BLIND GUARDIAN TWILIGHT ORCHESTRA - unveil fourth album trailer talking about the speakers' recordings!

BLIND GUARDIAN TWILIGHT ORCHESTRA - Trailer! - 2019-10-24

2019-10-24 - Promising to be one of the most ambitious projects in metal history, BLIND GUARDIAN's upcoming release will be well worth the wait. The idea of recording an orchestral album originally formed in the minds of the two leading lights of the BLIND GUARDIAN universe - guitarist André Olbrich and singer Hansi Kürsch - during the 1990's when BLIND GUARDIAN started to use orchestral elements to enhance their opulent sound. The monumental project started to take shape over recent years, and mirroring its epic sound cascades, the lyrical concept was developed. To create the concept, André and Hansi worked alongside German bestselling author Markus Heitz, whose latest novel »Die dunklen Lande« was released on March 1st, 2019. The book is set in 1629 and contains the prequel to BLIND GUARDIAN TWILIGHT ORCHESTRA's opus »Legacy Of The Dark Lands,« which will be out on November 8th, 2019.

Today, the band has released the fourth album trailer unveiling details about the recording process of the speakers' voices. Watch the clip here: https://youtu.be/KqbjNhr7RKs


Hansi states: "Sometimes history literally repeats itself. And sometimes this even is a good thing. Like in our case. Finally after more or less 21 years, it had been a big honor for me to get the opportunity to collaborate with my friends Douglas Fielding (Sauron on „NiME“) and Norman Eshley (Morgoth on NiME) for the narration parts of the new album at Air Edel Studio in London one more time. This time the two of them joined forces with some of their friends to make this an even more impressive piece of narration than „NiME“ already was. What can I say? Mission accomplished, I had a great blast in recording this bunch of amazing people. It is always an absolute pleasure to work with professionals, especially when it turns out, that these professionals are the nicest people you can imagine. To me the whole session has been one of the absolute peak points throughout the whole production. We dedicate this episode for "Legacy of the Dark Lands" to Douglas Fielding who passed away on June 25. Farewell my friend".
