Three is the magic number, guitar, bass and drums. That rings true for The Demtones, a power-trio from southern Sweden with roots growing deep with classic rock and roll music. The chemistry is strong between the long time friends and it ignites into a high energy and straight to the point performance when they join forces on stage. With great experience from playing stages all around Europe (opening for acts like Lucifer and Hardcore Superstar) The Demtones are confident of owning any stage and bringing any audience to their feet with the force of their music and powerful presence.
Frontman, singer, guitarist and main songwriter Oscar Ericsson leads the way delivering his heartfelt lyrics about fighting your way through life and trying to achieve your goals. It’s apparent that Oscar’s voice and guitar playing work together in a “call and response” like way that creates an ongoing conversation between the words being sung and the notes being played.
The music is heavy and riff oriented with loud and intense lead guitar playing mixed with the finesse and groove of rock and roll. It won’t take any less than a highly skilled drummer to carry the weight of these qualities and the hard hitting Martin Behm Stener is up to the task. Alfred Andersson on bass completes the rhythm section to tie the knot around this package of energy, volume and skill. Inspired by Geezer Butler from Black Sabbath the bass creates tension and drives this buss of rock and roll to take it to where it needs to go to deliver the statement of straight to the point, high energy and head banging music of The Demtones.
