Music: Demons & Wizards
Demons & Wizards is a Heavy Metal supergroup formed by Hansi Kursch of Blind Guardian and Jon Schaffer of Iced Earth, 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 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 Uriah Heep album of the same name.
