or go to their label’s Blind Guardian profile at www.nuclearblast.de/de/label/music/band/about/71036.blind-guardian.html Blind Guardian was founded in 1984 by André Olbrich (guitar), Hansi Kürsch (vocals, bass), Marcus Siepen (guitar) and Thomen Stauch (drums), (left the band in 2005, replaced by Frederik Ehmke). Before calling themselves Blind Guardian, the band released two demos under the name Lucifer’s Heritage in 1985 and 1986. Blind Guardian has always been inspired by the fictional worlds of fantasy writers such as J.R.R. Tolkien, Michael Moorcock, Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman as well as traditional legends and epics. Stephen King’s Dark Tower series has also been an influence on the band, evident in “Somewhere Far Beyond” as well as numerous Demons & Wizards songs. Over the years, a running theme has developed associating the band members with traveling bards. The line-up has been the same since 1988, but in 2005 the drummer, Thomas Stauch, left the band due to the direction the band was taking in their last studio albums, “Nightfall In Middle-Earth” and “A Night at the Opera”. He was replaced by Frederik Ehmke. Read more about Blind Guardian
