Demonstration- Existence CD
  Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $6.70
THE DEMONSTRATION hail from the now legendary North Carolina hardcore/metal scene, which has spawned numerous greats acts such as BETWEEN THE BURIED & ME, GLASS CASKET, BELOVED, PRAYER FOR CLEANSING, HE IS LEGEND and CATHARSIS so you can imagine the difficult task ahead of them as they try to become the next named added to that prestigious list. Despite their youthfulness they have already been paying their dues playing countless shows across the south east and following an impressive demo release in 2005 they enlisted producer, Jamie King (BTBAM, BELOVED, KILLWHITNEYDEAD, GLASS CASKET, etc) to record their debut for Tribunal Records. After several months of rag-tag sessions the band emerged with Existence, which for the band's debut is a stunning collection of progressive metal infused hardcore. THE DEMONSTRATION is technically proficient and melodically fueled but able to deliver a crushing breakdown now and again (more often then not!). Unlike many of today's! young bands THE DEMONSTRATION haven't lost or abandoned the art of songwriting and ability to deliver a striking metal "riff" for the sake of faux complexity or bland commercial appeal. Building upon the established strength of their songs THE DEMONSTRATION also enlisted a few guest vocalists to help enhance the already engaging material. Shawn Pelata (of LINE OF FIRE) was brought in to deliver the melodically charged chorus found in "Anecdote." While M KWD (of KILLWHITNEYDEAD) and Josh Albright (of QUELL/ MALEBOLGIA) were there to add some variation and depth to the death metal assault already found through out Existence's nine tracks. THE DEMONSTRATION is here to prove that North Carolina's hardcore/metal scene is still vibrant, creative and ready to conquer all.
