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.

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.

I would be lying to you to say this cd is a perfect buy! What it is though is a perfect combination of Blind Guardian meets Iced Earth. Hansi Kiirsch (from BG) has one of the best notable singing voices in metal and could easily be ranked in talent next to Ronnie James Dio. And Jon Schaffer (from IE) is definently one of the best and origional rythem guitarists to date. These 2 amazing people combined with a decent drummer and pretty good bassist should equal something extremely amazing nevertheless right? well, its close! There is nothing technically wrong in this cd or any out-right examples of poor musicianship, but there do seem to be alot of parts recycled from Iced Earth and Blind Guardian thrown in here, (I mean I've heard alot of the same guitars and exact lyrics from different songs by the individual bands) But there is still a greatly respectable amount of creativity put into this D and W band that should not and MUST NOT be over looked! D and W create their own atmosphere of darkness and evil with out directly referring to anything of a satanic sort, and with this they use it to tell stories involving people meeting death, people loosing loved ones, and people turning away from all hope and going into eternal darkness. Another major plus is that all the lyrics are written in a very beautiful tragic poetic way that just touches your heart even if you cannot fully understand it, and thanks to Hansi the lyrics are also sung this way too. And finally every song on here does kick ass, but if your like me you will find that you just can not listen to all of these songs at one given time, because then you would loose interest after a couple tracks and would be completley bored with it all together, because every song does have the same type of feel and it gets redundant after a while.Read more ›

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.
