Good But.....Not Their Best | Posted April 09, 2008
Great songs but.....they seem to be a bit on the generic side. The Tide Began To Rise is a phenomanal song and deserves much more attention. Undying has sweet guitar riffs throughout the track.
Best Song: The Tide Began To Rise

Demon Hunter's third album, The Triptych, is probably best known as their breakthrough album and it's easy to see why.  This album is jam packed with instantly recognizable songs like "Undying" and "One Thousand Apologies."  The band has further polished their sound and it is great.  The fast paced songs sound fast paced and the "ballads" sound appropriate and really mean something overall.  The Triptych is an essential album that every fan of this type of metal should have in their collection.

Still the best DH Album | Posted January 04, 2011
Demon Hunter's fifth album "The World Is A Thorn" was/is a great step for DH, but I will always remember "The Triptych" as their best work. I am eager to review this classic.

It opens up with a haunting choir singing a hymn. It's not interesting, just an opener. It kicks up dust on "Not I". With crazy guitar riffs, pounding drums, and a purposeful chorus, this is easily the heaviest track. Moving on to "Undying", where Clark humbly states in the verse that "without the blood of perfect life, I know I'm nothing at all." You probably won't notice it if you're too busy headbanging. If you listen close, you can tell this one of DH's most powerful songs lyrically, despite the musical attack. The next track, "Relentless Intolerance" is my personal favorite. With perfect guitar accurracy, an onslaught of double bass, and memorable chorus, you can see why. There are nice ballads on tracks 5 and 11 too. "The Soldier's Song" has the best guitars on the album. The eighth track, "1000 Apologies" is almost a pure metal track. "The Science of Lies" deals with the falsehood of Scientology, while "Ribcage" deals with addictions.

All in all, this is still DH's best to date. Don't forget that they refined their sound with this album. Not only that, but it has deep spiritual lyrics that hit hard.

woah | Posted June 23, 2008
nothing but great comes from these guys. my 3 favorite songs would be 'undying', 'ribcage', and 'deteriorate', which were the first 3 i heard but have stuck as my favorites as i listened to the rest of the album. i recommend the delux edition though [;

The Definitive Demon Hunter | Posted February 28, 2008
What I believe to be truly their best album, this CD contains a great mix of the headbanging sound we've come to know and love from them while also offering up ballads like "Deteriorate" and "One Thousand Apologies" and my personal favorite "The Tide Began to Rise". A bit of a surprising sound for them, this album offers everything a Demon Hunter fan could want.
