Nuclear Blast has announced the addition of a new member to the family — Blind Guardian. One of the most significant and successful international power metal bands who "reinvented classic metal for a younger audience" according to Metal Edge, the trademarked Blind Guardian experience is described as a "larger-than-life sound which incorporates the harmonies and drama of Queen with an aggressive, modern sensibility" by Billboard magazine.

Regarding the long-term signing, Blind Guardian singer Hansi Kürsch happily shares, "Our long search for the perfect record company has ended. We finally were lucky to find the ultimate home — Nuclear Blast! Some things you decide with your head, other things you deal with on a gut level. The decision for Nuclear Blast was both! We placed great emphasis on finding a partner that knows the world of heavy metal and does business in an unconventional manner, if necessary. Nuclear Blast can offer both of these key qualities, and proved so time and time again in the past.

"But this alone would not be enough, if the chemistry wasn't there, but our first meetings could only be described as: 'We came, ate, and laughed…' Our views on music in general and Blind Guardian in particular are almost identical! The whole Nuclear Blast team impressed us a lot with their unity and the huge identification with their mission and the expansion of the metal world. Now we have the unique chance to follow our musical vision in the perfect environment. We expect a lot, and so do Nuclear Blast. Let's roll! The Guardian comes home!"

Nuclear Blast label manager and A&R head Andy Siry is equally thrilled. "We are all very happy about the amount of trust Blind Guardian has put in us. The beginning of this cooperation will surely prove to be very productive and fruitful. Our distribution partners and the whole of Nuclear Blast are ready to kick ass!"
