This is the Limited edition that comes in a collectors box, and includes two extra songs, DVD, a bandanna, ring, art prints, mini poster, and signed certificate from the band. Thats why the price is higher I have been a Demon Hunter fan for a long time, and their last album Extremist was by far the best they have done in a long time. Outlive is a different album for them, its not the blistering, growling play to their core audience that Extremist is, rather this has a bit experimentation to it. The vocals are more melodic and tend to only get heavy (on most tracks) when really pushing home a point/idea. Instrumentation is also different as they work in more ambient sounds and piano/orchestrated pieces to give the songs more then just the usual metal edge. Its not something that all metal heads will appreciate but there are a few brutal tracks here as well (One Less, Jesus Wept and Cold Blood, being noteworthy) theres definitely something deeper here and tracks like Slight the Odds and The End are a great example of the mixture here. Overall it took a few more listens to really appreciate everything they did, but if you like your metal with a bit more melody you'll find something to enjoy here along with their usual brutality.
I would recommend this to a friend
