:: Heart Of Our Time ::    

Origin unknown, 1985
by Paul Elliott


A naked woman stands in Africa, tall enough, if she rises onto the tips of her toes, to take the moon in her palm. One glance at this cryptically symbolic cover is enough to brush aside pre-set notions of Demon as grim and grisly rockers. Their name is hugely inappropriate to their music.

No significant change has occured since I last heard the group via 'The Plague'. Thoughtful though occasionally ponderous, emotional though frequently overblown, Demon aren't likely to cough up a classic, but it's still gratifying to hear intelligence at work in rock.
