Much better than their last release, and great use of other bands (Killswitch, etc.) I love Heartstrings Come Undone, and Not Ready To Die.

Outstanding. Nice blend of heavy too Hearstrings and I play dead.

I think it's a really good album. I love the song Beheaded with Mike Williams(is that spelled right?).

I havent heard them but their name and album covers kind of bug me
why would you hunt demons? personally I like letting God do that kind of
stuff. but I havent heard them- do their songs have uplifting messages?
I love heavy metal but whenever i see the covers on their cds it really
turns me off especially their new one :o
maybe you guys could help me understand them better

Their new ones?There are three different covers for the same cd.And any discussion on Demon Hunter and their messages might be better done in the Individual Artists forum.This forum is mainly for the review of a cd.Visit [URL=http://www.christianguitar.org/forums/showthread.php?t=113198]this[/URL] thread on Demon Hunter.

Awesome metal album. My favorite songs are..
"Not Ready To Die"
"Beheaded"
"Beauty Through The Eyes of a Predator"
"The Latest and the Last"
By the way, on which song does Howard Jones sing on this album?

Posted on 03-12-2005 by Symbiotic
check the FAQ at demonhunter.net....i can't remember right now...

Posted on 03-24-2005 by Unregisted
i love this band. real fun to listen to. Less than nothing is my favorite song. just something about the way it starts out. good stuff

Posted on 03-25-2005 by METALhed
Demon Hunter was better in my opinion
it was harder LOTS
and i like my metal and this isnt death metal try norma jean

Posted on 04-07-2005 by underOATHrcks
great cd. i love demon hunter. the thing best abbout them is that they are very deep with their lyrics. every song was great, the best being im not ready to die, beheaded, my heartstrings come undone, less that nothing, summer of darkness, i play dead, and the latest and last.

10/10

One of my top CDs of all time! I freaking love this CD! I've lost two copies and bought new ones for both times. I thought I had lost my newest one... but I found it in my basement underneath my Dad's synth.... he's a fan.

Posted on 05-15-2010 by Darkhyperchaos
It's rare that I ever give a CD a perfect 10, but I think Summer Of Darkness is pretty much perfect. Mostly when I see that there's 13 tracks, I instantly think there's some filler songs, but that sure isn't the case here. There's not a single song that I skip or that bores me. SOD has to be one of my all time favorite CDs, regardless of genre. I love all the songs, but my absolute favorites are

The Awakening (still one of my all time favorite songs out of my rather large music library)
I Play Dead
My Heartstrings Come undone
Beauty Through The Eyes Of A Predator

Posted on 05-21-2005 by DKelly
For anyone who's interested, Killswitch Engage's vocalist Howard Jones is a guest on "Our Faces Fall Apart", and the 36 Crazyfist's singer is on "Beauty Through The Eyes of a Predator".

Posted on 05-25-2005 by IAMADEMONHUNTER
demon hunter is great. hint my name. of all the 13 songs there isnt a song i will skip. there all that great.

Posted on 05-25-2005 by Symbiotic
:yep:...all great songs...

Posted on 06-24-2005 by DKelly
I give this an 8. It is very much worthy of a purchase.

Posted on 06-24-2005 by guitarguy
I gave it a 7. I like the songs but the first one was beter IMO.

Posted on 06-24-2005 by Inked in Blood

Posted on 06-24-2005 by audioswitch04

It isn't my favorite either, but it is awesome that they can do soft stuff too and not have it come out absolutely horrible(yeah, I like it to a certain extent.

Posted on 06-24-2007 by Rock 'n Christ
"Summer of Darkness"
"The Awakening"
"I Play Dead"
"My Hearstrings...."
"Not Ready To Die"
"The Latest and The Last"

are just some of my fav.'s for this album, all of the songs are great, though. :D

I agree with you, but i thought that my heartstrings come undone was pretty good. Props to you for the Norma Jean Lyrics.

Posted on 06-29-2005 by Symbiotic
I absolutely love My Heartstrings Come Undone...

I think My heartstrings come undone is one of their best songs! I love the music of Demon Hunter, But i prefer it when the vocals arent growling screaming, but theyre awesome. I give the whole CD a 9/10

Posted on 07-19-2005 by Symbiotic
unlike some bands that scream, they can accually sing, too...

On DH's website, on the F&Qs

I gave it 8, but in my changing phases of music genre preference, sometimes it would get a 10, sometimes it would get a 5. Right now I'm not into the powermetal sound much.

Posted on 07-21-2005 by Demon_Hunter
I gave it a 9. Its not perfect, but it definately rocks. The tracks that grabbed my when i first stuck it last december (and still do), are 1,2,4,6,7,12,13.

Posted on 08-28-2006 by living_for_Him
Not my favorite Demon Hunter (my favorite is The Tryptech) but is still amazing. I'd give it an 8.
