Blind Guardian - Twilight Of The Gods

NOT A Bathory tribute album



Quote:
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

“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!

Twilight of the Gods will be available in three formats.

CD digipack with three tracks:

Twilight of the Gods
Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) – Live in Wacken 2011
The Bard’s Song (In the Forest) – Live in Wacken 2011

7″ Vinyl:

Side A: Twilight of the Gods
Side B: Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) – Live in Wacken 2011

Digital:

Twilight of the Gods

I thought it was Bling Bling Guardian?


But anyways, I am super excited about this. Hopefully this leads to a nice, sexy world tour in 2015 with some killer support acts.

Man, that's too cool of artwork to waste on a single.


What MPF said though, hoping for a 2015 tour.

YEAH BITCH.

I can't believe it's been four years since their last run in the states. That was such an awesome tour to keep up with. A handful of songs were borderline random every night and the best crowds got Majesty. I need to reignite my old Blind Guardian obsession once more.

Beyond the Red Mirror will be the title of the highly-anticipated tenth studio album by Germany’s favorite sons and metal’s most epic storytellers Blind Guardian. Prepare to have your senses overwhelmed.




Four-and-a-half years in the making, the follow-up to 2010’s At the Edge of Time (which debuted at #2 on the German album charts and at #1 on the American Billboard Heatseekers chart & #108 on the American Billboard Top 200 Albums chart) is scheduled for release in Europe on January 30, 2015 and February 3, 2015 in North America.

Recorded at Twilight Hall Studio in Grefrath, Germany and produced by Charlie Bauerfeind (Saxon, Hammerfall, Helloween), Beyond the Red Mirror showcases Blind Guardian’s long-awaited collaborative work with three different classical choirs: one from the Czech Republic (Prague), one from Hungary (Budapest), and one from the United States (Boston). Two grand orchestras – each featuring 90 musicians – also lend their brilliant talents to the new recordings with absolutely spellbinding results.

Transporting listeners via a mysteriously powerful red mirror into an otherworldly dimension that includes tyrants, gods, and the Holy Grail, the ten songs comprisingBeyond the Red Mirror’s story lines revolve around the young protagonist we first met twenty years ago in the 1995 tracks “Bright Eyes” and “And the Story Ends”.

“A story between science fiction and fantasy,” explains Blind Guardian vocalist & lyricist Hansi Kürsch. “The story begins with our 1995 album, Imaginations from the Other Side. The two worlds described therein have changed dramatically for the worse since then. While there used to be several passages between the worlds, there is only one gate left now: The Red Mirror. It has to be found at any cost.”

Asked to describe the band’s guiding principles for the creation of this new release, Blind Guardian guitarist André Olbrich shares: “We want to surprise and impress with our music. Nowadays, music tends to be arbitrary and predictable. But we want to keep developing our music.”

Opening with a tidal wave of surging emotion courtesy of a spine-tingling choir Beyond the Red Mirror unleashes its first gem, “The Ninth Wave”, a consciousness-expanding palette of landscapes and moods bearing the message of an urgent mission still seeking resolution. Closing with an explosion of heroic harmonies & choral glories with a nine-and-a-half minute, self-contained saga “Grand Parade” (called “the best song we have ever written” by Olbrich), the grandiose, uplifting, and ingenious storytelling in Beyond the Red Mirroris guaranteed to leave you breathless.

Come 2015, you will soon experience why Blind Guardian are so influential in their genre and without equal in the pantheon of heavy metal music.

Featuring artwork by long-time collaborator Felipe Machado, Beyond the Red Mirror will be available in the following formats:
  • Jewel Case (10 songs)
  • Limited Edition Digi-Pack (11 songs)
  • Double LP gatefold vinyl
  • Earbook (12 songs plus illustrations, photos, and liner notes)
  • NB-Mailorder-Earbook (12 songs plus illustrations, photos, liner notes + bonus 10’’)

  8. The Throne
  9. Sacred Mind
  10. Miracle Machine
  11. Grand Parade
  12. Doom (Bonus track on Earbook version)
Hansi calls the album’s first single, “Twilight Of The Gods,” “a neck breaker… the pure definition of all that the band stands for: it is innovative, melodic and brutal.” The mini-CD single includes two live tracks recorded at 2011’s Wacken Open Air festival in Germany and can be pre-ordered as a digi-pack or in white, blue, green or black vinyl from this location: http://smarturl.it/BLIND-GUARDIAN-Gods
