Posted February 25, 2021

What You Need To Know
Songs of Death and Resurrection is Demon Hunter's 11th studio album. It's a collection of reimagined songs from almost every album in their discography, plus one new original song. Every song is rearranged differently than its original, but the lyrics are still the same.
 
What It Sounds Like
Any fan of Demon Hunter's ballads on their albums will love these songs. There are no hard-rocking songs or metal music on this record. Instead, the band focuses on giving their fan-favorite songs a new creative experience. The band focuses on adding piano and stringed instruments into the songs, increasing the melodic side.
 
Spiritual Highlights
Lead singer Ryan Clark says, "Writing lyrics that resonate deeply has not only become a personal prerequisite but a cornerstone of what fans come to expect from the band." This mindset has been present from the beginning. You can see the consistency just by listening to this discography-spanning record. Writing about the reality of spiritual warfare is ever-present, whether in heavy or soft songs or whether it comes out in an encouraging or somber song. Hope and love remain centerpieces for Demon Hunter.
 
Best Song
The whole Demon Hunter crew, plus a few extras, flexed their creative skills in every way throughout the record. Some songs played different keys or became more upbeat. Some songs that were more full became stripped back. One of the best examples would be the fan-favorite, "I Am A Stone." Ryan Clark, adds "This rendition of the song is more triumphant and proud. It’s less somber than the original, but somehow these changes feel equally fitting." I completely agree. This one definitely stands out, but all are fantastic and have their own touch on the listener.

Bottom Line
Demon Hunter's 20 years of experience is utilized to the max. They prove they still have plenty to give back to fans. Songs of Death and Resurrection is one the most unique personalized records from a metal band in years. Just as some of these songs have been dear to fans in years past, the "resurrected" versions of these will continue to resonate with listeners for years to come.
