Ov Sulfur Premiere “Death Ov Circumstance” Music Video

Ov Sulfur, the band featuring ex-Suffokate vocalist Ricky Hoover, have premiered a new video for their new song “Death Ov Circumstance.“ You can check that out below:

Hoover commented:

“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 Chase Wilson added:

“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!”

Ov Sulfur Premiere “Stained In Rot” Music Video

Ov Sulfur, the band featuring former Suffokate frontman Ricky Hoover, have premiered a new video for their new song “Stained In Rot.” You can check that out below:

Hoover commented:

“‘Stained In Rot‘ is the heaviest song I’ve been a part of vocally and lyrically. It’s about bringing to light the fact that religion and government are constantly trying to become one and change the world into a theocracy. It’s about showing the horrors that have happened under that way of thinking and control. It’s about pulling out the truth and shoving it back in the faces of religionists while the ‘truth’ they be forced to believe crumbles around them.”

Guitarist Chase Wilson added:

“We knew we had to release this song on The Pain Remains Tour, as it has more of a slamming, brutal death metal riffing ala Aborted and Ingested, but it’s also got the blackened deathcore sound that fits in with Lorna Shore and Angelmaker. It’s crushingly heavy yet teases some of Ricky‘s expanded vocal chops via a little bit of singing. Yes, that’s Ricky on the chorus!”

Ov Sulfur Premiere “Wide Open” Music Video

Ov Sulfur, the band featuring ex-Suffokate vocalist Ricky Hoover, have premiered a new video for their new song “Wide Open.” The group commented:

“We’re excited to open your eyes (and ears) to the new chapter of Ov Sulfur. The song features some INSANE growls and shrieks from Ricky, which show just how far he’s come since his time in Suffokate. The music is similarly elevated, with the three (3!) breakdowns outdoing anything we’ve done before yet the chorus and dual solo bring some much-needed melody to the proceedings. Yes, at the risk of sounding like a cliché (I mean, we are a metal band who hates religion…), it’s our heaviest yet most melodic track yet. Speaking of hating religion, this song is about waking up, pulling the veil from over your eyes and leaving the false faith in the past.”

Ov Sulfur Sign With Century Media Records

Ov Sulfur, the band featuring ex-Suffokate vocalist Ricky Hoover, have signed a new deal with Century Media Records. The group will be releasing a new single, titled “Wide Open,” on June 8 and fans can pre-save it HERE.

The band commented:

“We’re beyond excited to join forces with Century Media, whose stellar roster speaks for itself. They’ve been at the forefront of every scene, regularly picking up the best each subgenre has to offer right before it really explodes. That they saw promise in us was truly affirming and invigorating, especially after only a year-and-a-bit as a band.”

“We’ve been teasing ‘Wide Open‘ since our first music video, where Ricky wore a custom-made shirt that quickly became his stage gear. We’re happy that this liminal song will serve as our first release on Century Media, closing the last chapter and ushering in a new one.”

Ov Sulfur (Ex-Suffokate) Premiere Music Video For New Song “Oblivion” Featuring As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis

Ov Sulfur, the band featuring ex-Suffokate vocalist Ricky Hoover, have premiered a new video for their new single “Oblivion.“ The song features As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis and it will serve as the title track of Ov Sulfur‘s debut EP. That effort will be available on August 6 and it can be pre-ordered HERE.

Hoover commented:

“Oblivion chronicles the undoing of our world when religious zealots militarize their faith. It was rad having my friend Tim on the track. We reconnected recently, when he realized we have had similar body transformations: from twigs to tree trunks haha. He went toe-to-toe with me in terms of brutality, which was completely at odds with the week we had hanging out. My kids call him Uncle Tim now!”

Here’s the track listing for the EP:

01. “Intro”
02. “Doomhead”
03. “Bathe In The Flame”
04. “Behind The Hand Of God”
05. “Lost”
06. “Oblivion”

Here’s the band’s current dates:

08/06 Las Vegas, NV – Backstage Bar & Billiards
08/07 Tucson, AZ – The Edge Bar
08/08 Phoenix, AZ – The Rebel Lounge

Ov Sulfur (Ex-Suffokate) Premiere New Song “Bathe In The Flame”

Ov Sulfur, the band featuring ex-Suffokate vocalist Ricky Hoover, have premiered a new song titled “Bathe In The Flame.“ You can check that out below:

Hoover commented:

“‘Bathing In The Flame‘ could be taken literally, like you’re burning in hell. But it’s more a metaphor for finding comfort in embracing your humanity, which is often broken and bad—if not downright evil. It’s in our nature to live in the grey.”

Guitarist Chase Wilson added:

“This song is definitely more blackened than ‘Behind The Hand Of God.’ We went from planning to be a tech death band to blackened deathcore, so we figured out our sound as we went. It’s a pretty huge leap between the two. Our other guitarist Cory Walker also took over the orchestral elements from here moving forward and crushed a killer solo, to boot.”

Ov Sulfur (Ex-Suffokate) Premiere “Behind The Hand Of God” Video

Ov Sulfur, the band featuring ex-Suffokate vocalist Ricky Hoover, have premiered a new song titled “Behind The Hand Of God.“ AngelMaker guitarist Johnny Ciardullo helped work on the orchestration for the track and an official video for it can be found below:
