Jon Schaffer interview on German Rockhard magazine:

Quote :
Demons & Wizards: Jon Schaffer and Hansi KŁrsch are working on a third album

DEMONS & WIZARDS want to launch another album, as guitarist Jon Schaffer ( ICED EARTH ) confirmed. Together with BLIND GUARDIAN -Frontmann Hansi KŁrsch , Schaffer is working on new material for the third record of the project:

"We're going to take the time, but we're really going to tackle it, so I hope we can release it next year, hopefully we'll be able to complete the entire songwriting this year Busy, I'm very busy - but at least we're making progress, for the first time in twelve years or so. "

So while it's still way off, why not start a little hype already. Anyone a fan? What did you think of the first two?

The first two were great. Lots of fantastic songs on them. I'll pick this one up when it's finally released.

Loved the first two, esp. the debut. Jon and Hansi bring out the best in each other.

It's been forever since I listened to either one of those D&W albums. I'll have to break them out and give them each a fresh spin to see if they spark any interest in a third.

Seeing how my interest in both Jon's and Hansi's respective bands have waned in recent years, I doubt a new collaboration between the two will excite me to the point of purchasing another. But who knows? Stranger things have happened.

I haven't listened to them in a while, but it's a cool project. I need to revisit them soon. Did they do any touring for the first two albums?

I own the first album and am familiar with the second. I'm rather curious to hear how this new one comes out.

Just saw this:

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/blind-guardian-frontman-says-fans-will-be-surprised-by-next-demons-wizards-album/

"As for what fans can expect from the next DEMONS & WIZARDS album, Hansi said: "You will be surprised, I'm sure. These first two [songs] we've worked on, they are quite interesting. I'm really looking forward to spend some more time and getting deeper into the subject. Because even though ICED EARTH and BLIND GUARDIAN are quite similar in many ways, Jon and I are, songwriting-wise, different persons and by coincidence and pure luck and probably by friendship, the chemistry is pretty good once we are together. And what comes out is a blend of these two bands, which [one] would expect, but there's something more. And I like to go for this something more."


Hansi also sounded very optimistic about the possibility of DEMONS & WIZARDS live performances in support of the upcoming album. He said: "That really depends on how fast we are with BLIND GUARDIAN, obviously, and how the schedules will be worked out. But it would be a shame not to do so, at least being on the road for a festival season and doing some smaller club shows, for example, just in betweenÖ There should be a gap, and we are working on this gap. It would be a waste not to do so."

i am really interested in new music but the "You will be surprised" gives me pause. That is when we end up with Pink Bubbles Go Ape.

The ultimate symphonic concept album that ties both bands' concepts together:

Something Wicked in Middle-Earth. A double album with 80 tracks and 100 minutes worth of interludes mixed in between 7 or 8 songs.

Will probably get this.

Touched by the Crimson King - one of the best, catchiest, ripping metal tunes ever.

Update:

Another thing I was really thrilled about is reading that youíve started working on a new Demons & Wizards album with Hansi KŁrsch of Blind Guardian. How did it come about?
Jon: Weíve been talking about that for years, but now we actually made the commitment to do it. And we started working on it. Itís always been really tough to get our schedules to line up, but weíre going to do it. I canít Ďsay when itís going to be finished, weíre really early in the process. And now Iíve got a new record coming out and Hansi is doing on the classical record, singing in the studio. I hope by 2018 or 2019 at the latest weíll have the record finished. Weíve done two songs and they are pretty cool. Iíve got another instrumental piece to send over to Hansi to work on.

Like I said, whenever he can get to it. Itís hard for me to get into the songwriting mode when Iím bouncing back and forth to Europe. This is my fourth trip to Europe in six weeks. Itís pretty intense. So itís hard to get into that, that meditative state to get connected to the music. I want to make the Demons & Wizards album killer, so I want to do it right. So itís probably going to be when I have longer holes in the schedule so I can focus on it. Because if I only go home for a week, Iím not going to be in songwriting mode. I canít just turn it on like that.

So, where is the album going music-wise looking at those new songs? Youíve both matured as songwriters since the last album.
Jon: Itís so early, I canít tell you where Hansiís going to go lyrically. Thatís his department. I help him when he needs me to, and Iíve written the lyrics for a couple of songs. In terms of music, itís actually pretty different but I know that there will beÖ Itís me and Hansi, itís going to be the next step. Itís going to be completely authentic, I can tell you that. Iím looking forward to seeing what it sounds like too.
