Demon Hunter Unveil New Guitarist and New Album
Demon Hunter have revealed that they have enlisted Jeremiah Scott (the Showdown) as their new rhythm guitarist and that the now five-piece has finished tracking their new album. The record is tentatively scheduled for an April release.
“This record is without a doubt our most aggressive,” said vocalist and band co-founder 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.
“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 band has also announced they will play a show at Seattle’s El Corazon on April 27.
