Biography

Seattle, United States (2002 – present)

Demon Hunter is a Seattle based band which first received wide notice in 2002 with the release of their self-titled album Demon Hunter on Solid State Records. Their style is a combination of modern and classic metal sounds, incorporating elements of metalcore and post-hardcore.

Their second album, Summer Of Darkness, was released on the 4th of May, 2004. Their third album, The Triptych was released October 25, 2005. On this album Ethan Luck (The O.C. Supertones, The Dingees) joined as lead guitarist.

On November 4th, 2007 Demon Hunter released their 4th studio album, Storm the Gates of Hell, which became one of their most aggressive sounds ever.

They released Live In Nashville which was recorded during the Stronger than Hell tour in early 2008. It released later that year. Also in 2008 came the 45 Days documentary which gave a behind the scenes look at Demon Hunter.

In late 2009, Don Clark announced that he was splitting from the band due to increasing priorities with both his home life, and his constant workload with the design firm (Invisible Creature) that he and Ryan Clark continue to undertake together. Ethan Luck also left at this time.

On March 9, 2010 the bands 5th studio album, The World Is A Thorn, hit shelves. The album is described by the band as their “heaviest but most melodic” album yet. It was also the first studio album to feature Patrick Judge, who was first introduced on LIve in Nashville. And new collaborations with artists like Christian Älvestam (ex- Scar Symmetry), Bjorn “Speed” Strid (Soilwork), and Dave Peters (Throwdown).

    There are 2 types of music... good music and bad music. If you weren't "told" they were a Christian band one could easily interpret them as just being a deeply spiritual band that clearly believes in a 'higher power'...their sound has a lot of elements of some of my favorite (metal) bands of all-time like Pantera, Soilwork and later Testament. Whether they're "Christian" or not is irrelevant to me

    Extremist has some damn good production and instrumentation....I just hope Ryan's not running out of lyrics inspiration. Artificial Light, The Last One left Alive, I Will Fail You and The Heart of a Graveyard have awesome lyrics, but the rest feel a bit lacking. It'd be awesome if they did more tracks like Artificial Light from now on, though...it sounds like Soilwork mixed with The World is a Thorn's overall style, and it works AWESOMELY!

    I like Extremist, good solid album. But The World Is A Thorn is easily still my favorite!

    The major difference is just how tight the actual band has gotten. This is definitely my favorite DH lineup. Ryan's singing and his vocal hooks have reached another level. "Extremist" is by far my favorite... 2nd favorite is "The Triptych"

    I must agree with these previous Shouts. To me, "Extremist" is one of their best since "Summer of Darkness". There will always be something with "Summer of Darkness" for me, but "Extremist" is amazingly melodic and I love that Ryan has even more cleans in this album. Still and always will be my favorite Christian band.

    Extremist is a great album. [2] In my opinion...overall it is their most evolved and cohesive work to date. It got me hooked on the band for what has now been close to 6 months...They're inside My Top 20 which (if you look at my charts) is miraculous
