Demon Hunter - Half As Dead

Demon Hunter, metalcore act, has released yet another single from their upcoming album, Outlive, called “Half As Dead”. The band started in 2000 as a project of Ryan and Don Clark’s (ex-Training for Utopia). Over the years, the lineup has solidified as Ryan (Vocals), Jon Dunn (Bass), Patrick Judge (Guitar), Jeremiah Scott (Guitar), and Timothy “Yogi” Watts (Drums). The album is due out on March 31. The new track is called “Half As Dead”. Like all the songs I’ve heard from the new album, it’s heavy, but melodic. I have not heard a song yet where there is any of the signature Demon Hunter screams. I didn’t pre-order the album, so I haven’t heard all the tracks, so maybe there is one or two, but I haven’t heard it. Anyways, I hope you enjoy.
