OV SULFUR Summons Blackened Deathcore On Latest Single "Death Ov Circumstance"

With shockingly zero blasts.

Coming in hot after a sold-out tour with fellow blackened deathcore necromancers Lorna Shore, Nevada exports Ov Sulfur channel a more melodic take on the burgeoning style with a new song called "Death Ov Circumstance."

Call it "metalcore ov death" if you'd like, but damned if Ov Sulfur's anthemic chorus doesn't mesh swimmingly with the beefy breakdowns, electrifying leads and orchestral bombast. It's a bit less overwhelming in its brutality (as opposed to, say, Worm Shepherd), but Ov Sulfur replace the constant blast beats and ultra-heavy beatdowns with much more sing-along appeal.

Topped off with an atmospheric, theatrical music video jointly created by Ov Sulfur and MM Fabrications, Ov Sulfur solidifies their successful pursuit of a hookier shade of blackened 'core.

Vocalist Ricky Hoover comments: "This is another perspective on the poison that is religion. Rather than directly attack the current church, I looked back on history to the Salem Witch Trials. That was a time when Christianity persecuted others, while its believers either picked up their torches at worst or turned a blind eye at best – a pretty terrible best case scenario. This is a scenario that's repeated itself throughout history during slaughters such as the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition. Our video is more a fantasy world where the witches get their revenge. After one and her baby are burned alive, she and her friends come back to enact some sweet justice."

Guitarist and vocalist Chase Wilson adds: "After the full-on brutal attack of 'Stained in Rot,' here's a song with… ZERO BLAST BEATS! Don't worry, though, the song kicks in HARD with a churning war march and only lets up for our best melodic hooks yet. In fact, hearing the unfinished version of this track is what really opened our eyes to how diverse Ricky's vocals were – not just in screaming but also singing. Wait until you hear the bridge!"
