Time what is TimeWhat is time?
This is the forth recording of Somewhere Far Beyond by Blind Guardian, the powerful Germany based heavyweight metal group. Andreas Marschall was responsible for the art work on the covers and designed the art work for other Blind Guardian's publications (Tales from the Twilight World, Nightfall in Middle-Earth, etc.). Recorded on the record, the group saw their own originals create while still using most of their speed/power metals skills.
Because of the covers and the two "Bard's Songs" the bands was nicknamed "The Bards". Use of the alias was also expanded to the group's supporters, with Circle of the Bards being the now non-existent Fanclub and Hansi often referring to the supporters as Bards. A part of this piece also comes as part of the main theme, this time on a different kind of bagpipes.
It was celebrated by powerful metall enthusiasts all over Europe and especially in Japan, so they were able to go on tours outside Germany for the first time. Touring the Far East resulted in the band's first ever full-length debut in Tokyo Tales. Re-mastered and re-released on June 15, 2007 with bonustracks.
It has been re-released and also re-mixed and re-mastered as part of A Traveler's Guide to Space and Time Boxsets. 19 The first bonustracks are included on all publications except theinyl-LP. All of these are included in the new 2007 edition, although they are not included as reward track.
