In 1980, the band released Animal Magnetism, again with a provocative cover, this time showing a girl kneeling in front of a man. Animal Magnetism contained classics such as “The Zoo” and “Make It Real”. Soon after the album’s release, Meine began experiencing throat problems. He required surgery on his vocal cords and doubts were raised about whether he would ever sing again.

Meanwhile, the band began working on their next album, Blackout in 1981. Don Dokken was brought in to provide guide and backing vocals while Meine recovered. Meine eventually healed completely and was able to finish the album. Blackout was released in 1982 and quickly became the band’s best selling to date, eventually going platinum. Meine’s voice showed no signs of weakness and critical response to the album was good. Blackout spawned three hit singles: “Dynamite,” “Blackout” and “No One Like You”.

Demon are an English rock/metal group, formed in 1979 by vocalist Dave Hill and guitarist Mal Spooner, both hailing from Leek, Staffordshire. They drew their initial audience from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement in 1980.

The original line-up was completed by Les Hunt (Lead guitar), Chris Ellis (bass guitar) and John Wright (drums). The band were signed by Mike Stone’s Clay Records in 1980 and licensed to Carrere Records to join their stable of metal bands. Their debut album, Night of the Demon, was released in 1981.

After their 1982 follow-up album, The Unexpected Guest, the band experimented beyond the NWOBHM sound and moved the band in a more melodic direction whilst still retaining the more traditional heavy metal black magic lyrical style.[1]

In 1983 Demon took a change in direction.[1] The Plague marked a swing towards a more progressive sound. Lyrically the band also changed direction, switching to a more overtly political style that was to characterise their albums for the rest of their career.[1] The following album, the Pink Floyd influenced British Standard Approved (1984), released on the small independent Clay label, was not a huge commercial success, and with the death of Mal Spooner later that year, it appeared that the band would soon fold.[1]

However Heart of Our Time (1985) showed that the remaining members of the band were determined to continue, and it was the start of a new songwriting partnership between Hill and Watts. Although the album is regarded as the weakest of the bands releases, it paved the way for the critically acclaimed Breakout (1987) and its follow up Taking the World by Storm (1988).[1] The band continued releasing material throughout the 1990s, and despite several line-up changes continue to record and tour whilst maintaining a loyal and hardcore cult following throughout Europe.

“Blownapart Bastards were a crust punk band of the early-to-mid 1990s from Greensboro, NC. In an era of Born Against, Econochrist, and Rorschach, Blownapart Bastards had a similar sound to these bands with at least as much to say. Coming from North Carolina, and not adhering to punk fashion (their singer wore Tevas and bright shorts), Blownapart Bastards was less popular than these punk giants of the early 90s. Their lyrics were overtly political about issues ranging from animal rights, the environment, globalization (before it was a big issue amongst punks), nonviolence, and indigenous rights.

The band shared a drummer with the Scottish band Oi Polloi, and went on a US tour with Oi Polloi and released a split 7″ with them. Blownapart Bastards broke up in 1995 and their members went on to form Divide & Conquer, Unsettled, Catharsis , and Uwharria.” -allexperts.com
