The Demonics - Ritual On The Beachdotdotdot
artworkThe Demonics are like a variation on the Ziggens. One instrumental here, "Mavericks," drives with lots of power, but the rhythm section is way do dominant to allow the power of the melody and lead to be experienced. The last vocal is a great punkoidal treatment of "Aloha Oi."
Picks: Summoning Neptune, Mavericks

Track by Track Review


Summoning Neptune dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Just drums and the sound of the waves, ending with a screaming "Surf's Up Motherfuckers!" 21 seconds of filler. It serves as an introduction to "Ritual On The Beach," a kind of punkoidal Beach Boys vocal.

Mavericks dotdotdot
Surf Punk (Instrumental)

A solid punk rhythm section powers under an under-mixed hard driving surf guitar that's unfortunately overpowered by the backtrack, resulting in a loss of power and focus. A great song in need on remixing.
