This is my second review on this cd. Im writing this second review because my first one is, like the guy put it in the review before me, is totally messed up. I wrote that review a few years back when I was a little 13 year old kid who didnt really know what I was talking about haha. While I still dont think this cd is that great, it definitely didnt deserve the review I gave it years ago. I can understand why some people have problems with the lyrics, they are a bit dark at times, but then at other times I really like them. Demon Hunter is ok but for me I prefer bands like Haste The Day, The Devil Wears Prada, Underoath, and We Came As Romans. Check them out!
Some of the reviews on here are totally messed up. you need to really study the words to the songs in order to get what they mean. this cd is great. the only one i dont really like is the very last one. but other than that this is a great!!!!!!!!!!
Demon Hunter said that The Triptych was their "back to basics" record, and it sure was. Trading a lot of the uber-heavy sound for more of a straight forward agressive metal sound, DH rocks your face off with catchy metal. Lyrics are also more recognizably spiritual on this release.As far as stand out songs go... almost the whole record is catchy enough to make it a favorite.
I havent heard this whole album, but What I've heard is good It is the best Metal out there as of now. But there is one thing that gets me ticked off more then anything. its how people judge bands like demon hunter for there appearance or album covers and stuff. it says in the Bible... Do not Try to remove the speck from your Brotheres eye but instead Remove the plank in your own eye first before you worry about such things. God created Demon Hunter for a reason! To minister to the lost youth that live in sin. look at statistics. Most of the murders and suicides in America have come from the youth!! And thats Bad!!! And Demon Hunter is just the band to minister to the lost youth. Think about it. Its true. Thank you for hearing me out.
I just bought this CD, and it is nothing short of phenomenal. The lyrics (unlike others have said) are extremely uplifting. One thing Dave did in his review was take those lyrics out if context. The song, Not I, is about sin trying to get he lead singer back, saying to bow down, but he says Not I.I strongly recommend this album.
