Hansi signs in! - 2006-05-16

2006-05-16 - BLIND GUARDIAN frontman Hansi K&uuml;rsch has posted the following message on the official BG web site:<br><br>&quot;Time to break the silence, time to say hello. As you all most probably know, we have finished the album some days ago and started doing some first shows already. It has been a blast to be back on stage again and do these small shows in Rijssen and Vosseljaar. We appreciate the kindness and the support of the people there and enjoyed the club atmosphere a lot. Istanbul was a great experience and 'The Bard's Song' sung by more than 2,000 Turkish fans was nothing but spectacular.<br><br>Even though the secret is revealed already, I would like to point out one more time the album is entitled A Twist in the Myth, and that's just because I unfortunately could not find allies for my most favorite album title suggestion, A Day At The Races. : ) With this album, I think, we have widened the range of the BLIND GUARDIAN universe more than we have ever done before. In terms of quality, we had a very good feeling during the whole recording session. But I nevertheless have to admit that the songs did make a gigantic step during the last days of recording and mixing. 'The Edge' and 'In Search Of The Lionheart' certainly will achieve absolute cult status within a very short amount of time. 'Skalds and Shadows' will prove its longevity in numerous live concerts. We are most excited about what your reaction to 'Another Stranger Me' &#8212; an aggressive and powerful heavy rocker &#8212; will be. The song has great potential.<br><br>Marcus and I composed a number called 'All the King's Horses,' which will be released on the Japanese version of A Twist in the Myth and on a single we are going to release in the beginning of 2007. It is a great song which will set emotions free, I am sure.<br><br>Some of the new songs will be presented on the road when we will start touring in September. We will use the summer break to check out which songs will fit in best to the program. Everything and everyone is in pretty good shape. All preparations for the fall tour are on schedule and the interest in tickets for the tour is really high. It pretty much looks like there are even more fans willing to see us than in 2002 which was the most successful tour we have done up to now. One more time we would like to thank you for your patience and can't wait to hear and see your reaction to the new songs. As soon as there are some download samples, we will let you know. Your endurance will be rewarded.&quot;<br><br>BLIND GUARDIAN will be shooting a video later this month for the track &quot;Another Stranger Me.&quot; The upcoming video will be be the first to feature new drummer Frederik Ehmke, who replaced Thomen Stauch in 2005.<br><br>The track listing for A Twist in the Myth - due out in North America in September 2006 - is as follows:<br><br>01. This Will Never End (5:07) <br>02. Otherland (5:14) <br>03. Turn the Page (4:16) <br>04. Fly (5:43) <br>05. Carry the Blessed Home (4:03) <br>06. Another Stranger Me (4:36) <br>07. Straight through the Mirror (5:48) <br>08. Lionheart (4:15) <br>09. Skalds and Shadows (3:13) <br>10. The Edge (4:27) <br>11. The New Order (4:49)<br><br>View album artwork at <a href="http://www.blind-guardian.com/new_version/images/albums/a_twist_in_the_myth.jpg" target="_blank">this</a> location!<br><br>BLIND GUARDIAN's &quot;Fly&quot; single was released on April 18th and contained two exclusive tracks: an acoustic version of &quot;Skalds and Shadows&quot; and a cover of the Iron Butterfly classic &quot;In A Gadda Da Vida.&quot; <br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=714"><u>BLIND GUARDIAN</u></a>&quot;
