NIGHT DEMON ‘LIVE DARKNESS’ DOUBLE ALBUM RELEASED AUGUST 10TH
“Californian axe-wielders Night Demon are young dudes dedicated bone-deep to the galloping bass and soaring harmonies of the long lost New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. Why sound like 1979 if you don’t have to? Because 1979 was pretty goddamn magnificent when it came to all the things hard and heavy, as evidenced by the Maiden-esque chug of ‘Hallowed Ground’, the Motörhead-y thrash ‘Maiden Hell’ or the Sabbath-soaked neo-doom of ‘Stranger In The Room’. For most, Night Demon will sound new and vital, and they ought to. Pure headbanging bliss.” Sleazegrinder, reviewing ‘Darkness Remains’, in Classic Rock, July 2017.
Mighty Californian classic metal trio Night Demon proudly announce the release of their double live album ‘Live Darkness’ on SPV / Steamhammer on August 10th as a 2CD DigiPak, triple 180 gram red vinyl gatefold LP (with printed inner sleeves + CD in cardboard case), download and stream.
The last year has been a whirlwind of activity for Night Demon since the release of their second album ‘Darkness Remains’, to feverish acclaim in April 2017. Night Demon garnered stellar reviews in publications and webzines all around the world, with writers hailing ‘Darkness Remains’ as a buy-or-die old-school metal record breathing new life into the timeless NWOBHM sound.
Fueled by these plaudits, Night Demon hauled in top honours in various year-end polls and lists. The readers of Germany’s Deaf Forever magazine voted ‘Darkness Remains’ their #1 album of 2017; likewise, the listeners of the WCJU ‘Metal on Metal’ radio show in Cleveland, Ohio, voted ‘Darkness Remains’ the album of the year by a landslide, effortlessly beating out more than 80 other nominated albums. In September, the German Metal Hammer magazine recognized Night Demon with an award for the best “Up & Coming” band, as well as an invitation to perform at the 2018 awards show in Berlin.
As any seasoned fan will tell you, Night Demon strike hardest and burn hottest in a live setting. Befitting their road-warrior reputation, the band have already logged well over 100 performances worldwide in support of ‘Darkness Remains’. In addition to headlining the ‘Darkness over Europe’ tour and their first-ever dates in the U.K. and Ireland, Night Demon spent five weeks in Europe supporting revered German metal masters Accept in January and February 2018.
