Blind Guardian Gives Us a Look at “Life Beyond the Spheres” in Their Latest Video
With their latest album The God Machine now out in the wild and fans now taking in Blind Guardian’s new offering, the German power metal band has put out a new music video to support their latest single “Life Beyond the Spheres.”
Featuring a more angular attack to their sound and futuristic approach, guitarist André Olbrich said inspiration for “Life Beyond the Spheres” came from a video game.
“I’m a big supporter of innovation, to bring the whole music genre forward to something else. Maybe even find something new that wasn’t there before, I think with ‘Life Beyond the Spheres,’ I knew I wanted to go somewhere in the soundtrack direction. At that time, I was playing Cyberpunk, so my inspiration was somewhat cyberpunkish. I tried to bring in a metal soundtrack in a cyberpunk direction, more spacey than we ever did before. Hansi grabbed that feeling and I think now we have a song we never did before, not even close to that genre. I like that, that is a very innovative song, I’m proud of this too.”
Singer Hansi Kürsch also chimed in, stating that the song “leads us to spaces unknown.”
“‘Life Beyond the Spheres’ leads us to spaces unknown and places where no man has gone before. It certainly delivers music that is not from this world. There is always hope. This is what the song means to me.”
The God Machine was released on September 2 and is currently available via Nuclear Blast Records. You can get your copy wherever albums are sold or stream it on the platform of your choice.
