Las Vegas female-fronted doom metal band Demon Lung have built quite a reputation for themselves via two critically acclaimed albums on Candlelight and live appearances all over the west coast with bands like Candlemass, Crowbar, Venom Inc., High On Fire, Eyehategod, Today Is the Day, Saint Vitus, Pentagram and more. Demon Lung kick off 2018 with a first time vinyl reissue of their self-released 2012 EP, Pareidolia, complete with four bonus tracks, including covers of Twisted Sister's "Captain Howdy" and Danzig's "How the Gods Kill."
"With every studio session we've ever done, we always throw down on some of our favorite covers at the end of live tracking," explains drummer Jeremy Brenton. "This was just the perfect time to open the vault and pull out our favorites." In addition, Demon Lung have included an old, original track. "'Pray For Rain' is a song that we recorded around the same time as the original Pareidolia EP. We wanted to keep it to 4 songs so we dropped it before finishing the solo section," clarifies Jeremy.
Finally, the reissue includes a surprise cut, a cover of Seattle friends and frequent touring partners Wounded Giant's "The Road to Middian." "We jammed the song with Wounded Giant at the end of their set on tour every night," Jeremy adds. "[Wounded Giant singer/guitarist] Bobby James came down to hang out with us and we figured we should try to record it for posterity. We are still very proud of the original EP and are stoked to have it finally issued on vinyl through M-Theory! Why now? I don't really have a good answer for that. We wanted to put it on vinyl and we had enough to fill up the other side."
