New Live Release “Live Beyond The Spheres” Announced By Blind Guardian

There’s some big news today for Blind Guardian: the progressive power metal pioneers are proud to announce the release of a new 3CD package/4LP package entitled “Live Beyond The Spheres”! The release will include material recorded from various shows during the European tour in 2015 – and it will contain old classics, new tracks as well as songs that are played very rarely live. “Live Beyond The Spheres’ is scheduled to be released on July 7th via Nuclear Blast as a 3CD and 4LP Box.

Vocalist Hansi Kürsch spoke about the difficulties in creating such an ambitious album: “In general, I would say that we’ve had a really good run throughout this tour and that nearly every show was perfect. But at the end of the day, after every one of us had checked through every single song and concert of those 30 shows again and again, there was only something like two or three versions of each song that were suitable to be used for an album. We then had to decide between those final versions; which one the most impressive one was. This was a nearly endless task!”

But as we all know, Blind Guardian stands for perfectionism in every way: “The final songs chosen contain such an energy, that tiny mistakes appeared to be completely unimportant. As soon as you listen to the songs, you will know what I mean, they feel completely alive”.

But in the end, the effort was all worth it. Hansi sums up: “There is always something happening at each show, let’s call it ‘MAGIC’, that gives us all a shiver up our spine. We are really satisfied when people sing with us, have a good time and go back home happy.”
