Just over a year after the release of their debut album, Saint Deamon are back with a strong head wind in their sails with the worthy follow up “Pandeamonium”.

But after 4 weeks together we became friends and I really mean FRIENDS, you know that kinda friend you can call in the middle of the night if you really need to. So one night at the local bar the night before his flight were supposed to go back he decided to stay, and this after being 4 weeks in our studio already! And with Jens we have the solid ground that never let us down and that make us perform that little extra out of every take in the studio. I hardly think we will ever work without him”.
Ronny enthuses: “I really believe that our fans can hear the true passion and brotherhood in the production of Pandeamonium”.
Final Tracklisting of “Pandeamonium” includes: Deception; The Only One Sane; Pandeamonium; Eyes of the Devil; A Day to Come; Way Home; Fallen Angel; The Deamon Within; Oceans of Glory; Fear In a Fragile Mind. Also includes Pandeamonium (videoclip)
