KSE does what they do pretty darn good. Dang good guitarist. But, haha, I still don't like them that much, because of the "excessive" singing. I've never listened to All that remains.

Not to mention one of the best vocalists in the genre. Their last release was basically perfect.

When you call anything with harsh vocals "screamo", it makes as much sense as calling anything with distorted guitar "heavy metal".

I turned this on in my cousins vehicle, and a solo started. "Who is this" he said. I'm like "DH". And hes like "It can't be, a solo?". "It must be the twilight zone". lol.

Anyway I've had it for a little more than a week now. I think its pretty good. About a 7. Some of the songs are starting to bore me now, but its still pretty good. I like "Follow the Wolves". Thats a great song, very melodic.

I love the demon horn BTW. I get asked about it alot. What do you tell people about it? I've been saying like its a horn from a demon I killed, being a demon hunter and all. And then people are like o you killing demons with your horn and all. And I'm thinking . . . Killing with the horn?

Okay here we go, just thought I would write a review on this cd. So let's get this thing going.

The first song I heard was Fading Away, which was the first single that Demon Hunter kept teasing us with by splitting into pieces on pure volume. When I heard the whole thing I got excited about this cd. That song was different from pretty much anything I heard by Demon Hunter. First with the Keyboard/Synth sounds and just the whole arrangement of the song. So eventually the cd came out and I got me a copy of it, and to say it simply it is my favorite Demon Hunter Cd. It contains my new favorite song by Demon Hunter (Follow the Wolves). It is evident that DH tried some new things in this cd. Plus you got your customary 1 or 2 songs that are pretty much nothing, but clean vocals (not a bad thing at all since Ryan's clean vocals are really good).

My only gripe with the cd is half the song seemed to follow the new arrangement exactly. Distorted Vocals on the verse then Clean Vocals on the Chorus and Bridge, with maybe a little sprinkle of harsh vocals. It isn't anything that makes this cd horrible, but it got old.

Positives: The use of Synths and piano, the clean vocals (huge improvement), lyrics, and rhythm

negatives: the use of the same arrangement on half the songs, they didn't sound the same musically, but it could have been a little bit more diverse.

favorite songs: Sixteen, Fading Away, Thorns, Follow the Wolves, No Reason to Exist

Final score: 8/10 great cd, a very few amount of things I would have changed, but still in my opinion their best cd.

Well, my deluxe edition arrived today.. I'm loving the demon horn. XD

I can't wait to be asked what it is.. "Oh that? It's a demon horn... Worn for it's power in repelling satanic spirits."
Thanks for the welcome, even though my response to you is quite delayed.

The demon horn is awesome; I got that deluxe edition too, and it makes me wicked happy.

this CD is awesome, they changed so much from their previous CD releases, I don't think that they could've done better......maybe well I guess there's always room for improvement, but not so much with these guys. my favorite songs were: "Sixteen", "Fading away", and "Carry me down", and maybe "Wrath of God"

Great CD. Thorns and Lead Us Home are awesome. But pretty much every song is good.

You know the choruses just get so boring and make me turn away from listening. . . But I am still so happy about the horn after all this time. . .

5/10. Coming from a huge Demon Hunter fan, I think it's pretty average. Follow The Wolves is the only great song IMO. Believe me, this album is what got me into Demon Hunter, and at first I drooled over it. Now that I've had a chance to thoroughly listen to the rest of their albums, it screams watered down. It's not terrible, it's just that their three previous albums are near perfection IMO, and this is far from perfection.

I always hear people rave about this album, but it just doesn't do it for me. I always listen to it again hoping something will jump out, and I always enjoy listening to it, but it just doesn't stand up to their older albums, which I honestly think are near perfection. Summer Of Darkness is one of my all time favorite albums that I own, and my library is anything but small.
