It is with great pride and privelage that we formally announce the beginning of the new era with our new vocalist, Ms. Chelsea Knaack. After a series of auditions, this Minnesota native flew out to NY and recorded DesDemon’s soon to be released album Through the Gates like no other could. Her vocal prowess is impressive, through years of training with renouned vocal instructor Diana Grasselli out in Minneapolis. We look forward to growing as a unit with Chelsea at the helm and making some of the best female fronted metal out there today. Please download the sampler of the upcoming album.

A statement from lead guitarist Frank Tosi “Its refreshing to have such an enthusiatic feel here in the band again. This album process really threw some unexpected curveballs for us all here in the group. Through snow storm after snow storm, members leaving, members returning, new members coming in…it has been quite the stressful circus! Thankfully our Japanese Label (Radtone Music) was extremely patient as we worked things out. In retrospect, it was definately the best decision we could have made for us all. I can honestly say that I’ve never been happier in this band. It’s a real pleasure to play with such a great group of high powered musicians, especially our new drummer Mike Marrone & our incredilbe new vocalist Chelsea Knaack! What an amazing range and demeanor. Such a pro! Now it’s onto getting some live dates together and hitting the road!”
