[News] Blind Guardian Twilight Orchestra new single and video teaser

One of the most ambitious projects in the history of Metal promises to be the next Blind Guardian release. The idea of ​​recording a record with orchestral parts was born already in the 90s in the mind of the guitarist Andrè Olbrich and the singer Hansi Kürsch. This project relies on the collaboration of the bestselling German writer Markus Heitz, whose latest novel “Die Dunklen Lande“, published March 1, 2019. The book is set in 1629 and contains the prequel to Blind Guardian Twilight Orchestra opus “Legacy Of The Dark Land“, which will be released on November 8, 2019. To give a taste of what will be, the band released the single”Point Of No return“, in the form of lyric video.

Hansi states: “Finally, after ages of talking about it, it is time to unleash the beast. We have heard your pleas and here it is, a first glimpse of what Legacy Of The Dark Lands is about. We have reached the Point Of No Return and there for sure will be no taking back. Legacy Of The Dark Lands will be released on November 8, 2019. Enjoy listening to the first single of this wonderful album. Point Of No Return is a very vivid song and already gives you a very good insight of what to expect from the upcoming release. The song has it all, it is intense, very melodious and epic at the same time. Don’t forget to check out the lyric video for Point Of No Return. But now enjoy this first short trip to the Dark Lands. Still, this is just the beginning. Markus is a great story teller; with Die Dunklen Lande, he created the perfect setting and with the mysterious Nicolas mysterious Nicolas the perfect character for our complex works. His inventiveness seems to be almost infinite. Absolutely impressive and very inspiring. It’s incredible that after 20 years we can actually finish this really exciting project. I am so happy and more than satisfied with it. Every single track unveils spectacular worlds and tells its very own story. With this album, our biggest creative dream finally becomes reality.”
