THE BLACK HEART, LONDON
Danish rockers DEMON HEAD  are yet to make a huge impact in the somewhat over-saturated world of retro rock. That may soon change. New material such as eP
The Resistance brings in some 80s death rock touches and a sense of dramatic tension that sees them mixing a touch of In Solitude with early Witchcraft, yet sounding very much like themselves. We expect great things of album number four, due out this year.
NIGHT  evolved from mid-80s metal to last year’s well-received
Raft Of The World, which draws heavily on early Priest and accept as well as late-70s heavy rockers like Triumph and – as evidenced by vocalist/guitarist Oskar andersson’s fine moustache –
Ted Nugent. Treating The Black Hearts’s modest stage like it’s Texxas Jam ’78, the Swedes aren’t backwards in coming forwards. They throw big shapes to go with their big riffs and have both the songs and confidence to pull it off. Yet more proof of Sweden’s metallic pre-eminence.
