Blind Guardian - New Orchestral Song Sample Online


German power metallers Blind Guardian have posted a preview of the orchestral version of "The Bard's Song - In the Forest", which will appear on the upcoming release Memories Of A Time To Come, due out January 20th, 2012. More album details have been revealed here.

The band also commented: "'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the Twilight Hall Santa Guardian and his band of dark elves put the finishing touches on a gift for all the bad boys and girls in Blind Guardian land. Santa Guardian thought it was unfair that 'The Bard's Song - The Hobbit' was re-recorded for Memories Of A Time To Come but 'The Bard's Song - In the Forest' didn't get any special treatment."

"Using his own special brand of persuasion, Santa Guardian 'convinced' the band to make an orchestral version of 'The Bard's Song - In the Forest' for inclusion on Memories Of A Time To Come. Santa's gift to every Blind Guardian fan is a 95 second preview of this song. The whole Blind Guardian family wishes you and yours a very happy holiday season. See you in 2012!"

Less is More
Stay Pure
Stay Poor

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.

Omg lolz mad boner status. No but seriously, this was amazing; this is likely going to be the best album of 2012.

EDIT: Oh, I thought that this was an entire album if rerecorded songs; turns out only three are. Ah well.

I'm going to go take a few pills which will put me to sleep until January 20th, 2012 so that I can wake up and just listen to this album already!

Not bad, not bad. But I still prefer the original song.

It is humanity who must pay homage to the greatness of the Universe... not the Universe to the human narcissism.
