Mini Bio (1)

Even though Hansi Kürsch's parents were not wealthy enough they bought him books such as "The Hobbit", "The Silmarillion" and the Lord of the Ring trilogy, for Christmas and other holidays when he was a child, and later he developed an early fascination for fantasy and specially J.R.R. Tolkien's work. As a teenager he became a fan of heavy-metal, not much later he formed Blind Guardian. Since Blind Guardian's early records the mix of Fantasy and Metal were the core of Blind Guardian's personality. Responsible for part of the complex yet heavy music of Guardian, Hansi is the mastermind behind the band's lyrical themes. He used Tokien's imaginary constantly (the best example is the conceptual record Nightfall in Middle Earth) yet Hansi shows interest in authors such as 'Stephen King(I)' among many others and historical events. He is an open-minded musician who frequently appears as guest for other bands such as Angra (2004's Temple of Shadows) or even Argentinean thrash metal combo Nepal (1998's Manifiesto) and the list is much longer.
