Blind Guardian - Recording Material For Movie And Computer Game


Legendary Fantasy Metal band Blind Guardian have contributed the main song to the new action/fantasy movie "In The Name Of The King - Dungeon Siege". On this occasion, Blind Guardian will hold a signing session at a special premiere screening of the movie on the 29th of November.

This special event begins at 19.00 CET in the "UCI Kinowelt Ruhr Park" with the signing session; the movie begins at 20.00.

Additionally, the band have announced their participation in the soundtrack of a computer game, due for release in 2008. Vocalist Hansi Kürsch has posted the following on the band's site:

"We are happy to inform you about our musical participation in the upcoming blockbuster computer game "Sacred 2 - Fallen Angel". The PC and X-Box 360 game designed and invented by Ascaron will be in stores somewhere at the beginning of 2008. "Sacred 1" is the best selling German fantasy/adventure computer game to date.

Though we are still doing shows we have started writing songs for this particular occasion and will produce one song especially featured in the game as a videoclip. In case we will be able to come up with more songs during the next weeks we are going to release a "Sacred - Fallen Angel" EP in the Spring. This is a great opportunity for us and we are really enthusiastic about the game and our actual creative activities for it. Soon we are going to set up an infopage to keep you informed. There's more to come..."

old news i see that one week ago in Gamespot. I love role-playing games, and Sacred is a good game but this game is not worthy enough to have such music

Nightwish did precisely the same with "Wish I Had An Angel". Uwe Boll might be the worst modern filmmaker, but he readily accepts metal music for his movies - and since no other directors seem to be doing the same, bands are happy to get onto at least some soundtrack...

As far as I know they haven't decided any release yet. Hansi has said that he (because this is not said to be a BG album) might try to get it ready in a nearby future if he's not busy with other stuff connected to Blind Guardian. Besides, he's been working on it for a decade now or something

How fitting, the title even sounds like a BG song.

Actually, according to Wiki the LotR album IS going to be released under the Blind Guardian banner.

I'm actually looking forward to the new Sacred, I thought the first one was quite good.
