"Consisting of Nate Young (Wolf Eyes) and Steve Kenney, Demons explore near-epileptic fits of droning synth textures that elicit comfortable remembrances of electronic-obsessed forefathers like Stockhausen and Cluster whilst simultaneously bludgeoning forward with the grating and scraping atonal complexities of Whitehouse and Throbbing Gristle. Having already rallied a fervorous flux of supporters with discomforting psychedelic multi-media performances and a slew of cryptic releases, among them this years fetishistic Life Destroyer box set, Evocation is an appropriately elaborate and accomplished approximation of their shrewd identity. Subterranean analog rumbles compete with laser-sharp extraterrestial blasts and hums, both contrasts birthing an ominous hallucination of impending dread. The four pieces here fixate into an almost narrative concoction, forming an abstract portrait that feeds its murky sonics into perplexing vibrations that force one forth into their path just as much as they delight in crafting intriguing unease. With artwork contributed by the duos frequent visual collaborator Alivia Zivich, Evocation, which happens to be Demons first CD release, is as apt a proper declaration as any, seamlessly crafting their steady and intricate synth-scapes with the darkly psychedelic images such creations naturally elicit within the psyches of attentive devotees." - No Fun.
