New Single “Twilight Of The Gods” Announced By Blind Guardian

The wait is over and Blind Guardian is back. The world’s most popular fantasy metal band announced the impending release of the new song “Twilight of the Gods,” the first single from the long-awaited new album, which will be unleashed December 5th via Nuclear Blast Records, with a full length album (yet untitled) to follow in January 2015.

“Twilight of the Gods” is the first creation of the Krefeld, Germany based band in more than four years. Vocalist Hansi Kürsch comments: “this song is a statement about Blind Guardian. The pure definition of all that the band stands for: it is innovative, melodic and brutal.”

“Twilight of the Gods” is described as a “neck breaker” in the true tradition of Blind Guardian and as Kürsch continues, one “that will captivate you with the most epic and catchy chorus we’ve ever written.”

Lyrically, “Twilight of the Gods” is about the deities’ waning power; no such times are in sight for the band. The single will be released in three formats (including digital release):

CD digipack with three tracks:

1. Twilight of the Gods
2. Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) – Live in Wacken 2011
3. The Bard’s Song (In the Forest) – Live in Wacken 2011

7? Vinyl:

Side A: Twilight of the Gods
Side B: Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) – Live in Wacken 2011

Pre-orders can be made at this location.
