I think i've got one demon hunter song on my playlist. Never really listened to it but i'll make sure i do, just for you ;)
For me, it's difficult to process lyrics sometimes, especially with heavy/thrash metal. I can make out the drums well, but when it comes to lyrics it's a little harder. Drums are easiest for me because there is typically one sound for a snare, bass, toms, and cymbals. I know they can have a different texture, but in general drums and cymbals have the same basic tone. With vocals (especially with growling/screaming), it's harder. There are many different sounds with vocals. Heck, I sometimes have trouble figuring out what people are saying in conversation!
