Album Info: Extremist is the seventh studio album by American metalcore band Demon Hunter. The album was released on March 18, 2014 through Solid State Records. Extremist sold nearly 18,000 copies its first week and debuted at no. 16 on the Billboard 200.
Vocalist Ryan Clark released a five-part video series talking about the album and the album's three singles. Part 1 talks about "Artificial Light" and how his lyrics are used as "ammunition", as well as how "lyrics in heavy metal tend to be a little ignorant". Part 2 is about "The Last One Alive" and how to be steadfast in a world going the opposite direction, describing it as apocalyptic. Part 3 is about "I Will Fail You" and how to be realistic with the expectations you put on another person. Part 4 talks about the album overall and how the band has progressed their sound from album to album and this particular album's "middle-ground sound" with its mellow material. The fifth and final part talks about how the band picked the songs that appeared on the album, mainly "Hell Don't Need Me" and "Gasoline".
The deluxe edition of the album also includes two bonus tracks, "Waste Me" and "Helpless Hope", an 11-minute DVD video montage of the making of the album, and a 7" vinyl record containing acoustic versions of "I Will Fail You" and "Hell Don't Need Me".
On October 30, 2015, Demon Hunter released a digital deluxe edition of Extremist via Solid State records. It includes two remixes of "The Last One Alive" in addition to the tracks from the standard and deluxe editions.

Reviews For "Extremist"

How can they possibly get any better?

By tombie on 10/8/2015

Demon Hunter just seem to get better with each release. This album is heavy and full of passion. They have grown to be one of my favorite bands. My favorite song is "What I'm Not", I probably request it once a day at least. Great album! Tommy Likey.
