Demon Dogs / Press

"The Others" kicks things off on a high note with its galloping opening riff, calling to mind the trademarked riffing style of Iced Earth. The band does not really slow things down from here. Demon Dogs also features members of Coven and Midnight Idols, so these guys are no strangers to putting out hard-driving metallic anthems. They certainly pull it off on this EP. About the only disappointment that I can think of is that "Howl", which is posted on the band's website, did not make it onto this EP. This is unfortunate because it is probably the most dynamic of the five songs I have heard from this group. This is a very short, but very enjoyable EP. There are only four songs here, but the energy is infectious on it. Each of the songs is catchy in its own way. This is a very promising debut release from a new band. I look forward to seeing what Demon Dogs will come up with next.

“Demon Dogs, Demon Dogs (out now, self-released, demondogs.org): Old-school metal that worships at the altar of Iron Maiden and Mercyful Fate, hitting all the requisite notes, including double bass-drum patterns, harmonized guitar riffing, and soaring lead vocals.”
