About Demons Within
After a year and half away from the music industry, it was time to unleash one more metal assault, so in December of 2007, J.C.B.(vocals) and T.C.(lead guitarist) founding members of the Cleveland band BAPTIZED IN BLOOD, started to put the core of their new project together.
With a couple of weeks of talking and planning gone by, there was only one guitarist that would be willing and able to kick Cleveland in the ass with us, and the only one we would consider sharing the stage with that was DARK SECLUSION. We gave him a call and the first thing he asked "when and where", so with DARK SECLUSION on board our next mission was to find a drummer.
We needed a drummer that could handle music with intense double kick, odd time signatures and many changes throughout. So the search began and it wasnt until we saw an ad stating; Death Metal drummer looking for serious band. So we made the call and the next thing we knew we had a drummer by the name of Retribution.
With one void in the line up to fill, we needed a solid and versatile bassist, J.C.B. made a call to a BONGO of Third Union and asked if he would consider playing bass in our project. BONGO replied "Yes" before the question was even asked. Now the band was complete and ready to rise from the bowels of HELL and kick the music scene right in the face.
