08. I Will Fail You

Songs of Death and Resurrection
by Demon Hunter



 

These quiet words, they carry me away
Returning
They keep coming back
In idle thoughts and hollow cut-aways
Disarm me
No will to attack

Though the sorrow and fear they may depart you today

I will fail you
Of that I'm sure
I will remind you of the pain forevermore
And when my sins are just a memory
Faith restored
I will fail you
To the core

Lost in the shadow of an endless grace
Relentless
My reign is unbound
In this abandon I will devastate
Dismember
Till agony’s found

(Pre-chorus)

(Chorus)

I know they prey upon me
I feel them just beyond my door

(Chorus)




Behind the Song:
The original album version of “I Will Fail You” is one of our doomiest ballads. At the time, I found myself immersed in the bleak heaviness of bands like Omnium Gatherum, Swallow The Sun, and Katatonia. I’m naturally drawn to that place where heavy and sad collide. Reimagined, the song takes on a haunted vibe, replacing heavy chugs with hypnotic repetition of the lead guitar. On the album version of this recreated tune—along with five others—you’ll hear the amazing talents of longtime Demon Hunter collaborator, Chris Carmichael. Chris has arranged and performed the strings for many DH songs, such as “Sixteen,” “Driving Nails,” “I Am a Stone,” and “Slight the Odds.” I’ve never had to give Chris direction, and I’ve never asked him to change anything beyond his first attempt. He just gets it... and makes us sound like a million dollars every time he touches a track. —Ryan Clark
