NIGHT DEMON Announces ‘Live Darkness’ Triple Live Album Release; Live Video With MIDNIGHT’s Athenar Debuts


(By Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Senior Writer/Journalist, RiffRelevant.com)

August 10th will see the release of a triple live album from NIGHT DEMON – in partnership with multiple global-wide record labels – titled “Live Darkness“.

Those partners will include SPV/Steamhammer in Europe, and Century Media Records and Shadow Kingdom Records in the USA. This resulting live offering is the culmination of non-stop activity from NIGHT DEMON, such that has garnered countless accolades and other recognition for the band.

Their 2017 release, Darkness Remains, stacked up several prestigious designations including 2017’s #1 Album Of The Year from Deaf Forever. Germany’s Metal Hammer magazine recognized Night Demon with an award for the best “Up & Coming” band, as well as an invitation to perform at the 2018 awards show in Berlin.

NIGHT DEMON have incessantly toured for the album, on their own headlining runs, tours supporting Accept and other greats, plus numerous festival appearances. Those include Wacken Open Air Festival, appearances at the Bang Your Head and Rock Hard Festivals and of course, NIGHT DEMON‘s own Frost & Fire in their hometown of Ventura, CA.

On December 2, 2017, in the band’s adopted second home of Cleveland, OH, NIGHT DEMON – Jarvis Leatherby (vocals/bass), Armand John Anthony (guitar), and Dusty Squires (drums) – performed to a packed house at Beachland Ballroom. The entire show was recorded and now sees the light of day as Live Darkness, NIGHT DEMON’s first official live document.

One highlight of that night’s performance was NIGHT DEMON‘s lethal rendition of Midnight’s “Evil Like A Knife,” featuring a guest appearance from Athenar himself. The live video clip of the performance is streaming below.
