Demonise is typical Linki rock. A contemporary take on the ancient form. Bursting with raw guitars, primal drums and heavy bass, it gets the blood pumping and immediately draws you in.

Lyrically, the themes are dark and personal and while the delivery is sweet, it conveys angst and underlying desperation.
