Having been a fan of Demon Hunter since their self-titled album, I have to say that this is easily the best of their three albums. Basically, it combines what I view as the best aspects of the first two albums. The first album had a very focused sound, with ten tracks (nine songs, one intermission-type affair), but had less-than-perfect production. Summer of Darkness sounded much cleaner; however, it felt unfocused, as the guest singers and the number of songs (13) distorted the clarity of the album's message. Both were definitely great albums, however, with SoD being an overall improvement over the self-title.

On to The Triptych. I'll go with a song-by-song analysis at first, then sum things up at the end.

The Flame That Guides Us Home: It's an introduction to Not I, so there isn't much to say. It does provide a good introduction to the album, however. (n/a)

Not I: Heavy and fast. Awesome drumwork combined with awesome vocals makes for an awesome song. Very well executed, and starts the album off extremely strong. (10/10)

Undying: The first single off of the new album. It's pretty solid, with good metal vocals leading into a more melodic chorus. The only problem is that said sequence is becoming somewhat formulaic for Demon Hunter; it isn't a problem yet, though. (8/10)

Relentless Intolerance: Another solid song. Still follows the aforementioned formula, which is slightly upsetting. What redeems this song (and much of the album) from monotony is the more refined guitar and drumwork. Still, this song is merely solid, nothing exceptional. (7/10)

Deteriorate: The first of three(!) ballads on the album.

Well, this CD has been in and out of my stereo several times throughout the past few months. This is the only Demon Hunter album I own, and I'll probably keep it that way. That's not because I didn't like this record; in fact, I really dig this record. It's just that from what I've heard and read about the band's two previous records doesn't get me all that excited. I'm a big fan of melody in my metal. The Triptych has loads of melody, which seems to be lacking in the beginning of Demon Hunter's catalogue. I really can't stand to listen to bands like Cannibal Corpse and Deicide because, even though these guys are tight and groovy, they seem to stick to the upper frets of the guitars (except for the solos of course). I appreciate the talent, but I don't get my rocks off on that style. Melodic metal can groove just as nice, yet I feel like the music is actually going somewhere. The Triptych has a great blend of groove and melody in my opinion. There are nice thrashy breakdowns in the vein of hardcore, and yet the riffs take more than single-finger power chords to pull off. Also, I really dig Ryan Clark's vocal delivery. His growls are good. He doesn't whine, and he's semi-discernable. His singing voice is surprisingly good. He actually has some range. I like it. The guitars are tight, and the lead work is admirable (at least they put solos in the songs.). The bass and drums seem to do a good job. Nothing seems out of place. Some may think that the quality is too clean, but I can't stand it when the mixing puts a certain instrument in the back/foreground. I don't understand when a reviewer thinks that the recording doesn't sound "raw" enough. If the band wanted to have a crappy sound quality, they'd release a bootleg of one of their shows.Read more ›

Demon Hunter are one of those bands that sticks with you. The kind that stands the test of time. One you can listen to 10 years from now (assuming that they may be done by then) and totally wish you could see them live just ONE MORE TIME.

DH are back with their third album "The Triptych". This time around, they basically stick to what made them great, a good dose of attitude and heaviness, but add a little more old-school speed and technical prowess.

This is a fantastic CD that will have you both singing along and wanting to smash something at the same time, much like their previous self-titled debut and their follow-up "Summer of Darkness".

Demon Hunter have never been apologetic about what they believe in, and this is no different. Far from a CCM-styled Christian band however, these guys aren't afraid to give a nod to their secular predecessors in the form of a cover tune "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck" originally recorded by Prong back in the early 90's. And a very good rendition of it is performed here on "The Triptych".

Standouts so far for me are "The Light That Guides Us Home", "The Science of Lies", "Deteriorate" & "Fire To My Soul", but there are no filler songs that I can make out. Nope, pure Demon Hunter brutality mixed with the catchy and very singable parts as well.

That's another thing, let me just say that Ryan Clark has a good singing voice. He never tries to overdo it either, which is good because too many people do that and it's old.

I had the chance to meet these guys at Cornerstone Festival in 2003 and it was a great experience. God Bless you guys and may this album take you to new heights!

If you like Fear Factory, Machine Head, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, or Slipknot, do yourself a favor and buy a Demon Hunter CD. They do not disappoint!
