California metalheads Night Demon, whose frontman Jarvis Leatherby we interviewed HERE, have just unleashed a live video featuring their cover of the Golden Earring classic “Radar Love” and it is red hot. I never realized just how intricate the guitars on the song were until I watched this video. Half the song is just one tiny solo after another. The chugging bass and drum outbursts are wonderful, too. Amazing cover, really. Listen above and check out the story behind the band covering the song below.
FROM THE PRESS RELEASE:
A first rate sneak peek into the DEMON live, this rare cover exudes classic metal mastery, whilst simultaneously paying homage to influencers and ushering in a new wave of heavy; creating an intimate fan experience fresh from the stage.
“Radar Love is a cover rarely played by the band. It first appeared as a live version on the expanded edition of our first EP from the first ever Night Demon show. The only other time it was performed was at the drummer of Golden Earring’s club in The Hague, Netherlands on our last European tour. We had a recent request in Cleveland from one of our most diehard fans “Jim Nostra-Demon Bartek” to bust it out live for him. The video proof is here, and the song has since found a regular spot in the Night Demon set for the remaining dates of the Final Curse tour.” states NIGHT DEMON’s Jarvis Leatherby.
