New version of The Bard's Song (In The Forest)

Remember April, following the tsunami that struck Japan, EMI Music launched a program to help out victims (Some news ...). The group was offered an exclusive meeting for two in their own studio to re-record "The Bard's Song (In The Forest)".

David McGregor and Martin Machado are the winners of this auction and they have purchased this unique experience for 1,317.42 € ($1,876.54) and this is the last month they were welcomed by the group in the famous Twilight Hall Studios.

During the session McGregor directed the members of Blind Guardian, giving them exact instructions on how the new version of this 19-year classic should sound. In addition, the fans sang along and laid down the bass parts on the song.

Video footage of the studio session can now be seen below (courtesy of the German edition of Metal Hammer magazine):
