The Letter Black - "Rise"

The band has released their first single under "Rise." The song is catchy and carries a good message, the band shares "Rise is the story we all know too well. It's about how life doesn't always go the way we think it should. The song goes on to warn that during those pivotal times of re-adjustment, it's important to understand who or what you're allowing to influence your outlook on life. Personally, we'd like to encourage you to rise."

Demon Hunter's 13th studio album is a special one. The band's 20-year-history has gained some fan favorites over the years--especially when it comes to their ballads. Many fans have connected deeply to the softer, more melodic songs. So, the band decided to do something special: a whole new album of reimagined and remastered ballads. I must say that the album is a beautiful and captivating one.
Convictions - "The War That Followed Me Home"
