BLIND GUARDIAN TWILIGHT ORCHESTRA - Working With Author Markus Heitz (Official Video Interview)

Blind Guardian Twilight Orchestra's Legacy Of The Dark Lands, the most ambitious project in the metal history of Blind Guardian, is out now.

The idea of recording an orchestral album originally formed in the minds of the two leading lights of the Blind Guardian universe - guitarist André Olbrich and singer Hansi Kürsch - during the 1990's when Blind Guardian started to use orchestral elements to enhance their opulent sound. The monumental project started to take shape over recent years, and mirroring its epic sound cascades, the lyrical concept was developed. To create the concept, André and Hansi worked alongside German bestselling author Markus Heitz, whose latest novel Die dunklen Lande was released on March 1, 2019.
