Blind Guardian on julkaissut 25-vuotisjuhlaversion ”Imaginations From The Other Side” -levystä Nuclear Blastin kautta. Mukana on livemateriaalia sekä sekä demoja. Lisäksi bonuksena löytyy levyn läpisoitto BluRayna Oberhausenin konsertista 2016.

Yhtye taltioi parhaillaan uutta studiolevyä ensi vuoden julkaisua varten.

Vokalisti Hansi Kürsch kommentoi:

A brilliant album celebrates its 25th anniversary and it is great to celebrate this in such a bombastic manner. Luckily we filmed our 2016 show in Oberhausen when we performed the entire album live. This is the perfect moment for us to present this masterpiece in so many different ways. An ideal resurrection of precious memories long gone, but not forgotten. This album is made for eternity… I hope. Enjoy.

 

There are songs that carry albums and others that are seen more as a filler. At least that’s the case for most bands, so they say. But there are always exceptions to the rule; one of which is Blind Guardian and „Imaginations From The Other Side“ is the ultimate exception. It is all killer, no filler. The thing I can say about ‚Another Holy War‘ can be said for all of the songs on the album, which is that the song is awesome. Period.

 

It’s funny how during the recording of „Imaginations …“, every band member underestimated the song in terms of its complexity – severely underestimated! We thought of ‚Another Holy War‘ as a rather simple song, which was a typical error of judgement. At the same time, we thought of ourselves as flawless. That too was an error of judgement, at least in some parts. The price we had to pay for our juvenile arrogance was blisters on our hands, strained fingers and worn-out vocal cords. Still, we pulled it together in the end, and its thanks to Flemming Rasmussen you can’t hear our issues in the final result. I’m repeating myself here, but ‘Another Holy War’ is awesome. Seriously. The song isn’t only challenging because of its speed, and 25 years later not much has changed about that. But you grow with your challenges. Give us another 25 years and we’ll master it just perfectly. I promise.
