5.0 classicOnirium | May 16th 16

"Demon" greatly expands the scope of Gazpacho's universe and definitely contains the band's finest rmoments to date, From the brooding 18 minutes of Death Room to the quirky and fascinating Wizard rof Altai Mountains or the poignant violin passages of I?ve Been Walking, the music of the record rserves as an organic, very textural soundtrack to a dream Gazpacho have written for us. Because, ras a concept album, Demon is particularly effective, and, in a way, quite innovative. The music rsuggests a vague imagery complemented by somewhat abstract lyrics, but ? especially because of rthis vagueness ? the effect is powerfully evocative. Impressionistic conceptual music, not to rsound pretentious at all. But more importantly: a work of brilliant melodicism and sheer emotion - a rare demonstration of authenticity from this tame prog scene.

5.0 classicAlex Kugaczewski | December 8th 14

Surprised I hadn't written a sound-off for this. To put it simply, it's the year's best progressive rock album. Experimental, ethereal, and utterly enjoyable, "Demon" may be Gazpacho's best album to date.

3.5 greatTheNotrap | July 18th 14

Enjoyable album, heavily influenced by Marillion (H-era) and Radiohead. It's a slow grower.

This took quite a few listens but its finally starting to sink in.

2.5 averageHeavyMetalSnail | April 25th 14

While the music and lyrics are very strong, the album suffers from a huge issue of homogenization. Every single song blends right into the other without anything that distinguishes them from one another. I understand that most of the tracks are parts of greater songs, but those parts are arbitrary, only distinguished by lyrical content, which is not enough to sustain the album on its own. The only major difference between tracks was Death Room (Part 3) to the previous two tracks. While the parts on their own are good, they do not come together very well.

0.0 Evan Mester | April 25th 14

Demon is unlike any other progressive rock album to be released in recent memory. The instrumentation and songwriting here exhibits a hypnotic and somber tone that is kept for almost the entirety of this modern masterpiece's 50 minute run time. While it does have a few moments where the tone seems to sound more positive like the second half of "The Wizard of Altai Mountains", Demon is a constantly beautiful and haunting descent down a seemingly endless pit of darkness. However, the deeper you descend, the more invested and immersed you will be in this expertly crafted soundscape.
