New Suicide Silence Song Pulled From “Devil May Cry 5” Promo Due To Past Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Eddie Hermida

Suicide Silence co-wrote a new song, titled “Subhuman,” with “Devil May Cry 5” (out March 8) composer Cody Matthew Johnson and it was supposed to be used as the battle theme for the game’s main character Dante. However, the video game trailer featuring the track and the music video were pulled after Capcom was made aware of the past sexual misconduct allegations against frontman Eddie Hermida., which he previously apologized for. Capcom told Kotaku the following:

“The music was recorded for the game before the incident came to light and we were unaware of the incident until now. However, as we are now aware of the current situation, Capcom has decided that moving forward, we will not further highlight the Dante battle theme for promotional purposes at this time. We are also currently evaluating what options are possible for the full game at this point, which is dependent on various factors such as resources.”
