"Nuclear Winter Demo" (Self-produced)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
Drago's "Nuclear Winter Demo" is a schizophrenic little beast, delivering solid rock songs with guitars that alternate between stoner grunge to 80s metal steel and a vocalist who sounds one minute like Don Dokken and the next like Chris Barnes of Cannibal Corpse.
Though it may seem like this combination would create a strange, muddy musical potion, it all comes together surprisingly well, especially for a demo with limited production values. With the right producer and a bigger production budget, "Nuclear Winter Demo" could very well become an accomplished full-length CD.
With a sound that is definitely all their own and the talent to back it up, Drago's demo CD does exactly what a demo CD is supposed to do: Act as a calling card that showcases the band's talents and gets their music out beyond their local circle. After hearing "Nuclear Winter Demo," I wanted to hear more from the band, and I think you will, too.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
