5.0 out of 5 stars Rocks! I love this group! Aug. 16 2007
Format:Audio CD
Before I bought this I hadn't even heard of Iced Earth or Blind Guardian. Now I'm very glad I bought it.

I bought this when I was at my favorite store. It was on the sales rack. When I listened to it on the way home I thought it was great. Very hard rocking. I really love the very dark but beautiful melodies and mythic lyrics. Toally wicked!. Buy this CD! You will think it rocks! This band combies the sounds of Blind Gaurdian and Iced Earth so it has alot of metal and fantasy inspired lyrics. This band is very, very interesting and different. I wish channels like MTV and Muchmusic played bands like this. This band has 70s and 80s metal infulence so it would be great to have those tv staitons play something new but with an old sound.

1 Rites of Passage: One of the best intros ever! It dosen't have any words just some sort of chanting. Very cool.

2 Heaven Denies: A fast, loud song. I think this song is pretty cool and well done but there are better songs on the album.

3 Poor Man's Crusade: Another fast song with violent lyrics but a good tune. Sweet song but the next song is better.

4 Fiddler on the Green: One of the best songs on the album. A beautiful rock ballet about two childern dying, it is amazing, deep and a very good rock song.

5 Blood on My Hands: Another one of the best songs. Its very catching and has very mystical lyrics.

6 Path of Glory: Again one of the best songs. Its very up lifting and hard. Good for bad days.

7 Winter of Souls: This ones ok but not their best. Its got good lyrics but there is room for improvment.

8 The Whister: Very catchy and well writen but chours seems to repeat itself alot. The lyrics are cool but desturbing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Blend of Two Worlds Dec 27 2011
Format:Audio CD
Put Jon Schaffer and Hansi Kursch together and you get Demons and Wizards, or in other words, a stroke of metal genius. Scaffer and Barlow work extremely well together as Iced Earth, Barlow being, in my opinion, one of the most talented and diverse vocalists in the metal world. However, there are songs on this album that just would not have fit Barlow's vocals, and that's where Kursch comes in. He brings a sense of mysticalness (is that even a word?) to these songs which are as beautiful as they are brutal, if that makes any sense. Some people say that this is an Iced Earth album with Kursch on vocals, i totally disagree. These songs were written to gear more towards Kursch's unique vocal style. If you are a fan of Blind Guardian or Iced Earth or both, this is a must-own for you. If you don't like either of those bands, then there is a good chance that you won't like this either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing side prodject CD Aug. 22 2009
Format:Audio CD
If you are to get 1 CD that has Hansi Kursch in it, this is it! this CD has the amazing singing voice of Blind Guardian frontman Hansi Kursch and outrageous guitar playing from Iced earth Jon Schaffer. I am both a fan of Blind Guardian and Iced earth and think there both amazing bands to listen too, But this cd just brings out the best of both, great heavy guitar playing with amazing solos and darker/ heavier side of Hansi Voice.

After listening to the cd a good few times, I gotta say there isn't a song I don't like on it, there all amazing. My favorite songs would have to be "blood on my hands", "Tear Down the Wall", "winter of souls", and " fiddler of the green", so yeah I totally recommend this cd for any fans of Blind Guadian and Iced earth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shouda Coulda Woulda June 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
ok cheesey title. this really, in my opinion, shoulda been an iced earth album. john shaffer coulda used the music from this album, put matt barlow (former iced earth) on vocals and made an album that coulda kicked their legendary album's (burnt offerings or something wicked...either/or) ass! that woulda been a hell of a swan song for matt! i have never liked blind guardian and i think "Hans" screwed this album up for everyone. The only band thats ever been able to pull off the heavey music with a singer with a voice like hans is SENTENCED. go check out sentenced's album "crimson"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent debut June 24 2004
By Nathan
Format:Audio CD
Demons & Wizards is a side-project band featuring Jon Schaffer from Iced Earth on guitars and bass, and Blind Guardian's Hansi Kursh on vocals, with Iced Earth's depressive, Power-Thrash-Metal influenced dark sound and riffs along with Blind Guardian's fantasy based melodic, True Power-Metal style. The album is neatly paced, starting with a bang with their song "Heaven Denies," but slowing down in certain places with an odd, but excellent ballad the "Fiddler on the Green" which seems to have some Celtic influences, and then just getting plain creepy with the song "Winter of Souls," which I might add has a real catchy chourse. The Gregorian choirs show up again on the last track, ending the album with an appropriately moody finish. During the recording sessions the band members were; Jon Schaffer of (Guitars and basses) Hansi Kursch of (Vocals) Jim Morris (lead guitar) Mark Prator (Drums). This is an excellent debut from this band, and if you're looking for something new and exciting, you would get this album.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Iced then Blind, somewhat disappointing June 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
When any real power metal fan hears the names Iced Earth or Blind Guardian, one can't help but have their eyes widen and say, "yea, they rule!" The idea of Shaffer and Kursch from both bands coming together would make any fan go out and by this, no questions asked. The CD cover, linear notes, and CD artwork itself look gorgeous, clean and exciting, therefore this is going to ge an incredible record - says the buyer. I myself thought all these things, but came out a somewhat dissappointed in the end.
Fans of the disc get annoyed when people simply describe the CD's music as "Iced Earth metal w/ Blind Guardian vocals." Still, this statement is more true then false. The guitars (dirty and thrashy), production (somewhat raw and electrifying), themes (religion, questioning, etc), and metal attitude are VERY Iced Earth sounding, and the vocals seems to be very Blind Guardian inspired (Choir style screams, soprano's and depthful passion). I would say though the Cd is more Iced Earth then Blind Guardian, it almost seems like this is really Jon Shaffer's idea and Hansi is just along for the ride. Guitars are structured the same as Iced Earth as well, not many lead oriented riffs, but just power chord thrashness. No symphonies or fancy production effects, or even keyboards or pianos for that matter - so if you're into epic stuff like Rhapsody/Kamelot/Sonata Arctica type power metal, this might not be your thing.
We open up w/ a quite mediocre song that opens w/ the thrash metal and vocals i described earlier, and a chorus that struggles to be good, but ultimately isn't anything worth headbanging to, or even tapping your fingers to.
