Some news for the future album

In a recent interview with German site Musik Reviews, Hansi brought some news about plans for the next album:

  • The first song is called "Encrypted Times", it's a very speed metal song
  • Another one is called "The Ocean" and contain orchestral elements
  • The rest of the songs are typical Blind Guardian songs and some kind of Irish Folk Speed Metal
  • The new album is planned to be released middle or end 2014
  • Within 12 months after it the orchestra album must follow

And others bulk:

  • Working on A Traveler's Guide To Space And Time took 8-9 month, more than the band expected (8 weeks)
  • There are two unfinished songs of Nightfall In Middle-Earth era, but still some work on these, if they had known that it took them 8-9 month to work on the box they would have added these in this one
  • Soon there will be a cover version of a Blind Guardian song by some famous metal band of a different genre, Hansi will take part in it
  • Maybe they'll working with Andreas Marschall again, if he's still in business

t is not important enough to be in the news but interesting enough to be posted here, Hansi was asked about best and worst song of each album, here the results:

Best || Worst
- Battalions Of Fear: Majesty || Battalions Of Fear
- Follow The Blind: Banish From Sanctuary || Hall Of The King
- Tales From The Twilight World: Lost In The Twillight Hall || Run For The Night / Weird Dreams (Hansi adds: there are no bad songs on Tales From The Twilight World)
- Somewhere Far Beyond: Somewhere Far Beyond || One of the cover songs, maybe Theatre Of Pain
- Imaginations From The Other Side Imaginations From The Other Side || Another Holy War
- Nightfall In Middle-Earth: Time Stands Still (At The Iron Hill) || When Sorrow Sang (but Hansi is struggling with the answer)
- A Night At The Opera: And Then There Was Silence || Sadly Sings Destiny
- A Twist In The Myth: Otherland || Lionheart
- At The Edge Of Time: Wheel Of Time || Valkyries
