BLIND GUARDIAN Streams Re-Recorded Version Of "The Quest For Tanelorn"

A whole re-recorded version of Somewhere Far Beyond is coming.

Blind Guardian has just announced a re-recorded version of their 1992 record Somewhere Far Beyond due out August 2, and is now streaming "The Quest For Tanelorn (Revisited)". Somewhere Far Beyond Revisited was recorded throughout 2022 and 2023, and so far seems like a nice update to a record laid to tape over 30 years ago.

"The original idea wasn't to do a re-recording," said Blind Guardian mastermind Hansi Kürsch. "When rehearsing for the anniversary gigs, corona hit and we couldn't be certain that those shows would take place. We still wanted to celebrate the anniversary of the album and if we wouldn't be able to include a live version, we initially thought we could at least record the rehearsals.

Kürsch added: "We tried to recapture what we did in 1992 but compensate youth with skillful experience, though in a hungry way. We never discussed any major changes but with over 30 years of experience, and our current line-up, those ingredients already add a new flavor to it."

Somewhere Far Beyond Revisited will be released as a Limited Edition 3 Disc Digipak which contains an additional 2022 live version of the entire album on a separate CD and a Blu-Ray disc with the anniversary sets at Rock Hard Festival and Hellfest 2022. Vinyl versions and regular ol' CD versions are also available for pre-order here.
