Demons & Wizards Premiere New Song “Midas Disease”

Demons & Wizards, the band featuring Blind Guardian’s Hansi Kürsch and Iced Earth’s Jon Schaffer, have premiered a new song titled “Midas Disease.” This track is from the group’s new album “III,” which will be released on February 21.

Kürsch commented:

“Meanwhile, you all should have heard the epic ‘Diabolic’, and as second impression of ‘III’, we offer you the complete opposite now: the four and a half minutes of ‘Midas Disease’! The song reminds me of one of these good old hard rock bands, playing on and on for more than 40 years, I guess you’ll know whom I refer to once you hear it. ‘Midas Disease’ has a cunning vibe, which I absolutely love. It is pure honesty.”

Schaffer added:

“I had a working title of ‘Unbroken’ for this song, and when I sent it to Hansi, he instantly liked it. We both feel it added a totally different dimension to an already very diverse album. It’s straight-up fists-in-the-air hard rock/heavy metal song, which was certainly inspired by the riffing and rhythmic abilities of Malcolm Young and I personally dedicate it to his memory. You are missed, Sir Malcolm!”

Demons & Wizards Premiere “Diabolic” Music Video

Demons & Wizards, the band featuring Blind Guardian’s Hansi Kürsch and Iced Earth’s Jon Schaffer, have premiered a new video for their new song “Diabolic.” This track is from the group’s new album “III,” which will be released on February 21.

Kürsch commented:

“‘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.”

Schaffer added:

“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.”
