“And all those broken promises I can’t face. Afraid if someone notices, I lose my place, fractured, broken, paralyzed. I need some space, tear me open, analyze. This isn’t me I used to say. All the love was so gone. It feels good to be alive. I’ve been dead for so long.” Demon Hunter – My Throat is an Open Grave

Demon hunter: A fictional character that is unshakable in his resolve to reach an end that is beyond his means as a corporeal human. He’s a being that’s so unyielding about his final objective that he creates a world consisting of fury and pain; yet he still sees the beauty and grace of the world in which he lives. Wedged between his inner turmoil and the reality of his existence; he has no choice but to adapt and keep moving.

The new self-titled album by Demon Hunter isn’t just another nu-metal album that steps up to the table with impotent metal riffs with shallow anthems of deceit and betrayal. Instead, it reads more like a series of letters from a faithful servant who is struggling. He’s struggling to deal with his inadequacies. He’s fighting to maintain his composure in the face of trials. He’s even struggling to stay faithful. He’s asking for help, and it’s clear that he needs it.

The entire concept of Demon Hunter is fairly ambiguous in nature. When the band was first trumpeted, shrouded in mystery, I (along with throngs of others) nearly dismissed it as an audacious attempt to get some press by making the whole group (and their past bands) one big secret (see Slipknot). This only leads the naysayer to a pre-determined conclusion that Demon Hunter has no redeeming value. This conclusion turned out to be not only premature and foolish, but flat out wrong.

Although vagueness seems to engulf them, the group pulls together a rock-solid album that is aggressive, remorseful, passionate, and painful. Listeners will be drawn into their world of Demon Hunter (to an intimate level at times) as you are guided by fiery lyrics, growling guitars, and amazing programming as you plot through the well-worn path of metal. It’s good that the hunters are out; you’re just lucky that they’re on your side.

    Amazing Review! You topped it off man! Demon Hunter is one of the most interesting bands out there.. I think they should keep the faith and go mainstream.. And blow away crap bands like slipknot,korn,limp biscuit!

  • tom

    i think the album is great, and the more trash i hear about the cd i give more and more credit to the band. There 100% better then the “masked men” (slipknot) who completly sucked on there album IOWA. DEMON HUNTER is a great band and they deserve to be respected in a music industy without a lot of christian bands. Demon Hunter knock em dead.

  • Sean

    It’s nice to see an alternative to all these bands out there promoting such negative ideals (i.e. slipknot, limp, mudvayne) Hate runs rampid in todays metal genera and it’s nice to see a positive metal band emerge to the forefront of the metal industry…keep it up boys…long live the Hunter Tribe

  • Bob

    Hey ahh i heard some of this album and it sounded good… but is the band a bunch of christians or something? That sux if they are, as if you would follow that. Anyway, if they’re christian then they’re messed up, so they must make messed up music. I wouldnt listen to them now. But then again, I hate christianty. I am a christianburner.

  • The Theory

    hah. you’re messed up if you’re rejecting music because of the member’s personal beliefs.

    i mean seriously.

    peace.

  • alan

    i could understand not listening to something because you didnt like the message but not because of the people who make it’s beliefs. That plus if youre into extreme music and refuse to acknowledge the incredible bands out there that are christian and sound heavier and better than secular stuff…check out these bands:

    Living Sacrifice, Norma Jean, Underoath, actually heres some sites where you can find better stuff:

    http://www.solidstaterecords.com
    http://www.facedownrecords.com

    peace

  • The Theory

    i, on the other hand, am going to say don’t bother going to the solid state website… they only have one or two decent bands.

    facedown has some great stuff… but some crap, too.

    peace.

  • Chaos A.D.

    I heard through the black by demon hunter and thought it was great, but to find out that they are christians is very disapointing to me, i mean, would a christian listen to anti-religious music? No. So you can see why I, a non religious person, does not want to listen to christian lyrics being blasted at me, even though the music to it is good, but demon hunter are nothing against slipknot’s much heavier blasting insanity, and overall better metal music. torn and dr. punx must not know what real metal is, ever heard of slayer? need i say more. stay (sic) fuckers

  • The Theory

    only sheltered “religous” people only listen to “religious” music. most listen to whatever.

    but it doesn’t matter either way. i just wanted to make that clear.

    peace.

  • Nobody

    In response to Chaos AD’s comments–even the mighty Slipknot and Slayer pale in comparison to such Christian bands as Living Sacrifice, Zao, Society’s Finest, Noiz, and Crimson Thorn.

  • Nobody

    What happened to Demon Hunter’s sound since their song on the cd: This is Soild State Vol. 3? Whoever remixed them should be extremely remorseful for destroying one of the most origional sounds ever to cross the metal world. Demon Hunter would have sounded so much better if they wouldn’t have been remixed. If you don’t believe me, go get the This is Solid State Vol. 3 cd and listen to that version of “Through the Black”

  • Chaos A.D.

    In respone to Nobody’s theory that Slayer and Slipknot crumble at the likes of the listed christian bands, todays metal, including christian metal has been HEAVILY influenced by bands like Slayer. Slayer gave birth to thrash metal and paved the way for future metal bands like nothing before, until bands like the ones you listed created the infamous “nu-metal”. This christian rock is merely a goody-two-shoes version of filth such as limp bizkit and linkin park. Hopely this nu-metal faze will soon fade and allow black metal to shine with all its glory.

  • andy

    for real. You can’t knock Slayer. However, to say that if you don’t like Slipknot then you don’t know real metal is just dumb. SLIPKNOT IS NOT REAL METAL! Anyone who listens to real metal would laugh at the thought of listening to Slipknot, would probably make fun of those who do listen to Slipknot, and would then beat them up. Those true metal heads are nuts. Anyway, I think it’s really stupid to not listen to an artist because they have lyrics that contradict your own opinions and ideals. A real Christian would not avoid listening to a band w/ a different view than them. If they would avoid it, then they’ll go through life completely ignorant and not know truely why they believe what they believe.

    As for you Slipknot fans out there…go listen to Dillinger Escape Plan and Meshuggah and marvel at the fact that they do all of that w/ ONE drummer

  • Nobody

    Nu-metal? Living Sacrifice, Zao, And Crimson Thorn have all been around for over ten years. They were playing death metal from its beginings.

  • thermik

    What is wrong with people who say Slipknot and nu-metal is not metal? Metalheads in general are such snobs when concerning music. They shelter themselves in their favorite metal genre and won’t stick their heads out to see what is happening out there. If you don’t like what I like, you suck and don’t know shit about metal. This is such a looser mentality.

  • The Theory

    *psh* Zao is metalcore… Living Sacrifice just sucks.

    peace.

  • http://www.kalyr.com/weblog Tim Hall

    Thermik, you’re absolutely right. Of course, it’s not just adolescent metal-heads that have that sort of attitude; many people in the dance music scene are just as bad.

    Narrow sub-genres only exist so idiots know what to listen to.

  • andy

    Nu Metal is metal for the masses. Listener friendly more accessable. It’s pop music. It’s mall metal. Kids who go to the mall, look in the “metal” catagory, and pick out the “toughest” looking band.

    Nu Metal is the EXACT same thing as glam rock. It was the pop culture trying to cash in on a very large underground movement, and frankly, it’s all quite silly.

  • PYRO

    HEY 2 WHOEVER READS THIS I AM A CHRISTIAN AND PROUD 2BE. AND THIS BOB KID WHO THINKS HE IS A “CHRISTIANBURNER” DUDE, YOU NEED HELP! I BELIEVE THAT DEMON HUNTER IS THE BEST BAND I HAVE EVER HEARD. AND WHEN MY BAND PLAYZ AT A GIG I’LL MAKE SURE TO DEDICATE A SONG TO YOU AND YOUR “NON-BELIEVING” FRIENDZ!!! NOT TO BE MEAN OR NETHING BUT YOU TOTALLY OFFENDED MY FRIENDS,FAMILY AND I.

IT MATTERZ TO EVERYONE TO STATE OUR OPINIONS BUT IT KINDA HURTS WHEN YOU CALL US SICK F***ERS. IF SOMEONE FEELS TO RESPOND PLEASE DO,I’M ALL ABOUT DIFFERENT IDEAS SO WRITE BACK PEOPLE!!

  • SillyPuttyMan

    First off, Demon Hunter is better than any band because they are Christian. Second, Slipknot has great music, but their lyrics suck and don’t make any sense. “I can handle anything even if I can’t handle you.” Kinda contradicts itself a little in the song “(sic).” But the lyrics still suck such as in Heretic Anthem, “If your 555 I’m 666″ and their other devil-worshipping lyrics. But, they have gone to the worst music they could go to… Stone Sour. First off, they will never make it singing light-rock. Plus their lyrics really suck. Don’t listen to them folks, they diss Jesus in the song I heard (Get Inside). Finally, I have to say, even though their lyrics and everything are good, bands like Living Sacrifice, Zao, Still Breathing, Soul Embrace, and others still aren’t any good. They are too slow and the vocals don’t go good with the music. Just my opinion… If you like them, then don’t fuss or get mad at me…

  • GothThug666

    First of all, puttyman your dumb…if you would open up instead of hearing what your bullshit mind will tell you and see the message that slipknot was trying to get across, they were saying that life is allways contridicting itself and that you are nothing. no one will ever surpass the greatness of slipknot, and corey taylor and james roots fucked up for rejoining stone sour, but its there life and they can do what they want to do, but stone sour sucks ass, scept for get inside and tulmet. I am anti-religious, loath and dispise christians…but still just because demon hunters members are christian doesn’t change the fact that there music and lyrics are awesome and everyone should listen to them, and I don’t agree that you should just stop listening to them due to their religion. demon hunter is a great band…

  • PYRO

    Hey goththug666 I think your full of crap. seirously where do you get off callin’ puttyman dumb? 2nd of all as I have said before please do us a favor and don’t curse on this site. I am sure you could be a cool kid and all but me and probably alot of other people are gettin’ a bad vibe from you. If you have a problem with me then say so!

  • PYRO aka JR.

    UM, I didn’t mean to offend you or get mad at you. I was just a little edgy after reading what Chaos A.D, Bob, Thermik and GothThug666 wrote. I didn’t mean to come off as a bad chick here. It’s just when I see somethin’ that dissapoints me I like to express my feelings through my band songs or in my journal. I know this is off subject but are you cute??!! I just broke up with my boyfriend and I am having a hard time!*! NNAA, dude I’m just messin’ around,but seirously write me back.maybe we can have a friendship or somethin’ not just you to any heavy metal/punkish dude who likes to have fun with chicks!lots a LUV!

  • GothThug666

    Dump=as in unable to speak, is why I called putty that, putty didn’t know the meaning of that certain part of the song and shouldn’t lash out befor knowing the whole portion of what was going on. Sorry about the language before, I’m just knew to the site. No I have nothing against you pyro, you able to speak and have your own opinion as well, I’m not one to take that from you. Everyone gets a bad vibe from me…every one hates me…so what does it matter…

  • PYRO aka JR.

    Listen GothThug nobody hates you. I surely don’t. It’s ok everybody has their bad sides and good sides. For me when I am PMS I usually just go in my room and listen to my heavymetal music or I get in a rampage and start hittin’ people or yellin’. So I’m sorry about before, and I hope you accept my apology. Just another note, You are special to everyone and you matter to everyone and me.

  • http://www.angelfire.com/rebellion/morpheus10 Spellbinder

    Hating is bad. Even if you have no religion hating is the worst thing you can do. PMS is bad too but I don’t have to worry about that. :)
    Demon Hunter rocks. I regard their music very highly. Their lyrics are about 500 times better than Slipknot’s, and they do it all without swearing- unlike Slipknot, who have to swear after every other word to get their point across.
    To reiterate- Demon Hunter owns. Who cares if it’s religious or not? I’m going to listen to them no matter how many christianburners blast them.

  • PYROakaJR.

    YA know what you seem like a cool guy(or girl) and your right Demon Hunter is the best!! So how old are you? I guess 15. Is that right? Well you’ll have to guess my age cause theres alot of freaks out there. Slipknot has no right to make fun of religon/god. You know What Band is even better? My band. It’s called UNKNOWN.

  • Phunky

    If you don’t like the music go cry about something else. If you your so hung up on not like a band because their christians, does that make you better? NO! If you think judge people on their beliefs- then you my non friend are a person that desrevse to be judged. So the next time you hear a band dig or don’t (for the talent). I have been reading some of these comments that people send, and one question comes to mind “Did someone very cool say to listen to a certain band”. I like just about every style of music including different metal (whatever the title). I used to listen to rap only, but I guess I rebelled. Just because a person is a different color or race doesn’t mean that their “type” of music is wrong. I do like “nu-metal” also because of its blend of racial cultures- I think thats awesome. Just listen, like, dislike, and then judge first! We are (hopefully) in the second grade here. Thats all.

  • http://none TwiZZler

    Ok, ive been readin this stuff about slipknot and all that, and yes they contradict them selves purposly, the if your 555 in 666 thing means if your gonna be a prick, if your gonna judge me, well go ahead, i dont care. and yes, living sacrafice kicks big jesus ass (no offense by that). But my band, shadows of calvary (yes were christian) is better. oh, and by the way, just because your christian doesnt mean you cant cuss, do drugs, or play secular music, its all in a persons taste. most christians i know try to be better than every body when there made just as equal as some damn broke bum on the side of the road beggin for money to buy his daily booze. so you guys get my point

  • http://www.demonhunter.net chris

    twizzler,

    your argument for a no-standard christian lifestyle is wishful thinking on your part. i can’t even begin to relate all of the scriptures which contradict the points you’re trying to make. whether you like it or not, there is a higher calling that christ has called us to. if christ himself was willing to die for you, living for him shouldn’t be too much to ask. if you in fact actually believe that salvation does not warrant a change of life, then please stop sharing the gospel – we can be heathens just fine on our own.

  • joe

    Living sacrifice appears to be one of the best bands iv’e heard so far..Iv’e listend to Demon hunter and thought they were great.However, they seemed to be tainted with a slipknot feel.Some of the great bands in the Christian sceen are Norma jean, travail(even though they sound alot like korn)indwelling(which include members from overcome), overcome,embodyment, fewleftstanding,Nodes of ranvier,justifide,zao,stillbreathing…theres alot more out there two check it…I think all this new metal stuff is kinda lame..lol I mean what does that mean anyway? Nu metal? As if it differes from old metal or something..Ive listend to bands like cannabal corps, and obituary and the occasional fear factory and all metal sounds some what the same..The only differance is the message..I’m a christian and I’m glad to hear more Christian hard core bands out there with a positive message…bands like slipknot and mudvayn sound good. However, lack substance in what ther’re trying to say…The message in almost every hard core secular band always has a negative attitude about life and /Christ almighty.. I don’t like this genaration of music because it sends a bad message to the youth today and sends a hopeless reality of the future…. p.s i know i can’t spell so please dont slam me to hard lol In Christ Jesus who lives!!!!!!!! joe

  • http://www.christianburner.com love4him

    perhaps you should visit christianburner.com to see what a real christianburner is like. go on… git!

  • http://slipdollnegative drew

    joe i couldnt agree wit u mor that for da most part all metal sounds generally the same u jus have to pay close attention and catch da differences and although some metal these days is pumpin dirty crap into these kids but u have steer to a direction in which your music isnt desciding your life and separating u into a category but u should be mature enough to say yes this is what i listen to but that doesnt define who i am and doesnt get in the way of my christian duties i love manson and slipknot and murderdolls but i still stand proud as a christian. cause even if christian metal is defining your life it still categorizing u just be real w everyone and dont get caught up in categorization

  • derk

    Demon hunter is a great band. Now Im not much of the christain type but that doesnt mean I dont recognize a good christian band when I hear one. If the music is good than it doesnt matter.Demon hunter has many maybe all the vocal talents that corey taylor has and they are lyricly one of a kind.Why diss on bands that dont follow your beliefs. Im sick of hearing, “oh thats christain music, christianity sucks,”or, “oh Im a christian music listener I dont like slipknot, they are against what i believe, they suck.” If you do not like a band that doesnt mean they suck, You can respect anything in life w/o liking it. Guess what, You can even respect music for the talent and not the individuals beliefs.

    Thanks Derk W

  • exgratia

    I stumbled accross this site trying to find some TFU lyrics. Wow. Most of you guys are for one, way too young to be holding ideals such that you are. Foir one thing, demon hunter is horrible. Sorry, but it’s truth. “Oh, lets be uncreative, and use the same chords over and over again…and we’ll try and get our drums to sound like a machine gun just like metallica did 20 years ago.” If you want some good, creative, pro-Christ music, look at Zao, Norma Jean, Training for Utopia, FewLeftStanding. If you don’t care to about the band’s beliefs, and just want good, creative, talented music, look no futher than the likes of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge, Every Time I Die. If you hate christianity, you don’t know christianity. You know white washed tombs and stained glass windows. Those who spoke to you were never the homes to the God they tried to show you. They spoke out of prejudice and ritualism. They themselves were lost. Christianity is not a religion, as it is known to be under popular belief. Christianity is for the stong minded individuals who want to read the Bible and learn for themselves, and not sit and be spoon-fed by some pastor, who stresses rituals and traditions. That is not Christianity. The bible is the most textually perfect historic book we have to date, but is not given credit, because it is so perfect, it’s considered impossible…so the Illiad by Homer is credited, which doesn’t even come close. I won’t give you the facts, you can just go find the information about it for yourself. So don’t go judge Christianity for what you have heard from word of mouth, how about you go pick up a bible, and learn for yourself, and if you are dilligent and study, you will find that it is perfect, and pure, and true. In the beginning there was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. He gave us this incredible, impossible book, and you have the audacity to not even attempt to learn what it says. You want your own mind? You want to make your own decisions? You want to think for yourself? Choose that path, but I assure you that we cannot think for ourselves…because we are foolish, feeble human beings. Take the mind that He has given you and put it to good use. Research the things you question, and find answers for the questions you don’t even know you have. I can go on forever, but I will choose not to take up to much bandwidth. That is all.

    Exgratia, after rereading your post, I see that my comment could be taken as a direct response to it. Actually, I was responding to the entire collection of 59 posts above mine, which seemed to devolving into a state of incoherence. Just ignore what I wrote. It’s nothing.

  • Travis

    Demon Hunter rocks!!! I wont say their sound is better than Slioknot’s (anybody who does is lying) but it is as good. But, Slipknot’s lyrics suck so Demon Hunter is better. New Hunter CD coming out this summer, look for it! I’ll be praying for all ya’ll devil worshipers, too.

  • Fallon

    demon hunter is prolly the best band ive heard in a while. i listened 2 slipknot 4 a while but that stuff just messed up my life, i aint goin into details. anyway, christianburner(s) im prayin 4 ya. demon hunter is not as fast/upbeat with their drums, as slipknot is, but they still keep a nice speedy beat,

  • Fortune Passed Me By…

    Christianity, eh? An interesting debate in the most part. Not for me, I’m afraid. Please judge me at will. I stumbled across this site looking for Demon Hunter info. I’ve gotta say, this album restored a lot of my faith in music. Great music, great lyrics. The lyrics are not in the slightest preachy (believe it or not guys, those who preach into the masses usually only reach the converted…) and as such are as upbeat as they are angry. With some amazing riffs and some innovative drumming, it is an all-round great. And yay for them if they happen to have personal beliefs, they’ll still be next to Paradise Lost, Lacuna Coil, Deicide, Slayer, Slipknot, and many, many other diverse metal acts in my CD rack. Music is music. If you wanna take something from the lyrics, then do so. If you don’t like what the people say, why not just dismiss the lyrical content and view the music as a piece of art, not a piece of scripture. Hey, just my opinion, but if you like the sound of the music, why not like it for that on it’s own right? Anyone heard any ‘Christian’ Death Metal? Sounds a lot like regular Death Metal, only difference is the lyrical inferrences…

  • Cuzzoerc

    OK i think demon hunters is one of the best bands i ever herd. along with some other good ones (i.e. chevell,blindside,pillar,ferther seems forever)O yea their all christain too.so whats the big deal with christians.they rock!

  • colbius

    DEMON HUNTER F***ING ROCKS!!!! hehehe, don’t get why they’re not comming to boston though :(. anyways, I personally thank the Lord for demon hunter’s existance seeming as my only choices for some Christian metal were either too soft (pod, creed) or too hard (zao) for my tastes, and I couldn’t relate to them even CLOSE to as much as I can to demon hunter. I personally have attempted suicide before, and my beliefs in God are the only things that stopped me. I personally also listen to slipknot AND stone sour AND cannible corpse, and the like, so even though I’m a Christian I’ve still manage to accurately recognize good music. anyways, I wanted to say more but now I’ve gotta run, so let me end with saying NU METAL ISN’T JUST A F***ING TREND!!! it’s a distinct style of music. I’ll give you a lot of em are sellouts but I didn’t become a fan because they had money, I did it for the sound. stay sic.

  • Blipmonk

    A few clarifications:

    -Demon Hunter is an incredible band. They are also Christians. These are two separate things. They and countless others have made this clear, and we should respect their wishes. This is their self-definition as a band we’re talking about here.

    -God is glorified by good music of His people that pertains truthfully to Him, but I seriously doubt He considers Himself glorified by any old good music. Demon Hunter addresses important attitudes, feelings, and issues in poetic, subtle ways, and that’s what is so great about them lyrically. God wants His people to think; of that I’m sure. Consider the implications of writing lyrics that are too blatant or too inaccessible, and then consider this: The worst mistake a sincere Christian band (or band of Christians) can make is to make themselves ignorable.

    -Maybe we should stop evaluating lyrics based on their “spirituality” and look at what they are actually trying to say. Insights that aren’t specifically about God can have a great impact on life, Christianity, relationships with others and with God, and all kinds of other important things. Stop letting others do your thinking for you!

    -I don’t understand how one can consider the first mix of Through the Black “better.” Poor sound quality does not equal “better.” It was a demo! They could have recorded that song in a bedroom with a four-track and it wouldn’t have sounded much different. I’ve done it before. If an artist recreates something over a period of time, you can pretty much say that they consider the second time around the “better” of the two (picky record labels excepted, but Solid State doesn’t seem to discriminate too heavily).

    “I’ve never been the type to turn my back and run. It never appealed to me to be the same as everyone.”

    I was looking for a slipknot site when i stumble on this cristain heap of twited crap. fist of I have cristian friends and love ever one of them, they know how i stand on there beliefs, and give my respect, unlike most, 90% you cristians out there go to church not becaues you love and belive, you fear, you fear “SATAN” satan is the holy boogie man made up by jesus to gain power. Always remember that more people have died in the name of god than anything else “God saves” my balls

  • Tyler

    and annother thing “demon hunter” aka fairy chasers sucks so bad i can’t even steal there music from kazaa… losers. Opps I’m going to hell! i stole! how bad!
    im like robin hood, steal from the rich cristains and give to the poor heritics!

  • Doug

    Hey Tyler, you need to open your eyes. Not all christians are pre-judging people, God said dont judge. Granted there are alot who do and it is wrong. But just to let you know and all the christianburners that have posted in a demeaning way toward the Lords name, I`ll be praying for you.

    Oh and Demon Hunter is pretty cool.

  • Tyler

    -here is a good story-

    I live in a very religoes part of my town and every afternoon one church or another sends it hoards to tyr and steal or money.
    on one of these days a short wel dressed young man came to my door bible in hand.
    i came to the door in my boxers after just woken up (i work nights) he said “have you found jesus”
    “no… come on lets go find him!” i replied motioning toward my living room.he stared at me as i looked uper the offee table yelling “jesus o jesus where are you!” he soon left in discust . the next day i attended church with my step-mom who thinks she will show me the light or something. and i noticed that my boss at my usual summer job had come to church that day. she had fallen in a horse riding accedent a few years ago and is now paralize from the neck doy and only has the use of her left arm. and she couldn’t get in with out me an her huband to carry her up the large entry way steps. that got me thinking, my step moms church which sends out 50 peopleevery summer afternoon to go beg for money and gets at least $2000 a month from the collection plate spend
    all there money on new foors and buses
    and van and basket balls that they diddn’t even think to put a wheel chair ramp in, find something in the bible about greedy people thinking of themselves and not for there fellow man .
    not very god like in “gods house”

  • Danny

    I went to church- a thursday sevice with my family. and i saw my boss there (she was paralized in a car acident) and she and to be carrined by her husband and i up the front steps and that got me thinking. in a church on nearly 1500 people all of them white, rich, and willing to give big bucks to reserve the spot in heaven. but all of there fat asses took too much money for the marble floors and 30ft gold cross
    that they diddn’t spend a dime on a wheel chair ramp. so she had to do what she hate most be carried to her seat with every one staring at her with sligh grimmaces on there faces. It was sad to see her in that state, she was once the best barrel horse rider in the county .
    but a drunk driver ran her off the road , thank fully she was the only person in the truck, but her two horses, one my father breed, Baby Blue was instantly
    killed be the impact. her horse Snowy, Her accilies (i don’t now how tro speel it) tendons wher riped and she had to be put down, my boos live though only to live her life from 35 on as the lone disable person at our church, forgoten,
    alone with only me and her husband to carry her to her seat. I will continue to go to thursday servies to help Abby up the steps and to her seat, but i won’t give any money until they put in a ramp, but they’ll buy a new coffee machine, or a new micriphone, they’ll just turn a blind I to one of the greatest people i have ever met, thats christianity for you.

  • Danny

    Tyler I feel your pain with you Boss, its amazing how two stories can be so alike, my stepmom just recived a phone call from our fanicial coordinator at our church and they have enought money for a nice wheel chair ramp for Abby. this is so awesome i cant wait to get this thing built in time for next saturday.. I hope you are over you anti cristain phase to, i am now regretful of what i said, but there is no use living in the past. Stay (sic)

  • bryan

    people who label dh a ‘christian’ band are fucking ignorant. they hold personal beliefs outside of their music. god-christ-salvation etc are not a subject that is dealt with in their music. so all the jesuskids can stop trying to grab them up and scream with joy that some hardass music is being made about god. dh makes music about self. just because some guy in some band is an athiest doesnt slam his band into the category of athiest rock does it? no. not unless thats all his lyrics talk about. wake the fuck up you douchebags

    disposing of all of my secular cd’s was an incredible experience,,,I traded about 500$ worth of cd’s to cdwherehouse for 20$, and gave about 115$ worth to goodwill, then i gave the 20$ to my church

    The fact that he’s 20$ richer doesn’t please God, it’s the fact that i obeyed him in the work that he did in my life

    the act that i achieved was me showing God that i was willing to have him love me and pull me out of my various insanities and depressions,,,,,, and guess what,,he didn’t fail.

    Every knee will bow and every tounge will confess that He is King!

  • http://049ruofi your mom

    i find demon hunter to be mildly amusing and/or entertaining

    i think its quite obvious that their morbid demeanor and infernal decoration are made to bring in the unsaved metal listeners

    i haven’t heard any ground breaking music lately
    and I’m certainly not saying that demon hunter is what i’ve just mentioned, however they are one of the best christian bands that i’ve heard.

    Dude you guys are messed up. If you don’t like Demon Hunter then don’t listen to them. Christians listen to Demon Hunter, so you are all a bunch of idiots. We (christians) aren’t pounding you over the head with our music if you want to listen to slayer and slipknot that is fine with me. But personally i hope that slpiknot slips a knot in a rope and hangs themselves with it! hahaha

  • TristaLou1

    I almost don’t even know what to say to all of you. I am disappointed that non-believers automatically do not want to give christian music a chance just becouse thier christians. I am a 21 yr old christian with a child and a fiance who is not a christian and I hear the same thing from him day in and day out. I personally only like a couple of slip-knot songs but I do not dis them becouse they ar not christian, but there is something about demon hunter that I just love and it is not becouse they are christian becouse I personally would have to say some of my fav, bands are Korn, Limp, and many others like them. I listen to that music becouse I like the sound. As long as you are not taking the lyrics to heart and going out and jumping off a bridge to kill yourself or anything else bad I feel that it is okay. I even have two sisters that work at a christian radio station, but honestly I only like a very few of the bands, but the ones I like I really like.
    This whole thing just amazes me. I like switchfoot and would listen to them and try to tell my fiance that they were good and he refused to listen to them becouse they were christian and now that they have made it into mainstream he likes them alot. I think that non-christians should atleast give the music a chance and if you dont like it fine thats okay and christians shouldn’t judge the secular music either.
    And a comment to an earlier post someone said that they were christian and that its okay to do drugs. It is not! There is verse that says that our bodys are a temple for God and to not defial it, which would include drugs, sleeping around, smoking, and anything else that would make you unclean and potentially hurt you.

    A WORD TO CHRISTIANS TRY VERY HARD NOT TO FALL IN LOVE WITH AN UNBELIEVER, NOT THAT THEY ARE BAD. ITS JUST THAT IT IS SO HARD TO BE WITH MY FIANCE SOMETIMES BECOUSE HE DOES NOT LIKE ANYTHING CHRISTIAN (EXCEPT FOR ME OFCOURSE). HE MAKES ME FEEL SOMEWHAT STUPID FOR BEING A CHRISTIAN SOMETIMES. YOU KNOW NORMAL COUPLES FIGHT ABOT MONEY AND PRESSING MATTERS, BUT NOT US OUR FIGHTS ARE OVER CHRISTIANITY AND IF ITS RIGHT OR NOT.

    Oh and also this is how I look at my chritianity now, I believe in God not knowing for sure if He really exists or not, and if it turns out that I am wrong and he is not real and when I die I just die and thats it. Then oh well. it didn’t hurt me to believe in God, And if anything it gave me a better outlook on life and gave me something to make this life a little bit easier thinking that there was a God out there that loved me and was waiting for me to come to him and just cared enough for me to give his only son (which by hte way when you become a parent that will open your eyes even more to that sacrifice).
    So thats it. I am so sorry for going on so long.

  • TristaLou1

    1 Corinthians 6:18-20 are the verses that talk about your body being a temple to God.

  • Semper_Punk

    I can see why non-Christians would not like Christian music. We, as people, see things not as they are…but as we are. Hmmm.
    Anyway…Demon Hunter rocks! It is not crap like Slayer and all the et ceteras. Demon Hunter is making a cool movement. I believe I heard that a band member or members had admitted to hiding their faith a bit…but now they plan to be more outspoken (but this is just a rumor…check it out though). Also on the ropes is Killswitch Engage…and look out! All Heavy Metal fans have heard of Sepultura…which Max left to make Soulfly. Soulfly is making ground…I leave it up to you to decide…but they are defiantely IMO making a move in a Christian direction. I pray that Max…and his future project (whoever he picks as his next lineup) go all out…the way Bob Dylan did when he made 3 Christian albums. But you can do some pickings among Soulfly’s 3 and Prophecy. A must would be, Tree of Pain, of off the album 3, and Moses off of Prophecy.
    Also props to P.O.D. Without Jah nothin…I think its called…is awesome. Picking up that dude from the band Bad brains to help on that. And Blindside bringing in Smashing Pumpkins singer to play some guitar? Weird.
    Hmmm. Well…there is my piece. I have no clue how I got here. But God bless ya…and I can’t wait for Demon Hunter to come out with a new album.

    post script: that DH vid of the, This is Solid State IV is awesome!!!!! What a powerful, heartfelt vid. Peace.

    Jesus is real, God is real. Just look at our money it cleary states on every bill “in GOD we trust”. Jesus has died for us all. See the Passion Of the Christ. This is the best explanation of who Christ is.

    Demon Hunter you are my favorite band. Over here in Napoleon i cant get a hold of your cd I have went to billions of different places. But just my luck i cant find it. But believe me i will get both cd’s. when i heard you guys on the radio on the loud planet on yes fm. I was like i really like this song and i grew to love you guys. But i love you guys and keep the tracks coming.

  • John

    Demon Hunter is and musically an awsome band, like slipknot, slayer, and some others .. Same MUSICAL level, but im a christian and i cant say i dislike bands like slipknot, children of bodom and slayer, but i avoid listening to them, because they praise downstairs FREAK that dared to defy God our Lord Creator and Savior ! Its non-sense to do such, thats what makes Slipknot, Children of Bodom and slayer bad bands .. They are great musicians, i agree, but its such a waste ..
    Demon Hunter is a great example to show some people that christianty has nothing against Heavy loud songs or whatever other styles, tattos, body piercings, etc.
    IS THE WAY U USE THEM THAT MATTERS ..
    If u use to do good, Great ! if u use to evil, too bad..
    I feel very pitty for those who never had the chance to be in the presence of God, people who think churches only exists because greedy people steal someone by faith (and its true, some people actually steal inside some churches, but those are fake chritians.. churches sometimes are full of those, and they made those who doesn’t know chritianty think all bad thing we all know non-religious people say about churches), those who were tought and raised to hate God and worship the devil (sometimes not literally), and opened all the doors possible to have the devil using their lives, setting them as far away from God as possible.. CAUSE THATS WHAT SATAN DOES ! HE HAS NO CHANCE AGAINST GOD OR HIS ANGELS, SO HE USED ALL ALL ALL POSSIBLE THINGS U CAN EVER IMAGINE TO MAKE U DENY GOD, AND WHEN U DO, EVEN NOT REALIZING IT, U START TO BE APART FROM GOD AND SATAN HAS POWER OVER UR LIFE, AND ONCE HE DOES HAVE A SLIGHT INFLUENCE IN UR LIFE HE MAKES U WONDER ABOUT ANY SMALL THING U KINDA DISLIKE IN UR CHURCH AND MAKES U WONDER “WHY IS THAT SATANIST HAPPIER THAN ME? I DO EVERYTHING BY THE RULES OF GOD AND HE DOES THE OPOSITE, AND HES SO MUCH HAPPIER THAN ME” BUT LET ME REMIND U, THE HAPPIEST THEY CANT GET (I MEAN EVERYTHING APPARENTLY PERFECT) DOESNT REACH 1% OF ANY CHRISTIAN, CAUSE WHEN U HAVE A GOOD LIFE WITH GOD THERES NO EQUAL PLEASURE, ITS THE TRUE HAPPINESS !
    IVE BEEN ON THE OTHER SIDE AND I KNOW WHAT IS THE WORLD’S IDEAL OF HAPPINESS..

    THINK ABOUT THIS: WHY DOES SATAN ONLY PICKS ON CHRISTIANTY ?? WHY HE WANTS HES “FOLLOWERS” TO HATE CHRITSTIANTY ??

    HES FREAKING AFRAID OF IT ! IF A PERSON MEETS GOD TRULLY, SATAN AND HIS DEMONS HAVE NO POWER OVER HER, AND THATS 1 LESS SOUL TO TORMENT IN HELL(HE DEVOURS PAIN AND SUFFERING FROM TORMENT SOULS, THATS WHERE HIS POWERS COMES FROM) !

    SATAN GIVES POWER FOR THOSE WHO WORK FOR HIM, THATS TRUE, BUT THOSE CANT DREAM OF USING THEM AGAINST A CHRITIAN, AND ANY GIVEN ANGEL CAN DESTROY 1000 DEMONS WITH 1 SMITE !

    THERE ARE INFINIT WAYS THAT SATANS TRY TO GET OR KEEP U AWAY FROM GOD !

    HE USES UR CURIOSITY, HE USES A FRIEND WHO DOESNT KNOW GOD, HE USES TEMPTATIONS, HE USES CRUSHES,HE USES PEOPLE THAT ARE INSIDE CHURCHS ONLY FOR INTERESTS TO BURN THE NAME OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCHS, HE USES SEVERAL DIFERENT OTHER RELIGIONS, SOME EVEN TALK ABOUT GOD, BUT FAKELY !

    SO BE VERY CAREFUL, AND DONT FORGET UR LIFE WITH GOD IS THE PRIMARY THING IN UR LIFE! UR FAMILY, UR FRIENDS, UR CARRER, UR STUFF, ETC EVERYTHING IS A DETAIL IN UR LIFE ! DONT LET ANY OF THOSE WEAKEN UR LIFE WITH GOD! AND DONT LET SATAN CONVINCE U THAT GOD WILL NOT FORGIVE UR SINS, CAUSE GOD ALWAYS FORGIVES UR SINS !

    GOD BLESS U ALL, AND HELP SOME OF U WHO POST HERE TO OPEN UP UR MIND TO WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG !
    U HAVE NO IDEA OF WHAT IS ACTUALLY GOOD AND PLEASANT, TRY GOD, THATS THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE SOMEONE CAN EVER GIVE U!
    AND PAY ATENTTION TO WHAT PEOPLE ARE GONNA SAY ABOUT THS EMAIL! THERE SOMETHING HERE THAT BOTHERS THEM, OR BETTER, BOTHERS SATAN THAT WILL MAKE THOSE PEOPLE SAY A BUNCH OF THINGS TO MAKE U CHANGE UR MIND ABOUT EVERYTHING WRITTEN ON THIS POST (WRITTEN WITH MY FINGERS BY GOD ! IM JUST A TOOL, PROUD TO BE GOD’S TOOL! =D)
    I REPEAT : GOD BLESS U ALL, and those who doesnt know God, start seeking, just becareful where u seek , if u wanna ask me anything, go ahead ICQ:77952100; MSN: tazok_5@hotmail.com, but i think the goin to church helps u to create a habit of spendin time to God, and helps u learn alot from God and in a place where lots of people searches for the same wonderfull thing that u, and having friends like that, praying fro each other makes a perfect combo to maintain ur spiritual life led by God !
    AGAIN : God bless u all

  • demon slayer

    pyro i love you, will u got out w. me lol, i totally agree, i have a band 2, a christian rock band called demon slayer, we sound like a mix between the christian bands underoath & still rmains, i sing & play guitar, w/b my screen name is l0rd slayer ( the o in lord is a zero) on im, talk to me sometime, & no i dont care 4 the metal band slayer, i just love the name slayer, SLIPKNOT IS NOT METAL, THEY JUST SUCK, but if somebody out there likes them i have nothing against them, they can like whatever band they want

  • Xtreme987

    I agree with most here that ALOT and I mean ALOT of metal fans and other stereotypical people need to open up there ears and minds and quit clicheing metal as evil. Sure metal has an evil reputation, big deal so does alot of other music. All I am saying is have an open mind to metal. Remember it is ONLY entertainment, like a good horror movie. If the music is good listen to it. Big deal if Demon Hunter are christians.

    I might add that I’ve noticed alot of metal bands (eg. Hatebreed, Iced Earth, Nightwish, Killswitch Engage, System Of A Down) giving a more truthful, respectful and positive side to their lyrics and to be perfectly honest, that’s the way it should be. Think for a moment … wouldn’t it be nice to hear metal in that kind of perspective for a change. It’s been about 15 years too long now that most metal has depressed me really. I do however want to feel good when I listen to metal and feel moved after.

    And NO I am not a christian. I haven’t really found a religion the best suits me. I don’t agree to almost all religions and all cults. I believe people should take a common sense approach to living & spirituality or make up their OWN minds on what is right and what is wrong.

    Just my opinion folks

    I’m a christian and I think that the christians that say that christian metal doesn’t glorify God are being ignorant. Nobody knows how music is in Heaven or if they even have music in heaven so how can you judge christian metal when it doesn’t even say how music should be in the Bible. In the Bible it says make a joyfull NOISE unto the Lord not a joyfull sound

    Xtreme987, Good call on your comment.

    Because of their personal beliefs, you diss them? Geese, didn’t you know that Korn’s lead guitarist(who was awesome, I might add) left the bad because of people like you?

    Just because Chrsitian music offers a different variety doesn’t mean it’s crap.

    You Say “Oh it’s awesome” until you hear it’s Christian? What’s the deal?

  • Lord_Pentafixtion

    Demon Hunter is not even worth looking at. They cannot touch Real Pure Death Metal. Death Metal puts in perspective the stupid-shit that your saviour has done. I don’t care for anything Christian wise, because bein good for the rest of your life is just BORING! and worshiping a delusional-person for so called forgivness, is just ignorant. The only thing in this world is hate and greed. What does a church need money for.

    I’m a christian, and i’m just as worse as the next guy…I live and serve Christ…I might not act like it all the time, cause no one is perfect, but i strive for it…anyhoo…us christians can’t be critical, everyone has there own beliefs, and christians and non christians shouldn’t put eachother down, because that won’t CHANGE A THING, if they believe that, then hey, let them believe it, all us christians have to do is be lights, and let them believe what they want, we can’t force shove our beliefs down their throats, vice versa. Change yourself b4 you try to change some1else, and i’m not putting anyone down, i know i have to work on things, just saying that we shouldn’t critisize…christians and non christians are equal, we all have issues…we all have problems, and we have to deal w/ them on our own bases, and by the way…Demon Hunter is pretty good…bands like slip-knot and slayer aren’t any worse then them, if they want to sing like that, then hey christians, don’t put them down, that’ll just make things worse…and i won’t say, “go change yourself 1st”…cause i have to change myself too, so i won’t go off and preach, or tell you, “your goin’ to hell!”…cause I as in ME, have to change myself too…

    I love DEMON HUNTER, actually im listening to them right now. But im into more harder music, i also love norma jean but alot of you guys hate demon hunter because of what they believe in, which i think thats really stupid. I used to be a big fan of SLIPNOT,and MARLYN MANSON but after a while i saw that something was’nt right, i was mad all the time, hated my parents and i would also see spirits that wanted me to do suicide.
    Christian metal bands have changed me, just like DH. Band like DH have changed alot of people. i dont anyone should hate them because their music can help them and not just that, i dont know how anyone can hate them because their totally awesome. SO ANYONE GOING TO THIER CONCERT IN 2 MONTHS AT CLUB RETRO CAUSE I AM, CANT WAIT.

    All i gotta say for all you non-believers is for you to open your eyes, read the bible and judge for yourself before you go off to be easily influenced by other non-believers.

  • I wonder

    Wow Dominic, you have certainly come a long way in your ability to spell. I guess twelve year old you was way apathetic. And you’re way too depressed.

  • ImmortalSaint

    i really like Demon Hunter, i found out about them on myspace because they toured with Flyleaf, a really good band fronted by a girl [she can scream, dude!]. I’m looking for Christian bands out there, because one, I am a Christian and i came out of a period of darkness and depression [which God delivered me from] and got into rock/metal/goth music.

    I, personally don’t like it when bands talk smack about God, or scream at me as if i was a load of crap, or talk trash and say hateful, disgusting things into my ears. I personally don’t like bands like Slipknot solely because of their lyrical contents and demonic influences, but they make good music and i can listen to their more mild songs. Korn is also good.

    music is alot more than a sound. we can be influenced by the words we hear and the things that flow into our subconcious. that can explain dreams. but anyways, i’m more confortable with clean, expressive lyrics and great melodies/rythms.

    i’m 14 and have been saved since i was five. yet, i am a sensitive/expressive artist and dress and think how i want but also humble myself before the one God who committed suicide for me.

    most of my friends are satanists, wiccans, athiests. but remember, Jesus ate with sinners and tx collectors. the saddusees and pharisees always asked him why-but it was because Jesus loved everyone!

    another thing, i hate labels! i damn them to hell. I shop at Hot Topic, i dress “goth” if thats wut u wanna call it and i have strange viewpoints about life and death, i’ve been called wierd by wierdos, and misunderstood by everyone [i’m a natural outcast, i dont have to try to be wierd, i just am and alwasy was]. i know what pain is, suffering, torment and depression. i was always teased, picked ona nd envied in school but now i’m stronger because god took away the demon that held me down. i started reading the bible after i prayed, asking god to take away the spirirt that kept me from His book, and i learned so much about the person i worshipped.

    i recommend Matthew of the New Testament. I read normal books, vampire romance mostly and dark poetry, so i guess that a non believer can try and read the bible. they wouldnt undertsand only because sadly, they are blind and spirirtually dead.

    either way, i like christian bands because their music doesnt beat you up, it enlightens you, and reminds you that you have divine love and strength beyond that of even the most powerful people. they remind you that you are a saint, a child of god and your spirirt is alive.

    why thrive in darkness when the light loves you to death, literally? why brood and hate life when you know that all God wants from you is faith, because he loved you enough to come to earth as a man and DIE for your filthy undeserving self?

    humans are disgusting, rotten and nefarious creatures, we are. but when you become saved, you lose the urge to sin, it’s take from you, and you feel like you can fly. your eyes become openned to everything. you can see the demons in people, know when something is bad for you to do.

    think about it. i’m not a preacher, i’m a saint sharing my experiences and reaching out to struggling teens like me.

    like what christian bands do!

    Just to let everyone here know Slipknot sucks very very bad…lol & half of you people that write on here are soooo stupid especially Bob.

    Demon Hunter are an amazing band musically & lyrically.

    I really like Demon Hunter. I stumbled across them on myspace of all places one day and have been listening to them ever since. I probably listen to them several times a day (Sort of like when I discovered Linkin Park, and yes, I know it’s a different genre). The thing that bums me out about Demon Hunter is they never tour! I think their site says they last played NYC in 2004 or some such. I’d love to see them play, but I’m fairly certain after 5 years or more and not being able to see them they will fade from my memory. I’m just trying to put some money in their pockets showing my support. It’s great they don’t need money, I wish we could all say the same thing.
    All in all, I’m glad for the work they’ve done, and their faith, and hope to see them on the East Coast eventually.

    I thank God that Ryan Clark was placed in my life. Their songs have affected my life so much.
