By the time Taking the World by Storm was released in 1989, Demon had fully made the transition from pioneering New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) band to straightforward arena/pomp rock. That's not to suggest that this is some wimpy AOR album (not that there's anything wrong with that). Taking the World by Storm is more of a harder rocking version of what Magnum and Uriah Heep were releasing at the time. The songs are catchy and melodic, but they also rock quite a bit. After the AC/DC-esque opening track Commercial Dynamite, the songs on Taking the World by Storm have an epic, almost progressive quality, especially the lengthy tracks like Remembrance Day and Time Has Come.

As always, vocalist Dave Hill's songwriting proves to be the band's greatest strength. The songs on Taking the World by Storm are all quite well written, both musically and lyrically. It's a very solid album not only in terms of 80's rock, but in general. Listening to it in 2007, it doesn't seem all that dated, which can't be said for a lot of that era's albums.

Unfortunately, Taking the World by Storm did anything but. The album remains unappreciated, even among Demon's fans. It's a shame, because if you let go of preconceived notions and expectations, I think you'll find this album to be a more than worthy addition to the Demon catalog.

NOTE: Taking the World by Storm was reissued in 2002. The updated version features a much needed digital remastering and one bonus track - a demo version of Trick of the Light.

WHy they don't release Demon's two really worthwhile albuns, "NIGHT OF THE DEMON" and "THE UNINVITED GUEST" ? These one here is nothing compared to them ...
