BLIND GUARDIAN TWILIGHT ORCHESTRA -"Legacy Of The Dark Lands" Out Now, release a music video for "War Feeds War"!

BLIND GUARDIAN TWILIGHT ORCHESTRA - Out Now! - 2019-11-08

2019-11-08 - The most ambitious project of metal history of BLIND GUARDIAN is out today: "Legacy Of The Dark Lands" hits the record stores! To celebrate the release, the band has released an official video for "War Feeds War". 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.

Hansi about the video:
"Time to witness our journey through the Dark Lands. „War Feeds War“ gives you an idea about whom we encountered and what we „beheld" during our short, but somehow very unpleasant stay. Note: the riders are amongst us! I am glad we made it back, safely, for today’s release of „Legacy of the Dark Lands“. We hope you enjoy this fantastic album and this glorious video. We had great fun doing it! Now go and get your copy."

"It's incredible, that after 20 years we can actually finish this really exciting project. I am so happy and more than satisfied with it. Every single track unveils spectacular worlds and tells its very own story. With this album our biggest creative dream finally becomes reality," says frontman/singer Hansi Kürsch whose favourite author was equally excited about the collaboration: "It's really crazy: As pen & paper role-players we used to listen to BLIND GUARDIAN whilst playing. And years later I get to work together with the band, which was incredible. It's amazing, the things that can happen sometimes," Markus Heitz remembers. "Of course, I immediately agreed to join! This creative collaboration is very special for me."

The two protagonists have actively cultivated their creative exchange over the last five years. "Markus is a great story teller; with »Die dunklen Lande« he created the perfect setting and with the mysterious Nicolas, the perfect character for our complex works. His inventiveness seems to be almost infinite. Absolutely impressive and very inspiring,” praises Hansi Kürsch regarding the fruitful cooperation with the highly renowned fantasy author.

Both sides tell in their own way the story of the mercenary Nicolas and his involvement in the Thirty Years' War. Author Markus Heitz starts the story off in his book and BLIND GUARDIAN follow suit with »Legacy Of The Dark Lands.« What is the secret surrounding Nicolas? Will he be able to cast off the chains of war and how will his loved ones fare? On »Legacy Of The Dark Lands« via BLIND GUARDIAN TWILIGHT ORCHESTRA, André Olbrich and Hansi Kürsch fulfill their long-time wish of emphasizing imposing choral singing and classical orchestral arrangements. It promises to be an opus unlike any other that the German quartet has ever released, or rather: an opus, as has never been heard ever before.
