An uprising force on the stoner doom scene, Italy’s DEMONIO is a power-trio in the grand tradition of classic Electric Wizard. Fittingly, their sound is just as scuzzy and desperate as that band’s pioneering works in the ’90s. But by virtue of geography, DEMONIO have more than a touch of the Giallo as set forth by domestic icons Goblin, Death SS, and Black Hole before them. DEMONIO may be strictly within the stoner doom idiom (or at least offer a more garage-rockin’ iteration of such), but that doesn’t mean they don’t exude their own aura – and loudly/darkly.
To date, DEMONIO have released an album in 2021 – Electric Voodoo, so far only available digitally – and the three-song Black Dawn EP earlier year, also only digitally. Criminal to say the least, HELTER SKELTER felt duty-bound to release these tomes of Satanic panic in one package, hereby titled Electric Voodoo of the Black Dawn, CD. Totaling 54 minutes, the collection is the first time these two records will be available in physical format. Whether it’s your first time injecting their black drugs or you’re already a heavy user, Electric Voodoo of the Black Dawn is a perfect blackout (re)introduction to DEMONIO’s charms.
