AllMusic Review by

Though often associated with the new wave of British heavy metal, Demon were a metal band unafraid to change with the times. While this stylistic change from NWOBHM to melodic hard rock to prog took place over the course of decades, the whole transformation has been captured on the two-disc set, Time Has Come: The Best of Demon. Tracking the band through its many different eras as it rocked its way through the '70s into the '80s and '90s, this set feels almost like an overview of what was happening in popular metal at the time, with unchecked aggression eventually giving away to more melodic tendencies.
