Demon Hunter Charts At #85 On Billboard Top 200

Demon Hunter Debut On Charts Seattle-based Demon Hunter packed a punch on their first week in stores with their latest effort Storm the Gates of Hell. Scanning nearly 10,500 units, the album debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #85. The album also made its mark on Metal Radio, scoring a #6 slot at the CMJ Loud Rock chart, Top 10 in Mediaguide’s Metal Specialty Albums and Tracks charts and #15 at FMQB’s Metal Detector.

Storm the Gates of Hell spawned a video for the track “Fading Away” which can be seen on the band’s Myspace page and on MTV2’s Headbangers Ball. The clip was directed by Zach Merck (Hinder, Shadows Fall) and features band performance with stunning visuals. You can check it out at the band's MySpace.

Look for the band to tour in the Summer of 2008 in support of this album.

Yep, because they are Christian metal that makes them emo somehow, good logic.

this cd is actually pretty damn good of course im sure its not up to par with everyones standards on here since it isnt all growling and blast beats making them emo band of course -- other wise if u have an open mind and *gasp* some independent thought check it out

Lol @ M3talH3ad - could you take things any more out of context??

Generic metalcore, it just happens to be even more annoying because it's preachy.

Now Playing: Mastodon - "Megalodon"

This is a good album. Just because its not extreme black metal doesn't mean it's emo or that they're p***ies. Their just a soild metal band that happens to be christian. What does it matter if the music is good?

This is a great album. They may have toned down the lead guitar a bit but they definately stepped up the rhythm. And I also think that people's views on music genres are seriously warped. Demon Hunter is metal, nothing else, and definately not emo. I think people find the most disgustingly vulgar death metal with the deepest growls and fastest nonstop blast beat and anything slower is "emo" to them. Maybe it's anything with singing. I'm not sure, all I know is that emo bands are bands like bright eyes and cursive, not bands like Demon Hunter and As I Lay Dying. As far as the religion thing goes. They sing about what they feel in their hearts, and any band that doesn't do that is lying to themselves.
