Daemos write metallic symphonies for the apocalypse. Their songs destroy with a driven musical violence honed through precise technical execution. The band’s EP Surfacing blends elements of classic Bay Area thrash, death metal and melodic metal into a chaotic concoction of pure unbridled sonic rage. Eric Nunes’s baritone riffs bludgeon with a bone-snapping groove. Kevin Wood’s destructive drumming and Matan Chaffee’s tight bass hold down the rhythm, while Victor Baddour’s tortured vocals and razor sharp riffs captivate.
