Love this song

Not really a huge metal fan, but this metal band made a very sad, yet, at the same time, uplifting, and soft song. It is amazing. - Alpha101

Here's a fun fact. The Navy SEAL who shot Bin Laden was wearing a Demon Hunter patch on his mission.

I was curious. Listening to the sample has hooked me on the band. WOW.

Of this exercise of trust." - Metal_Treasure

47 Let It All Go - Birdy and Rhodes

I heard this song and Shazamed it at my cousin's dance recital. It's a very deep song that's one of my personal favorites. It came out in 2015 and has 400K Shazams, but I've never heard in on the radio, none of my friends have heard it or of it, but I think it's simply breathtaking.
