True Defiance is due for release April 10, 2012 on Solid State Records and will be the band’s first release since 2010’s The World Is A Thorn. Frontman Ryan Clark had this to say about the new record:
“We’ve been extremely underwhelmed with metal for the last five years or so, and that’s been the fuel to create this record,” Clark explains. “With an extreme over-saturation of false, fleeting, trend-hopping noise in today’s metal scene, we had to make something we’ve been longing to hear. Something truly meaningful and artistic. Something our fans would love and something that will turn the heads of those who have ignored us for the past decade.”

Clark had this to say about the song “My Destiny”:
“My Destiny’ is definitely one of my favorite tracks on the new album, it shows just how much the band has progressed over the years. Like many traditional Demon Hunter tunes, it has a little bit of everything, and I think it flows really well through both heavy and melodic territories. My favorite parts are the guitar harmonies in the verses and how the chorus moves- the way the chords combine with the vocal melody is really interesting to me. I think fans are really going to dig this song.”
