  • The album is scheduled to be released throughout most of Europe on January 24th. The first edition is supposed to come in a unique digipak. And this is not definite yet, but it should appear in North America a couple weeks after that. Jon and Hansi had a fun and very successful whirlwind trip through Europe on their promotional tour, and the response to the album thus far has been fantastic.
  • DEMONS & WIZARDS - Demons & Wizards / SPV
    Oh my, oh my. John Schafer (guitarist of Iced Earth) and Hansi Kursch (vocalist of Blind Guardian) have created an almost perfect heavy metal album. The music is a mix of the two bands with most songs being more close to the Iced Earth style, while the vocal lines are clearly Blind Guardian. The majority of the songs are heavy, with the rhythm guitar of John playing a leading part with some amazing riffs, but you will also find a couple of more melodic songs. This album is the proof that when two geniuses combine their talents they can do miracles. The cover-art is a piece of art, the songs are catchy, heavy and melodic enough, the production is crystal clear (but also heavy) and the album is probably the best metal album of the year. A buy or die album for all classic metal and power metal fans around the globe. (taken from

  • Recording of Demons & Wizards was completed in 29 August, and everything went very well. A record label is still being decided upon, so at this point it is difficult to estimate a possible release date, but sometime in early 2000 would probably be a safe guess. You can get more information from The album, which is still untitled, was recorded during July and August of 1999 at Morrisound Studios. It will feature ten songs, plus an intro and outro, for a total running time of 45 - 50 minutes. Some of the tenative track names are: Heaven Denies, Poor Man's Crusade, Fiddler on the Green, Tyrant, The Whistler, Tear Down the Wall, Gallows Pole, My Last Sunrise and Path of Glory.

    Line up:
    Jon Schaffer: Rhythm guitar, Bass
    Hansi Kürsch: Vocals
    Jim Morris: Lead guitar
    Mark Prator: Drums

    Demons & Wizards is a new project featuring Jon Schaffer of Iced Earth and Hansi Kürsch of Blind Guardian. Combining the heavy crunch and dark melodies of Iced Earth with the powerful vocals and bombastic choirs of Blind Guardian, Demons & Wizards sounds just like a combination of those two excellent bands, and at the same time, creates something entirely unique.
    Jon and Hansi have been both friends and fans of each other's work for many years, and have long wanted to create some music with each other. They've finally managed to squeeze some time out of their busy schedules with their own bands to create a whole album together. These pages will keep you updated on the progress of the release, so check back every once in a while to find out about any new developments.

  • André and Marcus were on Rock Hard chatroom on 13nd July. It was a funny chat :) At least i like the English parts. Most of the chat was in German. Some important answers. Blind Guardian is working on new on their own studio. After finishing album they plan a tour which suppose to visit Turkey. They haven't obtain an offer to make a soundtrack for movie of Lord Of The Rings yet. André says: "I would do everything to compose some music for the film, but i guess they don't like metal bands, like always...". Hansi Kürch is working with Jon Schaffer (Iced Earth) on "Demans And Wizards" project. The album will be out at the end of summer. André's favourite 5 BG Songs are "Into The Storm", "Mordred's Song", "And The Story Ends", "Blood Tears" ve "Lost In The Twilight Hall". They think to release a new live album after the new album but Marcus thinks it is early for a new liva album. He doesn't want to play the same songs again. And video :) André just said: "We'll see". Marcus started to play guitar when he was 11 years old. And he was born in 08/09/68 and André was born in 03/05/66.

  • Hansi's hearing problems are almost gone. There will be no new EP this year. Instead the band is working on their next album, which should be finished before the year 2001. It won't be a concept album. Hansi's project with Jon Schaffer (Iced Earth) is doing well. They will meet in summer to continue their work on it.

  • A Blind Guardian Newsgroup is about to come.

    / I'm Andreas Kalchschmid and I don't think that you know me. Nevermind, some time ago (or some month :-) I sent emails to all members of the Ring of the Bards how they think about a BG-Newsgroup. As there were many replies I started to learn how to create a new newsgroup (it's more difficuilt than you think). To create an alt.* nesgroup is not hard, but when you want to create a "real" nesgroup that can be read by all users is difficuilt. But at least now there is a RDF (Request for Discussion) at news.groups. I hope some of you will look there. After about 21 days there will be a CFV (Call for Votes). Then we need at least 100 more yes-votes than no-votes that the group will be built. But I will sent another mail by time. Please also write something on you homepage and tell your friends. If you have any further questions just write me!

    Some news from official page. First of all the proposed EP has been cancelled. This is because right before the first recordings for the EP were scheduled to happen Hansi experienced some serious troubles with his hearing. The doctors have assured Hansi that after his prescribed treatments and some rest time his hearing will be back to normal. The songs that were supposed to go on this EP will be held over for the next full length BG release which the band is already working on.

    In addition to the bad news about the EP there is also some bad news concerning BG tours. BG has cancelled all their touring through the end of 1999. This means no Scandinavian tour, no festival in Madrid at the end of May, and no Summermania II festival in Germany! The band was sorry to have to do this but rushing Hansi into a live situation can only make his hearing problems worse and endanger the future of the BG!

    First good news:
  • Check all pages! :) There are lots of changes .. Especially MEDIA PAGE and DISCOGRAPHY PAGE.
  • New photos added ... Photos Page

    And bad news:
    Mostly bad news this time around.  Let me cut right to the chase:
    OFFICIAL WEB PAGE STATUS: As most of you probably have noticed there have been some problems on the web page.  The counter reset itself and the discussion forum thingy no longer works.  This is because porter (the machine that the web page resides on) had some problems 2-3 weeks ago and things got royally fucked up.  And then I had some trouble with my machine at home and that is why nothing has been done about the web page troubles yet.  This seems like a good excuse to get everything moved over to the new server.  Now if Pedro and I just had some free time.
    HANSI'S EARS: About 1-2 weeks ago Hansi came down with a "Hoerstotz", I think that is how you spell the German word *chuckle*, that caused him to lose most of his hearing power in one side.  In addition to this he had to fight with Tinitus which left him a loud ringing noise in the same ear.
    To cure these things Hansi is now undergoing treatment in Krefeld. The treatment is the same a divers undergo when they have "the bends".  He has to sit in a big tank and be "lowered: to various pressures.  This sequence of treatments will be done in two more weeks and then the doctors say that 85-90% of his hearing will be back and the rest should come back naturally.
    Hansi attributes all of this to stress and not to loud music since he wears a hearing protection system while on stage.  He has faith that everything will be back to normal after these treatments.
    THE "NEW" EP: Sound engineer Charlie Bauerfeind was scheduled to come down to Krefeld right before Hansi had his ear problems.  Therefore the band has put the recording of the EP on indefinite hold right now.  This doesn't mean that it is cancelled though.  It could go through the way it was originally planned (although a bit late) or the "new" songs could end up as b-side material for the next full release.  The band doesn't want to linger on this old material since they would like to start working harder on new stuff.
    TOURING (OR LACK THEREOF): Basically all "planned" touring activities have been cancelled.  BG was supposed to headline a festival on May 22nd in Madrid, Spain; that is now cancelled.  And also an almost fully confirmed Scandinavian tour is cancelled.  I have no word on anything else in the later summer.  There is a possibility for 1-2 small festivals here in Germany.
    So that is all the stuff that I have for now.  Sorry to be the bringer of bad news but there have been many rumors running around and I wanted to clear some things up. (Jason Breitweg)

    Well, I have some new information about the forcecoming EP "Harvest Of Sorrow", which is said to be released at the end of February or unfortunately a little later:
    The four songs will - propably - be:
    - Harvest Of Sorrow: A fantastic ballad (already played live in Brazil)
    - Of Elves And Dwarves: A mid-speed song
    - Túrin Turambar: A speed number - is said to be the best song
    - The Eldar: from "Nightfall..." - maybe even another new song instead (hopefully)
    I got this information via BG mailing list and I cannot say if they are true or not... well, we'll see!

    So the word from on high (direct from Hansi) is that he and Jon Schaffer from Iced Earth will be getting together in mid-January to work on their project tentatively entitled Demons & Wizards. Hansi hopes that the whole thing can be finished by the end of June in time for an end of 1999 release.

    Now on to word about the forthcoming EP. The working title has been changed from The Eldar to Harvest of Sorrow. The title song, "Harvest of Sorrow", has already made its live debut in Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico. Titles for the other songs are not yet set in stone. The remaining work consists of vocals, some lead guitar parts and the mixing. This work, which the band will start in mid-February, should be finished in 3 weeks in time for a Spring release.

    In other recording news during the second week of December BG will be recording the Black Sabbath song "Die Young" for the upcoming Rock Hard Magazine tribute to Ronnie James Dio. Some other bands taking part in this will be Iron Savior, Gamma Ray, and Stratovarius. We have no information yet as to the release date of this tribute CD.

    Finally Hansi mentioned that the band might try and play some of the big festivals this year such as Dynamo or even Rock am Ring. Only time will tell.

    Word from Brazil is that Hansi has fallen ill and needed to be taken to a hospital. Apparently he got food poisoning since his sensitive German stomach couldn't handle that spicey Brazilian food. But in all seriousness we wish him the best and hope that he feels better soon. We have no word yet on when the last two concerts in Brazil will take place.
