A to Z Challenge: E is for Extremist

If I'm gonna add another band to my top 3 Demon Hunter claims a position without question.  One of my first Metal bands, they are what broke me from Weird Al and Classical Music.  Yeah, I hadn't branched too far back in the day.

I own each of their albums, and I helped Kickstart an album that the singer is releasing sometime within the next few weeks, so I could say that I'm a reasonably big fan.

Extremist is DH's newest album so far, and I can happily say that it's continued to keep a solid quality.  The World Is A Thorn and True Defiance were a little iffy, but they did grow on my after a little while, so I can be happy.

Let's get into my favorite tracks now, eh?

Artificial Light
What I'm Not
Cross To Bear
The Heart Of A Graveyard

Even if you ignore this album, just listen to What I'm Not and The Heart Of A Graveyard.  You'll like the last on at the very least.


  1. I love Kickstarter just for that reason--it helps you connect and be a part of something you're passionate about.

    1. I search Kickstarter for things every couple weeks, but it can be really hard to find good ones. Stuff like this on that I get linked to though makes things a whole lot easier.

  2. I've got to admit, Demon Hunter is one of the better metal bands you've introduced me to.

    1. I'll have to try harder then... Have I introduced you to our lord and savior Slayer? Something something best metal band in the entirety of existence.

  3. I'm not much of a metal band fan so I'll take your word on the quality. Great that you've back them with Kickstarter.

    1. Actually I can provide you a list of their songs if you aren't into Metal. The Heart Of A Graveyard is actually a really good song with no screaming, loud guitars, or crazy drums. It's very melodic and acoustically driven.

      Just give this guys voice a try, he's got my favorite male singing voice.
