We Came As Romans released their new album Darkbloom in 2021, and now they're back with an even heavier version of the title track featuring deathcore heavyweights Brand of Sacrifice. If you're in the mood to have your head torn clean off and body thrown into a meatgrinder, then you're really going to dig this. Plus it helps that the visuals the collaboration cooked up for the song are pretty cool!
"We've been fans of Brand of Sacrifice for a minute – and when we had the idea to do a reimagined version of 'Darkbloom,' they were the first people to come to mind," said We Came As Romans of the collaboration. "A lot of bands have done incredible re-releases or reimagined versions of songs, and those versions are usually stripped down and showcase a softer side. We wanted to do the exact opposite – to team up with some powerhouses in the deathcore scene, and release something heavy, fast paced and aggressive. It's been a blast working with the Brand of Sacrifice guys, we can't wait to see what the future holds for them."
"When We Came As Romans approached us to rewrite this track with them, we were excited to be able to work with a band that has done so much for metalcore as a whole," added Brand of Sacrifice. "This reimagined version of 'Darkbloom' is full of aggression and energy, and combines all of the elements that make both of our bands special with some unexpected surprises along the way. I'm super stoked that we have the opportunity to innovate and bridge the gap between two very different sub genres, and do something insane that really hasn't been done all that often in metal."
"Darkbloom" was created in collaboration with producer Drew Fulk (Motionless In White, Fit For A King, Crown The Empire). Check it out here.
