Demons & Wizards is a [[Music/HeavyMetal heavy metal]] supergroup formed by Hansi Kursch of Music/BlindGuardian and Jon Schaffer of IcedEarth, who originally became friends when their bands toured together. "Demons and Angels" was suggested by Schaffer's wife as a description of the difference between Schaffer's demon-like guitar and Kursch's angel-like singing. Kursch disagreed and said it would be more accurate to describe him as a wizard. Also seen as a reference to the darker, theology-inspired subject of most Iced Earth songs as compared to the more [[HeavyMithril swords-and-sorcery]] style of Blind Guardian. In general, the music is written by Schaffer and the vocals by Kursch, though some of the guitar solos were done by Jim Morris. Their music tends to be fairly dark, aggressive power metal.

Not to be confused with the UriahHeep album of the same name.
