OV SULFUR Recruits MENTAL CRUELTY's Vocalist For New Single "Hivemind"

Ahead of their upcoming tour.


Ov Sulfur is here to take on conventional religious narratives and herd mentality with their new single "Hivemind". Or at least they're gonna get you amped up to be pissed off about it all. The song features Mental Cruelty vocalist (and about-to-be Ov Sulfur tourmate) Lukas Nicolai for added brutal.

"'Hivemind' is Ov Sulfur's rallying cry against the herd mentality that has turned religion from hopeful to hateful for centuries—to the point where it's basically part of its ethos,” said Ov Sulfur guitarist Chase Wilson.

"The song takes a cue from its celebration of avoiding the typical, stylistically, by taking a left-hand path: embracing off-kilter swing in its dramatic chorus, contrasted with some of their most technical riffing. Lukas Nicolai of Mental Cruelty really elevated the brutality. It's an honor to have our Century Media labelmates and fellow blackened deathcore leaders on a song with us ahead of our co-headlining tour across North America."

Nicolai added: : "I said it before and I'm going to say it again: joining Mental Cruelty has been an awesome journey so far. Furthermore, having two Century Media heavy hitters join forces on a co-headline tour in North America is the biggest highlight of this journey so far. I am so stoked to go on tour with the guys in Ov Sulfur, Ghost Bath and Extermination Dismemberment.

"And now to have the opportunity to feature on 'Hivemind' is a cherry on top. It was really fun to record this one! I can't wait to go berserk with Ricky live—though I might try to get up there for 'Stained in Rot' haha."
