5.0 étoiles sur 5 Power Metal Classic 6 mars 2013
Par Joe Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
If you like Iced Earth or Blind Guardian you will like this collaboration. There is strong songwriting throughout, and the "White Room" cover is pretty good. They don't get fancy with it, they just make it a little metal.

The riffing isn't quite as fast as you might expect if you know John Schaffer's other band, but it's as heavy as you'd want. Hansi is a god as always.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Stunning power metal supergroup 12 juin 2007
Par Justin G. - Publié sur Amazon.com

Every once in a while, the stars align and the two musicians with their own distinct styles are brought together to create some truly incredible music. I'm not necessarily likening Iced Earth guitarist Jon Schaffer and Blind Guardian vocalist Hansi Kurisch to Lennon and McCartney, but in the world of progressive power metal, their Demons & Wizards collaboration is a pretty big deal.

Demons & Wizards represents the best elements of both Iced Earth and Blind Guardian, bringing together the blazing guitar riffs of the former and the fantasy elements and signature vocal style of the latter. The result is a sound that is equal parts early (translation: good) Metallica and Uriah Heep. The band's name is even taken from Uriah Heep's legendary Demons and Wizards album. This is a powerful metal album. Toss out the chanting intro and outtro tracks and you're left with 10 great metal songs that are on par with just about anything either Blind Guardian or Iced Earth has recorded. Schaffer is riffing like mad here, and Kurisch's vocals are emotional when they need to be ("Fiddler on the Green") and always powerful (every other song).

Demons & Wizards is an instantly memorable album, and one you'll want to revisit time after time. It deserves a spot near the top of anyone's list of the best modern power metal albums, and is an absolute must-have for all fans of Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, Tad Morose, Brainstorm, Gamma Ray, or any other modern power metal band.

Edition Notes: The limited edition version of Demons & Wizards comes in a nice digipack and features one bonus track, a blistering cover of Cream's "White Room". If you don't already own this album, you should definitely try to find this version. If you own the standard version, you might want to consider upgrading (I did), especially if you're a fan of interesting cover songs.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 This one has to grow on you. 11 février 2005

3.5 stars. At first, the lead vocals seem completely out of context with the heavy riffing, but then I think I got the idea behind the music. The theme, it seems to me, is one of perpetual Dark Fantasy. That is why upon initial spins this CD sounds a bit jarring and uneven. But there is definitely something eerie beneath the mystical acoustic guitars, aggresive thrash riffing, and dark lyrical content. As far as this CD sounding like either Blind Guardian or Iced Earth, if pressured into a response, I would have to say it is more Iced Earth with only touches of Blind Guardian(mostly the vocals). The sound was initially unnatural to my ears, being a fan of both of the aforementioned bands, and I found myself yearning for these guys to take the music one way or the other. However, what they do here is take another road altogether, mixing their unique talents to create something I was not expecting at all. This is the kind of CD that needs to be listened to many times in order to be appreciated in full. "Demons and Wizards" is ultimately neither Blind Guardian nor Iced Earth, but is instead a new mixture resulting in an interesting and intriguing creation. If you plan on purchasing this CD be prepared in mind to hear something unusual.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Iced Guardian or Blind Earth? 3 janvier 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is exactly what I thought it would be: a perfect blend of Iced Earth's shredding guitars and Blind Guardian vocals. Take both bands and imagine them combined with a splash of something magical that isn't on any albums by either band, and you have Demons&Wizards. 'Fiddler On The Green' stands out as the centerpiece of the album, the cover centered around it's story, but all tracks really hammer you on this one. There's spine-chilling acoustic passages, melodic vocals (along with heavy crunching ones), power metal shrieks where needed, but nothing to make the cat squeal. All in all, a perfect blend of these two bands; they really pulled this off, making it unique in the process. If you like both bands: get this right away, so you can be ready for the next one! I can't wait. ...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I want another Demons & Wizards album! 14 avril 2002
Par Andrew J. Sydlik - Publié sur Amazon.com

Two of the best musicians in metal - Hansi Kursch of Blind Guardian and Jon Schaffer of Iced Earth - have come together with phenemonal results. This album simply kicks [but], energetic and yet melodic, spiritual and yet dark. Those who say this album offers little in musicianship must have not listened to the album very much. Some people don't like Kursch's vocal style - I can see why some might say that, even though he's a great singer, the sound of his voice might put some off. But in the way of pure instrumentation, this album is permeated by talent, melody, and power.
1. Rites of Passage / 2. Heaven Denies (10/10) The first track is just a minute long chant-like intro, which kicks into the blistering guitar of Heaven Denies. This is a great song, with guitar that seems to strum at a million miles a second. The lyrics are dark, and, which should be obvious from the title, about the guilt associated with Christianity. Ends in a medeival sounding chant, even with some latin ("spiritus sanctus").
3. Poor Man's Crusade (10/10) Another anti-Christian song, about the bloodshed and guilt associated with it. More heavy guitar, with a catchy chorus.
4. Fiddler on the Green (10/10) Starts out very melodic, with acoustic guitar and melodic singing, then after about 3 minutes some heavy but doomy guitar comes in. Great melodic song, with a really emotional feel to it.
5. Blood on My Hands (10/10) This is my favorite song on here. The lyrics seem very spiritual and pagan, it's a heavy song, with a catchy chorus ("By the ancient spirits rise / The old ghost will claim their lives / But still they're lost in time").
6. Path of Glory (9/10) This is a slower, more melodic song. Good, but somewhat sub-par.
7. Winter of Souls (8/10) Another slower, melodic song, this seems to have medeival-oriented lyrics, about kings and whatnot. A good chorus, but this song doesn't captivate me like the others.
8. The Whistler (8.5/10) Another melodic song, somewhat good, but still doesn't catch my attention.
9. Tear Down the Wall (9/10) Ah, after those melodic songs I get some heavy guitar again. This doesn't quite have the energy as some of the others, but it's still good.
10. Gallow's Pole (8.5/10) A heavier song, but the power still seems to lack a little.
11. My Last Sunrise (10/10) Another darkly spiritual song, starts out slow, acoustic guitar, nice singing, then comes the blistering guitar, with killer lyrics - "Golgotha - saw nothing more than a carpenter's death / Golgotha - nothing more maybe not even that." I love how dark this song is.
12. Chant - Just a minute long outro.
13. White Room (10/10) This is an awesome cover of the classic Cream song.
Ok, so there might be some "iffy" songs on here, but that's just because the power of some of the songs overshadows some of the others, even though the weakest songs on here are better than a lot of metal. Blind Guardian & Iced Earth similarly have their high and weaker moments, but both are awesome bands, and so is this collaboration. I want more!
