Summer 2016 promises to be a defining period for everybody’s favourite denizens of hell, Demons of Old Metal. Following a storming performance at the Mosh Against Cancer festival in Coventry this April, D.O.O.M. are now gearing up for four summer festivals starting with Wildfire in Scotland on June 24th. This will be followed by their headline slot at SOPHIE Fest, Coventry on July 16th, then on to the Phoenix Alternative festival in Wales on August 13th and last, but not least, a return by popular demand to Beermageddon during the last weekend of August!
Demons of Old Metal are looking forward to adding to their burgeoning army of fans, ‘The Demonic Horde’ and have released a montage-style video for their nu-thrash classic, ‘Fakeskin’ to give potential new recruits a taster of what to expect when the band hit the stage.
The Demon express is leaving the station – time to get on board!
Formed at the tail end of 2010 by four veterans of the UK metal circuit with the sole intention of cranking out classically tinged metal and engulfing venues in a sea of blood, sweat and beers. Coupling a cracking knack for writing quality songs, their penchant for schlock horror imagery and an otherworldly stage show, DOOM set about putting together their debut record; “The Demonic Chronicles Vol I”. Released on Halloween 2012, the response from fans and the media alike was overwhelmingly positive and saw the band begin making a name for themselves.
In 2013 the band released “The Demonic Chronicles Vol. II”; a further addition to their stunning repertoire. This was followed in 2014 by the final part of “The Demonic Chronicles Trilogy” which was greeted with critical acclaim in Europe and the U.S. They proceeded to hit the road and carve their mark viciously into the psyche of the British live scene; scoring slots at Beermageddon in the UK, as well as shows in Ireland.
Simultaneously, they began work on their new record “Dominion”. Set for release on December 7th 2015, “Dominion” stands as a huge leap forward, as the band have pushed their musical boundaries and created a work that will no doubt appeal to fans of both the new and old schools. Tracks like ‘You Version 2.0’, ‘Fakeskin’ and ‘Behind The Mask’ are groove laden gems on a record full of brilliance. Tall and short of it; you need Demons Of Old Metal in your life.
