Noble Demon is the rising power-house of heavy Rock and Metal music founded in 2019 in Germany. Former Nuclear Blast head of digital sales Patrick Walch is running the brand new record label with support of former Napalm Records PR expert Mona Miluski’s agency All Noir and the product management and back office of UCM.ONE for the purpose of providing major level structures and support for both established and newcomer acts in the heavy scene.
New signings to the young roster are high class names such as the Melodic Death Doom project Dawn of Solace, Colombia/US Death Metal unit No Raza, Swedish Black Metal masters Night Crowned and established Swiss Thrash Metal band Gomorra, with many more to be announced soon.
The following bands are already part of the “Noble Demon tribe“:
Dawn of Solace
When Before The Dawn (short: BTD) was preparing to record 3rd album ”The Ghost” Tuomas Saukkonen realized that he had over 30 songs written. First idea was to simply make an double album for BTD but some of the material written started to sound too slow and dark for BTD style and Tuomas Saukkonen decided to push that darker direction a bit further and form a completely new project called Dawn Of Solace (short: DOS).
Debut album ”The Darkness” came out in May 2006 featuring BTD vocalist Lars Eikind on clean vocals and Jukka Salovaara on guest vocals and solo guitar. After the release several issues with label forced the project to go on a hiatus for undefined amount of time.
It took 13 years and 14 written albums until an idea of a song came up that ignite the flame to bring Dawn Of Solace back from over a decade of rest. Time took care of the issues with labels and legally band was free but 13 years had not taken away the crushing sadness that inspired the debut. After the floodgate opened the writing process for the album came really easy and fast and most of the music has been composed during the final recordings as a rather free stream of thoughts instead of a result of carefully planned and long timed pre-production. Waves came out to be a honest picture of the current times for its writer. Grey, heavy and dark but still sorrow carrying certain beauty and strength.
New album features Mikko Heikkilä (Black Sun Aeon, Kaunis Kuolematon) as vocalist taking over all vocal duties and Lars Eikind (Before The Dawn) as guest vocalist in one song. With Lars Eikind also Jukka Salovaara appears on the album as guest solo guitarist for 2 songs completing the circle with the debut album.
In the frozen part of Europe’s northernmost realm, a new slithering seed is festering at the heart of the Swedish scene — known as Night Crowned. A spawn formed from an unholy communion between the current and the previous members of the underground elite such as Dark Funeral, Nightrage and Cipher System, this infestation is set to grow from a rumored disease into a full-scale pandemic.
Night Crowned’s musical vision is as clear as it is haunting and putrid; a reawakening of the sounds dormant from the most influential acts and masterpieces of the Scandinavian ‘90s, despite having advantages of a cutting edge, surgically precise production. Despite hatching a combined catalogue of over fifteen full-length albums, the seasoned and battle-hardened veterans of Night Crowned are still hungry like a gluttonous monster to procreate the dire melody charged blackened death music.
There will be no warning. No antidote, and no remedy. At first you will feel nauseous, then your body will be covered in black boils, and finally both your mind and matter will have been thoroughly infected by the blight that is … Night Crowned.
No Raza is a Death Metal band formed in 1997 in Colombia, South America, now based in Florida, USA. Its amazing staging recreates the desolation of a world at war and the disposition to struggle of those who guard the truth to defend our ancestral cultures and defend what remains of a sick dying earth and demands justice and peace, to those who bring us under a power snatched from our hands.
No Raza has shared stage with worldwide known bands in great festivals and tours in many different countries like Mexico, UK, USA, Colombia SA.
No Raza has stood out for their impressive live shows, charged with a visual atmosphere, aesthetic and sound evoking the ancestral essence and the South American indigenous cultures, likewise their videos with high level productions have led them to win several awards as in MTV 3 Dallas, USA, Mexico and Colombia. No Raza will keep working hard and intense to achieve higher positions among other great bands, doing what they do best “Death Metal”!
After the internationally successful Burning Witches, Gomorra are another musical “export hit” from the alpine republic, because Gomorra always mixes up the heavy metal scene.
The line-up consists of experienced and virtuoso thoroughbred musicians who have already celebrated their first successes with bands such as Gonoreas and Atlas&Axis. With their songs they do a kind of balancing act between heavy, power and thrash metal. The productions will be performed by and with V.O. Pulver are recorded at Little Creek Studio (Destruction, Burning Witches, Nervosa…) and therefore always sound fresh, dynamic and powerful.
Forming in 2017, S.O.R.M are a hard rock/heavy metal act from Lidkoping, Sweden with the band members Micke Holm (Guitar and Vocals), Johan Ostram (Bass) and Robin Wernebratt (Drums). S.O.R.M confirm its place as an act capable of appealing to a wide heavy music audience through the bands merging of contemporary and traditional hard rock and heavy metal.
In 2018 S.O.R.M gained the attention of leading international US heavy music agency Extreme Management Group, leading to joining a roster that features high profile acts such as Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation and Misery Index. Shortly after joining EMG the band released a stand alone single for the outstanding ‘Demon Child’. In 2020 the band signed with the label Noble Demon and is due to release the debut album in late 2020.
