the band’s most recent album,Like the album before it, “Outlive” was produced and engineered by Demon Hunter guitarist Jeremiah Scott (Living Sacrifice, The Showdown) with additional production by the group’s longtime collaborator Aaron Sprinkle (Anberlin, New Found Glory). “Outlive” was mixed by Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed, Queensrÿche).

‘Cold Winter Sun’ is a perfect example of where we’re at today, maintaining an element of classic Demon Hunter, but not so much as to be resting on our laurels,” frontman Ryan Clark explains. “It’s always been my desire to pull a healthy amount of inspiration from our past, but to also incorporate enough forward progression to keep things interesting.”

Demon Hunter formed in Seattle in 2001. The lineup features Clark alongside cofounder Jonathan Dunn (bass), drummer Tim “Yogi” Watts (drums, since 2004), lead guitarist Patrick Judge (since 2008) and guitarist Scott (since 2011). Clark remains the primary songwriter, with increasing contributions from Judge.

Patrick‘s contributions to ‘Outlive’ unveil an exciting new path for the future of the band,” promises the frontman. “He wrote the music for ‘Cold Winter Sun’ and it’s absolutely one of my favorites from the record.”

Demon Hunter‘s dedicated supporters wear the group’s symbol and lyrics on their shirts, vests, backpacks, and in many cases, on their skin. Based in both Seattle and Nashville, the group embraces brazenly transcendent melodies, without apology, while maintaining a defiant heaviness reminiscent of the most timeless of metal.

A regular attraction at festivals, in theaters, and clubs, Demon Hunter has visited Europe, Australia, and South America, while touring North America several times. They were a headlining act on “Scream The Prayer”, co-headlined with the band RED, played as direct support to In Flames and introduced their fans to bands like August Burns Red and Haste The Day, who they took on tour with them early in their career. Put simply, Demon Hunter is an American metal institution.
