NEW DOUBLE LIVE ALBUM IN 2017 AND ORCHESTRA ALBUM IN 2018!!

#1 Post by Guardian'86 » 08 Aug 2016 11:50

Hansi Kursch interviewed in Montreal before the show at the Heavy Montreal Festival, he said that they will release a new live album in 2018 and orchestral album in 2019 which is the next album !!

So I suppose that for the next regular studio album we have to wait at least 2020 or 2021 :) Anywait can't for both releases !!

EDIT :
New live album coming out in 2017 and orchestral album most probably in 2018 according to this news posted on Halloween's day !!

Well, finally some update actually.. But I really doubt seeing the regular album so soon after the orchestral one. Maybe this time they will skip it, cause the orchestral one will also be under the "Blind Guardian" name. I don't know, it's so much time, but at the end, we'll get masterpieces, that's for sure.

Wasn't the live one supposed to come out this year (and the orchestral no later than in 2017)? :mrgreen:
I don't really care when they are released, the important thing is the quality, just as Hansi said, and I trust them, so whenever they'll come I'll be ready happy :D

Yeah me too.
I wanna hope we won't have to wait more than 4 years for the next world tour of BG, starting from this year 2016. Considering that they will release their orchestral album (which I guess it's too a studio album) they may do a tour for it in 2019 - 2020.
Or they could work both on the orchestral and on the regular studio album...but it's hard to think something like this.
In the meantime for sure the next and closest release is the live album planned for 2018 !!

I have the feeling he might have made a mistake: if, as he said, they'll mix the live album in the end of this year it's unlikely that it will take more than one year before the release.
If they really mix it by 2016 we could see a release in mid-2017

Great news!
It's still a long way through, but having something to count down at feels good!

Don't really understand why such a wait for the live album, maybe they were unsatisfied with some songs and/or wanted to record more?
"Well, I was about to announce the next song, but I think we'll have to skip it...
Yeah, because we have a pretty sad song here, and you all seem so happy to me...!"

I'm guessing for the double live album that one disc will be just all IFTOS and the second disc will be all other songs.

Now be fair, I'm sure they'll spread IFTOS songs out across both discs. :lol:

Hey, since there is the video, here is the written one:

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/blind- ... w-in-2019/

Interesting is:
"But composing-wise, we are almost working on the second album already."
This sounds like, there are starting with a "normal" Album parallel to the orchestral one.

I got it more like this:
They have already composed enough material (orchestral stuff) for a second (orchestral)album.

I wanna hope so....I mean the next regular studio album in 2020 maybe...after the orchestral one in 2019 !! It would be to long waiting another 4/5 years after 2019 (release of the orchestral one) and so in 2023 or 2024 for the next studio album and tour !!
So I hope :
2019 : orchestral album
2020 : studio album and tour until 2021 like usual

Yet it's not clear if they will do a tour for the orchestral album but I think it's too hard to think....

indeed, in this german interview below, he says that the want to release it early 2017 and the orchestra album maybe 2018

It's has to be a mistake.. It's obvious that 2016 is already in the past in his head, because of the tour, and that's where the mistake comes from probably :/ Or at least I hope so... At the same this will give a space for a regular album around 2021 which is also great and not that long. This way we might have 2 albums for 6 years, which sounds perfect in terms of Blind Guardian and the quality we always receive. This seems the like best possible way in my imagination. Hope it will get true, at least this time :D

If the orchestral one comes out in 2019, you think we'd get the regular one by 2020 or 2021? That keeps these lads very very busy. :)

Absolutely not :D This is way too optimistic, but if it comes out in 2018 then there might be a chance for the late 2021. But this also sounds kind of optimistic, cause we all know the bards and the time they spend in the studio

I see them wanting to tour again after the orchestral album regardless of them playing two, three or no songs from it and doing a regular album after that, as they always write on tour and work on an album for a few years minimum, would probably be 2022 or later til' a regular Guardian album is ready for release. Though just because it is orchestral, doesn't mean it is going to be too unlike a regular Blind Guardian album. 8)

Even because they already have lots of songs with orchestral lines :wink:
Of course, THE orchestra album will have it in a bolder way.
And I think this album will have new and old songs... this will be amazing.
Just cant wait :!:

Yes, they always say that they're also working on some surprises and I also hope for some older songs done with orchestra only. It will be amazing to hear songs like Blood Thears, Thorn, Noldor, And Then There Was Silence threated this way too :o :D

Thanks for this post - somehow I missed this news! Can't wait to hear the orchestral compositions they've been working on for so long. Whether it's 2018, 2019 or whenever is fine with me as long as they complete it to their fullest satisfaction. Next regular studio album by 2021 sounds like a good target, 2022 may be more likely.

Yeah the problem is to see if we have to wait, after this north american tour 2016 this fall, another 6/7 years for next BG tour....or if they will tour for the orchestral and so directly in 2020/2021 we will get the tour supporting the orchestral album, that is not clear yet ! we'll see :) and so their plans may change..

Acknowledged, playing the whole Imaginations From The Other Side album during our latest live activities has been totally fun for us and our fans. Therefore, we thought, it would be unfair not to do the same thing during our next shows in 2016 and for the handful of shows we intend to play in 2017. Expect some nice and entire Imaginations From The Other Side treats for these shows, since they will become very rare occasions. We are determined to go back into studio mode and the transformation actually has been begun already. We suppose, you all know what our next missions are going to be. Just to put that straight: the live album is going to be released in 2017 and the orchestral one most probably is coming out in 2018. We will provide you with more information at the right time. Still, a shame we cannot play another Halloween show this year. No worries, the world will turn, nonetheless, and there will be tricks, there will be treats…

Playing the whole Imaginations is nice, if only they didn't do basically that back in the previous tours already, when there were 5-6 songs off the album and only 2-3 of the newest one... :P

Anyway, having a tentative deadline for the orchestral album is exciting!!!!

Finished means for sure in terms of songwriting, musically speaking because at the moment they are busy with the mixing of the live album coming out in june or july of this year they can't have recorded anything.
He said that these two songs are characterized by a freestyle of songwriting. I don't think they recorded anything considering the actual commitment for new live album. The new studio album will be close to BTRM but more aggressive according to Hansi and freestyle. Once accomplished the mission for the live album for most of the year he will be busy with recording vocals for the orchestral. The new studio album for me will be released at the latest in 2020!

There isn't enough content indeed, and i was confused as well about this word.
But i think Guardian is right. I guess he meant finished with songwriting.

According to the interview the live album is done (mixing and mastering)
Marcus tells he just has to check the credits.

So i guess for a release in August/September, hopefully earlier.

There's big news for BLIND GUARDIAN: The Progressive Power Metal pioneers announce the release of a new 3-CD package entitled, »Live Beyond The Spheres«! This will include material recorded from various Shows during the European tour leg in 2015 - among old classics, new tracks as well as songs that are played very rarely during live shows.

Vocalist Hansi Kürsch speaks about the difficulties to create such an ambitious album: "In general I would say that we've had a really good run on this tour and that nearly every show was perfect. But at the end of the day, after every band-member has checked each and every song and concert of those 30 shows again and again, there were only like two or three versions of each song being suitable to be used for an album. We then had to decide between those last remaining Versions, which would have been the most impressive one. This was a nearly endless task!"
But as we all know, BLIND GUARDIAN stands for perfectionism in any way.

"The Songs finally Chosen reveal such an energy, that poissible smaller mistakes appeared to be totally unimportant for the evaluation. As soon as you have listened to the songs, you will know what I mean, they feel alive", the vocalist continues.
But in the end, the effort was all worth it. Hansi sums up: "There is always something happening at each show, let's call it 'MAGIC', that is giving us all creeps. We are really satisfied when the people sing with us, have a good time and go back home happy."

»Live Beyond The Spheres« is scheduled to be released on July 7th as 3-CD and 4-LP Box.

Below is the track listing:
CD1
01. The Ninth Wave
02. Banish From Sanctuary
03. Nightfall
04. Prophecies
05. Tanelorn
06. The Last Candle
07. And Then There Was Silence
CD2
01. The Lord Of The Rings
02. Fly
03. Bright Eyes
04. Lost In The Twilight Hall
05. Imaginations From The Other Side
06. Into The Storm
07. Twilight Of The Gods
08. A Past And Future Secret
09. And The Story Ends
CD3
01. Sacred Worlds
02. The Bard’s Song (In The Forest)
03. Valhalla
04. Wheel Of Time
05. Majesty
06. Mirror Mirror
No Curse of Feanor. :(

There's big news for BLIND GUARDIAN: The Progressive Power Metal pioneers announce the release of a new 3-CD package entitled, »Live Beyond The Spheres«! This will include material recorded from various Shows during the European tour leg in 2015 - among old classics, new tracks as well as songs that are played very rarely during live shows.

Vocalist Hansi Kürsch speaks about the difficulties to create such an ambitious album: "In general I would say that we've had a really good run on this tour and that nearly every show was perfect. But at the end of the day, after every band-member has checked each and every song and concert of those 30 shows again and again, there were only like two or three versions of each song being suitable to be used for an album. We then had to decide between those last remaining Versions, which would have been the most impressive one. This was a nearly endless task!"
But as we all know, BLIND GUARDIAN stands for perfectionism in any way.

"The Songs finally Chosen reveal such an energy, that poissible smaller mistakes appeared to be totally unimportant for the evaluation. As soon as you have listened to the songs, you will know what I mean, they feel alive", the vocalist continues.
But in the end, the effort was all worth it. Hansi sums up: "There is always something happening at each show, let's call it 'MAGIC', that is giving us all creeps. We are really satisfied when the people sing with us, have a good time and go back home happy."

»Live Beyond The Spheres« is scheduled to be released on July 7th as 3-CD and 4-LP Box.

Below is the track listing:
CD1
01. The Ninth Wave
02. Banish From Sanctuary
03. Nightfall

No Curse of Feanor. :(
Exactly my thoughts, but then I read - ''European Shows 2015''. They didn't play it then. So, no Guardian of the Blind :(

Weird choice, I would have bet on it being in the live.
Anyway, amazing news, can't wait to have it in my hands.
And the artwork is amazing, the best one since "Live"!

But didn't they record shows in North America? Or am I losing my mind?

They did, but maybe decided not to include them, for whatever reason....

mh, i have mixed feelings.
Sadly no curse of feanor and no miracle machine? So just 8 "new" songs of 22 songs. I had hoped for more songs, which weren't on Live.
Now we have 12 songs from LIVE... :?


But thumbs up for a painted artwork.

And no epic title like "As dark night embraces" ...but Dragonfly was close (at least with the content):

The artwork gives me hope for future releases following a similar trend, but like others are saying, the track list is somewhat underwhelming. I know they played Otherland on this tour, and it actually sounds fantastic live if their Wacken performance of it is any evidence. Strange they didn't include it or Guardian of the Blind.

I'm also surprised Curse of Feanor didn't make it. At the Atlanta show, I remember Hansi saying they were recording for a new live album, and also lead into Curse of Feanor by stating it was "a song they've never played live before" or something to that effect. I thought for sure that it would make it on the live album.

Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll release some outtakes after the fact like they did with Live? Wishful thinking, I'm sure, but one can hope...

On Facebook I saw some comments about from which show certain songs on the new live album were. Is there public information on that yet??
