Demon Head is the long lasting constellation of five internationally based and widely acclaimed musicians; Mikkel Fuglsang, Birk Gjerlufsen Nielsen,Marcus Ferreira Larsen, Thor Gjerlufsen Nielsen and Jeppe Wittus. Though hesitant to compromise the description of the music they perform through generalizing terms of genre, they’ve coined the term ‘Diabolic Rock’ as an appropriate presentation.
It is important to pay attention to the journey from ‘Ride The Wilderness’(2015), a juvenile and hungry adventure exploring the boundless courage of classic rock music, onto ‘Thunder on the Fields’ (2017) turning their inspirations further towards the strange and sinister purposes of life, a tendency followed and completed on ‘Hellfire Ocean Void’ (2019), with it’s gothic and nothing but otherworldly song-writing and production. Demon Head is recognized for their uncompromising and independent practice, having written, recorded, produced, mixed, filmed, photographed, drawn, printed, chauffeured, practiced every second and every cell of the body that is Demon Head, leaving their development and growth as an organism completely free from the restraints of capitalism. What is left is a vessel, containing every possibility of collectivity, courage, rebellion, daydreaming, friendship, faint hope, clenched fists and opened hearts.
Released on January 29th, 2021 via Metal Blade Records, ‘Viscera’ is anew beginning. Recorded during the first months of 2020 between the legendary Sweet Silence Studios by Flemming Rasmussen (Metallica, Morbid Angel, Merciful Fate, Rainbow etc.) and a remote country house in Sweden, while the mixing was done by Martin ‘Konie’ Ehrencrona (In Solitude, Tribulation, Nifelheim).
The production shows the impeccable qualities of joined forces and manages to translate the intensity of the quintet’s live performances into carefully crafted studio productions, where acoustic instruments, flourishing mellotron strings, brass instruments, tape manipulation, cryptic guitar compositions, eerie vocal harmonies and pipe organ are displayed in equal measure to their already established attributions as a rock band.
Since the beginning DEMON HEAD has been touring extensively throughout Europe on their own behalf or together with acts such as COVEN, MAGNA CARTA CARTEL, SLÆGT, ULTRA SILVAM, NIGHT, ILL WICKER and played at festivals like COPENHELL, VOIDFEST and MUSKEL ROCK. They’ve been featured in magazines METAL HAMMER, DEAF FOREVER, CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE, METALIZED, SWEDEN ROCK among many others.
