Demon Eye Streaming New Song “Dying For It”

“Prophecies And Lies,” the forthcoming full-length album from North Carolina occult metal collective Demon Eye, will see release via Soulseller Records on August 11th in Europe followed by a North American release date of September 8th.

Captured by Corrosion Of Conformity’s Mike Dean in the band’s hometown of Raleigh, the eleven-track burner finds Demon Eye’s fiery fusion of heavy classic rock, proto metal, and traditional doom at its most intense.

Today, the band’s latest single “Dying For It” comes online and can be heard below. Issues the band of the track, “‘Dying For It’ is a hard-charger with a bit of Voivod dissonance meets classic Dio. Lyrically, it represents the loud voices we hear in the world, those who make bold claims, but who ultimately would never put their lives on the line for anyone else.”

Demon Eye will a play a record release show in August alongside Captain Beyond, with additional live performances to be announced in the weeks to come.

Taking a name from the 1975 song “Black-Eyed Bruiser” by Australian pop icon Stevie Wright, “King Hitter” properly introduces the Raleigh-based five-piece to the world. Under the guidance of producer James Lugo (Fuel/Matt Sorrum/311), the EP was recorded during the mid months of 2014 at Hemispheres Recording. Featuring five herculean songs that are comfortably familiar yet fresh and new, it showcases the band’s tempered chops.

King Hitter made its live debut at The Pour House in Raleigh on June 13th and followed it up as a performer at NC MetalFest alongside 22 other bands a month later. Event organizer Tony Leonard said, “King Hitter is classic 70’s hard rock/metal with a modern edge. This is one of my favorite releases at the moment. A totally awesome band.”

The self-titled’s track listing is as follows:

1. King Hitter
2. Drone Again
3. Feel No Pain
4. Suicide
5. The End
