The fourth official live album by legendary German Progressive Epic Speed/Power Metal band.
Blind Guardian has proudly carried the banner of Progressive Power Metal for over 30 years and can still hoist it high today. Band cultivated their unique sound in the mid-1980s and you can still hear that originality in their recent work. And now, the band released their first live recording in 14 years. 
The tracks included in this album recorded during Blind Guardian's 2015 European Beyond The Red Mirror Tour. According to Nuclear Blast, a total of 30 shows from that tour (on a total of 38 gigs between April 2 and June 2) had been recorded with an average length of 2 hours, 15 minutes per show. Hansi Kürsch added that they had recorded also other concerts during the worldwide tour, but the fact that the European "recordings were all already nearly perfect, was the decisive reason for us to only use songs from this first part of the tour. Even though we compiled "Live Beyond The Spheres" with songs from more than ten different shows, the result sounds really uniform. This has been a long journey but the effort was all worth it. Our fans will love it!”.
Over three hours in length, "Live Beyond The Spheres" works just as well as an electrifying greatest hits compendium as it does as the band’s third live album, but either way it’s one of the most riotously Metal records ever. Explosive and immaculate, the performances are compelling. As the Germans power their way through Speed Metal assaults like "Banish From Sanctuary" and lyrical epics like "Nightfall" and "Imaginations From The Other Side", outrageous technicality and soulful grit collide, resulting in a vivid snapshot of wise old Metal masters at the peak of their powers. The band’s capacity for making their dynamic, bombastic signature sound has influenced and inspired a humbling amount of modern Metal bands. To see such heroes on the scene still making music and performing is so encouraging and inspiring. The 22 songs on this record will only make the listener want to buy a ticket when they are in their respective towns, but it is also a great way to indoctrinate a person to these mighty bards.
"Live Beyond The Spheres" isn't only Blind Guardian's most essential release ever, but also one of the very best live records ever released! This record will make you want to attend one of the band's future concerts. If you like Epic Heavy and Power Metal, this release should be in your collection without any doubt!!
Box Set includes 4x Black Vinyls in full-colored inner sleeves and huge 12” 24-page booklet.
