Demon Hunter has released reworked versions of ‘I Will Fail You’ and ‘Dead Flowers’ from its forthcoming album, “Songs Of Death And Resurrection”, a mostly acoustic and stripped-down effort, due March 5 via Solid State Records.
“Songs Of Death And Resurrection” features 11 new “Resurrected” versions of classic Demon Hunter songs from across the band’s ten studio albums, including fan favorites such as ‘I Am A Stone‘, ‘I Will Fail You‘, ‘Carry Me Down’ and ‘The Heart Of A Graveyard‘, plus a brand new composition, ‘Praise The Void‘. Marking an entirely new approach for Demon Hunter, “Songs Of Death And Resurrection” finds the band using lush string arrangements, haunting piano, and layered vocal harmonies.
Ryan Clark (vocals) had this to say about ‘I Will Fail You (Resurrected)‘: “The original album version of ‘I Will Fail You’ is one of our doomiest ballads. At the time, I found myself immersed in the bleak heaviness of bands like Omnium Gatherum, Swallow The Sun and Katatonia. I’m naturally drawn to that place where heavy and sad collide.
