The orchestral project concept!
The news came a few days ago, the concept for the future orchestral album of Blind Guardian was unveiled.
Markus Heitz, here is the name of the man who will be the inspiration for this project. For many of you this name doesn't mean much but in Germany this man has earned a solid reputation in the world of Fantasy. The group will be inspired by "Righteous Wrath", the first part of his new trilogy "Legends Of The Albae".
"I have been really amazed by several of his books over the last years but was finally and completely convinced about him being the perfect choice for our project by "Gerechter Zorn" ("Righteous Wrath") - the first part of his newest trilogy, "Die Legenden der Albae" ("Legends Of The Albae")." says Hansi.
This cooperation should keep the group busy on the project until at least 2013 (which report the release of the project to one year at least because we talked about 2012 before this news). Cooperation facilitated by the fact that Markus has grown up with the band's music in the ears in the 80's and 90's.
We will keep you updated and for those who would read the entire message from Hansi, here's the link: Harbinger of great things to come.
