Today is the day that the 'Secrets Of The American Gods' are finally revealed, the call of the 'Blood Of The Elves' will be answered and a mysterious creature finally takes its first steps: BLIND GUARDIAN's latest epos The God Machine comes to life.

With nine stunning tracks under its wing, the twelfth BLIND GUARDIAN album has already received a lot of praise from media and fans prior to its release - including features, cover stories and top reviews in prominent magazines such as METAL HAMMER, ROCK HARD, etc.  

To celebrate this new milestone in the band's already impressive career, BLIND GUARDIAN present a video for their track 'Architects Of Doom'. The latest chapter of The God Machine is a truly hypnotizing experience that can be watched here: https://youtu.be/u60SpI8qsd4

Singer Hansi Kürsch states:
"Happy Release Day!
Finally, finally, the day has come. Good things come to those who wait... I can not imagine ever longing that intensely for a release date. You are hopefully already holding that masterpiece in your hands, assuring yourself that we didn't exaggerate with all our praise beforehand. No fillers, just killers! The God Machine is a wholesome BLIND GUARDIAN album that will sweeten your coming months, even years. It's served, bon appétit!
 The God Machine features classic speed metal anthems, epic bangers and 'Architects Of Doom'! This song is an epic wrecking ball at its finest. In my opinion, this is the best and most outstanding track of the whole record. Reinvention or a return to ancient virtues, that's the question."

The God Machine marks another pinnacle in BLIND GUARDIAN’s impressive discography by not attempting to pretend it is still the nineties yet instead 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 90’s; 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.
