Well, If you are christian then please be open-minded to the statement. Before we can tackle the subject on Angels and Demons, We must first know what "Vibrations" mean, Vibrations doesn't mean the thing that happens when you play a game on a PS2 and something happens and the controller vibrates or the like. In Kabbalistic Tradition, everything in the universe is made out of vibrations, these vibrations differ from being to being, with God being the highest vibration as God is the most holy and the Divine Alchemist, There is only one other thing that has the same Vibration that is the same to God and that is "Love."

With that cleared up here's my answer according to my research. One belief that differs Angels and Demons is their Vibrations, there are a few speculations of this. Some believe Demons have lower Vibrations of Angels, and Angels have higher vibrations. There are also some that believe that Demons and Angels have similar vibrations. However, according to my knowledge based on some grimoires it states that you may ask wisdom from angels and service from a demon. That Angels give knowledge of treasures, and of divine importance and wisdom beyond man or beast, but they cannot do anything for you meaning they are your teachers which in a way can be quiet annoying since you have to summon another demon to do some other work, although some people trust demons with literally their lives "Some Satanists", then that is their belief but I would rather keep mine. If you were somehow offended by this post, I was simply stating the knowledge I had.

Artezia provides a very good response to this question. I will add what my research has provided, including some history on the subject.

Angels were originally heavenly nymphs, like Hindu apsaras, who dispensed sensual bliss to the blessed ones. Persians called them Houris, or Peris (fairies). A guardian angel was a personal Shaki who watched over a man and took him into her ecstatic embrace at the moment of death. Basically they are dispensers of joy. Biblical angels were sons of God.

Angels were later called demons, or incubi, or "fallen" angels. The Book of Enoch blamed women for the angels' fall. Women had "led astray the angels of heaven." In the magic Papryi, the words angel, spirit, god, and demon were interchangeable. When St. Paul said women's heads must be covered in church "because of the angels," he meant the daemones (demons) supposed to be attracted to women's hair.

The Greeks thought each person had an individual guardian angel or daemon which could appear in animal form, and under Christianity evolved into the "familiar spirit." There were no really well-defined distinctions between angels, demons, familiars, fairies, elves, saints, genii, ancestral ghosts, or pagan gods. Among supernatural beings one might always find many hazy areas of overlapping identities, even "good" or "evil" qualities being blurred.

With this historical background I would say angels and demons are what you experience them to be.

Without being a biblical scholar just taking it from the standpoint of the bible, though angels and demons differ depending on ones beliefs, the way I have interpreted it demons were angels who sided with Lucifer and were cast out of heaven along with him falling from grace and being dubbed fallen angels. Most picture demons being hideous beings and angels being beautiful, but once again from a biblical standpoint demons are supposed to tempt humans into sinful acts so what is more tempting a hideous beast with horns or a beautiful being? Angels and demons likely look alike but the true difference from a biblical standpoint would be their goals and temperaments. I find the other answers very interesting and as stated it in the end is altered or shaped by the person's perceptions, ideas, beliefs, etc... as their are many different opinions regarding angels and demons.

One man's angel is another man's demon. It all depends on the perspective of the person.

Demon or Daemon: Divine intity.
Angles are actully another word for demons, which believed to have been abducted by christianity to describe their mythical beigns that represents goodness and divinity, and leaving the original term Demon/Daemon to represent evil, hatred and undivinty.
Simply put, Demons/Daemons and Angles are both the same thing. One may wish to call evil ones demons and good ones angles, but in truth both are one. That is being the divine intities that has been worshipped for thousands and thousands of years by the gentile people.

From what I know the only difference is the title. Some times the demons of one religion are angels of another and the opposite. The only real difference is intent and declarence. Some beings declare themselves as evil and demonic and intend to harm evereyone and so evereyone calls them a demon while other times a being declares they are an angel and some agree while others say they have evil intent so they are declared a demon. It is all a mater of belief and perspective.
