Additional notes
Marcus Siepen had a more active role in Blind Guardian's early days, co-writing a good part of the material and contributing as a lead guitarist. He progressively relinquished these roles to Hansi Kürsch and André Olbrich, however he still shares lead guitar parts live with the latter.

Thomen Stauch left in 2005, after 20 years with the band, claiming dissatisfaction with the direction the band had taken on the last two albums he had played on.

Oliver Holzwarth was for all intents and purposes the fifth member of Blind Guardian from "Nightfall In Middle-Earth" until his departure in 2011, but was never officially added to the line-up in case Hansi decided he wanted to start playing bass again.

Twilight Hall Studios is the band's own studio. It was originally in Krefeld, the band's hometown, but later moved to Grefrath.
