Blind Guardian and At the Edge of Time have been nominated for an ECHO award (basically the German equivalent of the Grammy) in the category “Rock/Alternative Band – National”. The band is up against other nominees such as the Scorpions and Unheilig.
Checking in from the secret Guardian bunker somewhere near Krefeld, Hansi had the following reaction:
“I have no idea if we can win in the end or not. But, fact is that we are very excited to be nominated for the ECHO. To have the strength of At the Edge of Time recognized in this manner makes us proud, it has been many years since we were last nominated.”
The 2011 ECHO award show takes place Thursday, March 24th in Berlin, Germany.
