Demons & Wizards

Demons & Wizards
Played at Graspop Metal Meeting


Power Metal




Iced Earth guitarist Jon Schaffer and Blind Guardian vocalist Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) not only share common musical interests but they’ve also been close friends for over 20 years. In 1999 this resulted in a side project called Demons & Wizards and the following year the new partnership released their eponymous debut, effortlessly combining Iced Earth’s dark heavy metal with Blind Guardian’s power metal. Five years later the illustrious duo repeated this tour de force on ‘Touched by the Crimson King’ before a continued collaboration was shelved due to busy schedules. Then in 2018 rumours started flying that Jon and Hansi had found the time to focus on Demons & Wizards once more and start recording album number three. Demon &Wizards are a must-see, not just for IE and BG enthusiasts but for fist-pumping heavy metal fans in general. A special treat!! (#GMM19)
