Some news of the band!
During their journey in Serbia to film the video of A Voice In The Dark (Filming A Voice In The Dark), Blind Guardian has been interviewed by the Serbian site Metal Sound and it's Hansi who answered their question. We learn more about the inspirations of some songs:
- The group chose A Voice In The Dark as single because it's a very speed song, very "Blind Guardian" and with a catchy chorus.
- Hansi was inspired by the saga of "A Song Of Ice And Fire" by George R.R. Martin to write A Voice In The Dark.
- "The Wheel Of Time" by Robert Jordan was the inspiration for Hansi to write Ride Into Obsession and Wheel Of Time.
- Wheel Of Time is the favorite song of Hansi on At The Edge Of Time.
