New album officially announced: https://loudwire.com/demons-wizards-iii-album-2020/
Not the most original title, but the artwork looks cool. I love the use of the Notre-Dame cathedral towers.
Also, 65 minutes instead of around 50 for the two first albums, so we can expect longer song(s).
Some new snippets.
At 2:04 we can hear Harvester of Souls, which his a reprise of At the Edge of Time with different lyrics, a darker mood, and a few added parts.
Here's the English translation someone posted in the comments:
1:20-1:49 You're the first ones to listen to the album. It'll be...
Here it is.
So far I've only listened to the first minute and it sounds amazing. It reminds me of the pre-chorus of Fly (which I don't quite like) but made better by a superior performance from Hansi and the presence of the orchestra.
The part at 1:32 reminds me of the outro of At the Edge of Time, which is one of my favorite moments of their discography. If we get a whole album of that, I'll be overjoyed. I just hope the novel is translated in time so we can understand the story.
Yes, they will be several interludes as Hansi...

This is a previously unreleased Nightfall in Middle-Earth song that will officially be out on Wednesday (along with a few live tracks from 2016).
At first I thought it would be a song recorded in 1997, but Hansi sounds like he does on the last album.
More info here...
Hansi had an interview last Friday on Metal Command:
- No BG live shows for the next 18 months
- There will be eleven songs in the orchestral album.
- The theme will revolve around the 17th century
- Two of the songs were composed back in 1997.
- Hansi should finish recording the vocals in...
I like how The Book of Souls mostly has long songs. I just find them more engaging than your usual
five minute rocker. It may be coincidental but TOAC is the only song I still can't get into.
The repeated parts that ruined this album for some people are justified in my eyes. If a riff is good...
