Killer New Metal from Night Demon

Night Demon Single Review

More than twenty years ago, I hosted a late night 80’s Metal Show on our college radio station in the mountains of Western Virginia. Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Dio, Krokus, you know the stuff; I loved it then and still do today, and when I hear one of those tracks it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside… then I crank up the volume and start banging my head against the wall. Ah, sweet memories.

So, as I write this, and nurse my throbbing head, I do so with a smile plastered on my face, courtesy of Southern California’s Night Demon. The Ventura band’s aggressive new single, “Killer” evokes strong memories of all that was good in 80’s metal. It’s a catchy complete song with just enough rough edges to make it real and natural, and a song that absolutely demands to be played loudly.

The song immediately grabs you by throat with a scorching opening guitar riff, quickly followed by frenetic bass and powerful drums from Dusty Squires. Bassist and lead singer Jarvis Leatherby’s powerful vocals are gritty, yet absolutely easy to listen to, and Brent Woodward tosses in a few killer solos. Check the song out below and let me know what you think:

The trio is set to release their debut album, Curse Of the Damned on January 27, 2015 via Century Media, and if “Killer” is any indication of what to expect, hard rock fans are going to be pretty damn happy.

Rock On!
