BAND BIO

Demon Hunter has always been a Christian band and has represented their point of view strongly, despite the larger trend of watered down philosophies that straddle the line for popularity's sake. This stance has won them respect from fellow believers and opposite points of view alike.

"In this age it has seemingly become more and more detestable to be a Christian," Clark elaborates. "Our opinions on social and political issues are no longer tolerated as valid and we are commonly viewed as the enemy. Subjective truth, self-love, unrestricted perversion, the destruction of morality: these are the things that have ultimately brought us to a place of depression and madness.

The World is a Thorn follows previous studio albums Storm the Gates of Hell (2007), The Triptych (2005), Summer of Darkness (2004) and Demon Hunter (2002), as well as the live album and three disc CD / DVD set 45 Days, which have sold close to a combined half a million copies. It's an incredible feat for a band that has yet to venture from North America and has never toured regularly.

"Fading Away," the first video / single from Storm the Gates of Hell, has received over 1 million views on YouTube. That song, "Carry Me Down," "Undying," "One Thousand Apologies," "Not Ready to Die" and "Infected" -- to name a few -- have all been staples of Christian, college and speciality radio and featured continuously on MTV2's Headbangers Ball and Fuse. Ryan Clark was featured on the cover of Revolver in 2006 as part of their "Christian Metal" cover story and they are regularly a huge draw at festivals.

The "Hunters" in the "Blessed Resistance," as the band's most devoted fans are known, have championed the cause since day one and are making their voices heard throughout the underground.

Demon Hunter's level of commitment to the quality and presentation of their music is matched only by their attention of detail to their packaging and overall aesthetics. Ryan Clark's graphic design firm he co-owns with his brother Don (formerly of Demon Hunter), Invisible Creature, has racked up several Grammy nominations in the packaging category. The fans match that passion and dedication, proudly displaying the group's symbol on their social networking pages and tattooing it on their bodies.

Demon Hunter is an anomaly in today's heavy music scene, jettisoning fashionable trends and easily recognizable cliches in favor of traditional heavy metal power and melodic hooks. The World is a Thorn recalls the best of the genre's past while pushing the envelope forward at the same time.
