few modern bands embody the true spirit of heavy metal as well as Savage Messiah, whose dogged perseverance, passion and conviction harks back to the hard graft of metal’s masters of old. On the band’s fifth full-length album ‘Demons’, due this spring, this has never been more evident. Vintage bullet-belt influences meet modern metal with 11 new songs that will feel as much at home on the airwaves and playlists as reverberating around sweaty mosh-pits. Since releasing their debut studio album INSURRECTION RISING (2009) the Brits have gradually infused their unrelenting modern thrash attack with strains of melodic US power metal, topping their neckbreakingly precise riffs with fierce hooklines and anthemic choruses begging to be screamed back at the band in sold out stadiums. After making four albums with Scott Atkins in the UK, Savage Messiah enlisted renowned producer David Castillo [Opeth, Dimmu Borgir, Soilwork] for the recording sessions of DEMONS at Jens Bogren’s Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. As a result they sound more condensed and to-the-point than ever before, while still maintaining the urgency to evolve. Besides crushing singles “Under No Illusions“, “What Dreams May Come“ and “Down And Out”, prepare to get to know yet another side of Savage Messiah with their heavy cover of Grammy winner Chris Stapleton’s country-rock hit “Parachute”. Available as 180 gram vinyl LP + CD, Standard CD and digital album.
