Demons & Wizards - "The Gunslinger" (lyric video)

Στα τέλη της προηγούμενης χιλιετίας ο Hansi Kürsch (των Blind Guardian) και ο Jon Schaffer (των Iced Earth) δημιούργησαν τους Demons & Wizards. Το όνομα του project είναι εμπνευσμένο από τον δίσκο (και το τραγούδι) των Uriah Heep που κυκλοφόρησε τον 1972.

Το 1999 κυκλοφόρησε το ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο της μπάντας και έξι χρόνια αργότερα ο δεύτερος δίσκος των Demons & Wizards υπό τον τίτλο "Touched by the Crimson King". Έκτοτε χάθηκαν τα δισκογραφικά ίχνη της μπάντας, η οποία όμως παρέμεινε -επισήμως τουλάχιστον- ενεργή.

Εν έτει 2019 οι Demons & Wizards επαναδραστηριοποιούνται κι εστιάζουν σε τρία μέτωπα: α) συναυλίες (το καλοκαίρι θα δώσουν αρκετές), β) νέος δίσκος (αναμένεται στις αρχές του 2020) και γ) επανακυκλοφορία των δύο albums. Τόσο το "Demons & Wizards", όσο και το "Touched by the Crimson King" θα επανακυκλοφορήσουν, μέσω της Century Media Records, στις 7 Ιουνίου...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Demons & Wizards are back! On June 7th, the two highly acclaimed albums “Demons & Wizards” (1999) 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.

The expanded editions will feature liner notes by Hansi Kürsch & Jon Schaffer as well as bonus material and will be released as Limited Edition Digipak, Deluxe 2LP with Etching & LP-booklet as well as digital deluxe editions.
