In a post on the band's web page, Blind Guardian vocalist Hansi Kursch promised that the band will continue working on its "orchestral project," will produce more new songs for the summer touring season, and that he and Iced Earth's Jon Schaffer will hook up to write some new Demons and Wizards material this summer. Busy guy.
Demons and Wizards is an Iced Earth collaboration project with Kursch, injecting the darker tones of Schaffer's band with the more fantastical, magical themes of Hansi's. It's really pretty awesome. They do some great cover songs too, including Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" and Cream's "White Room." Check em out.
Apparently Hansi and Schaffer discussed the future over drinks on the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise, where Schaffer was seen drunkenly stumbling around the stage during Blind Guardian's set. That video will wrap up this post and can be seen below:
"If you think there's...not...real life..in the metalcommunity...you're...you're LIVING A LIE!" Ahahahaha.
