04. Praise the Void

Songs of Death and Resurrection
by Demon Hunter


And here I thought we all agreed
Take this hand of hope
And leave the world to bleed
For a place too bright to see
Can we still behold
Forest for the trees
But here in the dark
I feel nothing
I see no one
No solace at all
We once heard the lasting call
But now we...
Praise the void
For this love, wasted love
Praise the void
We found nothing is enough
You tell me hope’s too bright to be
Tomorrow’s just a fabrication of our dreams
Here in the dark
I feel nothing
I see no one
Is it the end you want to see?
Here in the dark
We feel nothing
We see no one
Is it peace for only me?

Key of Ab minor / 94 BPM / Written by Ryan Clark / Players - Ryan Clark: Vocals / Joanna Ott: Piano, Vocals

Behind the Song:
This collection of songs wouldn’t be complete without a glimpse into the future. “Praise the Void” is a song I recorded the demo for at the very beginning of 2020. The demo resembles a typical Demon Hunter ballad with full band instrumentation, much like a heavy but melodic number from 2019’s Peace. I realize we’re putting the cart before the horse in stripping this song down before its actual release, but saving the original for later is a fun twist. We didn’t initially plan to simplify this song to just piano and vocal. Honestly, we didn’t know how any of these songs would shake out. Our only mission in the studio was to allow for some on-the-spot exploration in order to properly serve each song. We had played most of these tunes together less than a year prior during our An Evening with Demon Hunter shows. Still, if we were going to recommit older material to a new studio recording, we were going to take the time to ensure each song was given new life. This meant being open to several different variations for each song. As Joanna showed us what she’d worked up for this song—since this was the first time the full band would be playing with a pianist—we realized how incredible it sounded with piano alone. After all, this wasn’t a song we’d played together a hundred times, so it made sense not to belabor it if we didn’t need to... and I love this version of the song. —Ryan Clark
