Seattle-based Christian metallers DEMON HUNTER have finished tracking a brand new album in their hometown. The CD sees the band reuniting with producer Aaron Sprinkle (ANBERLIN, EMERY) and mixer Jason Suecof (ALL THAT REMAINS, TRIVIUM) with a collection of songs emphasizing the band’s strongest components: true metal, dark rock and balladry.
Ryan Clark, Tim “Yogi” Watts (drums), Jonathan Dunn (bass) and Patrick Judge (lead guitar) are now joined by their longtime friend Jeremiah Scott (guitar), whose credits as a metal musician (THE SHOWDOWN) and producer (LIVING SACRIFICE) are well established.
“This record is without a doubt our most aggressive,” said vocalist and band co-founder Ryan Clark.
“Every DEMON HUNTER record must be a step up from the last. I know that’s a goal for every band, but it seldom works that way — especially today, especially in metal. It seems like most bands’ prime years are long behind them. I refuse to let that be the case for us,”
“We’ve been extremely underwhelmed with metal for the last five years or so, and that’s been the fuel to create this record. With an extreme over-saturation of false, fleeting, trend-hopping noise in today’s metal scene, we had to make something we’ve been longing to hear. Something truly meaningful and artistic. Something our fans would love and something that will turn the heads of those who have ignored us for the past decade.”
The new DEMON HUNTER album is tentatively scheduled for an April release through longtime label home Solid State.
DEMON HUNTER tour dates:
April 27 – Seattle, WA @ El Corazon
April 30 – Kouvola, Finland @ Vappugospel
DEMON HUNTER recently released “The World Is A Thorn” Digital Deluxe Edition, which contains the band’s music video for “Collapsing” and four acoustic tracks, including the never-before-heard cover of the ALICE IN CHAINS classic “Down In A Hole”.
