Biography

Formed in 2004, Shadow Of Demise set out to play an extreme style of metal sticking to the mainstays of traditional thrash and death metal but adding a modern feel to the music. Founding members; vocalist Stephen Graves and guitarist Dan Belmont began writing crushing riffs and equally twisted lyrics and soon found like-minded musicians to record a three song demo late in 2004 entitled Fracture. In 2005 the band acquired drummer Luigi Argento and lead guitarist Ronnie Merrin. After making a brutal live debut at Brooklyn Music Terminal in late August of that year, the band began writing material for their first full length album. In March 2006, as they laid down the tracks for their debut album Premature Burial, Shadow Of Demise immediately began playing all over New York City, solidifying their reputation as an explosive, sought-after metal act in the local scene. Over the summer of 2006, one more addition was made to the lineup in bassist John Callous. The band played extensively through late 2006 to summer 2008 with roughly 38 shows played all over the city. In the summer of 2008, after various issues arose in the personal lives of the members, Shadow Of Demise went on indefinite hiatus. In the winter of 2009 talks of a reunion stirred the interest of fans and local club owners. In 2010 Shadow Of Demise returned to the stage for a handful of shows but the lack of a permanent drummer stalled any long term plans. Fast forward to 2015 and the monster has awakened once more with renewed energy and the addition of drummer Cory Detritus.
