DEMONS & WIZARDS - Studio Report: Recording The Choirs

See Demons & Wizards work on backing vocals for their upcoming 2019 live shows.

Founded in 1999 by Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) and Jon Schaffer (Iced Earth), Demons & Wizards released two albums, Demons & Wizards (1999) and Touched By The Crimson King (2005). The band is currently working on their highly anticipated third studio album, which is scheduled to be released in early 2020. Prior to that, Demons & Wizards will celebrate a massive return to stages worldwide!

“We are finally starting to get set up for the big stages,” Hansi Kürsch and Jon Schaffer reveal. “Rehearsals have just started and everything is proceeding perfectly well. Check out our backing vocal session from the other day and don’t miss our kick off shows in two weeks from now. See you on the road!”

On June 7th, the two highly acclaimed albums - Demons & Wizards (2000) and Touched By The Crimson King (2005) - are going to be released physically again. Now, Demons & Wizards present a lyric video for the track “Heaven Denies“, taken off the remastered album Demons & Wizards, created by Scott Rudd. Watch below.
