Canadian deathcore squad Brand of Sacrifice have unleashed their new track “Enemy,” which features guest vocals from Underoath’s Spencer Chamberlain. To coincide with the tune drop, Brand of Sacrifice have issued a cinematic short film, which was devised and scored by the band. The clip serves as a prequel to the story line featured in the video for the band’s track “Animal” — stream the new video below.
Today’s announcement states, “The band have released the track on a limited edition 7″ vinyl that comes with an exclusive “Enemy” manga comic, conceptualized and written by the band. An exclusive variant was available via Revolver but it sold-out on pre-orders.”
Speaking on the new track, guitarist and producer, Micheal Leo Valeri states, “We wrote Enemy as a standalone release, expanding on some of the more melodic and metalcore moments on songs like ‘Animal,’ ‘Foe of the Inhuman’ and ‘Vengeance.’ The possibility of getting Spencer Chamberlain (Underoath) on guest vocals was electrifying. We were already excited about the song, but his ability to elicit emotion by leading into his screams with tormented talking brought it to the next level. He perfectly complemented our goal on the song. We’re also releasing two remixes of Lifeblood songs, like full-on electronic bangers that retain the musical motifs but present them as entirely different styles and moods. We’re beyond proud that our music can transcend boundaries like that.”
Frontman Kyle Anderson adds, “It’s no secret that we have drawn many of our lyrical themes—and even our name—from Berserk, the dark manga masterpiece by Kentaro Miura (RIP). As we move further away from Berserk as a direct reference point, we wanted to expand on the lore on our album art in the best possible format: manga. We’re very proud to expand the Brand of Sacrifice universe and hope our fans like it too, which would allow us to continue telling our own story.”
