Demon Pact was formed back in 1979, they released a single called “Eaten Alive” in 1981 on their own label Slime Records, I think a 1000 copies was released, a couple of years ago a bootleg version was released. Also in 1981 they was featured on the legendary “Kent Rocks” compilation with other great names such as Dervish, Renegade and Raw Deal. Demon Pact disbanded in 1982, but drummer Iain Finlay later showed up in German pirate band Running Wild on their “Death or Glory” album.  

This new album consists of four demo tracks from 1982, the track “Escape” was released on the “Kent Rock” album, the other three tracks have never been released before. The album ends with the two tracks from the “Eaten Alive” single.  

The music delivered by Demon Pact can be compared with the music from other great N.W.O.B.H.M. bands such as Sparta, typical N.W.O.B.H.M. but with a raw edge to it. Especially the track “Escape” kicks serious ass.  

Once again High Roller and Hades Paradise are delivering the goods, like all their previous releases this is a must have album, and once again it is limited to 500 copies.
