It's quite the experience watching Demons and Wizards live. They killed it, last night. If you had the chance to watch them, I highly recommend it.

Alongside, they're touring with Tyr and Lizzy Borden and overall, the whole thing was great and all 3 bands didn't seem half-assing it and they brought it with reasonable setlist from all 3 bands.

They're touring North America and got to see them here in Vancouver. So, that's my recommendation. Demons and Wizards are awesome live.

I was at the Vancouver show last night as well. Absolutely awesome night. The Demons & Wizards guys look like they're having a blast onstage together. Must be a nice breath of fresh air for those dudes.

If any of the remaining shows are coming to you, definitely get out there and catch it. It's not to be missed!

Got to see the Wacken stream and it was a lot of fun. Wish they were coming closer where I could go see them.

GODDAMN IT. I want to go to the toronto show SO BAD in like a week, but I just cannot pull it off financially. I'm gutted because I know they probably won't tour North American again. (If it took 20 years the first time....)

to anyone fortunate enough to go, enjoy it for me. I watched the live stream from Wacken and it seemed fucking amazing.

Literally hours away from seeing them and been blasting them all day. Thanks for getting me even more stoked!

In addition, one of the biggest highlight is Demons and Wizards cover of "I Died For You" with Hansi Kursch on vocals. That was just incredible to watch it live. Spine-chilling stuff. That is something worth to look forward to.

It's so weird hearing Hansi doing Burning Times.

I really want to go up to Chicago for it but the prospect of driving there and back home to go to work the next morning is exhausting. Already did that for Sanctuary earlier this month.

He's doing bass the whole time. It's a little weird. That being said, they all seem to be having a ton of fun with it and the sound was great.

Yeah that is my issue. A 5 hour drive both ways. Only do that for a Saturday show.

Do you think people would miss his, ummm, highly distinctive style of, err, playing power chords?

Too bad their closest date is 8 hours from me... :( At least Slayer is coming within 1 hour of me, which is pretty cool! Hoping to at least catch BG on their next tour. Being in the boonies sure sucks for concerts, though. xP

I almost went to the show last night in SLC. I like Tyr a bit - not a favorite, but they're good - but I watched some live footage to get a sense of the energy they'd bring and they're pretty boring from what I've seen. A lot of dormant guitar playing, little headbanging etc. It's ok - I' saving my money for Evergrey Next Friday.

I think it's ultra-weird relinquishing guitar duites to the songs you've been playing for 30 years. as to your irony, Marcus' right hand is peerless. not even Andre' can play those rhythms as well live...

And yet, I reckon that Schaffer will manage just fine. As good of a player as he might be, he's also never really had many interesting parts in BG - not really his fault, they're not a band with a heavy rhythm guitar focus. Also, I guess that's part of the fun; seeing Schaffer play these songs.

Yeah what the heck? D&W is super rhythm focused.

to be fair, he was referring to BG, but still... there's plenty of meaty riffs under the 150 vocal tracks and the orchestra :)

If I wasn't jetlagged as hell I would be seeing them tonight. The encore is my 2 favorite D&W songs!

Just saw them last night in Chicago and had a blast. I'm really happy I was able to make it, Hansi killed it as always, and I really enjoyed Tyr too!

Saw them in the summer and although I am not a big fan of the band (I am mostly a fan of three or so of their songs, with Fiddler on the Green being the obvious highlight) they were very enjoyable. Hansi was on fire, Jon was having a blast and is tight as fuck and the rest of the guys were having a lot of fun, as already mentioned. I went with very low expectation but really had a great time.

Whooooo that was great~
Lost my shit at Blood On My Hands in the encore, waited for it all night (I knew Fiddler had to be there) and I wasn't sure if it was coming.

Hansi is so damn on point, holy fuck. If it weren't for the Iced Earth songs and the occasional ad-libbing I'd almost think he was cheating with a studio recording.

Also... apparently Montreal is so awesome that we got an extra song :hyper:

Yes that's the one :lol: So did they play it in other cities or nah? I don't see it in the entries for other cities for setlist.fm and the band said it was special for us, but I wasn't sure if it was just banter or what
