"Fly" is from Warsaw and "Imaginations from the Other Side" is from Hamburg. :wink: Need to listen to all three CDs again to find out more. :roll:

I hope they also took The Bard's Song from the Warsaw concert. :D Although you wouldn't see how the audience is sitting down on a cd...

Great to see the forum renewed, but even better to see Jason and Joost to post again!

Very happy for the news of this triple CD and very curious to listen to it.
BG is one of the very few bands that I can still enjoy from my 16s, and their concert in Milan in 2015 was so good. It would be cool to have one song from it. Crowd was especially on fire, with chants for every single band member already after The Ninth Wave! :)

Can't wait!

The lack of Curse of Feanor is really disappointing. As is the general lack of songs they haven't had on a live album before. I love Blind Guardian, but why are they so obsessed with releasing the same songs over and over?

Any chance you could talk the band into releasing less-played songs that aren't on the album online as part of a media campaign for the live album? :wink: :wink:

I'm not sure if there are any songs that aren't included on the album that they played in 2015. I asked about "Curse of Faenor" but wasn't that only played in 2016? I forget...

So, tell me, what songs would be on a new live album that haven't been on previous live albums or DVDs? Keep in mind that some songs have never been played live at all, so those don't count.

I'd say that we're a very atypical crowd since we own everything and enjoy hearing "different" songs than the "hits". Most normal fans probably want to hear all the classics again...

I would have liked Skalds and Shadows, Blood Tears, Guardian of the Blind, Miracle Machine and Otherland :D
I understand that some people want to hear certain classics, but it wouldn't even make sense to make the same live album over and over again

True, they did play "Miracle Machine" a bunch of times, didn't they? Same with "Otherland". Hansi told me that they need at least 10 recordings of a song before one usable one comes out. :-P I don't think they played "Skalds and Shadows" or "Guardian of the Blind" on the 2015 tour.

You're welcome regarding the forum. I finally got off my butt and did something about it. Now something just needs to be done about the homepage itself.

I'm fairly sure they did Miracle Machine in every single date in 2015, definitely did Skalds and Shadows at least in Ljubljana in 2015, and I kinda remember seeing some setlist with Guardian of the Blind on (but unfortunately even if I saw them a lot of times during this tour I never caught that song :( )

EDIT: yep, here they are, they played it a few times

I got your point in this and it seems they are close to their regular setlist they played on this tour, so i can agree if two CDs represent the tour, but the third could have been the one with the gems (seldom played once). That's what i have hoped for...

I'll add Holy Grail to that list. It was 2016, so I don't know if they recorded it, but it seems a shame to do a tour for their new album, and then only include 3 of the 5 songs they played off it.

EDIT: I just looked at their average setlist for 2015 on setlist.fm, and everything on that 18 song list is on the album, except Miracle Machine, plus ATTWS, APAFS, ATSE, Bright Eyes, LITTH. So definitely I'd say they're trying to represent the average setlist rather than songs they haven't released before. I just wish they'd have more confidence in their newer material when designing setlists. :(

Absolutely!
I didn't mention it just because it wasn't 2015, but lifting that limitation I'd add even more songs.
I understand the perfectionism and the desire to represent the average setlist, but I would much rather have an album more varied and with more songs that never appeared in the previous lives.
Especially because in this tour they played again or for the first time some long forgotten gems which would be amazing to hear on a live album

In general I would prefer more new songs fixed in the setlist. When on tour promoting a new album I think it is very much justified to play at least half of those songs each concert. Having such a large catalog of classics makes it even more varied as they then won't be played every single time, but can be exchanged for other classics making every concert more unique. Then maybe for the 2nd leg of a tour it is possible to do a more classics oriented tour, like they did this time with IFTOS. Just my two cents on this...

It may also just be that they were never satisfied with specific performances of songs that were omitted. This is much more likely than the band just wishing to deprive the fanbase of new material, in my opinion.

Mi and Marcus needed their mics cranked up for this, especially due to the lack of any audio coming from the crowd - at least from my first listen without headphones. Marcus and Mi actually make this song live, with their backing.

Agree with Ryu, the back vocals could be amplified.

The teleporting band members are still as distracting as in the previous video. But here we also see that they can turn night into day :)
Imho it would have been better to choose one venue for each song, with possible mixes whenever was necessary and the replacement was not jarring. The Halloween performance could have been used as bonus videos.

I'm actually not at all bothered by the video... I don't mind if it is snapshots from many concerts, It is not like it is going to be a live DVD, it is an impression from their tour to support the live album.

I do agree on the audio... not only on the live album, but live in general, the backing vox need to be upped more.

I tried to ask Marcus about this during one of his "ask me anything" posts on Instagram, but he avoided the question. :P

I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up becoming "Doom", though.

As far as I know it's not "Doom" because "Doom" is one of those old Nightfall leftovers that they finished for the last album. "Winter's Coming", on the other hand, was a brand new song.

New short interview:
Jimmy Kay from Canada's The Metal Voice spoke Blind Guardian's Front man Hansi Kürsch while he was promoting their new 3cd 4LPS Live Beyond The Spheres album which will be out on July 7 2017 on Nuclear Blast

When asked about an update on the progress of Blind Guardians yet to be released Orchestral Album
"The Orchestral album is in the making for 20 years and we are getting closed to an end. I sang two songs already. I am suppose to be done at the end of December 2017 which means all the music will be done at that time. So basically, we will be ready to go for mixing the album and we are intending on release the whole thing in the beginning of 2019 I would say."

When asked about the concept of the Orchestral album
"Basically I am working with a German ensemble. What I can tell you about the concept is to a certain extent it is connected to the Czech Republic, so it will play an essential role I the story telling as well. It's going to be a fictional story connected to history too. I'm anxious to see where we end up. The first two songs I sang were quite interesting. There will be a lot of science there will be a lot of history there will be a little bit of everything and if things are rolling like they do at the moment then it will be a very pleasant experience. I can guarantee that you have not heard anything like that before."

When asked if there will be a new traditional Blind Guardian Studio album
"That will be released most probably in 2020 and believe it or not. We have finished two songs. One is called 'American Goth' and the other one is called 'Architect of doom' "

When asked if there will be a Blind Guardian Festival and who would he like to participate in it
"I would love to do it with Iced Earth and would like to connect it to the orchestral album."
Quotet here:
http://www.themetalvoice.com/single-pos ... tral-album

Great News, as always ;-)

The titles of the two songs for the next studio album seem to be very dark. Maybe there will be a touch of "Follow the Blind" Album with it.
(I would appreciate it, really one of my altime favorites)

Any other guess?

Thanks man. That was really informational. And I really love the idea of those songs as bonus for singles. That would be so much better than another Bards song (in the forest).

Sounds good! I can still hope to hear live versions of Holy Grail, Curse of Feanor, and Miracle Machine some day! And they've actually recorded most of the music for the OP, so them saying it'll come out 2018/2019 is more than just air. :lol:

What I can tell you about the concept is to a certain extent it is connected to the Czech Republic, so it will play an essential role I the story telling as well. It's going to be a fictional story connected to history too.
Does this mean that the collaboration with Markus Heitz is off? Have I missed this in one of the older news?

Not that I've heard. I think he just means that the story concept they've worked on with Heitz is connected to the Czech Republic.

So, it seems that it will be a combination between a fantasy and historical type of music... And I thought that I was hyped already... :D I cant wait to hear it, even that there is still a lot of time for it. Anyway, hope to hear more info during the next months. I need every update for this baby :twisted:

Great, I'd be more than stoked to read about that!
Here ya go!

Thank you so much! Great interview, I like the certainty with which Marcus said that the orchestral album is going to be released next year!

Yeah great interview, thanks for it!
Sadly i think Marcus made a mistake here. Still Hansi's voice recording is missing which keeps him busy till the end of the year, maybe even the next year. Then they have to do the mixing and mastering which can last another half year + in BG terms i guess more and then we have a delay starting from finished master recording to mass production and promotion. Which again can be up to 2-3 month (remember: Live beyond the spheres was announced in may and it will be released in july).
So in mey eyes 2019 is more realistic (Hansi also named 2019 in the latest interview). But i would be absolutely fine with an earlier release!!! :D
