Demon Hunter

…My daughter attended a conference last November, hosted on the campus of Calvary Chapel Murrieta, CA. She was alarmed to find the bookstore was selling and promoting the band Demon Hunter. She wrote her concerns to the buyer and the reply was, these are “Dedicated Christians…they truly love the Lord…that they have a scripture in mind behind every song.” I then checked the Calvary Chapel Online Distribution Service and found they too were selling the xChristianHits2007 CD which features a Demon Hunter song that promotes this band as Christian. Thankfully, after I sent additional information and photos, they have removed this CD from their offerings, however they still continue to sell many extremely dark bands that are imitators of evil, despite the information I have sent.


This band enjoys widespread acceptance and popularity as a “Christian band.” They are heavily endorsed by pastors and youth leaders across this land. They play the “Christian” music festival circuit as well as mainstream. Their CD’s are sold in Christian bookstores.


Jesus said you will know them by their fruit. Demon Hunter is a very hardcore band, and tragically, very influential among young CCM followers. Our youth think they are following Christ, but are following the Prince of Darkness.

Demon Hunter’s logo is the Goat’s Head, (the horned goat, Satan, the Baphomet, deity of witches, the official sign of the church of Satan. (Photo above left is one of their album covers) (Photo right: Demon Hunter tattoo)


Baphomet was "the Templar symbol of Gnostic rites based on phallic worship and the power of directed will. The androgynous figure with a goat’s beard and cloven hooves is linked to the horned god of antiquity, the goat of Mendes." (Peter Tompkins, The Magic of Obelisks.) For more on this:

Every one of Demon Hunter’s album covers sports a picture of the Goat Head- the official trademark of the Church of Satan, the scapegoat. It’s a Satanist’s way of mocking Jesus as the "Lamb" who died for our sins.

If I type in the following logical url to find Demon Hunter’s website:, I will find one of the leading portals for the Occult. Black magic, clairvoyance, psychics, witches, mind control, esp, etc. Do you think a few kids might stumble across that site before finding out that Demon Hunter’s site ends in .net.? Please look at the following lyrics. How does this qualify as “Christian? How does this glorify Christ? How will this lead anyone closer to a Holy God? This is darkness not light.


Lyrics Album Demon Hunter 2002

10. The Gauntlet
I hold you in like a deep breath…Feel you like the last beautiful touch before a final rest./ I know i’ll see you forever./I want it painted black and red….It’s so beautiful to me, it’s everything i see./ It’s so beautiful to me, but it’s nothing that i need./And i can’t taste anything less…Every time i’m forced down./To be with yourself, take all the blood you want./ But not from here. ..It’s so beautiful to me, it is everything i see…/It’s so beautiful to me, but it’s nothing that i need. ..Not a hand, not a finger./This is my home…I’m dying here. .I hide in the corner./That look on your face, I’m accustomed to it.

Where is the fruit of the Spirit? Love, joy, peace…? Do you think this is pleasing and honoring to the God of the Bible who demands that His people walk in the Light? No! This is a product of the darkness.


4. My Throat Is An Open Grave

We lay face in pale solitude/ To save face, we pulled our walls in front of you./To the same place where we danced in front of you./ We fell from grace and watched the hope ‘fall from your face./This isn’t me i used to say. All the love was so gone./ It feels good to be alive. I’ve been dead for so long: and all the broken promises./ I can’t face. Afraid if someone notices, I lose my place./ Fractured, broken, paralyzed. I need some space, tear me open, analyze./ This isn’t me i used to say. All the love was so gone./ It feels good to be alive. I’ve been dead for so long./ Wake up screaming, I’m awake and dreaming, And i won’t stop breathing until my heart stops beating. This isn’t me, i used to say./ All the love was so gone, It feels good to be alive, I’ve been dead for so long . (Warning- this web site contains profanity.)
Notice in the above Demon Hunter admits: “MY throat is an open grave.”
What does God say?
Demon Hunter urges us in their song FOLLOW THE WOLVES: “Shed rejection –Learn to follow the wolves.”

The Word of God warns us against the wolves, it does not instruct us to learn to follow the wolves.

Act 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Act 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
Act 20:30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Act 20:31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

Not everyone who tosses out a claim to Christ or a scripture is a born again believer in whom the Holy Spirit dwells. The Lord warn us that many workers of iniquity will come in His name and call Him Lord, Lord. Too many today are like the buyer for the Calvary Chapel Bookstore who try to justify their love for darkness by saying, “Well, these guys really love the Lord. They have a scripture in mind behind every song.” Are you saying it’s okay to imitate Satan as long as I have a scripture in mind?

Is quoting scripture the test the Bible gives for discerning if one is a true follower of Christ?

Recall, Satan is well skilled at using scripture. He used scripture to deceive Eve and tempt her to disobey God in the garden. He used scripture to tempt Jesus in the wilderness.

Whether one has a scripture in mind as he participates alongside, promotes and imitates darkness is not proof that he loves Jesus. In fact, it proves just the opposite- that he is in disobedience to the clear commands of Scripture. “DO not imitate what is evil!”


Jesus says, “If you love me, you will obey me.”

Rom 12:9 Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.


…3 Jn :11 Do not imitate what is evil. DO NOT imitate what is evil. DO NOT. You cannot get much clearer than this! We are to imitate Christ- not the servants of Satan!

Do you still cling to your deception that you can adopt the logo of the Church of Satan, or imitate darkness, as long as you have a scripture in mind behind your obscure lyrics?


Not only are we approving those who practice things God hates, (Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them), we’re going a step further. We are presenting evil as good and good as evil. We’re putting forth darkness as light, and calling evil good. But God says “Woe to you.”

Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

John 8:12 “He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life.”

The Bible tells us to examine the fruit, to test the spirits. The Holy Spirit will not imitate or resemble darkness in any way. Do you ever wonder that the majority in the CCM field are an exact replica of the world, the flesh and the devil?


Eph 5:11 Have no fellowship with, Do not participate with, the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead, reprove, rebuke, admonish, them.
Deu 18:9-13 "When you come into the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations…For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD,
2Co 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
2Co 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
1Co 10:20 the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons.
1Co 10:21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons.
You cannot have it both ways.
Rather than being allied with darkness, Jesus stood in opposition to it.
Rather than partnering with darkness, Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil.

“For this purpose the son of God was manifest—that he might destroy the works of the devil.”

Beware! Jesus warns us that deception will characterize the last days. We are warned that Satan and his servants will disguise themselves as angels of light. Crazy thing is, Satan is not even bothering to dress himself in light for today’s church. Some gullibly believe that Jesus now is dressing as satan and screaming guttural indecipherable lyrics in order to bring people to the light. Such deception! It is impossible to use darkness to bring people to the light. God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all. No true servant of God would choose to identify with and promote darkness, let alone cover themselves with satanic logos and tattoes.


The evidence is undeniable: Satan is converting the church to himself! In the beginning God separated the light from the darkness. He made a clear distinction between the two. He has repeatedly told us to walk in the Light, and “if we say we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice truth.” 1 Jn 1:6. Those who continue to walk in darkness are deceived and are liars.

While the church has been asleep, the enemy has sown the field! Jesus warns that many deceivers have gone forth.
While the bulk of the professing church is deceived and on the broad road that leads to destruction, loving the world and the things thereof, lets you and I stand apart, be separate, touch no unclean thing. Let’s quit participating with and promoting darkness. We’re called to teach our children God’s Word and His ways- not entertain them with the things of darkness!

Let’s be willing to examine the thing in our hand and ask if it is an idol. Let us be willing to make our choices according to what is pleasing and honoring to the Lord. Let us be willing to deny ourselves and to lay down those things that are an abomination to Him.

Let us love God with all our hearts, minds and souls. Let us feed on God’s Word (HIS lyrics to us) rather than feeding on obscure words of darkness from bands that imitate and promote darkness. (Please see attached for lyrics from Demon Hunter. These are words of darkness, despair, hopelessness. They are cries from lost souls.)


Let us come into the light and walk in the Light as He is in the Light. Those who look to the Lord are radiant. Their faces and persons reflect His glory. Their hearts overflow with joy unspeakable and full of glory. Their lives are characterized by peace that passes understanding, a peace that the world cannot know.

1John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.


Christ came …Act 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

I beseech you with all urgency, if you are promoting this band and others of its kind, to heed the warning of Mat 18:6 But whoso shall offend (entrap, lead astray, trip up, stumble, entice to sin or apostasy) one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
