About this album

“The Bard’s Song (In the Forest)” is a single by the German power metal band Blind Guardian, released in 2003. It contains 5 different versions of this, one of their most popular songs, which originally appeared on the album Somewhere Far Beyond.

Single’s cover art was painted by Leo Hao.

At concerts, it is not unusual for Hansi Kürsch to only sing the first and third lines of the song, then possibly the final verse or chorus, and leave the audience to sing the rest.

The song has been covered by German a cappella metal band van Canto on their album Hero.
