More Info:

"When Demons Call" is the 2nd album of American progressive metallers MASQUED! Masqued is a band like no other. Located in Houston, Texas, they specialize in uncompromising heavy metal, with songs featuring complex arrangements, deep lyrical themes, and hooks that get stuck in your head. With influences ranging from 70s rock to bay area thrash, jazz, progressive metal, and everything in between, Masqued seeks to push the boundaries of modern-day metal while still appealing to fans of music from many different genres. The combination of technical wizardry, soulful, soaring vocals, and expertly crafted songs results in a sound that is truly unique in today's music scene. The band was formed in 2014 by guitarist Eric Halpern (Helstar, Leatherwolf), bassist Shane Dubose, and keyboardist Adam Rawlings out of the ashes of local Houston legends Z-lot-Z. Looking for a more aggressive, modern sound, they recruited drummer Jon Allen (Testament / Sadus), guitarist Drew Creel (Meyvn), and vocalist Steffany Johnston completes the group. Masqued's debut album, "The Light in the Dark", was produced by Juan Urteaga (Testament / Machine Head / Vicious Rumors) with additional tracking by Brian Baker (Toadies / Garbage). The album released through Sleazy Rider Records (Greece) and has been receiving rave reviews across the globe. After this release the band played in many gigs (also at Femme Metal Festival in Belgium, Europe), but after covid came into life of everyone, the band couldn't play on gigs but started to prepare new songs for a second album. The music progress was slowly but in a smooth way and Masqued prepared a powerful album, that is ready, including 10 brand new and original tracks, plus a cover version of Fates Warning's classic "Point Of View". Entitled "When Demons Call", their new album will be released on 9 June 2023 by Sleaszy Rider once again!
