RIYL: Shellac, Hot Water Music, Melvins
Label: Spartan Records
Demons is theÂ product of Zach Gehring, guitarist/singer of Mae, but his new sound is far from anything you’ve heard from his other group. Following Demons’ ferocious 2015 EP on Spartan Records, the band returns with their debut full-length, Embrace Wolf, nine blistering songs exploring a spectrum of anxiety, aberrations and awe with deliberate recklessness. Pounding drums,Â unpredictable guitar riffs, intense lyrical treatmentÂ and structure descending into abstraction, the sum of these parts is difficult to classify with any direct comparison. Shellac? Queens of the Stone Age? David Bazan? Melvins? While sonic or attitudinal traces may exist, Demons remains derivative of nothing.
Spartan has 2 pretty slick colorways to choose from.Â The pink and black striped variant, limited to only 100, is pictured above.Â The splatter wax, limited to 200, is pictured below.Â Check out the lead single and grab a slab after the ‘buy’ link.
