Demon Hunter’s latest single serves a double purpose. Not only is it a prime example of the boys’ signature guitar-shredding, mosh-worthy metal that has won the hearts of many hardcore music fans; “My Destiny” also depicts a fantastic story of salvation, the ultimate need of mankind. As lead vocalist Ryan Clark screams out his lyrics, the tale unfolds, bluntly describing his sinful state as a “heart cast unto the beast” and “suffering infliction as a desecrated man.” As hopelessness closes in:
“But the fear [of God], the blood [of Jesus], the sweat and sound
They brought me here to wait for… [God’s] will to appear“
Not only is the choice to accept Jesus made, but to seek His will from that day on. A triumphant chorus follows:
“We were blinded by the sacred light
They carried us away
Like a razor through the dark that night
The awesome God we know has made it clear in his Word that He wants everyone to experience not only his love, but his life.
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
2 Peter 3:9 ~NIV~
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jer 29:11 ~NIV~
“My Destiny” is nothing short of a prime example of what Demon Hunter does best: Spreading God’s truth, and snapping some guitar strings in the process!
Demon Hunter’s new album, “True Defiance” releases tomorrow, April 10, 2012.
