For the last eight years, Demon Hunter has been winning over metal fans coast to coast with their brazen brand of hardcore music in the vein of As I Lay Dying. Now a new CD/DVD titled 45 Days takes fans of the Seattle band behind the scenes and into the lives of the five members.

The live recording is taken from a Nashville concert and features some older tunes alongside a heavier set from Storm the Gates of Hell, the band’s 2007 release. Highlights here include a beautiful version of “Carry Me Down” on piano, a stellar performance of “Lead Us Home” and the title track from Storm the Gates of Hell.

The DVD portion is anchored by director Cale Glendening’s strong work behind the camera, gathering artistic shots in the mold of Sigur Ros’ Heima disc out earlier this year. This effort isn’t just celebrating a band making music, but it also focuses on Demon Hunter fans of all ages. It’s a truly artistic endeavor, and the Clark brothers are to be applauded in their choice of direction here.

A second DVD features a Rocketown concert of the audio disc filmed from several angles and offers nothing new in terms of typical concert footage. For fans wanting an inside look, the artistic DVD of 45 Days is definitely worth your time. And if you caught this tour with Demon Hunter and Living Sacrifice, this makes for a great memento of the occasion. –Matt Conner
