BLIND GUARDIAN: ‘Mirror Mirror’ Video from New Live Record

Power Metal elites, BLIND GUARDIAN, has announced the release of their first live record in 14 years.

Guitarist André Olbrich explains the three major reasons why they feel the time is right for a new live record: “We’ve had a new rhythm section in the band – Frederik (Ehmke) and Barend (Corbois) – for a couple of years now. Our interaction improved a lot by their joining and our songs developed a better groove and became more dynamic.

The appearance of digital amp profilers and digital recording techniques also made it possible to create a fairly similar sonic image in different venues and to fulfill our image of what a perfect live album should be.

Last but not least; we released three studio albums since our previous live album, and we didn’t have any live recordings from our relatively current studio material. By compiling a 3-disc package, we were able to create a very extensive and varied set list to reflect our 30-year career with an optimal performances.”

Live Beyond The Spheres will be a 22-song package from Nuclear Blast, which will include performances of “The Bard’s Song (In The Forest),” “Valhalla,” as well as rare treats like “And Then There Was Silence.”

Olbrich said, “We compiled one ‘show out of the best tracks from more than 40 live performances, recorded during our European tour in 2015. That’s how we pinned down the most beautiful and atmospheric moments on this medium.”

Pre-orders are now available for digital and disc.
