Demons & Wizards, the power metal supergroup founded by Blind Guardian’s Hansi Kürsch and Iced Earth’s Jon Schaffer, headlined this year’s Wacken Open Air festival in Germany, where they treated the crowd to a stellar live performance.

Footage of two songs from the August festival performance surfaced in early December, and can be enjoyed below. Guitarist Jake Dreyer provided the blistering guitar work for “Crimson King” on his custom Jackson KV7 alongside Kürsch’s aggressive vocals.
