Metal’s most epic storytellers BLIND GUARDIAN have just posted the first single from their forthcoming album Beyond The Red Mirror online. Listen to ‘Twilight Of the Gods’ on YouTube:
“It is impossible for us to choose a song that represents the whole album. The upcoming single needs to be seen as an appetizer- ‘Twilight Of The Gods’ is perfect, because it reveals incredible dynamic and contains great melody lines”, shares BLIND GUARDIAN vocalist & lyricist Hansi Kürsch.
Watch the first album trailer here:
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, 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.
Beyond The Red Mirror will be out in the UK on the 2nd of Feb 2015 via Nuclear Blast.
