It’s a well-worn cliche these days for a band to say their new album is “our heaviest but also our most melodic,” but Demon Hunter delivers in spades with this release. Songs like “Descending Upon Us,” “Lifewar” and the title track are by far the most aggressive of the band’s career, “This is the Line” and “Collapsing” are a couple of the fist-pumping but still hard-driving anthems and “Driving Nails” is one of two ballads on the album the likes of which their fans have come to both expect and cherish.

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” is a definitive mission statement from a band at a creative apex, firing on all cylinders with awe-inspiring intensity.

“The album title refers to the often harmful and destructive world that we live in,” explains Clark. “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.”
