Night Demon

Southern California's Night Demon subscribe to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" adage when it comes to metal -- who needs endless subgenres and such when good old classic metal will do? And so on 2017's Darkness Remains we've got upbeat, strongly NWOBHM-flavored straightforward metal, with clear vocals, strong choruses, solid riffing, exactly what traditional metal is all about. Nothing groundbreaking here, but these guys do the classic style better than most.

Recent album: Year Of The Demon, released on March 25, 2022.
