BLIND GUARDIAN have announced a new album!
Title THE GOD MACHINEGerman power metal legends’ eleventh studio album follows 2019’s The Legacy of the Dark Landsand is slated for release in September this year via Nuclear Explosion Records.
Along with the announcement of the new album, the band shared a new music video for the single. Blood of elveswhich follows the release of Secrets of the American Gods back in March.
Speaking of the new song, the singer Hansi Kursch comments, “Blood of the Elves features quite a heavy side that the hardcore fan of BLIND GUARDIAN I hope it will be good. More than good, I guess. Instrumentally, the track has a sort of early ’90s appeal that blends well with the vocal parts of the opera/twist era, and catapults both eras into a new era for the band. A perfect hybrid. The chorus has very strong singing vibes, despite its complexity. What else do you need? Inspired by the witcher computer game series, the lyrics even reinforce the power of this banger and the clip of Dirk Behlau fits perfectly into the whole. Let me tell you: The divine machine has even more to offer. And that’s not a promise – it’s the ultimate truth. Stay tuned.”
