BLIND GUARDIAN REVEALS FIFTH ALBUM TRAILER FOR 'BEYOND THE RED MIRROR'
Metal’s most epic storytellers BLIND GUARDIAN are set to release their forthcoming album 'Beyond The Red Mirror' on the 2nd of Feb 2015. Until then the band will be posting a series of trailers about the making of the album online. Today sees the release of the fifth trailer, which details what is was like to work with an orchestra on the new album.
Four-and-a-half years in the making, Beyond The Red Mirror was recorded at Twilight Hall Studio in Grefrath, Germany and produced by Charlie Bauerfeind (SAXON, HAMMERFALL, HELLOWEEN). The album’s spellbinding tracks showcase BLIND GUARDIAN’s long-awaited collaborative work with three different classical choirs from Prague, Budapest and Boston, plus two grand orchestras - each featuring 90 musicians! An endeavour demanding that attention be paid to the lyrics as much as to the music, Beyond The Red Mirror is a desperate search for truth, an exploration of the relativities of good and evil, a testimony of the consequences of lost opportunities, a glimpse into a distant universe’s dystopian society, a story about a prophecy, a promise of revolution, a plot for revenge and a miracle machine with powers far beyond what mere mortals could have dreamed possible.
Beyond The Red Mirror will be out in the UK on the 2nd of Feb 2015 via Nuclear Blast.
The album track list reads as follows:
01. Ninth Wave 02. Twilight Of The Gods 03. Prophecies 04. At The Edge Of Time 05. Ashes Of Eternity 06. Distant Memories (bonus track on limited editions + vinyl) 07. Holy Grail 08. The Throne 09. Sacred Mind 10. Miracle Machine 11. Grand Parade
BLIND GUARDIAN will be performing on this year’s 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise in January 2015 before launching their headlining tour across nine European countries in April and May 2015. They will be hitting the stage at The Forum in London on the 12th of April.
