Demon Hunter’s New Album “Exile” To Feature Guest Spots From Soulfly, Judas Priest & Evergrey Members, September U.S. Tour Announced


With a Darren Craig (Slipknot, Rihanna) directed music video for their brand new single “Freedom Is Dead” having debuted online overnight, Christian alternative metal band Demon Hunter have now announced the details for their first-ever concept album “Exile“. That record was both produced and mixed by their own guitarist Jeremiah Scott and will meet a September 09th release through the band’s own Weapons MFG label.

An official press release shed some light on what you can expect from the concept, stating that it is “set in the aftermath of civilized society’s collapse, the 12 songs examine modern life through the lens of a nonconformist, contemplating a life untethered.”
