An often overlooked yet pivotal band in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement, Demon emerged in the early 1980s and quickly became known for their shocking and elaborate occult-themed performances. The band’s ghoulish image was contrasted by their sound, which adhered closer to traditional hard rock than the kinetic punk-metal of contemporaries like Venom and Motorhead. After the release of their first two studio albums, 1981’s Night of the Demon and 1983’s The Unexpected Guest, the band decided to take a more progressive approach. Demon disbanded in 1992 but vocalist Dave Hill formed a new iteration of the group in the early 2000s that has gone on to release a string of well-received albums like Better the Devil You Know! (2005) and Cemetery Junction (2016).
Trishula is a rather fine melodic rock band put together by most talented duo of guitarist Neil Fraser and singer Jason Morgan, two musicians with a wealth of experience between them with Morgan singing with the band Orangefall and also supplying backing vocals on Magnum’s latest album The Serpent Rings and Fraser playing and/or recording with Ten, Rage of Angels and the great Tony Mills (Shy/TNT) who, tragically, is no longer with us. So, it’s obvious to see that these two guys have unique talents and they fit just so well together, and they so obviously inspire each other to greatness.
