Demons & Wizards - Trivia

Touched by the Crimson King is partially based on the "Dark Tower" series of books written by Stephen King, in which the Crimson King is the antagonist.
According to the musicians, the band name is meant to describe the two styles: the self-proclaimed demon-like themes and sounds of Iced Earth and wizard-like themes and sounds of Blind Guardian (The moniker "Demons & Wizards" was inspired by Schaffer's wife always referring to him and Hansi as "Demons and Angels." Hansi always corrected her that it is more properly stated "Demons and Wizards").
