Demon Hunter is an Christian metal institution. The band embraces brazenly transcendent melodies, without apology, while maintaining a defiant heaviness reminiscent of the most timeless of metal music. For over a decade, Demon Hunter has weathered the changing tides of rock subculture, proving ever resistant to trends, and ever resilient, making music as determined and resolute as the men within the band.
Demon Hunters dedicated supporters and allies around the world wear the groups symbol, lyrics and album imagery on their shirts, denim vests, backpacks, and uniforms, and in many cases, on their skin. The band has engaged their fans in direct, authentic and personal terms for years, since long before such efforts were seen as strategy.
The groups extended family around the world cherish the bands songs as personal anthems, instruments of empowerment, using them to mark chapters in their lives both good and bad, in celebration and in mourning, from weddings to funerals. Songs like I Am a Stone, Not Ready to Die, Carry Me Down, Collapsing, LifeWar, and Fading Away continue to resonate with fans, even as each successive album elicits ever more fervor from the bands fierce, loyal supporters.
Demon Hunters musical identity is forged from diverse elements that coalesce into a singular electric charge, merging seemingly disparate sound with seamless agility: the energy of Americas thrash metal legends; the catchiness of Europes melodic death metal innovators; the gloomy atmospheric majesty of gothic rock; the song craft of dark romantic pop; and the fist-pumping aggression of Southern groove.
Demon Hunters body of work is born from unwavering commitment, uncompromising creative determination, and stark recognition of the reality of an often-cold world tempered in defiant hope. Its made up of smartly constructed, confessional lyrics; heady and catchy melody; monster riffs; bottom heavy grooves; the collision of meticulous production and urgent raw power; bold imagery and bolder themes.

These guys are excellent and go well beyond that. They're a metal band with a purpose and I have no complaints with anything they've put out. And I cannot wait for, The World is a Thorn, tomorrow!

It is rare to see guys like DH in their 30's but solidly committed to the Word in a dark, dark area of metal music. They are incredibly solid guys, and do incredibly solid music that reflects their love and belief in the King. I wish more 'Christian' metal bands would be more like this.
