Blind Guardian is now streaming their Cyberpunk-inspired music video for the single "Life Beyond The Spheres" off their latest record The God Machine. Is there a slight cheese factor to the video? Of course. Is it incredibly fun with a fantastic Blind Guardian song behind it? Absolutely, and you're going to be way into it. We sure as hell are.
"I'm a big supporter of innovation, to bring the whole music genre forward to something else. Maybe even find a new something that wasn't there before, I think with 'Life Beyond the Spheres,' I knew I wanted to go somewhere in the soundtrack direction," said guitarist André Olbrich.
"At that time, I was playing cyberpunk, so my inspiration was a little bit cyberpunkish. I tried to bring in a metal soundtrack in a cyberpunk direction, more spacey than we ever did before. Hansi grabbed that feeling and I think now we have a song we never did before, not even close to that kind of genre. I like that, that is a very innovative song, I'm proud of this too."
"'Life Beyond the Spheres' leads us to spaces unknown and places where no man has gone before," added vocalist Hansi Kürsch. "It certainly delivers music that is not from this world. There is always hope. This is what the song means to me."
