Demons & Wizards, the band featuring Iced Earth vocalist and guitarist Jon Schaffer alongside Blind Guardian vocalist Hansi Kürsch, will release their first new album in 15 years titled III on February 21. You can check out the new song "Wolves in Winter" above, which is one hell of a driving track with some seriously epic bits.
"I'm not sure why the title of this song came to me so strongly when I wrote and arranged the music. But it certainly did," said Schaffer. "I even put the wolves howling part on the pre-production demo before I had written any lyrics or heard any vocal melodies from Hansi.
"It is about embracing the beast that lies within us all. At any rate, it's a cool song with a big hooky chorus. My favorite part is the verse riff, though. It just sounds heavy and intense, and you can't go wrong with that combination."
