Summary:

Beyond The Red Mirror is the tenth studio album of the band and a concept album, following of Bright Eyes and And The Story Ends. The young protagonist we first met twenty years ago became a man and realize he made the wrong choices; the two worlds described therein have changed dramatically for the worse since then. While there used to be several passages between the worlds, there is only one gate left now: The Red Mirror. It has to be found at any cost!
The means used by the group for this album are simply titanic; three professional choirs, two orchestras, more than 180 musicians! Introducing the new Blind Guardian that announced by At The Edge Of Time and the one which we will now expect on the next albums, especially the one orchestral.
Some bonus tracks are avaible: Distant Memories come in sixth on the digibook and Doom is in last position of the earbook.
