Some news of Blind Guardian ...

The band is on tour, nothing really exciting is revealed at this time; Facebook's addicts can track their dates in real time via the group page but otherwise it's dead calm!

However, various interviews are given here and there and we'll relay them here even though there is nothing really new in these:

Hansi interviewed by Metal Assault:

Frederik interviewed by X-Plosive Metal

Regarding the site, the videography has been finally updated with information about A Voice In The Dark.

Another interview of Hansi but in german this one Wink (for the webzine More-Metal.com): youtube.com/watch?v=k7YBgT5EqFA

If anyone can translate it or just explain the general ideas, he can post them here Razz Wink

One member of the official forum confirms that there is nothing new in this interview:
- The orchestra project is nearly finished, just some orchestra recording sessions and Hansi's voice recording are missing. It's done when it is done; Hansi says:" It can happen in 6 month or 18, it's finished when it's finished"
- Nothing is sure for a live album or DVD.
- Nothing is planned so far for the band's 25th anniversary, confusion about exact year Biggrin

Thanks to him for this translation Smile

A new video interview but it seems that the girl doesn't know much about the band ... Hansi remains courteous and answered questions asked repeatedly, so nothing much really new here: youtube.com/watch?v=i4ggYlRVk5s

That's for the American webzine Bay Area Rocks Wink

Written interview this time for the webzine 69 Faces Of Rock, but I doubt the seriousness of this zine ... Write "Wheel of Time" "We Love Time" and "And The Story Ends" "When The Story Ends" is limited ... Especially as Wheel Of Time is spelled correctly other times!

Here's the link anyway even if I do not see anything new in this interview: 69facesofrock.com/blind_guardian_interview.html

A lengthy interview (15 minutes) of Oliver Holzwarth, bassist of the band since 1997.
He tells us about the current tour, his arrival in the group in 1997 of his love for bass Sandberg and his work with his brother Alex:
