A Music/HeavyMetal band formed in the early 2000s, Demon Hunter is one of the most popular Christian heavy metal bands outside of the genre's own community; along with bands such as Underoath, Thousand Foot Krutch, Red, Pillar, and Skillet, they are among the most known Christian metal bands in recent history. The band has their own nickname for their fan base, similar to how Slipknot calls their fans 'maggots', calling their fans members of 'The Blessed Resistance', as seen on their website.

* VocalEvolution: Ryan's clean vocals have remained pretty much unchanged since the band's beginnings, but his harsh vocals have significantly changed since their debut album, not just the way he sounds, but also the style. Compare his growls on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSAmIYZ2Wjk Screams of the Undead]] to his growls on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnHn_nY0rr Artificial Light]], from their first and latest albums, respectively, and tell me you can tell it's the same guy.

* AuthorVocabularyCalendar: They have used the phrase 'reap what you've sown' more than a couple times.
* BaldOfAwesome: Ryan.
* CarefulWithThatAxe: They do this a lot, but especially on the title track on 'Storm the Gates of Hell'. It begins with quiet static, then the drums start to come in and Ryan lets out a loud growl powerful enough to wake up a sleeping baby. And throughout the song, he sounds like he's trying to explode his throat.
* ChewingTheScenery: "LIFE! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRR!"



* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Usually an 8, sometimes crossing into the range of 9. Their softer songs, however, drop down to around a 6.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Usually an 8, sometimes crossing into the range of 9. CoverVersion: The band covered Prong's 'Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck'.
* DarkIsNotEvil:
Their music is perceived as being very dark, despite the fact that they are a Christian band and are in reality anything ''but''.
* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Storm the Gates of Hell'' is considered their darkest album.
* EpicRocking: 'The Gauntlet' clocks in at just under 7 minutes.
* FadingIntoTheNextSong: In ''True Defiance'', 'Means to and End' → 'We Don't Care'. This is an interesting example in that 'Means to an End' was made with this intention, and was going to segue into whichever song fit the key it was in. 'We Don't Care' was the only song they had in the key of E.
* FakeOutFadeOut: 'Deteriorate' sounds like it's finished around 3/4 of the way through, then the riff comes back out of nowhere and the chorus plays a few times.
* GrooveMetal: ''The Triptych'' onward.

* BaldOfAwesome: Ryan.NotChristianRock: Subverted. Most fans don't know they're Christian (see ChristianRock above) until they look it up.
* RapMetal: In some songs, Ryan screams in an almost hip-hop rhythm, most notably on 'The Science of Lies', 'I Have Seen Where It Grows', 'Beauty Through the Eyes of a Predator', 'LifeWar', the second verse of 'Through the Black', 'Not Ready to Die', 'Beheaded', and 'Tie This Around Your Neck'.
* RatedMForManly: Oh, yes. Quite possibly the only Christian band that qualifies.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: 'Fading Away' sounds like something Music/AvengedSevenfold would sing.
** ''True Defiance'' features 'Means to an End', an acoustic instrumental song.
*** 'What is Left' from the deluxe edition of the same album wouldn't sound out of place on a ThreeDaysGrace album.



* YoungerThanTheyLook: It may be because he's bald and his beard is at times very huge, but Ryan could have passed for a man in his early forties ever since he was barely out of college (the music video for 'Infected' was shot when he was just ''23 years old'').
* VocalTagTeam: Averted. Whenever a guest artist appears on a song by the band, the featured artist practically ''takes over the song''. For example, in 'Just Breathe', the aforementioned Christian Alvestam, who sung on it, sings literally everything except for the verses. They might as well have put it on Scar Symmetry's album, for Pete's sake!
