BLIND GUARDIAN Leader HANSI KÜRSCH Talks “Legacy Of The Dark Lands” Album: “I Feel Relieved And Proud It, And It Was a Natural Step for BLIND GUARDIAN to Record an Album Like That”
Never a band to rest on their laurels, Blind Guardian have always moved forward and changed their sound from time to time. From their speed metal beginnings, to absorbing thrash influences in subsequent releases, and finally establishing themselves as power metal ambassadors, there was always something new with every release. For epic performances at Wacken Open Air and other festivals up to hosting their own Blind Guardian Open Air, their fan base seems to grow at every release. 2019 brings another exploration of these Germans, and one that took almost 23 years to be completed: a purely orchestral album, the monumental “Legacy of the Dark Lands”. Released under the moniker Blind Guardian Twilight Orchestra, this project will open another door to the seemingly endless well of creativity of the band. Discussions about a fully orchestral album date back to 1996/1997, so the sense of accomplishment is palpable throughout the tracks of this concept piece. ” Legacy Or The Dark Lands” Album Artwork Sonic Perspectives collaborator Rodrigo Altaf had the chance to speak to with Blind Guardian‘s singer Hansi Kürsch to discuss the new album, the concept behind it, the plans on how to present it live, and much more!
