Touched By The Crimson King

Demons & Wizards is as you all probably know the collaboration between Hansi Kürsch - Blind Guardian, and Jon Schaffer - Iced Earth. And "Touched By The Crimson King" is their second effort, and this review has to be one the easiest ones I've ever written, because this is the perfect blend between these 2 bands ... and all fans of either band can buy this album without hesitation!

50 minutes of great music - 9 songs of their own creation and a good cover version of Led Zep's "Immigrant Song" is on offer. All the songs have Iced Earth's heavy riffs and melodies and combines them wonderful with the powerful vocals and bombastic choirs of Blind Guardian. You won't find a single bad song on this album, and I suggest you check this cool album out...
