Breath of the Demiurg
Released: 2007, Mascot Records
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall
Demiurg is a new project from Sweden lead by Rogga Johansson (Paganizer/Ribspreader). Johansson plays guitar and sings, Johan Berglund is on bass, and the notorious Dan Swanö is on drums and keyboards.
Johansson and Co. thrash through 10 songs which all feel well-played. It’s obvious that a lot of time has been put into the music and lyrics. It all sounds like what a great old-school Swedish-style metal album should sound like. Of course, Swanö produced, mixed, and mastered the album, and yet again the magician has done a magical production. That man just can’t fail when he’s in the producer chair; there’s no doubt that he’s one of the best producers in Europe when it comes to metal and harder music.
There’s nothing more to say about this debuting act; they have written a solid metal album with songs that last for several hours. The material is high-quality and it’s neatly performed by excellent musicians. BREATH OF THE DEMIURG is a given purchase for any old-school metalhead.
