The Triptych Project

The Triptych Project

In art, music, and life, from the most crucial to the most mundane, three truly is a magic number. From the Holy Trinity to the commonly uttered phrase, “the third time is the charm.” From “Master of Puppets” to “Master of Reality.” Demon Hunter is proud to carry on that tradition with “The Triptych,” the explosive follow-up to “Summer of Darkness” and the most important heavy album of the fall. Middle Ages and Renaissance artists often used "triptychs" when constructing their alter pieces - a triptych being a painting or carving with three side-by-side parts, panels or canvasses, which together (and only together) form a greater whole. With this in mind Demon Hunter deliver their third album, advancing their story further.
~from Demon Hunter’s Biography

This is, hand down, the biggest AMV project I’ve plan and want to do. I wanted to do this for two reasons; 1) I want to challenge myself in the my hobby of making AMVs and (hope) improve my skills in it and learn to be a project leader at my college classes (just incase) and 2) To show the AMV viewers and other Hunters* out there how much I care about the coolest metal band ever, Demon Hunter. It’ll include all the songs from the band’s latest album, the Triptych, and unlike some other projects (like Chevelle Project and Tool Project) that include only small clips of songs, the songs in the Triptych Project will be in their entire length. That’s over fifty-one minutes of anime goodness and head-banging time but I can’t do it alone. I need 8-10 people to help me with making this and each song will be a chapter in the final video. This will be one of the longest anime music video ever after it is all done. Get ready, ‘cause the third war is coming to the org.
