Chicago, Illinois based Metal act DAMIEN THORNE, has just released new, fifth studio album titled “Soul Stealer”. The Jackal Productions’ release includes 10 brand new songs: “Soul Stealer”, “Hell To Pay”, “Dark Mission”, “Hell Rider”, “Tortured Dreams”, “Riding To Glory”, “Salem”, “Remember The Fallen”, “Trapped” and “Tale Of A King”.

Established in Chicago in 1983, DAMIEN THORNE released their classic debut album “The Sign Of The Jackal” in early 1986 on Roadrunner Records. In support of the album, the band went on tour with several major bands across the US. After that the band wasn’t active until 1998 when they returned with the “Former Life” EP, and the 2001 full length release titled “Wrath Of Darkness” – an album which was originally recorded in 1987, but had to wait 14 years for its premiere. Within last years the band has both headlined and played support roles in several Heavy Metal festivals across the US and Europe, including legendary Keep It True Festival, Up The Hammers Festival in Greece, or the Metal Magic Festival in Denmark.

DAMIEN THORNE plays Traditional Heavy Metal, influenced by such classic acts as BLACK SABBATH, DIO or IRON MAIDEN.



About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
