Blind Guardian is about to have a pretty substantial 2019. The band just announced their long-awaited orchestral record Legacy of the Dark Lands, which guitarist André Olbrich and singer Hansi Kürsch have been talking about doing for quite some time. This is also Blind Guardian's first record in four years, which should be more than enough to get everyone excited.
“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.”
Alongside the new record will be a prequel novel from author Markus Heitz called Die Dunklen Lande. You can watch a trailer for the record below and pre-order both the book and the record here.
