Beyond the Red Mirror is the tenth studio album by German power metal band Blind Guardian, released on January 30, 2015 through Nuclear Blast. It is the band's first album since 2010's At the Edge of Time, marking the longest gap between two studio albums in their career (being three days longer than the gap between 2002's A Night at the Opera and 2006's A Twist in the Myth). It is also their first album without former session member Oliver Holzwarth on bass guitar since 1995's Imaginations from the Other Side. "Twilight of the Gods" was released a single to promote this album. A concept album and a sequel to Imaginations from the Other Side, Beyond the Red Mirror has been described by Hansi Kürsch as "A story between science fiction and fantasy. [...] The two worlds described have changed dramatically for the worse since then. While there used to be several passages between the worlds, there is only one gate left now: The Red Mirror. It has to be found at any cost."
