…first a late, but still fresh, Happy New Year to everyone. After getting rid of some bonus pounds gained over the last few months due to live abstinence we are now getting ready for a very busy and exciting year of creativity and efficiency. Wishful thinking, you think? Blasphemy, I would reply! As most of you may have recognized, we have been busy all during 2012 with some additional touring activity and some extra missions, such as the completion of A Traveler’s Guide to Space and Time, which is a great legacy. It features all of our material from the Virgin era in a new and accurate framework, beautifully designed by Felipe Machado. The whole box offers a great insight about that particular part of our career. Even though it took us more time than expected, we are really pleased with the final result. It’s something we are really proud of and something which you hopefully are going to enjoy as much as we do. I just got my sample yesterday, and am really blown away.
This, of course, has not been the only thing we were doing during the last year. (more…)

Time to brush up on your German and check out the December 2012 issue (volume 307) of Germany’s Rock Hard magazine. Blind Guardian is featured on the cover and inside one will find an eight page interview celebrating the band’s 25th anniversary.
The whole band answers questions about the past and future and even some secrets. Rare band photos are also included where one can get a good laugh out of André’s tight checkered pants and Hani’s afro-like hair.
See the video below for more information about the issue. (more…)
