How was the video shoot for “A Voice In The Dark?”
I like the story of the video, and I like doing shooting for videos. Of course it's part of the business. It's not like playing live. It's very strange being in an empty room and performing and pretending to be in a pyramid. The guys from Serbia did a great job and are really supportive. It's not something I'd want to do every day.

En 2007, vous avez participé à la bande originale du film In The Name Of The King A Dungeon Siege Tale. Quels souvenirs avez-vous de cette expérience ?
(A) : Nous avions déjà travaillé sur la bande originale d'un film par le passé, mais c'était un film allemand qui n'a pas été diffusé en dehors du pays. Ca a été sympa de participer à cette expérience, même si en fait nous n'avons rien composé de neuf à ce sujet, on a juste repris des chansons de l'album (ndlr : il s'agit des chansons "Carry the Blessed Home" et "Skalds & Shadows" issues de A Twist In The Myst). Une vraie expérience fut par contre notre participation en 2008 à la bande originale du jeu Sacred 2 : Fallen Angel. Là, on a vraiment créé un morceau spécialement pour l'occasion : "Sacred". Nous avons été satisfaits de cette aventure d'autant que cette chanson vaut le détour. On trouve le jeu sur PC et Playstation 3, mais on peut le trouver partout. Il s'est très bien vendu.

Does anyone know which film is ment? Or am I too stupid to translate this correctly?

I always understood that they contributed Skalds And Shadows/Carry The Blessed Home for Dungeon Siege and additionally made the score for another film in the past :?

BG never made music for a film, besides their plans for Lord of the rings.

Carry the blessed Home and Skalds and Shadows were given from NB for the movie score of "In the Name of the King - A Dungeon Siege Tale" (i think these two songs played during the end titles, btw the german title is "Schwerter des Königs"), some kind of cooperation (Uwe Boll needed music, NB and BG got free advertising)

I know only one other movie, which has some BG song in it, and it is "Charly's Tante - Und es geschah am hellichten Tag" (a remake). They used "Run for the night" and BG only got known about it when their salary account from the GEMA (a german performance rights organisation) arrived.
At amazon you can find the OST, Track 14: OST Charly's Tante

Thanks for enlightenment. Nothing new so far. I was afraid, I missed something in the past :)

Thanks for the interviews <3
Now I'm riding through the air
Going to where no one dares
On the way I cross the line forevermore.
For once in life, I do not care
Nothing matters, now I dare
On the ride I'll cross the line
Forever to be free

I made some mistake, Run for the night was used for the movie "Und es geschah am hellichten Tag".
I thought it's the subtitle of "Charly's Tante", but it isn't. Both soundtracks are on one OST, that's all ;)

Sorry for bad english. The translation is not followed to the letter.

What are you doing at the Gamescom?

A:We're gamer and interested in new games of course an strolling here to take a look at the latest games.

M: We want to get an overview of the current development and watch what's in here.

I heard you're enthusiastic WOW players?

M: Not only.

A: Yes, of course. From the beginning. I think it's still one of the best games, whereas I'm playing as well other games such as Starcraft II or Mass Effect II I also played enthusiastically. We're playing all what's good.

I like to hear this. How do you come up with the cooperation for Sacred II?

M: We have been asked if we like to make a song for this game. This was very interesting for us because we never made anything in this direction. We got screenshots and info about the material and could contribute the song.

A: It was always a dream to make music for a computer game and Holger Flöttmann, the former boss from Ascaron is accidentally BG fan that was the connection. And I must say, it was a really interesting experience to have a look behind the scenes. We've also made the mocap sessions because of the ingame concert. It was a blast to be close to the action.

M: Especially when you're a gamer and you can see yourself in the game: massive experience.

Spectacular. In the German charts your at # 2 at the moment and in the European charts at # 7 with your latest album. What's the name of it?

A: It's called ATEOT and has been released two weeks ago and it seems our fans appreciate it. We're happy about it. Soon we are on tour with the album and present it live.

Which games do you take into the tourbus?

M: Really a lot. I recently bought a new laptop and installed the usual suspects. WOW. Starcraft, Sims... and I want to play Sacred II with Addon... and different things.

A: Yes. The problem with the bus is you don't have internet access all the time. Because of that games like Torchlight are also be played.

Torchlight is incredible. A poor blast.

A: It's definitely awesome. Addictive. Such games in between are terrific.

Did you have a chance to see Torchlight II?

Both: No.

OK, I will do it for sure and post it. I like to cordially thank you for this interview. I wish you lots of success and you've made me a very happy man. Tanks a lot.

A: It was a pleasure.


Btw next week (08.09.2010 20:00 h) radio mean variation will broadcast an interview with Hansi (at WOA what else? :wink: ) http://www.radio-meanvariation.de/index ... &Itemid=58
