Well here goes Im not that good at reviews but I'll attempt to give a good overview of the gig which started off with Dave waiting for a first bus at leek bus station,catching the no18 bus to hanley and from hanley the no32 Bus to Kingsley holt making good use of his newly aquired bus pass, (Sorry Dave couldnt resist) no seriously though heres the set list for starters.

Wonderland
Blackheath
Fill Your Head With Rock
Sign Of A Madman
Standing On The Edge
Pray
Remembrance Day
Nowhere To Run
The Spell
I still Believe
Night Of The Demon
Dont Break The Circle

with an encore of

Life On The Wire

despite some problems during the sound check with with rain getting onto the stage and some doubts about whether the gig would go ahead due to safety issues,all was well with Dave in fine voice the gig started off in a different way to what weve come to expect with wonderland instead of either Night of the demon or the Plague.

This time around the sound system was great not the usual average sound system Dave and co get stuck with on many gigs,Demon sounded like a band on a mission A mission to get a gold medal and I can tell you without doubt they would have got that gold medal by a long mile I was worried at one point I was going to lose my hearing they sounded that good lol.

After Wonderland came the old favourite Blackheath we were then given the first of 3 new tracks from Unbroken the explosively loud and heavy 80's heavy that is a real foot stomper Fill Your Head With Rock Im predicting this will be a great stadium anthem to get crowds going,Next came Sign Of a madman and standing on the edge followed by another track from Unbroken this time Pray, for those who are able to make the next demon gig your in for a real treat this is another headbanger, Stomping drums and bass combined with real heavy guitar and powerful vocals from Dave.

The audience loved every minute of it with some headbanging one lady was even dancing round like this was woodstock in the time of flower power,Remembrance day and Nowhere to run followed both tracks went down very well the band playing a very tight set so far this was to continue with the spell and shortly after the last of 3 tracks from Unbroken the newly released Single I Still Believe

Night Of The Demon came next with the usual audience participation and followed by Demon iconic athem and greatest hit so far the classic Dont Break The Circle,after which the band started to leave the stage to chants of we want more from the crowd we got got more in the form Of Life On The Wire. To sum up this was without doubt a mind blowing,headbanging,true rocking,deafeningly stunning performance from Demon had I missed this gig It would have been like losing a leg.

It Was also great to meetup with band members and other Demoniacs Ive not seen for a long while and catch up on things, my apologies to rick for not introducing myself to you Neil did point you out to me but my short term memory is not so good when I finally manadged to get around to coming towards you I forgot which person was you Old age creeping in I think lol. My Apologies for the lackluster review Im not that good at these things






Very Happy

READ MY SIGNATURE YOU IDIOT FOR WANT OF BETTER WORDS I HAVE INVISIBLE DISABILITIES DO NOT JUDGE WHAT YOU DONT UNDERSTAND OR CANNOT SEE Evil or Very Mad just for your info there are 2 different meanings of the word Pray one is prey which is for something you hunt down or pray meaning the act of praying or havent you learnt that in school

A word to the wise think before you post, your lucky its me your disrespecting in that post I am an extremely tollerant person many others are not, so watch what you say you may regret it some Day. Even I have my limit you just stepped over it big time

We all know that Kevin, but the Demon song is 'Prey' I have believe - that's all I meant.

As usual, words A LOT stronger then anything I have written, but that's OK from the Demon camp isn't it?

Qoute:from Giles

'Tnx' <-- wow you are lazy


This is what I was refering too thats the 2nd time you refered to me as being lazy as I said watch what you say and DO NOT MAKE ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT OR JUDGE THINGS YOU DO NOT SEE OR UNDERSTAND, Also while were at it this is NOT from the Demon camp its from me never blame others for things they havent done now let this negativity end once and for all & no I havent missunderstood you I understood what you were saying perfectly well.

Yes you are rather incoherent and inarticulate arent you Giles I have to give you credit for admitting to it well done now unless you wish to start something positive for a change I suggest you leave the gene pool its obviously too deep for you.

I think that is the most ludicrous post I have ever read - in every way; it's illogical, unreasonable, senseless, incoherent, inarticulate not to mention grammatically and punctuationally farcical. It's too bad to respond to.

'Leave the gene pool'? Is that a nice way of saying leave the pond life?

Sorry i've not been around my laptop died and i've just got it back from acer today!

We had an absolute blast, it pissed it down almost all day but no way was that going to stop us, the rule was if you needed a piss you bought a round and we stuck to it, Kaz (the missus) who thankfully was on water said we stormed past the 40 pint mark, Andy and Grol had an arse kicking comp while carrying loads of beer and burgers back, the bands were superb, a special mention should go out to "round in circles" i think they were called they were nothing short of cracking.

Demon ruled the night of course, it was kinda cool that we had time to have a proper natter (even though I probably didn't make much sense)


We'll catch up again soon, hopefully back in Cyprus.

Neil Kaz just said she missed her small t-shirt and you should fly down for a week and bring it..

OH yeh goudg at some point I remember saying Alright mate as you wandered past with the cam, but as you will have read we were all proper wankered and wouldn't have made much sense.

When we left the venue, we all got lost (we only had to walk a mile to the b&b) Andy and grol found a pub with karaoke, me and kaz went mountaineering in the rain for hours.
