Demons & Wizards’ first album in fifteen years, III, will finally arrive next Friday (21st) via Century Media. Today (14th), the collaborative project featuring Iced Earth’s Jon Schaffer and Blind Guardian’s Hansi Kürsch have unveiled a music video for the song “Wolves of Winter.” The clip is once again directed by Ivan Čolić and produced by iCode.
“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. 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.”
“‘Wolves in Winter’ is definitely a tune, you want to hear live and even more than hearing it, you want to sing along with it immediately. Feel free to rehearse in front of your speakers!”
