A few more interviews

#1 Post by Dark Age » 11 May 2011 17:04

Hoping they have not been posted before

Interview with Marcus in German http://www.spielemagazin.de/brennpunkte ... terspiele/

Interview with Hansi in English http://venia-mag.net/interview/a-i/blin ... h/?lang=en
VENIA: What do you think about promotion via social services like Facebook, Myspace etc.?
HANSI: You have to use it. You cannot change reality that is simple fact. And the virtual reality has become a part of our life. Of course we use these social medias and we try to stay in contact with people as much as possible. But again it just creates one image that is not the same when people attend our concerts and buy our CDs. It is just that people follow us and they are aware of the band but that doesn’t neccecary mean that they are die-hard fans. We have maybe 220 000 followers on Facebook but these people are not die-hard fans. The value of music is dissapearing nowdays. I am not a pessimist and I don’t say that music will dissapear completely but you can see that there is a tought wind or a though spot, you can say, to all this instruments people have. Young people have so many things to chose for, there is not only one thing that they go for either in music or in anything. Though in first case this medias all help and it doesn’t loosen the string between the band and fans. That is the main issue for us to keep the bond between the people who are really into a music and the only way to to it is to do good music and good live shows. That is the only option we have nowdays. Other than that we could use mainstreamish instruments which do not lead to mainstream success.
Interview with Hansi in Englisch http://www.metalcovenant.com/pages/inte ... rdian3.htm
MettleAngel: At Wikipedia there is this direct quote, "I am a faithful but very critical Christian".
Hansi: Hmnn, that is only half true.
MettleAngel: So you are not a Christian?
Hansi: I was raised as a Christian, and I do believe there is tremendous wisdom to be gleaned from the Bible, but I am not a practitioner of the faith. My family and I do not attend any religious service.
Our lives are merely trees of possibilities

Thanks man <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

What’s the update on an orchestral project for Blind Guardian? Is it still slated for 2013?
Kürsch: 2013 sounds a little ambitious at the moment. I am hoping for 2014. This could be a great year. Ever since A Night at the Opera, my goal is to release the orchestral album the same year we are going to release the studio album. In vain, so far. But I will never give up hope.

Other more immediate plans and goals for the band?
Kürsch: We have just started songwriting and we are all really excited about it. My goal is a double release in 2014 for Blind Guardian and a 2015 release for Demons and Wizards. Let’s cross our fingers.
Double release in 2014 for Blind Guardian!!! 8)
