INTERVIEW: Blind Guardian

Arriving early during the immensely deafening but hugely enjoyable Gloryhammer sound check, we made our way backstage at one of Manchester’s finest venues The Ritz to sit down with the mighty Blind Guardian ahead of what was to be a blistering 2 hour set that night. Talking all things Guardian past, present and future, you can watch the whole thing below and lookout for our review of the show (spoiler, it was bloody magical) in the coming days.

ALBUM OF THE MONTH-MAR '17

Artist - Jesters of Destiny
Title - The Sorrows That Refuse to Drown
Label - Ektro

Thirty years after Jesters of Destiny arrived, dropped Fun at the Funeral and disappeared back into the night, they’re finally back with a second full length release courtesy of Ektro Records, and whilst it could never live up to first album, the eccentricity of the band shines through once more and it’s a crazy ride from start to finish. Pick it up on April 4th!
