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.

ERRA Cancel European/UK Tour With Dayseeker, Brand Of Sacrifice, & Hollow Front

ERRA have cancelled their European/UK tour with Dayseeker, Brand Of Sacrifice, and Hollow Front. The trek was unable to move forward due to issues related to the coronavirus pandemic.

ERRA commented:

“We held out as long as possible to keep this tour going, but unfortunately, we have to cancel our EU/UK headliner in February.

To provide a little context, stricter regulations were introduced in Germany and elsewhere in Europe back in November, which have only tightened through the holidays. From what we’ve come to understand from our team in Europe, promoters in some of the countries we’re hitting (while technically allowed to put on shows) are limited to heavily reduced capacities (some as low as 25%). Along with this revelation, there are also the major financial risks associated with any of us testing positive for Covid, the primary risk being forced to forfeit our transportation rental on the spot and not only unable to play, but also being stranded in another continent without a means of transporting all of our gear.

Please bear in mind that at the time of announcing this tour last summer, these setbacks we’re clarifying were not in place nor anticipated to be a factor by February. A lot of this is new info and we held out as long as possible because rest assured, we did not want to cancel this run. This was our first headliner in EU, tickets were selling great, and we were looking forward to finally having a full production set over there. We’re flying by the seat of our pants like everyone else, but we’re at least relieved that this is the first time we’ve had to cancel a tour since the pandemic began. It sucks major, and we hope we don’t have to do it again.

One last thing to note, this is not a “reschedule,” but a “cancellation”. We absolutely will be making a EU headliner happen again asap, but the reason why we chose not to phrase this as a reschedule is simply because we don’t want to hold people’s ticket money for months, a year, or worse.

Thank you for reading, we hope you understand, and above all else, stay safe out there. We’ll see you as soon as possible.”
