Ventura, California based Metal outfit NIGHT DEMON have proclaimed their epic return in 2017, which comes in the form of the band's upcoming full length studio effort, Darkness Remains. The new album is the follow up to their debut record, Curse of the Damned, and is primed for an April 21st release on Century Media. In addition to the impending release of Darkness Remains, Night Demon is also pleased to announce that they will be embarking on a US tour supporting the venerable likes of Anvil. The tour begins on March 2nd in Boston and will conclude on April 9th in Cleveland. The band will also be announcing a special album release show in Los Angeles for April 17th.
Speaking about their journey on the path leading to the release of Darkness Remains, the members of NIGHT DEMON came together to state the following:
"Well it's about time for Night Demon to release a new album! It's been quite the whirlwind for us touring the world over the last two years on Curse of the Damned. We really wanted to give the existing fans a chance to digest the album and have a chance to see it live a few times. We have been prepping for the new record for over a year, and now the moment is upon us to unleash this beast for one and all! Very excited to continue our road journeys with some new material for the faithful, and the newcomers. Night Demon is coming for you in 2017!"
Darkness Remains will be available in the following formats: Limited Edition Digipak, LP, and a Deluxe Digital Edition (featuring bonus tracks). Vinyl will be released in the following colors: Dark Green – European Exclusive - Limited to 2000 copies Silver – US Exclusive – Limited to 500 copies

In addition to the upcoming album and touring, Night Demon remain active in their charitable efforts and have just launched the campaign for their annual "Metal Cares" program. Speaking about this project and their endeavors aimed at giving back to the community, the band comments:
"At least once a year we do a campaign for the Night Demon Metal Cares shirt. Each year has a new design and they have ended up being some of the best merch we've done. This year, our big brothers in Cirith Ungol have gotten in on the action to combine forces with us for an amazing T-shirt for the 2017 edition of Metal Cares.
Recently our efforts have been focused on scholarships for the underprivileged in our community - working with the YMCA and Merch Relief in aiding victims of natural disasters, and that is the focus of this new design.
The current campaign runs from February 22nd through March 3rd. ALL PROFITS will be donated! Shirts are produced in response to pre-order and will print/ship once the campaign ends - at which time this exclusive design will be gone!"
"Darkness Remains delivers all the expected 'New Wave of British Heavy Metal' inspired thrills and chills, but also sees members, Jarvis Leatherby (vocals/bass), Armand John Anthony (guitar), and Dusty Squires (drums), honing their songwriting chops. Not only has the band’s overall sound matured, but the individual members have carved out their own niches, sharpened their attack, and even taken some chances along the way. Boasting a full, powerful, and clear production that retains a raw edginess, Darkness Remains sets the gold standard for how a traditional metal record should sound in 2017."

We here at BAH Magazine we asked to get the word out about one of our favorite bands Alter Bridge and the single "My Champion", we were ready and willing to help! Our review of the album can been seen here: http://www.bahmagz.com/2016/10/album-review-alter-bridge-last-hero-4.html but I wanted the fans to let the world know what the song and Alter Bridge means to them and they have shared some amazing stories in tribute to "My Champion" please enjoy!
James Schmid from Waterloo, Ontorio. Alter Bridge provides everything you'd expect from a rock radio hit, while also giving die hard AB fans everything they expect from their beloved band with My Champion.
The song opens with a guitar riff reminiscent of Def Leppards "Photograph" before hitting you square in the face with a "heavy for radio" sound that remains catchy without disappointing their "we like it fast and hard" fans. Their fan base, and music ranges in such a wide spectrum, it…
Cane Hill brought their Louisiana industrial sound to the
Chameleon Club in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on March 11th of 2017. It
was a Saturday night which meant the people of PA were ready to party! There is
always a party following this band. Their energetic sound ignites something in
people. As they took the stage as the opener of the “Let’s Get
Abducted Tour” the crowd was anxious. They played multiple songs from their
2016 summer released album “Smile” and to the bands surprise most of the folks
watching them were mouthing the words. As they recently got back from touring
overseas it has come to their attention that they are steadily gaining
popularity. The link below allows you to find where they will be next along
with album and merchandise purchasing info. Look out world, Cane Hill is coming
for you. http://wearecanehill.com/

version of the song "Metalingus" was originally recorded for ALTER BRIDGE's debut album One Day Remains. The song reached a
whole new audience when it was selected as the official entrance theme of WWE
superstar Edge back in 2004! Those years following, would have the song played
weekly on television right up until the day he retired in 2011 and is still
used every time he returns even until today. Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities is avai…
