Even the Harry Potter book covers are fucking metal in Sweden.
So I know I haven’t posted in a while, but there’s a very good explanation for that:
Blind Guardian is on hiatus at the moment.
After a lengthy tour supporting their brilliant new album, the Bards are taking some well deserved rest before going back to work in the studio.
According to a statement by Hansi, the last post on their site in some time, the band will not be touring again until at least 2014 so that they can record a new album and possibly finish the long anticipated orchestral project.
I will update as soon as I hear any more news from the band.
Marcus Siepen will be joining fellow Blind Guardian member Frederik Ehmke with Sinbreed at ProgPower USA XIII.
Is out today! Go pick up your copy today and celebrate 25 glorious years of Blind Guardian. Your first listen should definitely be the re-recording of And Then There Was Silence.
Sorry for the lack of posting lately. This is largely due to the new semester starting up. Sadly, I am no longer on holiday and can’t always post as often as I like. I hope to continue the discography cycle soon, I just need to find the time to sit down and organize it all in my queue. That being said, hope you’re all doing well. And don’t forget, Memories of a Time to Come comes out in 2 days!
