Blind Guardian Re-Releases of first four albums OUT NOW!

Germany-based progressive power metallers BLIND GUARDIAN re-release their first four studio albums via Nuclear Blast! The back-catalogue has been remixed and remastered, and is available as 2CD-Digi and black vinyl formats, as well as individual coloured vinyl for each album.

Singer Hansi Kürsch comments: “It took a little while, but finally, today, we proudly announce the spectacular re-release of our first four album classics. These albums will not only be available as beautiful 2-CD-digipak-versions but can also be purchased as  gatefold vinyl versions. Since our vinyl versions of the back program have become so rare over the years, people kept on asking us for such a re-release. Now your wish is granted. The CD-version will contain two CDs. One will feature an up-to-date- sounding re-mix and the other one presents the original mixing. Both are sounding great. In comparison to the original mixings, our input on the re-mixings was far bigger. and therefore have been used for the vinyl versions. They sound fresher, richer and more exciting than the original ones and still pay tribute to the original recordings . It is 100% old school BLIND GUARDIAN in a modern garment. What more can you ask for? So far it has been a long journey, but it is not over, yet: We will continue with the next 3-classic-BG-albums, soon. Same band, same set up. Enjoy and stay tuned.”

‘Long shadows are cast by great events. On the occasion of the re-release of our first four albums, in double-CD and vinyl versions, we were urged to find answers to questions which no one had ever dared to ask. It was total mayhem! Enjoy the first part of the big Blind Guardian History Talk’.
