More on Casino Demon from Rock in China:
Veering from raw, raunchy noises to well-crafted songs, form tightly controlled, rapidly paced shows to drunken, lunatic ravings, Casino Demon during 2006 moved from the outskirts of the Beijing music scene to becoming one of the central bands, equally at home with crazed punks or with astonishing guitarists. The have been called emo, Britpop, metal, punk, and many other things, and leader Wang Zi is very obviously a sophisticated musician with a wide range of talents and influences, but at heart the band is an all-out rock and roll band that grabs everything it likes and smashes it together into their songs. Their shows even vary depending on who they are playing with, but when they really crank it up they sound only like themselves.
Songwriting and guitar playing are the two most abundant kinds of talent in the Beijing scene – for sheer songwriting and guitar playing Beijing can compete with any city in the world – and Casino Demon is strong at both. Guitarist/vocalist Wang Zi has put together a very strong backing group to showcase these talents.
