On this great clash of epochs, Blind Guardian masterfully unite their past, present and future with renewed vigor and an unquenchable thirst for all things monumental. Both in the enchanted tales they tell as in intensity and complexity, “Beyond The Red Mirror” rises to the occasion, becoming the logical successor to their groundbreaking “Imaginations From The Other Side”. With enchanted references to “Nightfall In Middle-Earth” alongside first traces of the orchestral opus magnum that was to become “Legacy Of The Dark Lands”, Blind Guardian endow their tenth record with everything they’ve accomplished in the past 30 years – an appropriate larger-than-life finale to their third and most recent era, beloved by fans of their earliest works and new followers alike. And the story ends? Far from it. We are just about to witness a new beginning.
