Everything about this album is a few levels above what they have produced previous. There is purpose in the delivery of the songs, Hansi Kürsch singing with a higher level of commitment than I have heard him do for a while. John Schaffer´s arrangement for songs and the aura surrounding the same are blistering throughout the album.
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!
Demons & Wizards featuring Jon Schaffer (Iced Earth) and Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) have announced details regarding the group’s highly anticipated upcoming studio album. The worldwide release of “III” has been set to February 21st, 2020 through Century Media.
