Demon Hunter will release two new albums, “War” and “Peace”, on March 1, 2019. The news comes just a couple of weeks after the group relaunched its fan community, “The Blessed Resistance.”
Demon Hunter (US) and Pantokrator (SWE) would tour Brazil by the end of this month, but unfortunately for all fans, this tour will be postponed to later this year. Pantokrator states:
Dear friends in Brazil we regret to inform that due to circumstances outside of our reach Demon Hunter has to postpone the tour together with us this month to a later date this year.
Down below you can read a statement from Demon Hunter and EV7 Live.
Lots of love! /Pantokrator
Last year on International Listen to Pantokrator Day (not a joke, a holiday celebrated by their fans on May 6), Pantokrator released a cover for ‘Awesome God.’ The song is widely known and sung among Christians, the original made famous by the penman Rich Mullins. The video is now available with Portuguese subtitles, check it out below.
Pantokrator and Demon Hunter recently announced a Brazilian 2018 tour which kicks off on Jan. 24th. in Itaim Bibi.
“We are extremely happy to finally come to Brazil and meet all of our wonderful supporters and fans! Brazil are you ready for some Swedish death metal?”

Before I get on with my review, I would like to mention that this band was a favourite of the late TMR Reviewer, Peter Willoughby, fondly remembered as the “WhiteMetalMan”, and in his honour I take it upon myself to hear this album through his ears and review it as he would have. So here it is.
Demon Hunter, an American Christian Metalcore band formed by the two Clark brothers, emerged the scene in 2000, and are out with their eighth studio album “Outlive” which was released by Solid State Records on March 31, 2017. Ryan and Don played together previously in Coalesce and Neurosis. Ryan had previously played guitar in hardcore band Focal Point, and released an album on Tooth & Nail/Solid State when he was still in his teens. Don left the band to pursue a career in Graphic design and family obligations.
As a headlining act, Demon Hunter helped introduce audiences to bands like August Burns Red. They’ve co-headlined with Red and toured as direct support for both In Flames and As I Lay Dying in the United States and parts of Canada. They’ve travelled to South America, Europe, and Australia, headlining major festivals and club shows alike.
Seattle-based metallers Demon Hunter has released a lyric video for ‘Jesus Wept” taken from the band’s new album, “Outlive“, which is released on March 31 through Solid State Records. The lyric video can be watched below.
“EUROPE! We are headlining the CVJM Loud and Proud Festival 2017 in Germany, 21st of October! This is the only European appearance we have scheduled this year. Hope to see as many of you there as possible!” (please see poster below).
