Done for the The Dwarves game Soundtrack. Well for me this track is better than anything in the last album. Plus finally a good production/mixing for a BG song than the last album unbeareble production.

No Andre or Frederick? That's interesting. This an official Guardian song?

I assume it is, since it was aknowledge by the band that fist posted it in their official facebook page, than later on their label Nuclear Blast official youtube channel.

No, it says right there in the credits. They had no involvement in writing the song, they just performed it.

The only way I would see this showing up on a future release would be as a bonus track and not part of a main tracklist.

Why is this not on the front page? Or is Facebook nowadays the main way of interacting with fans? :wink:

Ah, so it's not from BG? I heard the song on YouTube and had assumed they wrote it. It seemed a teaser, in style, of the orchestral album.
"There's a time when a man needs to fight and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny's lost, the ship has sailed and that only a fool will continue. The truth is I've always been a fool"
~~~~~~~~~~~~
A slight call afar is tempting me, like a whisper sweet or an awful scream; I cannot ignore what I've always been, I'm leaving again - one last time? in my little kingdom I can be what I really wanted to be... The wanderer

Charlie should put his hears on this great mix.

Is it possible to buy the song "Children of the Smith" anywhere? Or is my only choice to rip it from YouTube?

(According to this thread, it's not even in the game...)

There was some kind of collector's edition which was an perk of the crowdfunding campaign.
Part of it was a audio CD with the game soundtrack and the mentioned song.
I guess you only can get it if you are lucky to find someone who sells it.

The digital version can be bought via steam:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/5450 ... on_Extras/

If you own the game you can buy the upgrade for 10 euros.

Further info:

or you have to wait and hope that i will be a future bonus track. Like it was with the JP cover "beyond the realms of death" (available on the Judas priest tribute 2 Sampler, later on the Mirror Mirror single)
or "All the King's horses" (Bonus track on japanese ATITM, later on Another stranger me single)
Sorry about my bad english, but the good one is on vacation!
