Seattle-based power thrash outfit SHADOW DEMON has released its debut album, "Grimoire of Ruin", through many online distributors as well as via the band's record label, Darkhaven Records (web site). The album, which features artwork by Mattias Noren (EVERGREY, INTO ETERNITY, AYREON), is described in a press release as "a dark journey filled with as much mystery as melody."Commented bassist James Rinker: "This has been a bit of a lengthy journey for SHADOW DEMON to finally arrive at the release of 'Grimoire of Ruin'. We’ve all really poured our hearts and souls into this work and we're hoping that listeners can appreciate something that we think is both classic and new…but heavy metal through and through!" SHADOW DEMON was formed by guitarist Jeff Helm and vocalist Blaine Hammond in early 2002. They were joined shortly thereafter by James Rinker as well as session musicians Clint Clark, Tim Diedrich and Kirk Meredith to record their demo. After finding a solid line-up with the addition of drummer Jay Davidson and lead guitarist Ryan Gallagher, SHADOW DEMON is "ready to take the metal world by storm."
