Virgin Records To Re-issue Blind Guardian Albums in Vinyl LP

#1 Post by DREAMASTER » 03 May 2016 20:00

Well according to my source, EMI/Virgin will re-issue all BG LP's in black vinyl from "Battalions of Fear" to "A Night at the Opera". NIME will be released in 2LP gatefold black vinyl for the first time. This re-issues are set to 2017.

Let's hope my source info is true :)

Great news! Do you have any idea which versions will be? The original ones, the Remastered, or the Remixed?

I asked him that but he couldn't tell me so far. But I believe the Original ones (I hope) since there isn't any re-mastering for vinyl, just for cd.

I guess it's time again for Virgin to do release their BG stuff or else their rights on them will end... every 5(?) years:
2007 the remastered series (5 years after ANATO), 2013 the traveler's guide to space and time, and 2017 vinyl re-releases. Makes sense.

It's nice that younger vinyl collectors can buy them in stores again. Thanks for the info. I will head out for IFTOS (i only have the picture disc), NIME (picture disc as well) and ANATO.

Yeah.

The Original LP's are hard to get and very expensive.

So I guess since NB is rereleasing the old albums, we're to take it that the right to the albums have been transfered over to NB as Virgin failed to renew the license? Hopefully NB will be releasing vinyls at some point :roll:
