The Mixtape Is Back! Riot, Raven, Hirax, Night Demon And More….

Source // Night Demon

Heavy Metal purists Night Demon have a vision. That vision is a return to the old-school ways, the return to old-school values and the return of the Mixtape!

Once quoted as “the most widely practiced American art form”, the mixtape format became the most common way in the tape trading scene for underground metal bands to be exposed to new audiences all over the world. With the advancement of the digital age, the mixtape has become a lost art.

Night Demon have taken it upon themselves to compile what they feel in their hearts is a true and current representation of the best heavy metal coming out of America today! Much like Metal For Muthas, Metal Massacre, or Roxcalibur marked those moments in time back in the day, this collection embodies the dominant American heavy metal of this generation.

Not to ignore current trends, Night Demon have seen fit to include a download code with each cassette.  However, the true joy of this compilation comes from listening to the actual tape and they are limited to 666 hand-numbered copies!

The all-important – and frankly stunning – track listing is as follows:

SIDE “A”

Night Demon – Screams in the Night
Riot V – Metal Warrior
Blade Killer – Lost Angels
BAT – Cruel Discipline
Raven – Fight
Spellcaster – Ghost of My Memory
Walpyrgus – We are the Wolves
Hirax – Hellion Rising
Midnight – Evil Like a Knife
Satan’s Hallow – The Horror
Steel Prophet – Trickery of the Scourge

SIDE “B”

Black Death Resurrected – The Return of the Iron Messiah
Midnight Chaser – Lion’s Choice
Visigoth – Call of the Road
Savage Master – Vengeance is Steel
Salvacion – Let Us Prey
Venomous Maximus – Through the Black
Volture – Rulebreaker
Hessian – Old Wild and Free
Harbinger – Die for Metal-Live for Death
Widow – Take Hold of the Night

Compiled and Produced by Night Demon, Mastered by Bart Gabriel, Artwork by Ruben Perez, Layout by Night Demon and Ruben Perez

  1. Actually the health of the mixtape has never been better. We call it a playlist now. It’s pretty similar but the quality of the music doesn’t start to deteriorate with age and use and you don’t have to listen to all this hiss and shite in between songs.

    IF THIS IS WHAT NIGHT DEMON THINKS IS THE BEST OF AMERICAN METAL OUT THERE…. HAIL EUROMETAL!

    WHAT A SAD LIST OF BANDS. JUST PROVES AMERICA WAS NEVER AHEAD OF THE GAME. REAL SAD.

  3. It’s actually kind of a great list of bands if you’re into such things.
