*This is part of our State Of The Art series, showcasing bands every Monday from the State of the month.”
This month’s State is Wyoming! (I’m a little late on last Mondays’ post.)
Demise of Sanity comes to from Cheyenne, Wyoming. While the band has more of a southern sound, and by southern I mean straight from the depths of hell. The band was formed in 2009 and has since released two full length albums and an EP. Their debut was titled “Falling Into Madness” and was unveiled in 2011. Next they released an EP titled “Towards the Guilded Edge” in 2013. The most recent release in February of this year was entitled “In the Midst of Stones and Fire”. They are signed to Bastard Giraffe Records. The band has elements of thrash and their sound as a whole is encased and surrounded with amazing riffs by axe man Dustin Clark. The riffs aren’t sporadic and they melt faces equally throughout the Equality State. Each song seems to really showcase something different about the band, and they build harmony very well between the music and the vocals throughout each and every song. The vocals help set the band apart, at times the clean’ish melodic singing style by Shawn Colvin brings this bluesy element into the mix. The blues and metal have always been close in relation and it helps the band have this refreshing sound that stands out in the crowd of bands flooding the market. They have released a video for a song on the newest album entitled ‘Escape From Tomorrow’. In this song the screaming parts of the vocals along with the guitar riffs and some funky bass lines make this song have an edge against the other tracks. The band has two upcoming dates in Cheyenne including one at Zombie Fest so make sure to get out there and check them out.
