    Since Holger send me various UNICORN and LIVING DAYLIGHT songs from time to time I thought I would start a thread where I post these songs.
    I am pretty sure he's also willing to answer some of your questions.

    Let's start with these tunes for you to enjoy:

    Unicorn - The Bard's Tale "Gelidia"(from Demo, 1988)] [+]


    Living Daylight - Titan on his Kness (from Lost Paradise, 2000) [+]


    Living Daylight - Inside of Me (from Lost Paradise, 2000) [+]


    Living Daylight - Every Breath You Take (from Late Back, 1999) [+]

    Here is a song by the former UNICORN guitarist Dr. Sergej Derks.
    He sings and plays all instruments on this song entitled "King of the Southern Cross" (recorded in the 90's). [MP3]

    "King of the southern cross" actually blew me away, weird avant-garde-metal sound, but is so damn good, is a shame the production limits the quality. The musicians you've been posting in this thread are so unique in their work i say it again, i don't know how didn't they make it any further.

    Sergej looks just like i thought he would look like.

    And WTF Holger, that bad was your relationship with blind guardian? i didn't get the eyes washing part, though it doesn't sound too good, they didn't even bring their own equipment to the show?

    Oh he told you that too, i got hit hard by it, might sound stupid but is the truth, i got real sentimental, i've never seen them live and to be that close to something that deeply related to the band is a big thing for me. @Strappado i know that if you're that much of a blind guardian fan as i am, you might feel the same, it's just that you're too viking to express it.

    Yes he told me, actually he sent me a long story about UNICORN which I am reading as we speak.

    Well about this BLIND GUARDIAN thing.. I mostly feel sad for UNICORN for being the obscure band today..
    Holger and the guys introduced so much stuff to BLIND GUARDIAN, I mean BG didn't even know what
    LORD OF THE RINGS was before Holger and Jürgen told them...

    Hell, BLIND GUARDIAN may have UNICORN to thank for what they are today.
    This is at least how I see on it.

    This is ofcourse not the full story (I won't go public with it, it's Holgers call if he want to contribute with more details)

    You just made the experience even better with what you told me swede, i mean i thought he only inspired "The bard's song" and now you're telling me they (Unicorn) actually lead them to their lyrical direction and even to their epic middle earth/ dark fairy tale medieval sound, wow, i completely agree with you, is a shame we didn't see more of Unicorn. And i hope Holger agrees to share the rest of the story, i'm dying to know more about it.
