Demon Hunter have finished tracking their upcoming album. “This record is without a doubt our most aggressive,” remarked vocalist 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.”
Clark added, “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.”
Demon Hunter also recently announced the addition of longtime friend Jeremiah Scott, who replaces guitarist Ryan Helm.
The band’s as-yet-untitled record, which was produced by frequent collaborator Aaron Sprinkle, is tentatively set for release in April via Solid State Records.
