects and some ‘70s inspirations, while ‘The Ocean’ is a very progressive (this time I talk about ELP meets Savatage art rock when I say progressive) orchestra dominated song which will give you a further glimpse of what to expect from the orchestral album. I am clueless about the right story board for ‘Encrypted Time’ but ‘The Ocean’ could be used as a theme opener for the orchestral project. We will see… The other four songs seem to turn out very special and obviously very different. Working titles: ‘The Irish Hill,’ ‘Prophecies,’ ‘Soundtrack 2,’ and ‘Midtempo Song.’ I cannot tell you exactly about how many times we have had a song over the years which was first called ‘Midtempo Song.’ I am pretty sure we are not the only band abusing this spectacular title over and over again. Thank God, the title is not copyright protected, yet.  We would be in trouble then. Maybe it is and that’s the reason why it barely ever ended up as a title on the album.”

Greatly inspired by life experience, world myths, and legends, BLIND GUARDIAN was founded in 1984 in Krefeld, Germany.  Known for combining majestic orchestral sequences with quieter, Renaissance-styled acoustic arrangements, the merits of  the band’s emotion-packed music quickly spread via word-of-mouth and laid the foundation for a very rabid fan base that has continued to support the band throughout their career.

In 2010, BLIND GUARDIAN’s tenth studio album, At The Edge Of Time, attained the highest first-week sales numbers in the United States in the history of the band’s existence and secured the #1 position on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.  It also debuted at #108 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.  In Canada, At The Edge Of Time debuted at #18 on the Top Hard Music Albums chart and #108 on the Top 200 chart according to Nielsen Canadian Soundscan.

Hansi spoke with us about the band’s latest best of entitled MEMORIES OF A TIME TO COME, an update on what the band is doing, and where the band is heading, along with a couple of quick questions on other things that fans will be interested in.

Tuska Open Air 2011 – Suvilahti Helsinki Finland

August 27th, 2011

Tuska11_665x200.jpg

Tuska Open Air 2011

Suvilahti, Helsinki, Finland

July 22-24, 2011



Review by Arto Lehtinen, Petri Seppänen Da Costa

Pics by Arto Lehtinen, Sini Huotari

The Tuska Open Air Festival has become one kind of institution amongst all metal festivals in Europe. Tuska was previously arranged in the heart of Helsinki in the central park Kaisaniemi during the past 10 years. The park underwent construction to have a better environment and other mandatory improvements. The organization of Tuska didn’t have a choice but to find and switch the whole festival to a new area. This new area is still located in Helsinki, but only a few kilometers away, to a place called Suvilahti. Having this area was definitely a big part of the whole idea and concept of Tuska. The Kaisaniemi park brought an intimate picnic and park feeling with the grass and trees. Whereas Suvilahti was more like an industrial environment with the burning and redhot asphalt under the feet.

Another thing forcing Tuska to make a change was the date. Originally the festival was supposed to be in the beginning of July, but another big more international based festival took over the date and Tuska was postponed until three weeks later. Well at least some people got pissed off at the changed date. Obviously a few band negotiations needed to start all over. Hopefully Tuska will return back to the original date. However, the line-up looked amazing after all. Morbid Angel and Amon Amarth were headliners, so was Devin Townsend once again. Cult metal bands like Hell, Bulldozer and then something type of stuff such as Jex Thoth, Church Of Misery. The festival was an utter success although the event wasn’t sold out. All in all 28000 people visited Tuska during three days.

Metal-Rules.com was present to check out a lot of bands and check out the new Tuska area.

BLIND GUARDIAN

BLIND GUARDIAN

Hansi Kürsch, lead singer for Germany’s beloved sons BLIND GUARDIAN, has issued the following band update:

 

“A long, long time ago we promised additional material for the ones who bought the digi-pak version of At the Edge Of Time. As usual, things take far longer than expected, but at the very end, we keep our promise.  This is just another perfect example.  Enjoy our alternate mixing ideas for ‘Curse My Name’ and ‘Wheel Of Time.’  One appears a little heavier, the other a little more ‘Riverdance-ish.’ :-)  Enjoy music, enjoy life.”

 

Check your digi-pak for access codes and more information about how to access the bonus material.

 

BLIND GUARDIAN recently announced they are teaming up with German fantasy author Markus Heitz to work on a monumental concept album.

 

Their tenth studio album, At The Edge Of Time, attained the highest first-week sales numbers in the United States in the history of the band’s existence.  With sales of over 4,500 units, At The Edge Of Time secured the #1 position on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and also debuted at #108 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.  In Canada, the album debuted at #18 on the Top Hard Music Albums chart and #108 on the Top 200 chart according to Nielsen Canadian Soundscan.

BLIND GUARDIAN: MONUMENTAL CONCEPT ALBUM IN THE WORKS

August 5th, 2011

BLIND GUARDIAN

Hansi Kürsch, lead singer for Germany’s beloved sons BLIND GUARDIAN, has issued the following band update:

 

“Busy seasons are usually harbingers of great things to come.  Festivals, regular studio work, and, above all, the orchestral album are making this a very exciting summer for us. Let’s keep the focus on the orchestral album one more time. We have spectacular news!

 

“Every orchestral project needs a concept and such a concept demands a great story. To get a story that fits together perfectly with our majestic music, we are joining forces with Germany’s best fantasy author Markus Heitz (check out his Die Zwerge [The Dwarves] series).  Markus is one of my favorite writers of ‘high fantasy.’  I have been really amazed by several of his books over the last years, but was finally and completely convinced about him being the perfect choice for our project by Gerechter Zorn [Righteous Wrath] – the first part of his newest trilogy, Die Legenden der Albae [Legends of the Albae]. The way he weaves in different aspects to his splendid universe immediately told me that the quest for the one to come up with the right story for our music was over.  Although the final completion of this quite unusual cooperation most probably will keep us busy until 2013, things nonetheless become clearer the more we exchange ideas. The creation of a great new storyboard and the involvement of such a suitable concept are the perfect frame for this ‘soundtrack/musical-like’ anthems we have come up with over the years. It is absolutely great that Markus is willing to follow us on such an ambitious voyage.

 

“One very interesting aspect certainly is the definite intention to combine the identity of our music (in a quite different shape) with one of Markus’ most famous, but not completely discovered, worlds and its heroes. I have no doubt that we will design great new images and come up with nothing but pure magic. Luckily, Markus was very familiar with our band and music. Since he has been part of the fantasy scene almost as long as we have, he grew up with our music when he was a die-hard fantasy role-playing gamer in the ’80s and ’90s. This, of course, makes my life far easier in exchanging ideas and in explaining what we need to complete a perfect conceptual album. There is so much interaction: At one point it is the music dictating the story; at other points, it is the story having an ultimate impact on the album’s completion.  Pure creativity!  In addition, Markus is a very nice and down-to-earth person who has a very special view on things.  Last but not least, he has been very pleased with the pieces of music we provided him with.  By now I can feel a certain jealousy coming up within you. We will keep you updated. The journey has just begun.”

 

BLIND GUARDIAN’s tenth studio album, At The Edge Of Time, attained the highest first-week sales numbers for the band in the United States in the history of their existence.  With sales of over 4,500 units, At The Edge Of Time secured the #1 position on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and also debuted at #108 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.  In Canada, the album debuted at #18 on the Top Hard Music Albums chart and #108 on the Top 200 chart according to Nielsen Canadian Soundscan.

BLIND GUARDIAN Update from Hansi!

March 15th, 2011
BLIND GUARDIAN

BLIND GUARDIAN

Another year, another message. Here, as promised a little while ago, the ultimate report about what we were dealing with the past few months and what to expect for the upcoming year.

I assume everyone reading these lines has had a chance to discover At the Edge of Timeand hopefully still enjoys it as much as we do. The very positive feedback we have gotten worldwide is of course a strong motivation for us. As said at other places before, we consider this album as the perfect connection between new and old. It contains a little bit of everything but still has a strong musical thread running throughout and offers us many options for our next projects.

It is no surprise when I tell you that the next journey will certainly lead us into an even more classical direction. There will be a few more trips to Prague necessary to finalize all orchestral recordings for our classical project but all things must come to an end eventually. The result of the stuff we have already recorded keeps me in a very good and optimistic mood, even though I consider the wait until the project’s completion very painful. Charlie [Bauerfeind] and I nonetheless will start working on the first vocal recordings during the next days. Since we will be interrupted by quite a lot of upcoming shows I would be happy if I were to find myself in a position to finish the first five songs vocalwise before the year is over. It is challenging stuff for everyone. One fine day, all of a sudden, when no one expects it, I will announce its completion. Certainly not within the next twelve months, but one very, very fine day.

From one long-term project to another. As we had time to share some serious moments with each other during the 70000 Tons of Metal cruise (somewhere on the oceans of time) Jon [Schaffer; Iced EarthSons of Liberty] and I had finally found the chance to put our minds together for a possible next Demons & Wizards album. We cheerfully simultaneously announced our wish to start working on it as quickly as possible. Although time is an issue for both of us we nonetheless decided to start songwriting together during the European summer festival season when Jon will be in Europe for Iced Earth performances. During that season we will use every possible moment to complete as much material as possible. To guarantee a good-mood-songwriting feeling I have already saved some good bottles of red wine and a smaller amount of Johnny Walker black label in our studio. Things are still in the mist but we are about to recognize structures of a busy future.

As for the people who have bought the limited edition and may have started wondering about the promised additional stuff on the connected media page I can, one more time, promise that your waiting will soon be over and all your doubts about the value of having such questionable access will be erased. We have several things we are about to accomplish during the next days. Once finished we will make an official announcement telling you when the material will be available for download.

Apart from having worked on some remixes of the new stuff we obviously were able to catch a lot of impressions from our time on the road during the last months. Touring in all these European and Northern American venues was a definite blast and we cannot wait to hit the next countries and cities fairly soon. As we recorded most of the shows we have played so far, I can tell you that there have been a number of outstanding magic moments. I mostly was impressed by the great response the new stuff has gotten. Even when we toured in the early nineties it usually took one round to establish new material. But that is not the case with any of the new ones we played. They immediately got very significant responses each night. Another approval for their quality, I dare to say. Of course, we will try to come up with more new songs for the shows we are going to play during the next months. Since we have some time to waste until then we have decided to work on even more songs to be performed for these shows. I will keep it a secret which songs we are working on… though it won ‘t be many, I have to confess. Yes, I know how to spoil a story. It ‘s one of my best qualities – apart from looking cool while sitting on a chair.

Enjoy life.

HEAVY METAL FILM FESTIVAL PREMIERE: BLIND GUARDIAN ‘TRAVELERS AT THE EDGE OF TIME’

March 11th, 2011
BLIND GUARDIAN ‘TRAVELERS AT THE EDGE OF TIME’

BLIND GUARDIAN - ‘TRAVELERS AT THE EDGE OF TIME’

Sponsored by Nuclear Blast USA, Decibel Magazine, Amoeba Music L.A. and Dean Guitars, the world’s first-ever film festival dedicated to heavy metal music will be taking place at the Downtown Independent Cinema in Los Angeles, California this coming March 31stthrough April 3rd, 2011.

 

Organizer and lifelong metalhead Samuel Douek shares an exciting addition to the HEAVY METAL FILM FESTIVAL’s inaugural line-up:

 

“We are proud to announce that Germany’s BLIND GUARDIAN have submitted a magical, one-of-a-kind, still-in-the-making film edited by Andreas Fiekers called ‘TRAVELERS AT THE EDGE OF TIME’ for a world premiere to debut exclusively at the Heavy Metal Film Festival in Downtown Los Angeles.  The new film speaks to the band’s evolution and how it led them into the symphonic saga of their latest album, 2010’s Billboard Top 200-charting At The Edge Of Time.TRAVELERS AT THE EDGE OF TIME’ will be screened at the HMFF’s special Closing Night event on Sunday at 9 p.m.”

 

TRAVELERS AT THE EDGE OF TIME (Editor: Andreas Fiekers) Germany 2011:  This documentary follows Germany’s legendary Power Metal band BLIND GUARDIAN through an unfinished cycle of their remarkable career up to now.  Showcasing an intimate insight throughout the massive amount of events the musicians had to face since Summer 2009, the film begins abruptly during the production for their breathtaking opus At The Edge Of Time when the band begins orchestra recordings at the Rudolfinum in Prague.  During the fragile act of creating real music, BLIND GUARDIAN are suddenly confronted with the virtual reality of a computer game called Sacred 2.  While tasting the sweetness of having accomplished one mission, another one immediately starts with dreary rehearsals in the “Twilight Hall” before the band heads off  to spread their mystical message to thousands of enthusiastic bards on another world tour.  We will meet an unmasked Hansi Kürsch, André Olbrich, Marcus Siepen, Frederik Ehmke, and their crew members through the many private on-the-road & behind-the-scenes encounters.  Fans will witness BLIND GUARDIAN take part in their never-ending quest for perfection beyond the musical aspects when cameras follow the band onto different stages from the first indoor shows to subsequent outdoor shows on the “Sacred World and Songs Divine Tour.”  Travelers At The Edge Of Time then takes on a new voyage when the group gets back to the studio and starts working on its lifetime project: the orchestral album.  Both completion of this film project and the touring cycle for the latest album are not yet complete, proving only one thing: There is no real beginning, nor there is a real ending…

In addition to the BLIND GUARDIAN film’s world premiere, “UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US” has been added to the midnight screening taking place on Saturday, April 2nd.

 

UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US (Aaron Aites & Audrey Ewell) USA 2009: Until The Light Takes Us tells the story of black metal. Part music scene and part cultural uprising, black metal rose to worldwide notoriety in the mid-nineties when a rash of suicides, murders, and church burnings accompanied the explosive artistic growth and output of a music scene that would forever redefine what heavy metal is and what it stands for to other musicians, artists and music fans worldwide. Until The Light Takes Us goes behind the highly sensationalized media reports of “Satanists running amok in Europe” to examine the complex and largely misunderstood principles and beliefs that led to this rebellion against both Christianity and modern culture.

To capture this on film, directors Aaron Aites and Audrey Ewell moved to Norway and lived with the musicians for several years, building relationships that allowed them to create a surprisingly intimate portrait of this violent, but ultimately misunderstood, movement. The result is a poignant, moving story that’s as much about the idea that reality is composed of whatever the most people believe, regardless of what’s actually true, as it is about a music scene that blazed a path of murder and arson across the northern sky.

 

Stay tuned for additions to the festival line-up, plus the announcement of the short films section.

Las Marimbas Del Infierno (Marimbas From Hell) by Julio Hernández Cordón will be opening the festival on Thursday evening, March 31st.

Best of 2010

January 3rd, 2011

Best of 2010

As always, the top albums are for releases from 2010 that are full albums (no EP’s or demos). They also have to be new studio albums for 2010, not re-recordings, re-releases, cover songs, or live material. Below the combined TOP 30 are links to each staff members personal "best of" lists which besides the top albums contains such things as best new band, best DVD/Blu-Ray, disappointments of 2010, greatest hopes for 2011, personal metal discovery of 2010, and various other metal-related categories. Enjoy!



The Top 30  Heavy Metal Albums of 2010

(Click the album cover to read our review.

If no review is available the link it to the band’s MySpace page.)

1. Accept – Blood of the Nations

ACCEPT

Wolf Hoffman’s reaction to the band’s #1 placement in our list was:

"Sensational!!! We are so happy about this reaction by the fans. This last year has been nothing short of phenomenal for Accept."

BLOOD OF THE NATIONS is a fantastic album, so fantastic that it very easily came out on top when we compiled our best of 2010 list! In the media, producer Andy Sneap said when he worked with the band he made them go back and listen to the 80’s albums, and it worked. Accept have delivered the album they needed to make. Accept reformed with a vocalist who is just as good as Udo Dirkschneider. Vocalist Mark Tornillo rages through the songs with power and charisma, without being a clone. Accept have proven to the world in 2010 they are still relevant, powerful, uncompromising and most of all entertaining. Welcome back!

2. Blind Guardian – At the Edge of Time 

Blind Guardian

Easily the best and strongest Blind Guardian album since NIGHTFALL IN MIDDLE-EARTH with a maximum of variety and everything that has turned these guys from Krefeld into what they are today: one of Germany’s most successful and influential metal bands. With AT THE EDGE OF TIME, Blind Guardian returned to the fold in total triumph. This is an album to be enjoyed for numerous repeat listens. Newer fans should eat it up, and older fans should be appeased with the band’s renewed emphasis on their thrashy roots.

3. Ratt– Infestation

Ratt

Ratt is Metal. Always have been and likely always will be. From their appearance on the very first Metal Massacre compilation in 1981 alongside the likes of Metallica, Malice, and Bitch, to the new 2010 album, Ratt have always been among the heaviest of the so-called "hair metal" bands. So despite what the revisionists may think, Ratt have a firm spot in the development and evolution of the Heavy Metal genre and have earned their spot in this year’s list. Sonically the Ratt Pack is back! The band had stated they wanted a real up-tempo record and distinctly aimed for the classic sound. They nailed it. It’s all there, the swagger and slight sneer of Pearcy voice, the fluid and fiery soloing of DeMartini’s axe-work, the complimentary work of Cavazo…it’s a beautiful thing to behold!

4. Triptykon – Eparistera Daimones

Triptykon

Thomas Gabriel Fischer (AKA Tom G. Warrior) has nothing to prove to anyone. As the principal architect behind Hellhammer and Celtic Frost, Fischer’s body of work is the reason that many bands exist today. Two years since Celtic Frost’s very public dissolution, Fischer could have easily opted to rest on his laurels and bask in the afterglow of his evil legacy, but nooooo. To the contrary, Fischer has assembled a new band and recorded an album of new material that’s arguably some of the best in his career. Triptykon is the band, EPARISTERA DAIMONES is the album, and yes – it’s as good as Fischer has promised it to be!

5. Melechesh –  The Epigenesis 

amon.jpg

Black/Death/Middle Eastern "Mesopotamian Metal" extremists made a big impact this year. Originally from IsraHELL and now based out of the Netherlands, the band has been around in some form since 1993. That Melechesh are able to maintain the album’s early momentum through to the record’s dying moments makes what they have achieved with THE EPIGENESIS that much more remarkable. Unlike so much of what passes for modern-day extremity, every one of this disc’s eleven tracks bristles with its own identity and design. It will demand a lot of attention – this definitely isn’t the record to whip out at your next kegger – but the rewards far outweigh the investment. Absolutely superb in every way.

6.  Helloween – 7 Sinners

Helloween

Helloween are very comfortable right now. They are back on a major label, the line-up has been stable for probably the longest stretch in the bands history, and they have fallen into a great pattern of releasing a studio album every couple of years (right around Halloween naturally). Relaxed, confident and mature the band have nothing to prove but instead of delivering a complacent record, the band have delivered the fastest, heaviest album of their career. It’s their 26th release over and 13th full-length studio album of all-new, original material. Lucky #13 for the band sees a crowning achievement with 13 killer cuts spread across the hour. Helloween have delivered a masterpiece. It will quickly silence all the fans who couldn’t stomach UNARMED from earlier this year.

7. OverKill – Ironbound

OverKill

The veteran New Jersey boys return with a compelling slab of unmistakeably old school thrash that is tinged with a fine mix of groove, progressiveness and melody that separates Overkill from the multitudes of carbon-copy thrashers out there. This is modern thrash the way it should be played: roots in the 80s but with its direction and ambition befitting a metal scene on the cusp of its 30-year anniversary. It’s a beautiful thing to behold: while most of their contemporaries have split up or sold out, Overkill are still doing their thing, updating and improving but never forgetting where they came from.

8.  Nevermore – The Obsidian Conspiracy

Nevermore

Five years – that’s how long Nevermore made us wait for a sequel to the still awe-inspiring THIS GODLESS ENDEAVOUR. By modern-day standards that’s an absolute eternity, the length of which only the likes of Slayer or Metallica could reasonably be expected to get away with. Regardless of delay, the album is a perfect example of heavy metal in its purest, most intelligent and provocative form. As always the band defies classification with elements of power, thrash, prog, blended together into a mixture that is uniquely Nevermore.

9. Sabaton – Coat of Arms

SABATON

Sweden’s war metallers, Sabaton, have been consistently moving to the forefront of the power metal movement in the last few years. COAT OF ARMS continues Sabaton’s fine tradition of power metal with bite. The band is in fine form throughout and do not disappoint. You listen to a Sabaton album for the pounding marches (“Uprising”) the fast assaults (“Midway”, “Screaming Eagles”), and the catchy hooks and choruses (every damn song!) and COAT OF ARMS has it all!

10. Halford – IV – Made of Metal

HALFORD

Finally! Halford was really overdue. Despite having a skeleton of a catalog, Halford really needed to put some meat on the bones of his solo career. MADE OF METAL is really only the third studio album of all new material in over 10 years. Sure the catalog looks impressive but in reality, live albums, demo albums, EP’s, digital only live albums and novelty Christmas albums are just filler. Halford needed to deliver the goods and we’re pleased to say he is still made of Metal. The album clocks in at a whopping 14 tracks at over an hour it is his longest solo album to date.

 

Number 11 to 20

11. Crazy Lixx – New Religion

Crazy Lixx
12. Iron Maiden – The Final Frontier Iron Maiden
13. Scorpions – Sting In The Tail Scorpions
14. Immolation – Majesty and Decay Immolation
 15. Avantasia – The Wicked Symphony / Angel Of Babylon Avantasia

17. Kylesa – Spiral Shadow Kylesa
18. Death Angel – Relentless Retribution Death Angel
19. Dimmu Borgir – Abrahadabra

Dimmu Borgir
20. Wuthering Heights – Salt Wuthering Heights


 

Number 21 to 30

21. Yngwie J. Malmsteen – Relentless

22. Danzig – Deth Red Sabaoth

23.
Black Label Society – Order of the Black

24. Reckless Love – Reckless Love

BLIND GUARDIAN with Holy Grail – Best Buy Theater, New York, NY November 20th, 2010

December 9th, 2010

BLIND GUARDIAN

with Holy Grail

Best Buy Theater – New York, NY

November 20th, 2010

Words and pictures by Kyle Moore, the Metal Magnus



Blind Guardian has an extremely important place in my personal metal pantheon. Their seminal album NIGHTFALL IN MIDDLE-EARTH blew my teenage mind into little tiny pieces that still have to re-collect themselves whenever I give that CD a spin. I went out of my way to see their live show in Venice, Italy almost eight years ago as they were touring in support of A NIGHT AT THE OPERA and like many other fans, observed that frontman Hansi Kursch doesn’t quite have the vocal gusto in concert that he does in a recording studio. They nonetheless gave a fine performance, and I looked forward to seeing them at some later date. As it happened, that later date came one night after covering Epica’s concert – fresh after spending 90 minutes of my previous evening fawning over Epica’s flawless siren Simone Simons, tonight I got to stare up the nostrils of some of power metal’s gnarliest-looking veterans.

Blind Guardian – North American tour dates confirmed

September 8th, 2010
BLIND GUARDIAN

BLIND GUARDIAN

Triumphantly returning to North American shores in support of the Billboard-charting new album At The Edge Of Time, we are pleased to announce the western hemisphere’s portion of the Sacred Worlds And Songs Divine 2010 World Tour, commencing on November 19th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and concluding on December 22nd in West Springfield, Virginia.  Support acts are California’s Holy Grail and Florida’s Seven Kingdoms.

Hansi checks in from the secret Blind Guardian bunker about the upcoming trek:

“Christmas will be a little earlier this year, ‘cause The Guardian is coming to town in November and December!  The band is really excited to announce this upcoming tour.  Finally, we will get the chance to preach our Sacred Words and play our Songs Divine somewhere near your neighborhood.  We have prepared a nice package of music and bands for our Northern American followers.  Our friends from Holy Grail and Seven Kingdoms will join us on this glorious mission and will have their part in these magical nights to come.  Both bands are underground now, but I can feel that the future is theirs. They really carry the spirit of a new American Power Metal generation.  Touring the U.S. and Canada does always means a tremendous amount of fun, so we are really anxious to see if the people in Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, and Albuquerque – where we have not played before – can scream as loud as their brothers and sisters in New York, Quebec, Toronto, or Hollywood.  We’ll soon find out when we meet you at the edge of time.

“Of course, we have to arrange some time in between playing and traveling for some Christmas gift shopping.  I am sure I will find plenty of cool Star Wars action figures and I am already aware of some great Christmas shops near Washington where I will be able to get some great atypical Christmas tree ornaments.  Strange worlds we are living in: The funniest ones sometimes have been produced in Germany, where you can’t  get them in stores, so the U.S./Canada trip definitely pays off.

“As for books: Last time we ended up in Portland for a day, and whether I’ll make it to Powell’s (City of) Books, you never know.  All in all, I have far too many books which I  have not yet read, but I am constantly working on it.  Since I am getting older and the saying is: “The older you get, the less sleep you need,” I am very optimistic I will manage to read them all when the nights are getting shorter.”
