“Demon Doll” Music Video.
“This song was first conceptualized on a Saturday in November of 2022 in my living room. Talking with my best friend, Donnie Dubose, He was mentioning when he played in the band called Planet Graveyard, and just prior to disbandment, they were working on a song called “Living Doll”. The song was loosely based on the Annabelle Movies.Over a few drinks, and some very hearty barbecue, we were talking about playing music and writing new songs together to record to put out on the streaming services. And he mentioned that concept to me. “You know, Steve,” he’d said. “We ought to put together an Annabelle Song “.That was really all it took. I commenced to experimenting with a few different riffs and came up with something that sounded as sinister as Black Sabbath’s song “Black Sabbath”.I wanted to have that same Devil’s Tritone approach. And with a Pantera’s Phil Anselmo/ Henry Rollins stylistically influenced spoken word over top of it, I felt that it would sound really eerie. And what you hear is the end result of our collaboration together. Donnie was tragically killed in a traffic accident on April 14th of 2023…This is the absolute last piece of creative content that we worked on together. I am extremely fortunate and grateful that we had one last hoorah together as musicians. Musicians I might add, who have played together in numerous bands as well as recording projects, as far back as 1987. He was my best friend, and will be sorely missed.” – Steve Gray
