Recently launching a North American tour with Leaves' Eyes in support of "A Twist In The Myth", their Billboard-charting album (#21 on the Top Independent Albums chart and #288 on Billboard's Top Albums chart), Blind Guardian's German roots are never far behind. Featured in the "Betcha Can't Play This" section on Page 34 of the Holiday 2006 issue of Guitar World and on the DVD insert, guitarist André Olbrich explains how being exposed to classical music during childhood has made a definite impression on him as an adult musician, but not everything is composed with classically-tinged trills.

Eager to demonstrate the age-old adage of "All work and no play makes jack a dull boy," vocalist Hansi Kürsch and Olbrich stopped by the Revolver Magazine offices in August to record an impromptu song in two hours. To hear their resulting 40-second opus, go to and scrolll down to "Click below to hear the entire song!" Additional information is available on Page 44 in the current issue of Revolver.

In honor of Blind Guardian's "Adventures of 'The Unit' feature, Nuclear Blast is giving away Hansi's handwritten autographed lyrics and André's guitar pick used in the creation of the "Snakes Of Destruction" mp3. For more information on how to enter the contest, go to here.
