He probably teamed up with Satan to steal God's voice. :roll:


And did you know...
... according to Hansi, Sauron is the mini dark lord. (WTF?!) :lol:

Sure, Morgoth was the big one. Sauron was his minion.

... Hansi's favourite track on NIME is Time Stands Still, though he also considers Mirror Mirror to be BG's best "representative" track?

That is indeed true, but Hansi said it like "The mini dark lord... we all know there is Mordred"

Wait, I'll change it 8)


Did you know...
... Hansi confuses Mordred for Morgoth?

Well, Mordred isn't a dark lord, but Morgoth is. And at the concert he clearly says Mordred, but he meant Morgoth right?

Or maybe I completely misunderstood it :lol:

Allegedly Hansi and Andre didn't like it when Thomen had a side project (Iron Savior) and pressured him to quit it, which in retrospect made Thomen angry when the D&W-album came out.

I'm not sure 100%, but I think that Mordred is rather the King Arthur's son...

Awesome! Where did you hear that?

Of course, the next tour probably won't be for another 6 or 7 years.
