The God Machine marks another pinnacle in Blind Guardian’s impressive discography by not attempting to pretend that it is still the nineties, yet successfully relying on the muscle memory of this period. It is a gripping, addictive, and brilliantly arranged album in the tradition of records with which Blind Guardian reached for the stars in the 90s; yet, by no means is it a throwback. The God Machine represents the heart and soul of Blind Guardian’s timeless metal in the here and now, unifying the bards’ past, present, and future secrets in one consistent, well-thought-out masterpiece.

In 1992, Blind Guardian released Somewhere Far Beyond, a legendary milestone of modern speed metal. Three decades later, their latest offering, The God Machine, demonstrates how to awaken the fury of youth to a magical new life. As if they had paid a long overdue visit to the numerous highlights of their career, Blind Guardian appears to be in touch with the ghosts of their past more than ever. 

Seven years after Beyond The Red Mirror and almost three after the orchestral opus Blind Guardian Twilight Orchestra: Legacy of the Dark LandsHansi 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.
