A magic musical match-up 25 octobre 2002
Par Just Bill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
People who say Demons and Wizards sounds like Blind Guardian meets Iced Earth aren't listening closely enough. This musical match-up of IE's Jon Schaffer and BG's Hansi Kursch is magical in a way that's hard for me to explain.
I'm a fan of both bands, and respect the talents of both musicians. Yet, neither creates music like this.
IE's music is intense, sometimes brutal that borders on the blatantly angry. BG's music is also intense, but in a more lyrically optimistic way.
On one hand, a friendship between Jon Schaffer and Hansi Kursch seems unlikely. Schaffer has never been accused of being a starry-eyed dreamer. And Hansi isn't known for seeing the glass half empty. Yet, these two musicians bonded on their first tour together many years ago...and now regard one another almost with mystical reverence.
On this, their first collaboration, Schaffer and Kursch achieve synergy -- a magical blending of styles that draws upon the foundation of both bands, yet transcends each.
Frankly, Schaffer's guitar work never sounded better. And Hansi's voice -- an acquired taste to some -- is at its melodic best.
My favorite track is "Fiddler on the Green," a song that arose from two real-life tragedies in Hansi's life. (In case you didn't know, the CD's cover graphics are based on the story line of "Fiddler.") This song has poignant lyrics, killer guitar work (both electric and acoustic) and stellar vocals from Hansi.
If you're a fan of Iced Earth and/or Blind Guardian, Demons and Wizards is a must-have.
If you aren't familiar with those bands, yet you like well-played metal with a lot of nice vocals -- not to mention the aforementioned element of "magic" -- you should give Demons and Wizards a try.
If you like what you hear, you'll be pleased to know that Schaffer and Kursch are working on the next Demons and Wizards album -- an album that will surely top my wish list for 2003.

THE side project, and one of the best of 2000! 30 mars 2001
Par The Wickerman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Being a huge fan of both Iced Earth and Blind Guardian, I have been very eager to get this album. Well, it is definitely a great album, but perhaps not quite as good as I thought it would be. Either way, it is quite amazing. Jon Schaffer's riffing is, as always, godly, and Hansi's over-the-top vocals add a melodic twist to the crunching heaviness. "Fiddler on the Green", "Blood on my Hands", and "Path of Glory" are my favorites. The transitions from acoustic melody to thrashy heaviness is killer. Mike Prator hits us with some incredible kick-snare drumming, the likes of which we heard on "The Dark Saga". Oh, and I had no idea that Jon could play bass, not that he's all that great at it. Why didn't Hansi just do it, he is a bass player! As great as this album is, there's something about it that's just...off. I don't think Hansi's voice quite matches the dark and heavy nature of the music, whereas Blind Guardian is more anthemic power metal, which suits him better than the thrashiness of Iced Earth. It just seems like he's trying to comform to the sound, and he doesn't shine quite like he does in BG. Sometimes, it appears he's even trying to sound like Matt Barlow, and the attempt falls flat. Another thing is that the lyrics are kind of weird, and at times surprisingly violent. For instance, "Poor Man's Crusade" ends with the line "Let's kill them all", and "Fiddler on the Green" is an eerie tale of a little girl being murdered, with the line "her body smashed, her beauty's gone". It doesn't feel like Blind Guardian or Iced Earth. But, maybe that's better.
It may sound like I'm putting this album down a bit, but it is really great, although I think there should have been a bit more soloing in it. It was one of the best albums to come out last year, along with Iron Maiden's "Brave New World", Nevermore's "Dead Heart in a Dead World", and Jag Panzer's "Thane to the Throne". I recommend checking out stuff from Iced Earth and Blind Guardian before you pick up this, but a fan of either band should not be without it.

What A Rare Find ! ! ! 7 décembre 2005
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I am 43 years old and listen to AC/DC, Black Sabbath ect. I've checked out lots of new bands on the internet through the years and have never found a single one worth buying, until now. I paid to download both of Demons & Wizards albums and after listening to the excellent side efforts from these two most talented musicians I had to order the actual CD's here through Amazon. I downloaded two albums each from Iced Earth and Blind Guardian and though the music was ok in my old rock opinion it is not even close to Demons & Wizards. I only hope these two guys remain friends and realize what a wide range of people they are reaching. Please give us more of this excellent music in the future.

One of the Top 10 Albums of All Time 15 mai 2001
Par John Swartz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
It's hard to convey perfection by describing the merits of an album through the written word. As a Heavy Metal listener I bought this album as a result of the recommendation of a friend. At first I hesitated. "Demons & Wizards? Never heard of them." I later realized that it was a collaborative effort by the frontman of Blind Guardian and the guitarist of Iced Earth. I was vaguely familiar with these bands, perhaps having heard a song or two in passing without much thought or worry. When I played this for the first time it blew me away. It was the first album I've purchased in the past five years that I have actually moved to my personal top ten list. It is that good. I popped the CD in my car while driving home from a rough day at work and happened to have my attention diverted from the road to "Fiddler on the Green", a dark and melodic tale about the Grim Reaper or "Death" and how Death realizes how he is prone to make mistakes as well and can feel sympathy for his victims, especially if they are young children. The first three or four times I heard the song it sent chills down my spine during the segway from atmospheric acoustic guitar work, to heavy rock at its finest. There is not one filler or bad song on this album, and even includes a bonus track of "White Room" by Cream, strutting the band's scope and complexity with their unique and faithful take on this classic track. If I was stranded on a desert island with only one CD, this incredible work, without question, would be the one I keep my sanity with.

Blind Guardian meet Iced Earth 16 octobre 2004
Par Mr D. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Being a fan of Hansi Kursch, Blind Guardian's 'Queenish' style singer, I was compelled to give Demons and Wizards a try. Though I've only reviewed one B.G. album and that was only a single, (and one of my best reviews if I do say so) "And The There Was Silence" is a fabulous fourteen minute masterpiece and one of my top ten songs if not top five out of a library of fifteen thousand songs and counting, so don't misunderstand me, Blind Guardian is, in the immortal words of Billy Crystal, "Marvelous". Once you get used to them that is.

What do I mean by that?

Well, Blind Guardian music is very busy music. They play a Melodious, Symphonic brand of metal whose music explodes at you and bombards you with multi-faceted ingenious melodies from all sides in fact it is so dense with layer upon layer of sound and with all those high pitched voices coming at you constantly from all over, that ones brain cannot absorb it all at one time. It needs time put everything in order, so that is why I recommend at least five or six plays to get used to their music.

So why am I talking about Queen and Blind Guardian?

I guess it's because Blind Guardian, who sounds a little like Queen is half of Demons and Wizards. Which half I don't know. The other half is Iced Earth an Floridian Trash/Heavy Metal band of some note, which admittedly never appealed to me much until their last release, The Glorious Burden, which is so good I can't seem to get it out of either of my car stereos.

With a pedigree like that you'd think Demons and Wizards would be a slam dunk (did I hear that somewhere before?) five star review, right? Well not quite. As with Blind Guardian it took some getting used to, so I played it over and over until it grew on me, however though it grew on me, I still prefer straight Blind Guardian and Demons and Wizards though very good is not as good as Glorious Burden. Don't get me wrong this is a quality recording with the ten actual songs averaging 4.4 stars. The main thing is this album needs to be listened to. Like Blind Guardian it does not work as background music.


After a brief intro ("Rites of Passage") the first song "Heaven Denies" sets a fast tempo with heavy drums with speed metal and the usual Blind Guardian vocal sound, however it dissipates as the song swings to a slow ethereal pace subsides at the three minute mark. A very nice touch!

The fourth track "Fiddler on the Green" starts with Hansi singing a slow folk sounding song with a nice melody and then at about the 3:40 mark the intensity starts to blow you out. This is like a reverse of "Heaven Denies" though not as fast and is followed by the upbeat "Blood on my Hands" a straight forward medium fast number with a catchy beat and a pleasant melody with Hansi and the usual background vocals.

A very nice introduction is followed by a variable tempo piece that is most representative of the classic Blind Guardian sound on the seventh track, "Winter of Souls". Another nifty varied tempo song, "The Whistler" follows again with familiar Hansi vox and backups accompanied by moderately heavy drums and guitars.

"Tear Down the Wall" is another variable speed number, which gets better as it goes. It starts out slow but it eventually warms up with a galloping beat and great vocals. Track ten, "Gallows Pole" is, in my estimation, the best song and the only five star number, though others are close.

It starts with Hansi's vox being electronically altered quickly switching to a hard rock sound but with a great refrain and melody.


Overall I'd say that Demons and Wizards leans more toward Iced Earth as far as heaviness is concerned but is fairly melodic and busy, as you might expect from Blind Guardian.

It should be noted that this album is a side project of good friends, Iced Earth's Jon Schaffer and Blind Guardian's Hansi Kursch. Some other band members and a couple guest artists joined in but not the full compliment of both bands.

Demona and Wizards is an interesting collaboration of two popular bands, Heavy Metal Iced Earth and Symphonic Metal Blind Guardian. I'd like to hear more from these guys!
