Blind Guardian - Drop New Single

"Violent Shadows", the second advance single from Blind Guardian's upcoming The God Machine full length, has premiered online. The song is supported by a performance video, directed by Dirk Behlau for Pixeleye Industries.

Singer Hansi Kürsch states: "Since our WWW Virtual Wacken Performance, "Violent Shadows" threw a massive, already overpowering shade on the expectations of The God Machine. We were pretty aware of the effects that the number would develop. The message is quite clear in my opinion: We're able to go straight forward! With the single release you get a very concise impression of the album's precision and intensity. Just one more thing: Everybody who thinks that the wait for the remaining five songs isn't worth it, is completely wrong! Every single song is a firework and shines even brighter in context. Remember my words, enjoy 'Violent Shadows' and pre-order The God Machine. Today, September 2nd's already yesterday.

The more measured parts, where drums and guitars slow down are badass. Hansi's great, as always. Based on the singles released, I'm expecting a solid 7/10 or 7.5/10 album and that's good enough for me. The Bards have given us plenty of masterpieces over the decades, I don't expect them to deliver another Imaginations or Somewhere Far Beyond ever again, but as long as they are still putting in effort, I'll be there to support them.

Damn. How the mighty have fallen.
I haven't enjoyed anything they've done after imaginations. I saw them live a few years ago and they didn't even play their best songs (I'm alive, Journey through the dark, Script for my requiem).
I did enjoy this one though but it might be just nostalgia
