Demon Hunter completing album 'The World Is A Thorn'

AMERICA's metal hitmakers Demon Hunter are putting the finishing touches to album number five. 'The World Is A Thorn' was recorded with the band's longtime producer Aaron Sprinkle and is being mixed by Jason Suecof (All That Remains, Trivium). 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 (The Ascendicate). Said vocalist Ryan Clark, "The album title refers to the often harmful and destructive world that we live in. Most of the songs deal with the current state of the nation and the world as a whole. In particular, the lyrics take aim at the ideals of a Godless people and the depletion of our morals and values. In this age it has seemingly become more and more detestable to be a Christian. Our opinions on social and political issues are no longer tolerated as valid and we are commonly viewed as the enemy. Subjective truth, self-love, unrestricted perversion, the destruction of morality: these are the things that have ultimately brought us to a place of depression and madness. This album is the antithesis of the modern way of life." CR
