Album Notes
Right from its inception in early 2000, DR has been raising eyebrows. The band had a very unstable lineup till 2003; the Demonstealer (guitars, vocals) remains the only member of the original team. Rising above its unsteady beginnings, DR was reborn that same year, its entity stronger than ever. With the Demonstealer on guitars and vocals, Husain on bass, Mephisto on keys and JP on drums, DR scrapped the old material and composed songs that successfully took on several genres; creating the type of music they term ‘Demonic Metal’. In 2006, Pradeep (Infernal Wrath, Ex-Disembodied Corpse) joined the band as lead guitarist.

In 6 years as a band, DR has self-produced and released two full-length albums and been featured on numerous split-CDs and compilations worldwide. DR is backed by Demonstealer Records, Barcode Entertainment and Demonic Studios.

Demonic Resurrection is:
The Demonstealer – Vocals/Guitars
Pradeep – Guitars
Mephisto – Synth
Husain – Bass

Influences: Dimmu Borgir, Blind Guardian, Old Mans Child, Emperor, Immortal, Kamelot, Susperia, The Crown, Cryptopsy, Deicide, Kalmah, Children Of Bodom, Dark Tranquility, Soilwork, In Flames, Necrophagist, Behemoth, Arsis, Arch Enemy, God Dethroned and many more…..

farhad arora

brilliant work
one of the most creative works of all time. it invokes alot of emotions and feelings from within. truly a masterpeice.can identify one self with the atmosphere created in each track!!!!

Demonic Resurrection at GIR 2006..an experience never to be forgotten! the day the cd played on my system..i knew ..the king of all bands had arrived..starting from DReams of the Dead..pure aggression tempered by those melodic keyboard passages..world-class vocals by the Demonstealer are backed by monstrous bass by Hussein and frenetic double-bass by JP! pure mayhem that is, i cant help sayin it, beautiful to the ears! not a single song is a filler, and each and every note has a reason behind it..my fav would be Invoking the Demons..starting slowly with Hussein havin fun on the bass..to Demonstealer's whammy trips..it builds up gradually to a momentary pause..and suddenly explodes with a fast roll by JP..and then the Devil save you! then one cant help mentioning their most famous song..Frozen Portrait..starts of with clean guitars..mellow..Demonstealer showin us his mellow side! amazin to say the least! Mephisto then blends in with the main vocalist..(hes a damn good vocalist in his own right)..a song that could easily be the ambassador of DR's crusade as a band to be reckoned with on world music charts! a really solid outro as well, bettered only by The Summoning's outro, which, by the way, is the last song before the final keyboard solo ends off the album. this last song encapsulates the brilliance of all tht has gone before..it even has a clean guitar solo by Warren, Zero's wiz arist! (something one finds on 2 other songs on the album..find out yourself dudes!) and here i must mention that i still find it hard to believe that a supernatural entity was not the skin-basher on Carnival of Depravity! listen to JP's drummin on the song and ill castrate myself (huhahaha) if your jaw doesnt hang down in sheer incredulity! Dave Lombardo has a truly worthy successor..and he's an Indian! i could go and on..but words cant describe this effort..u have to buy it to believe it..artwork is as good as the album itself..and lyrics are no less..the band's atheism is evident..i even find an undertone of the stuggle the band went through to achieve what they have..all the mockery and ridicule that they faced..and still came out to conquer the world thru hard work and creativity! Truly an inspiration! One final word about the DEmonstealer..he's the pillar behind the band's efforts and i have no doubt he will take the band to heights not scaled by any other Indian band..so Obituary, Deicide, Cryptopsy, Dimmu Borgir and more...Watch out!!


Everything from Production to Drumsound. Kickass. Thats our producer there \m/.More power to Juhu!


Splendidly good
This is one pick i took out of instinct, and I must say that Indian melodeath looks good enough. The tracks are decently produced, in fact pretty good, except for the drums which were toned down for the most time.

The songs are also good, though this is not the traditional melodeath that you'd expect. Overall I'll certainly recommend this album if you have a ear to experiment.


its fucken awsome
dude........ u guys rock man...... i heard ur first cd..... and i have no words........ it was awsome ..... never thought an indian band can be so good....... anyways keep up the good work..... an keep rocking......... good luck.......


a killer album..if u've not bought one..better get one!..stay demonic!!!
all i can say after listening to the album is that it owns\m/. an amazing composition..thats all i can say!!!.. got no more words ... demonic resurrection at its best! a must buy album for all you black/death metal fans. killer album!!! rock on\m/ cheers..n lookin forward to many more dr gigs in the coming months..

stay demonic:p

nice band
NIce band. Gr8 album.


Awesome power metal with harshvox that DONT suck.
This is a CD by a band that definately wears its influences on its sleeve. Kamelot-like exchanges between the synth and the Guitar, Blind Guardian-like choruses, the long-lost brother of Mikael Akerfeldt on vocals, etc. Throw in a 80's Gary Moore influenced guy on guitar (listen to the intro on 'Apocalyptic Dawn' and then listen to anything Gary Moore did in Thin Lizzy or the 'Victims of the Future' album) for good measure, and you have a great album. Stylistically, this is most like Children of Boredom and New Blind Guardian. Only thing is, its ten times better than anything Alexi and co. have done. Best tracks are Apolcalyptic Dawn and Frozen Portrait.


A Darkness Descends is one of the finest albums by an Indian band both in terms of the quality of music and the production. A mix of heavy/death/black/symphonic/melodeath rightly called Demonic Metal. Bands and artists like these inspire the many upcoming rockers in India.
