Brand Of Sacrifice Share New Version Of “Demon King” Featuring Crystal Lake’s Ryo Kinoshita

Brand Of Sacrifice have joined forces with Crystal Lake’s Ryo Kinoshita for a new version of their song “Demon King.” Brand Of Sacrifice’s Kyle Anderson commented:

“We’re long-time fans of Ryo‘s work and I knew we had to team up together for this track. Ryo did a lot of new things on this tune he hasn’t done before on any of his other songs, and it’s incredibly heavy. His vocals have always been extremely aggressive and energetic, and I’m so excited for BOS fans to hear this new spin on ‘Demon King‘.”

We Came As Romans Stream Reimagined Version Of “Darkbloom” Featuring Brand Of Sacrifice

We Came As Romans have joined forces with Brand Of Sacrifice for a reimagined version of “Darkbloom.” You can stream that track below:

We Came As Romans commented:

“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. 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 BOS guys, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.”

Brand of Sacrifice added:

“When WCAR 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. 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.”

We Came As Romans Tease New Version Of “Darkbloom” Featuring Brand Of Sacrifice

We Came As Romans have shared a teaser for a new version of “Darkbloom” featuring Brand Of Sacrifice. The full track will be released next week.

Drummer Mike Caputo Exits Rings Of Saturn, Joins Brand Of Sacrifice

Mike Caputo has announced his departure from Rings Of Saturn. The drummer is leaving the band to join Brand Of Sacrifice.

Rings Of Saturn commented:

“Congratulations to @mikecaputodrums in joining our friends in @brandofsacrificemetal as a full-time member 🎉 Mike is an absolutely amazing drummer, huge thanks goes out to him for everything ❤

This means that Rings of Saturn is looking for a new drummer to play our European festivals currently booked in August 2022. We will be playing these with our original vocalist, and voice of Embryonic Anomaly, Peter Pawlak. We also have US tour plans beforehand in the summer.

We are preferably looking for a US based drummer, over 21, with touring experience, who can play the full Embryonic Anomaly album, and has all the requirements to travel abroad for the Euro fests.”

Caputo added:

“Hey everyone! I’d like to announce that after playing with Rings of Saturn since 2018 I’ve decided it’s time to step down from the band and shift my focus a bit. An opportunity came up for me that I would like to take but might consistently conflict with Rings‘ schedule. I have decided to take this opportunity that was presented to me. But as to not hinder Rings, who deserves someone who can focus on them full-time, I feel it’s best for me to step away.

I want to thank Lucas for bringing me on and trusting me to do justice to those insane drum parts live on the road, as well as the great opportunities this band has given me. Everyone I have played with during my time in Rings have been and still are good friends to me and I wish them the best. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the new instrumental material Lucas and Joel will be putting out soon!

As for where I’m going…some of you may know I’ve been doing some tours with Brand of Sacrifice recently, and they have graciously asked me to join them full-time. I’m super excited for everything that we have planned in the near future!

Although I didn’t have the opportunity to play on any Rings releases, I also want to thank all the Rings’ fans for being so accepting and supportive of me over the years with the band, and I hope to see you guys and gals at future shows!

Wishing Rings much luck on their new endeavors and looking forward to potentially sharing the bill with them on some shows in the future!

– Mike Caputo“

Brand Of Sacrifice Release New Version Of “Lifeblood” Featuring Lorna Shore’s Will Ramos

Brand Of Sacrifice have teamed up with Lorna Shore’s Will Ramos for a new version of their song “Lifeblood.“ The band commented:

“We’re super excited to put out the title track of our record with one of our favorite vocalists and good friends in the scene. We knew from the get-go that having Will do his thing on ‘Lifeblood‘ would turn out to be a total banger – his style definitely elevates his parts and adds a totally new and unique energy to the song. Given how close we are to Lorna Shore, and seeing their recent success off the back of their new EP, we knew this one was going to be special.”
