Demon: Unbroken (reissue)

Vocalist Dave Hill might be the only original member left standing, but NWOBHM legends Demon are still going strong, as evident by this 2012 release Unbroken. With a line-up that now includes guitarists Paul Hume & David Cotterill, drummer Neil Ogden, bassist Paul 'Fasker' Johnson, and keyboard player Paul 'Fazza' Farrington, Demon are rocking harder than they have since their first two albums Night of the Demon and The Unexpected Guest, well over 30 years ago.

Nasty riffs, anthemic choruses, driving rhythms, and slashing lead guitars adorn heavy tracks like "Shine a Light", "Prey", "Fill Your Head with Rock", and the title track, and throughout Hill still shows he has plenty of fire left in the tank. The singer snarls on the catchy hard rocker "Private Lives", a song not far removed from some of Magnum's heavier moments, and his husky drawl perfectly complements the catchy '80s styled number "What About the Night". "Wings of Steel" and "I Still Believe" are hook laden melodic ballads, and the bonus track "Get the Hell Out of Here" is a raunchy hard rock number with some crunchy guitar work from Hume & Cotterill.

Unbroken is very solid '80s hard rock & metal, and shows a veteran band that is still very capable of delivering the goods. For those of you that might have forgotten about Demon over the years, grab a listen to this strong album for proof of just how viable they still are.
