Demons & Wizards Release First New Song in 15 Years, “Diabolic”


Demons & Wizards, the long-running power metal outfit featuring Jon Schaffer (Iced Earth) and Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian), have unveiled “Diabolic,” the lead single from their first new album in 15 years. 

Hansi Kürsch states: 

“‘Diabolic’ for sure is a musical statement and its message is very clear and precise: We take no prisoners! We had a hard time figuring out a proper opener to III, but when ‘Diabolic’ took shape, we realized it was the perfect introduction to the album!”

Jon Schaffer adds: 

“This song is a sequel to ‘Heaven Denies’ and it is dark, heavy, vicious,melodic, and totally atmospheric, everything I love about songwriting and making records in eight minutes! ‘Diabolic’ has the right attitude to make a strong statement as the first song that people will hear after 15 years!”

III comes out on February 21, 2020 via Century Media; pre-order here.
