Live Interview NOW

#1 Post by somnia » 15 Jun 2010 13:15

Seems like a lot of us are already there, but I wanted to announce it here too, so that if anyone has missed the Facebook page post can also listen.

Here is a live video interview with the band, starting in a minute or two. Come quickly.

EDIT: There is a 30-min delay with bad music on air for now.
power progressive metal: polimat
game music and soundtrack: dogac yavuz

thx for mentioning somnia.
Certainly interesting, though way too long wait and way too much pens in the chat . Still, it was fun.

Did Hansi finally took the pen? I guess he just did the interview because he heard that the interviewer had such a nice pen.

Why else would he take the pen??
Another Blind Guardian mystery.. this is something that should be asked in one of the interviews yet to come :shock: Whose pen is it? Where did it come from? What is its purpose? And its deeper meaning?

Maybe Hansi didn´t want the pen, but influence the interviewer? Hansi forced him to write what he want. Now I know why Hansi looked so concentrated...

YES! And it also works with melody-lines. He writes them down with his magic quill, sings it and forces us to think it´s great.

as I just said on the facebook site: Hansi was staring at the one guy's pen throughout the entire interview ... everyone was constantly joking about this in the chatroom.. and in the end Hansi took the pen with him ;) we simply wonder why..
@Metal Fan: Someone said it would be posted on the site in a few days, I think...

And at the end of the interview, when Hansi and André were gone, the guy returned as if he was searching for his pen :lol:

So there's a live interview with Blind Guardian when the first studio album in 4 years is about to be released, and you guys talk about a PEN????
"There's a time when a man needs to fight and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny's lost, the ship has sailed and that only a fool will continue. The truth is I've always been a fool"

I've uploaded interview in 3 parts:
Part 1 (no sound in the beginning and in the end)
Part 2 (no sound in the beginning)
Part 3 (no sound in the end - just a little proof of the fact that no pen was stolen :) )
