BLIND GUARDIAN have announced a new album!
Titled THE GOD MACHINE, the eleventh studio album from the German power metal legends is the follow-up to 2019’s Legacy Of The Dark Lands, and is scheduled to be released in September this year via Nuclear Blast Records.
Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band have shared a new music video for the single Blood Of The Elves, which follows the release of Secrets Of The American Gods back in March.
Speaking about the new song, vocalist Hansi Kürsch comments, “Blood Of The Elves features a pretty heavy side that the avid fan of BLIND GUARDIAN hopefully enjoys well. More than well, I’d guess. Instrumentally, the track has some kind of an early 90s appeal that blends well into the vocal parts of the opera/twist era, and catapults both epochs into a new era for the band. A perfect hybrid. The chorus has some very strong sing-along 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 by Dirk Behlau fits perfectly to the whole setting. Let me tell you: The God Machine has even more to offer. And that’s no promise – that’s the ultimate truth. Stay tuned.”
