Demon Head – Demon Head / Winterland


Demon Head – Demon Head / Winterland
Levitation Records – 2014
Rock, Doom, Proto, Seventies, Psych, Blues
Rated: ****

A seven inch that sounds like Orange Sunshine or Santa Cruz has taken on a new identity once again. But this is not the case. Demon Head hails from Copenhagen, Denmark and sounds as wild, colorful, lucid and acidic as anything Guy Tavares might serve us. The five-piece has a highly occult sounding edge that is as proto as they come and on the two tracks that make up this seven inch; they display a definite feel for ancient lust and dubious mystical atmospheres. Think of Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats, Witchcraft, Pentagram and a steady classic rock band and you get the idea. Based on the blues of yore and with enough Day-Glo guitar colors to psych out even the maddest goat staring biker the two fuzzy, analog and lo-fi tracks are simply mind warping. Fine riffs indeed and with a vocalist that haunts and enchants with its soulful wildness and romantic drama, the music seems to whisper dark secrets in your ear and there is no escaping the fact that these cats are in it for the pure love of it... Demon Head, it gets in your head, heart and blood…
