Hehe, don't worry, I also like Maiden, well, I love the first 4 albums, after that I kinda lost my interest in them since they changed too much in a direction that I just didn't like that much anymore, but well, they released The number of the beast and Killers, 2 of the best Metal albums of all times, they deserve respect for sure.

Yeah, Jon Schaffer of Iced Earth and Hansi Kursch (Vocals) for blind guardian have a side project called "Demons & Wizards", they got two albums out, the first one, which is self titled, and a second called "Touched By The Crimson King".

As for getting into Blind Guardian, I'd recommend the albums "Somewhere Far Beyond", "Battalions Of Fear", "A Night The Opera" and "A Twist In The Myth". They cover there history well, and shows a myriad of sound they have achieved, BUT....Any BG is worth picking up smile.gif

Nah, that's Demons and Wizards, it's kinda BG and IE. Hansi, the vocalist of Blind Guardian and Jon Schaffer, rhythm guitar of Iced Earth teamed up with some session musicians.

I suggest Touched By The Crimson King if you are interested in them. Some really awesome stuff they have too.

Mostly a studio band, but i know they have done some live shows, and i think they plan on doing some in the future when Hansi and Jon arent doing there respective things. Not sure though, these are rumors after all tongue.gif
