Interview – Studio session with Kai Hansen
During the recordings session for Follow The Blind album Hansi got some small
interviews. There are one from them for Metal Hammer magazine.
...important message from metal underground stand material for following interview. What
happend? During short visit at Karo studio Münster arise decision: new Blind Guardian
album see featured Kai Hansen.
His coaction you can hear on two tracks. More information betray Hansi Kürsch /bs,voc/...
Specifically Kai´s work rised from songs Hall Of The King and Valhalla. On both tracks
he recorded guitar solos, besides he sing break /pre-chorus/ and backing vocals on
Valhalla. All recording event we did close during one afternoon.
It was one-shot action, sure. Kai Hansen continue...
Kalle Trapp (producer) and me, we have relationship extended time already. Besides I
hear something about Blind Guardian. Debut album this band somebody through the
discuss compared to old time Helloween album Walls Of Jericho, particularly in the case of
singing. Sure, I was inquisitive to the band. But after the experience with the band in studio
I have to say, in reality they have with old Helloween not so much common things, even
though played speed and melodically. But from all new comer bands they have parallel
nearly to the big bands. The same comparison received old Helloween when all simulacred
us to Iron Maiden.
Second Blind Guardian album take the name Follow The Blind. There guys from Krefeld can
confirm their better musically craft. They played during last year over twenty live shows and
did gather practice. During the second album recording session they demonstrate these
experiencies. Now they know more than during the Battalions Of Fear recording session
1988. Hansi continue...
I consider more well thought out and grown-up new tracks tna tracks from Battalions
album. Some new tracks taken quickly tempo too. Besides self-created songs new album
contain one cover song from sixtieth´years (I don´t disclose) and I think many peoples will
be surprised by new album.
Supply only, Follow The Blind album released by No Remorse Records again, up to end of
March or at beginning of April.
