Demon of the Night

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (8 Votes)

Cloven Altar is a traditional Heavy Metal band following in the footsteps of the mighty Iron Maiden on their debut full-length, Demon of the Night. Big choruses, twin-guitar harmonies and galloping bass lines characterize most of the songs and mid-to-fast tempos reign. There are some cool solos courtesy of guitarist Cederick Forsberg (Blazon Stone, Rocka Rollas) and singer Dustin Umberger has a very good, if not great, voice and sinks the hooks on the choruses quite well, especially "Curse of the Immortal" and "Blood of the Elves." Much of Demon of the Night treads familiar ground so it isn't likely to blow you away but if you like Maiden and Traditional Metal in general, it should easily do the trick.
