Suicide Silence Frontman Eddie Hermida’s Vocals Replaced In “Devil May Cry 5”

As previously reported, 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 apologized for. Now, the company has decided to completely remove Hermida’s vocals from the game and have Michael Barr (ex-Volumes) record them instead.

Capcom’s Yuri Araujo commented:

“Earlier this year, we debuted Dante’s new battle theme from Devil May Cry 5, “Subhuman”, performed by Cody Matthew Johnson feat. Suicide Silence. Shortly after the song’s reveal, we were made aware of unfortunate news and allegations about the track’s main vocalist Eddie Hermida.

While the song was written and recorded in-game well before such allegations, we’d still like to ensure, to the best of our abilities, that your experience with the game ultimately goes unmarred. As such, our development team, producers, recording and mixing teams have worked hard to find and implement a new vocal track by Michael Barr.

It is worth noting that the hard work of the Suicide Silence band members, as well as song writers Cody Matthew Johnson & Mark Heylmun, remained intact, as they were not involved with the incidents. As you hear the new track in new promotional materials and in-game, please expect the instrumental parts to sound the same as before. In-game credits have also been updated to properly reflect the new recording.

We hope you continue to look forward to Devil May Cry 5 when it launches on March 8, 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.”

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.”

Suicide Silence Guitarist Mark Heylmun Says He Is Taking A “Radical Sabbatical” From The Band

Suicide Silence’s Mark Heylmun has revealed that he is currently on a “radical sabbatical” from the band. The guitarist went on to say he needed “a break to spend time with [his] family and give [his] mind and body the attention it deserves.”

Here’s Heylmun’s full statement:

“So the cat is outta the bag… I’m not on tour with the band. I’ve been on radical sabbatical since about February of this year. I just feel I need a break to spend time with my family and give my mind and body the attention it deserves. I’ve abused myself for years and a member of my families health has got me aware of mortality and the length of time I may have on this earth. It landed me on the “it’s all or nothing” state of mind for the band… and right now the attention I am used to giving the band is not there.

I am not in a bad way of any sort or in a depressed state, I just wanna listen to my heart and do what feels right. It has never steered me wrong in the past. So with that I’m still writing music, planning new ventures, and I WILL be back to ripping for SS when the time is right. Super stoked @lonestardh is filling in for me on #Ragefest. Peace & Love y’all!! 😘✌🏼❤👽🔥”

During his absence, Darkest Hour’s Mike “Lonestar” Carrigan has been filling in. It’s also worth noting that the group have been performing a new song lately as well.
