DEMON HUNTER's new album, "The World Is A Thorn", is scheduled for release on March 9. The band's fifth CD follows the landmark documentary "45 Days", last year's "Live In Nashville" collection and a catalog of landmark releases that have made the band one of the most important in the genre.
"The World Is A Thorn" was produced by the band's longtime collaborator Aaron Sprinkle (ACCEPTANCE, ANBERLIN, THE ALMOST) and mixed by powerhouse producer Jason Suecof (ALL THAT REMAINS, TRIVIUM). It's a pairing emblematic of how skillfully DEMON HUNTER has always blended metallic might with melody.
"The World Is A Thorn" track listing:
01. Descending Upon Us
04. This Is The Line
05. Driving Nails
06. The World Is A Thorn
07. Tie This Around Your Neck
08. Just Breathe
09. Shallow Water
10. Feel As Though You Could
11. Blood In The Tears
The song "The World Is A Thorn" is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page.
The deluxe-edition box includes:
* CD with two exclusive bonus tracks
* DVD featuring the making of "The World Is A Thorn", and a live acoustic set
* 20-page booklet with exclusive artwork, photos, and handwritten lyrics
* Two fold-out posters featuring original artwork by metal visionary Dan Seagrave
* Three photo cards
* DEMON HUNTER handkerchief
* Set of four buttons
The album formally introduces guitarists Patrick Judge (who joined the band as a touring guitarist in 2008 and is now a full-time member) and Ryan Helm (of THE ASCENDICATE) with a new batch of songs written by co-founder and vocalist Ryan Clark. Yogi Watts returns with another jaw-dropping drum performance, backed up by longtime bass player Jonathan Dunn.
"The World Is A Thorn" follows previous studio albums "Storm The Gates Of Hell" (2007), "The Triptych" (2005), "Summer Of Darkness" (2004) and "Demon Hunter" (2002), as well as the live album and three-disc CD/DVD set "45 Days", which have sold close to a combined half a million copies. It's an incredible feat for a band that has yet to venture from North America and has never toured regularly.
