BLIND GUARDIAN: 3rd & 4th ALBUM TRAILERS RELEASED

BLIND GUARDIAN: 3rd & 4th ALBUM TRAILERS - 2015-01-05

2015-01-05 - With holiday festivities taking place around the world for the past two weeks, this is just a friendly update on what’s been going on in the BLIND GUARDIAN universe.

The third & fourth album trailers for the band‘s highly-anticipated tenth studio release, Beyond The Red Mirror are available for viewing on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLB4brr7vf-P7zAQiZzneWk1WUjPjVVioV.

“I need two thirds of a song before I can really start designing my guitar solos,” shares BLIND GUARDIAN guitarist André Olbrich. “There must be a clear idea of the song’s character, prior to beginning its creation. A solo reflects the most important elements of a song, and it can be seen as a song within a song. The key point to the solos on this album is that they sound very organic and have a great flow. In terms of sound, we were able to keep our stylistic integrity yet we delivered something incredibly new and dark-vibed. It became obvious that, on the last album [2010’s At The Edge Of Time], we took a step in the right direction with songs like ‘Sacred Worlds’ and ‘Wheel Of Time.’ Our kind of BLIND GUARDIAN metal blended together perfectly with a grand orchestra.”

Featuring artwork by long-time collaborator Felipe Machado, Beyond The Red Mirror is due out in North America on February 3rd, 2015 and can be pre-ordered in the following formats from the new album’s landing page: http://smarturl.it/BLIND-GUARDIANMirror

08. The Throne
09. Sacred Mind
10. Miracle Machine
11. Grand Parade

Four-and-a-half years in the making, Beyond The Red Mirror was recorded at Twilight Hall Studio in Grefrath, Germany and produced by Charlie Bauerfeind (SAXON, HAMMERFALL, HELLOWEEN). The album’s spellbinding tracks showcase BLIND GUARDIAN’s long-awaited collaborative work with three different classical choirs from Prague, Budapest, and Boston, plus two grand orchestras - each featuring 90 musicians. An endeavour demanding that attention be paid to the lyrics as much as to the music, Beyond The Red Mirror is a desperate search for truth, an exploration of the relativities of good and evil, a testimony of the consequences of lost opportunities, a glimpse into a distant universe’s dystopian society, and a story about a prophecy, a promise of revolution, a plot for revenge, and a miracle machine with powers far beyond what mere mortals could have dreamed possible.

BLIND GUARDIAN will be performing on this year’s 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise in January 2015 before launching their headlining tour through nine European countries this upcoming April and May. A very special hometown show at the Mitsubishi Electric Halle in Düsseldorf, Germany will take place on April 25th; four dates in the Russian Federation are planned for June.

Tour dates & pre-sale ticket links are available on the band’s official Facebook page.
