Among the dark creatures of the night there has always been a fascination among us for Demons. What drives them? Are they as evil as some wants us to believe or are they just another type of beings, driven by the flames, proud and full of all the emotions we have?
Demonic Oath is the first single from Pressure’s upcoming EP and will set the tone for the stories to be told. The two commanders of the Hoarde, representing the world of the flames swear on their hearts and their souls to be the leaders on this dark and dangerous campaign.
Demonic Oath and other stories on this album are written from the demon’s perspective. To show just a glimpse of their world and how they see their existence. The deeper meaning of this stories is to never judge a book by its cover. Even a demon has the right to get his or her story told. So come join us in the darkness among the flames, gaze upon the dark dragon lord and embrace the stories of the two Demon Commanders.

Pressures first album “Path of a shadow” (2021) was the first ever released Story Metal album and was well received both by the hard-core rock fans and by media. A concept album but using different languages, styles, genres and music but managed to tie it all together with a story told from your shadow’s perspective.
