Singer and guitarist Dave Silver, “This is the first time we’ve ever attempted to play some kind of special album launch shows, and we’re going to pull out all of the stops to make these really memorable events for our fans in the U.K.” The track is an explosive blend of frenzied riffs with anthemic choruses melded together to form an intense, melodic metal rocket.

Demons is Savage Messiah’s fifth studio album and sees the band deliver a fresh new sound that will infect ears and conquer minds. Silver describes a band reborn on the new record. “I looked at what we’ve done in the past and knew we could be taking this band way further.”

The group pursued a change of dynamic on the new record by enlisting producer David Castillo. Renowned for his work with metal stalwarts including Opeth, Dimmu Borgir and Soilwork, David produced their recording sessions at Jens Bogrens’ Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. The outcome is a an incredibly varied body of work and a huge step up from previous releases.

Joined by Carcass drummer Dan Wilding and touring drummer Ali Richardson for the Sweden sessions, the band took a spontaneous approach to developing the 11 new tracks that comprise the record.

The band will also embark on an extensive 23 date European tour supporting Symphony X, which includes a date at London’s Electric Ballroom in June. Tickets are available here.
