Aggression has no limits. It is the precision workings of extremity. Such is the nature of the band Demon Hunter. Their self-titled opus, out on Solid State Records, is a slithering journey through the abysmally beautiful aspects of modern Death Metal.
Twisted melodic elements, such as cellos and samples, are incorporated into the mix. Clean and growled vocals wind through precise guitar blasts and pummeling rhythm sections. The grooves are deep and ferocious–burning and tearing simultaneously.
Tracks of intense noteworthiness include “As We Wept,” the shredding “I Have Seen Where It Grows” (my favorite one), “Through The Black,” and “Screams Of The Undead.” Demon Hunter razes the sky.
Overall, this is a phenomenal debut. Demon Hunter is another great new band to watch for. Stay savage. Farewell.

Keep the faith, and the AGGRESSION. War.
