I woke up this morning to find this email in my inbox with this outstanding announcement about Demon Lung getting signed to a major label. It seriously couldn't happen to a more deserving band. This is what happens when you're a real band and you get signed to a real label. I remember when I first saw them, playing in front of nobody, and I knew they had something special going on. I kept seeing them perform and I watched them transform into the Metal juggernaut that they are. This band deserves all their rewards and accolades, because they've earned each and every one of them through hard work and perseverance. Again, kudos to you Demon Lung. I wish you nothing else but even more success. Make Vegas Proud!! :-)
Candlelight Records has announced the signing of Demon Lung. The Las Vegas-based quartet, featuring guitarist Phil Burns, bassist Patrick Warren, drummer Jeremy Brenton and vocalist Shanda Fredrick, is set to begin recording its full-length debut in the coming weeks at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California with producer Billy Anderson (Sleep, High On Fire, Eyehategod) for a spring 2013 release.
The band commented: "We are very honored to join the Candlelight roster. To be included among such talented artists is very humbling, and we thank the great people at Candlelight for giving us the opportunity."
Metal Hammer called Demon Lung's four-song demo, Pareidolia, "earthy yet horror-themed doom Metal a la Candlemass with an Acrimony groove." The magazine called Fredrick a "wild-eyed, satanic songstress." Popular music and film site Ave Noctum noted, "Demon Lung has a deft touch and solid sound. Their Music is clearly from the Soul. Fair to say they are a welcomed addition to the ranks of the doomed." Teeth Of The Divine added, "Fredrick has the requisite sultry pipes that keep a steady, hazy tone. She has a deep, bluesy voice that fits the languid music perfectly."
Demon Lung has performed alongside Pentagram, High On Fire, Jucifer, Witch Mountain and Castle and will resume performing once recording has been completed.
How fucking sick is that, right? Again, Congratulations to ya Demon Lung! I can't wait to hear how kick ass that recording is going to come out once it's done. :-) Cheers!
