Great band who didn't (and still don't) to the heavy metal norm. Classy songs with great melodies and a singer who sounds more Joe Cocker than Joe Elliot. Well worth checking out.
Demons first two al;bums are classic NWOBHM fayre, and are two of the best records of that era. Then we get to their classic material The Plague, Breakout, British Standard Approved etc, mixing the classic NWOBHM sound with what would laterly be called prog metal. Demon have to be one of the most influential bands of the whole era (and remember people NWOBHM was a movement NOT a genre - and yes Priest and Motorhead are great bands, but they are NOT NWOBHM.. Both were well established before the term was coined (by Sounds writer Malcome Dome) in March 1979) - jonwisbey
Legendary NWOBHM act, the first two albums with are classics of the genre.
Certainly the best band I have heard..the music sounds great even now..
Great versatile nwobhm band, just give"id rather go wild" stab in the back or"give em hell a twirl Magnifico!
So damn underrated. Its an atrocity that these guys never made it big. They are the essence of heavy metal
Iron Maiden is the best but this band deserves to be WAY higher on the list. I'd put it in the top five easily
They have a whole catalogue of awesome songs
They aren't NWOBHM.
Really simple: not NWOBHM
They CREATED metal, thry were the first and best metal band
They don't belong to this list - Rocker00
The best debut album by all the NWOBHM bands, followed by Angel Witch and Iron Maiden.
Lady of mars, say no more!
You can't miss Their "One of these Days". The Riff is so catchy, I can listen to it non stop.
Trespass is just about as popular as the following statement gleep glarp gloop shabalabadingdong
