Demon Hunter: "We've Been Extremely Underwhelmed With Metal For The Last Five Years"

Demon Hunter has issued the following announcement about finishing working on a new album:

“This record is without a doubt our most aggressive. 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 sees the band returning to producer Aaron Sprinkle (Anberlin, Emery) and mixer Jason Suecoff (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.

Demon Hunter has already lined up live dates for 2012, which include:

APRIL 27 - SEATTLE, WA @ EL CORAZON
APRIL 30 - KOUVOLA, FINLAND @ VAPPUGOSPEL

The new Demon Hunter album is tentatively scheduled for an April release through longtime label home Solid State.
