Hansi Kürsch, lead singer for Germany’s beloved sons BLIND GUARDIAN, has issued the following band update:


“A long, long time ago we promised additional material for the ones who bought the digi-pak version of At the Edge Of Time. As usual, things take far longer than expected, but at the very end, we keep our promise.  This is just another perfect example.  Enjoy our alternate mixing ideas for ‘Curse My Name’ and ‘Wheel Of Time.’  One appears a little heavier, the other a little more ‘Riverdance-ish.’  Enjoy music, enjoy life.”


Check your digi-pak for access codes and more information about how to access the bonus material.


BLIND GUARDIAN recently announced they are teaming up with German fantasy author Markus Heitz to work on a monumental concept album.


Their tenth studio album, At The Edge Of Time, attained the highest first-week sales numbers in the United States in the history of the band’s existence.  With sales of over 4,500 units, At The Edge Of Time secured the #1 position on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and also debuted at #108 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.  In Canada, the album debuted at #18 on the Top Hard Music Albums chart and #108 on the Top 200 chart according to Nielsen Canadian Soundscan.
