Par Bianchimani Michel TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURSMEMBRE DU CLUB DES TESTEURS le 30 juin 2011
Format: CD
Voila encore un album qu'il est bon de retrouver en édition CD . Lors de sa sortie en 1981 , le premier album du groupe "Night of the Demon" avait laissé présager au vu de la pochette , un style musical proche de Mercyful Fate .Mais si certaines ambiances d'intro laisse supposer cela , la musique proposée est bien plus proche d'un Saxon par exemple que de celle des Danois mené par King Diamond. Nous voici en présence d'un excellent album de Hard Rock bien balancé tout simplement dont les morceaux font mouche presque à chaque coup et dont les musiciens sont au service de la musique qu'ils proposent . Le premier opus avait laissé entrevoir du potentiel et effectivement ce second album est l'album de la maturité . On sent une homogénéité de l'ensemble et les morceaux sont de véritables chansons dont les refrains parviennent nous faire battre la mesure !!
De "Don't break the circle" , l'hymne de l'album en passant par "Total possession" , "The Spell" ou encore "Sign of a Madman" le rythme est bien soutenu , les riffs sont efficaces et les soli inspirés et ce n'est pas "Have We been here before" qui me fera changer d'avis tant ce morceau est bien envoyé !!
"Strange Institution" est une très belle ballade à l'ambiance quelque peu tragico/mélancolique qui permet au groupe de recharger les batteries avant de remettre la machine à riffer en route avec l'excellent "The Grand Illusion" et le tonitruand "Deliver us from evil" qui clôture l'album original de magnifique façon !!

Le 2eme album de groupe paraît en 1982, un lèger changement de line-up voit Chris Ellis intègrer le groupe à la basse et Andy Richard aux synthés. Les compos sont toujours signées par la paire Hill-Spooner, le groupe poursuit dans le style du 1er album en un peu plus mature. L'album démarre à nouveau par une curieuse intro à laquelle s'enchaîne "Don't break the circle", titre vigoureux idéal pour se mettre dans le bain, un hit en puissance! L'ajout de claviers, bien que discrets, donne plus de richesse aux titres et le groupe propose toujours ces titres imparables qui font taper du pied ( "Have we been here before", "Deliver us from evil" ou "Total possession" ) ainsi que des titres mid-tempo avec toujours cette petite touche identifiable grace aux guitares de Hunt et Spooner. Pas de temps mort sur cet album qui laisse présager du meilleur pour la suite

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Demons best work 5 janvier 2012
Par Bloodbath_and_Beyond - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Demon's 2nd album The Unexpected Guest is a great album. Their first, Night Of The Demon, is a great Halloween album, ripe with dark lyrics but a more radio styled hard rock sound. Rather than play the faster more aggressive up and coming metal of bands like Saxon, Motorhead, Iron Maiden, and Venom...Demon went for a more blue collar British rock sound in the spirit of UFO or Thin Lizzy. Although they flirted with the type of darkness that made bands like Venom so threatening and heavy 1981, they stayed away from the pre-thrash style. And they crafted a record with great singing, melodic riffs, and a solid bass/drum section. Its a minor NWOBHM classic. But their follow up, the less popular Unexpected Guest is apparently a concept album. Its much better than NOTD. Although when played back to back they're great listens. But whats most apparent, is the band here is way more inspired musically. No particular instrument sticks out, well, the guitar is playing ripping here but as a whole its very alive and electric. The band is rocking for its life on these songs.

The production has a lot to do with it. It's vibrant and full of life and singer Dave Hill sounds as enthused as ever. Yeah the Satanic songwriting elements kinda box the album into a certain reaction, depending on how you feel about this type of thing. And this music is dated, as most evidenced by its slight stabs of keyboard here and there. It has a very 80s feel to it, despite being part of the New Wave of British Metal Heavy, which most of its bands remain timeless innovators to the hard rock/metal genre, Demon in a way dont. But this is not a bad thing at all. If you love hard rock or dont require your heavy metal to be speed like (think Slayer or Sepultura) you'll thoroughly enjoy this jewel of an album. From the breaking down the door opener Don't Break The Circle, to the tough rockers like Sign Of A Madman and Victim Of Fortune, youll have your first pumping on all of this. The albums break in momentum, Strange Institution at first feels like a misstep but it soon evolves into a great memorable rocker. The best song here is Total Possession. The chorus part 'total possession! I think he's possessed' while simple enough will be in your head for days.

Where as Night Of The Demon had some great songs and a good feel, it had some down moments. This album never lets up, its a constant stream of mid-fast paced rocking from a band that sounds they're like playing their best music. The album also seems a little more hard rock then Night Of, which contained a few bluesy-rock type songs and a few commercial songs. Guest has a more headbanging feel to it, course not by todays standards or anything but for the fan of early 80s British rock, or especially a fan of horror music (cd for your Halloween party) this is a nice pick up.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 4.5 stars - Demon's best album and a NWOBHM classic 28 février 2006
Par Justin G. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
It's good to see the Demon albums getting the remaster treatment. They certainly deserve it. Demon was always one of the more underrated New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) bands - come to think of it, aside from Maiden, Saxon and a few others, they were all underrated.

The Unexpected Guest, released in 1982, is Demon's second album, and a real classic. It alternates between being straight-ahead heavy metal and dramatic, melodic hard rock, sounding like equal parts Saxon and Uriah Heep. The combination works quite well. Songs like "Don't Break the Circle" and "Deliver Us from Evil" are powerful metal anthems, and dramatic pomp-rock numbers like "Victim of Fortune" and "Have We Been Here Before" would have been at home on a Magnum album. The Unexpected Guest is primarily a metal album, but there are enough melodic, accessible songs included that it really should have appealed to a wider audience. I imagine the band's sinister name scared off a fair share of potential listeners.

If you're a metal fan, particularly fan of the classic 1980's British metal sound, and haven't heard Demon, I highly recommend checking them out. The Unexpected Guest is a great album to start with, as it's easily their most "metal" offering and probably their best album overall (yes, even better than Night of the Demon).

Edition Notes: Dead Ringer's 2003 reissue of The Unexpected Guest provides a much needed upgrade, not to mention getting this classic album back in circulation after a long absence. The remastered sound breathes new life into the album, and there are four bonus tracks included for good measure. The bonus tracks are remixes or outtakes of songs on the main album, and don't really add much. The liner notes could have been better too. The lyrics are printed inside, along with a very brief note from Dave Hill. Some additional artwork, photos, or commentary (see Castle's excellent NWOBHM reissues) would have been a nice touch.

I love the music on this CD, flash back to when I was growing up.
Anyway, I knocked it a few stars - not for the quality of the music but for the quality of the sleeves inside.
They truly look like they were printed on a bad printer, words are hard to make out, kinda fuzzy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Give this album a chance - it's a gem! 29 janvier 2003
Par L. B. Ivarsson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Demon released "The unexpected guest" in 1982. Around this time bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Motorhead etc were in focus. Demon might be considered a heavy metal band but they don't sound like Maiden or Priest. It's kinda hard to describe the music 'cos I can't find any band to compare them with... The songs are well written, catchy and melodic but has nothing at all in common with so called pop-metal, hair-metal or whatever you choose to call it. The lyrics show a curiousity in life after death but has nothing to do with devil worship.
Sometimes I think reveiwers give albums 5 stars without even thinking about it - "if it's good, alright I'll give it a 5". But this album is in my opinion well worth 5 stars, or for that matter - [$$$]!
If you like this one, maybe you find the first one "Night of the demon" interesting but have in mind that "Night of the demon" isn't by far as good as "The unexpected guest". And if you decide to buy Demon's other albums - remember that you do it on your own risk of disappointment!!

Fabulous NWOBHM band. This is their best album. Remember stumbling across this in the infamous Cheapo Cheapo Records store on Rupert Street in London's Soho when it first came out & it was rarely off the turn table. Great to b able to get it on cd & it even has 4 remixes/alt takes.
