  Demigod - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A "demigod" is meant to identify a person whose one parent was a god and whose other parent was human, such as the heroes of Greek mythology.
The hero's mother manages to lie with king and god in the same night (mother of Theseus) or to be visited secretly by the god (Danaë, mother of Perseus), and the seed of the two fathers is mixed in her womb (not a modern biological possibility, but one that was firmly established in Antiquity).
"Demigod" is sometimes used to translate the term asura in the context of Buddhism and devas in Hinduism.

 Demigod - Melodic Death Metal
Demigod are about that: halfway to entirely godlike and very cool, but a band that faded away too quickly to live on in Adramlech.
Ambient metal in this definition relies on consistent percussion which often does not vary with phrase in its effort to render engaging a rhythmic expectation to which the riffing can counterpoint, giving it a space to shift melody by structural variation and techniques of internal rhythm such as tremelo picking.
Demigod vary their approach from flutterthrob melodic riffage to riffing based more on the percussive power of a chord and variants off its return, in the style of death metal open-string bashers or speed metal rockers.

Despite being an enormous fan of extreme music, even I have to concede that there is some truth to the criticism that death metal albums consist of many songs that sound similar (to the point they could play as one long song if the pauses were omitted).
Blast beats are plentiful throughout "Demigod." However, unlike some albums where listeners find their excessive use to be boring and one-dimensional, the heavy reliance on blast beats only enhances this album.
I wouldn't call "Demigod" a satanic album, but there are certainly references made to pagan gods as well as inspiration drawn from Alister Crowley.

In what could likely prove to be 2005's premature ejaculation for best album, the Polish death/fl metal hybrid professionals known as Behemoth have released an album whose musical and conceptual constituents break down the hapless walls that dare attempt to constrain them.
Speculation of increasing popularity aside, Demigod is an album that causes tension to build up within every nerve.
Demigod, along with their recent albums Zos Kia Cultus, Thelema.6, and Satanica, belong in the collection of everyone from extreme metal connoisseur to listener of all hard music.

 So, what would a Good Demigod do?? - RPGnet Forums
Well, the vast majority of 'demigods' were as likely evil as good, at least in the large mythos that have them.
As for trully 'angelic' demigods, most of the truly great ones were, in fact, lacking in much of any magical power.
To be honest, if you want examples of 'good' demigod abilities, you'd probably be better asking about saintly or divine miracles than the behaviors of ancient mythological half-gods.

 Behemoth: Demigod - PopMatters Music Review
Now, with the release of their seventh album, Demigod, Behemoth not only stake their claim as the finest metal outfit in Eastern Europe, but they now stand as one of the best bands in the genre today, period.
In fact, Demigod, as brutally relentless as it is, is actually one of the most pleasant fl metal albums you'll ever hear.
The majestic opening track "Sculpting the Throne ov Seth" has Nergal musing that all people are gods themselves (perhaps an indictment of the Catholic Church's influence in their homeland), while the song careens at a pace that rivals the late, great underground metal progenitors Death.

I keep thinking that it's not possible, but "Demigod" has once again shown this band uncovering a deeper level of hell and brutality.
I didn't hear this much on their past few efforts, but on "Demigod", you can really hear the layering a lot more and it makes Nergal's vocals sound muddy and noisy.
"Demigod" is one of the most awe-inspiringly brutal death metal albums I've ever heard and it still has the good sense to put effort and intelligence into the songwriting.

I love our previous works, but with this record, it feels like we've been locked in a dark room all this time, and now we came out and saw the light...I believe we achieved the best song writing and best production we could.
In my opinion 'Demigod' is a way more extreme record than 'Zos Kia Cultus' but on the other hand it contains more classic influences...more eerie harmonies and catchiness.
"Demigod" is tentatively scheduled for release this fall on Regain Records in Europe, Mystic Records in Poland, Raven Music in Israel and Irond in Russia.

Where 'Slumber...' was a dark, brooding and depressive piece of atonally melodic death metal, the sophomore full-length, 'Shadow Mechanics' sees Demigod not only expanding the scope of their death metal sound, but also venturing into other, somewhat unexpected musical realms.
This song is rife with impressive and tasteful lead guitar work and a catchy (almost hummable, even) chorus.
Demigod managed to effectively progress away from the heavy Autopsy influence that was ubiquitous in early 90's Scandinavian death metal without losing any personality or intensity, and for that they deserve high praise.

That last particularly album has gained a lot of attention in the scene concerning the furious death/fl-metal that is produced on this disk.
"Demigod" (second complete album) on the other hand is more of an easy-listening album as the melodic fl-metal is catchier that its predecessor.
Without a doubt 'The Awakening' is my absolute favorite on "Demigod", due to the fact that this song has - besides the great keyboards - different drumbeats, relatively slow tempo and a VERY catchy chorus.
