I was just thinking, as Live recordings these days can be done quite cheap, wouldn't it be time for a follow-up to "One Helluva Night"?

Maybe concentrating on the songs that WEREN'T on that one (of course, you've got to have NotD, Don't Break The Circle, The Plague and Remembrance Day on it though), almost like Alive II. The band could even rehearse a special set for the recording in order to squeeze all the "Lost Gems" into the set?

Some tracks that spring to mind:

Into the Nightmare
Father Of Time
The Spell
Nowhere to Run
Fever in the City (I know, but one can dream....)
Touching the Ice
Heart of our Time
England's Glory
Taking the World By Storm
No more Hell on Earth
Hold on to the Dream
Spaced Out Monkey
Get me out of here
Standing on the Edge
Takin' on the World

I'd buy it... Very Happy

OK, if we stick to 17 tracks, 'my' new DEMON live album would go something like this:

Prey (Intro)
Into the Nightmare
Nowhere to Run
Fever in the City
Spaced Out Monkey
Sound of the Underground
What do you think about hell?
Remembrance Day
Heart of our time
From the Outside
Expressing the heart
Life on a wire
Let me out of here
Hold on to the dream
Night of the Demon

Of course, i would buy it as well, but at least i think, there is no more live album necessarry, but much more public presence! Why should you release a live album if there is no audience? Go ahead with the new album. Go conquer the charts, play the big festivals, rule youtube. Nowadays itīs not at question of age or quality but a question of presence. Do it and you will win or doīnt do it and you will ...
For example, my neighbour is a priest. A few years ago he was playing as a bassplayer in a hobby-band contributing to sounds like Rammstein. He played on a festival with Bullet For My Valentine in 2006. Appears to be very easy to achieve some public attention?! I guess if Demon would ever had played as an opener for a "newby" band like this we would never had a discussion like this. So, what do you think about this?
Hey Mike, Robby Williams + Demon at Wembley would change some comments on the messgage board.

My point was/is: create the 'event' that would put you in such a position. To re-awaken (or gain new) awareness of a classic such as 'The Plague' could be the very thing to create that 'public presence' you speak of.

I would bet that Demon could book a decent sized venue in the midlands (even Birmingham Odeon!), promote it, put other bands on too as support, sell tickets for it as 'The Plague 30th Anniversary Show' and make it a success. After that, a proper 'comeback' could ensue.

I think what Giles means is that such an event and an ensuing CD/DVD release might stir up more attention than the band has received over the last years, which can only be a good thing. Whether this would work, heaven knows (and of course, it would also depend on the amount of promotion put into it).

The phrase "comeback" may sound a little strange, but I can see where Giles is coming from. Honestly, I don't think many people know that the band is still going and releasing new music, as the press/media don't care and Demon are pretty much absent from the social media networks. I remember a few years ago at the Bang Your Head- Festival, I met loads of people who were convinced that the band had split after "Hold on to the Dream" album and only reunited for the odd festival gig every now and then... they were quite surprised when I pointed them towards the then-current "Devil" album.

Having had the pleasure of seeing Demon twice in the last month (winking man & the railway) I would say that this is a great idea as they have such a different sound now.
