Demon  


Demon is one of those bands that motors along, never really achieving superstardom or worldwide fame (they are not well known outside their native England) but quietly releases quality albums that satisfy their loyal fan base. They emerged at the peak of the NWOBHM movement in the early 80's, at which time they were a bit more raw and metallic than the rest of their career. Twenty years into their career, they are still successful at what they do.
