Daimonion comes from Piotrkow Trybunalski, Poland. Their music may be called atmospheric rock with a lot of climate, space and dark anxiety. The band has always had good reception live and this form of contacting fans is the band's favourite. Daimonion has produced several demo and live tapes and CDs, as well as one full-length studio album entitled ‘Daimonion’, officially issued on June, 15th 2007 by Love Industry, an indie label from Łódź, Poland. Their songs were included in several medleys, e.g. the one accompanying the 2001 edition of the Castle Party festival in Bolkow, PL, which left the band with a great deal of warm memories of participating in five of its editions. The band was also present on a DVD medley released by Metal Mind Records entitled 'In Goth We Trust', issued to show an overview of the Polish dark and gothic scene.
