Blind Guardian vocalist Hansi Kürsch assures: “This song is a statement about Blind Guardian. The pure definition of all that the band stands for: it is innovative, melodic and brutal.” And thus a perfect choice to get fans into the proper mood for the upcoming album.

Twilight of the Gods is about the deities’ waning power and “it will captivate you with the most epic and catchy chorus we’ve ever written,” says Kürsch.

The single will be available in three formats:
