DAMIENMETAL/ ROCK & ROLL
.DAMIEN BAND HISTORY AND BACKGROUND: No exact date has ever been pinpointed, but some time during the close of the 1970's and the beginning of the 1980's a powerful metal group formed in Toledo, Ohio - they called themselves DAMIEN. Influenced by some of the greatest bands of their day, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, UFO, Scorpions, CLICK FOR MORE
With the lineup solidified, the band regularly blew away club audiences with their live shows and established a cult following in Toledo and around northwest ohio. The word about DAMIEN continued to spread like wildfire and lead to their being signed by Manager David Preschel and he got the deal with New York’s SELECT RECORDS. In 1987 the band went into the studio and finalized the 10 tracks that would eventually become their debut masterpiece, “Every Dog Has Its Day”. The album was well received by metal fans across the globe and two years later in 1989 they created yet another killer album entitled, “Stop This War”. The band shot videos for each album that got regular airplay on MTV and HeadBanger’s Ball, exposing them to a larger audience and allowing them to headline their own tours. The band was featured in many of the top metal magazines at the time and did some concerts with Yngwie Malmsteen, Quiet Riot, Overkill, and Slaughterhouse. DAMIEN members parted ways in the early 90’s but re-united in 2004 to headline a few reunion concerts. In 2005 the band is now playing more regularly and there is talk of a new album in the works!
DAMIEN’s metal music features an awesome blend of power and speed that can’t be ignored. Their songs are intricately constructed with thoughtful lyrics and ballsy choruses that are infectiously catchy. The band blazes on all cylinders with world-class guitar solos, crunchy rhythms, thunderous bass lines, and pounding drums that is heavy metal at it’s best
