In 1992, Blind Guardian released "Somewhere Far Beyond", a legendary milestone of German speed metal. Three decades later, their latest offering, "The God Machine," shows how to awaken the furore and power of youth to magical new life. As if they had paid a long overdue visit to the numerous highlights of their career, Blind Guardian appear to be in touch with the ghosts of their own past more than ever. "We've picked up a lot from our own history and build a new era upon this foundation,” vocalist Hansi Kürsch explains.

This new era begins right now. Seven years after "Beyond The Red Mirror" and almost three after the orchestral opus "Blind Guardian Twilight Orchestra: Legacy of the Dark Lands", Hansi Kürsch (vocals), André Olbrich (lead guitar, acoustic guitar, rhythm guitar), Marcus Siepen (rhythm guitar and acoustic guitar) and Frederik Ehmke (drums) invite you to their personal twilight of the gods. "After 'Beyond The Red Mirror' and 'Legacy Of The Dark Lands,' we knew we couldn't push the orchestral side of Blind Guardian any further," Kürsch says. The new directive while creating “The God Machine” was "less orchestration, more punch." In 2022, the opulent arrangements and powerful choirs still exist yet are used in a much more selective, focussed and resonant manor.

Blind Guardian and producer Charlie Bauerfeind wanted to emphasize the band in its essence and the result is absolutely rewarding. “The God Machine” is a compact, aggressive, dynamic album, refined with cinematic moments, archetypal melodies and epic grandeur. It also closes the ranks between past and present by not ignoring their recordings of late, but consciously rebalancing complexity and impact in favour of the latter. It is the "Imaginations From The Other Side" of 2022, composed, and, above all, unleashed by a band that has had 27 years to perfect its style. "We didn't want to rehash our qualities from back in 1995, but didn't want to continue down this complex path forever either. 'The God Machine' is a new beginning for us. We've set a new course and gone back to certain things that we've neglected a bit on the last few albums."

“The God Machine” fully embraces evolution while honouring the roots of a band that started humbly in Krefeld, Germany as speed metal act Lucifer’s Heritage in 1984. After renaming to Blind Guardian in 1987, they constantly kept honing their craft and released legit metal classics like “Tales From The Twilight World” (1990), “Somewhere Far Beyond” (1992), “Imaginations From The Other Side” (1995), and “Nightfall in Middle-Earth” (1998), albums that formed a strong bond between metal and fantasy that is second to none.
