Demon Hunter Launch Remix Contest, Offer Sneak Peek at Video
It’s a busy time in the Demon Hunter camp as the band prepares to release its sixth album ‘True Defiance’ on April 10 through longtime label Solid State. In addition to announcing a ‘Someone to Hate’ remix contest for fans, the band shared stills from the ‘My Destiny’ video, which is slated to premiere online sometime in the next week.
Aspiring remixers can rework ‘Someone to Hate’ and demonstrate their creativity, not to mention their love for the band, via the Indaba-sponsored contest. Any of the 650,000 members of the site’s musician community can download the vocal or individual instrument tracks from the song to create their own custom remix. The band will personally judge the submissions and choose the winner.
Solid State will officially release the winning track and the top remixer will also receive $1,000 in prize money. Not to shabby at all, huh?
Demon Hunter frontman Ryan Clark is incredibly psyched about the contest, being a huge fan of electronic music. “I can’t wait to hear the crazy and unique ideas people will inject into this song,” Clark said in a press release. “I think remixing a song this fast and heavy might be a challenge, but I think it will yield really interesting results because of that. Go crazy!”
If you aren’t planning to partake in the remix contest, you can still enjoy some more Demon Hunter in your life by paging through the still images from the video shoot which have been posted on the band’s Facebook page. We particularly like the one of Clark with the full and thoroughly Viking-like beard, which is pictured above.
