Night Demon - Curse of the Damned

I love bands who seek to emulate Iron Maiden and moreover, bands who do it well. Today I bring you Night Demon whose new record Curse of the Damned is the kind of album that speaks to the crushing and frankly beautiful power that this kind of music can have. Loud, extravagant, and a blast to sing along too, Night Demon have clearly understood the formulas laid down by Maiden and have incorporated them into their own unique realms of metallic majesty. Vicious and ready to rock, their new record Curse of the Damned is something of a masterpiece.

The beauty of Curse of the Damned is in the high power riffs that groove with an easy confidence, proving that the spirit of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal will never die. These songs have a very distinct sense of drive behind them that makes tracks like Heavy Metal Heat so much fun to listen too. Despite what I said about the bands penchant for Maiden worship, it's important to note that these guys proudly sport the influences of other classic metal bands out there too. Most notably I feel Saxon-esque vibes on the songs dedicated to metal and the scene. Meanwhile, some of the crunchier rhythms are reminiscent of Judas Priest. What more could you want?

Let these tracks plow their way into your mind and through your soul. Night Demon know how to lay down some epic sounding tracks that any fan of the NWOBHM movement will have a blast rocking and rolling too. Night Demon understand what heavy metal is supposed to be about and are chief among a whole host of revival bands who seem to be swarming across the globe right now. Night Demon are going to rock you back into the 80's and by God you will love it, so let yourself get caught up in the tide!
