Ov Sulfur: presentano il nuovo singolo in collaborazione con Alex Terrible

Comunicato stampa:

Il 24 marzo gli OV SULFUR pubblicheranno il loro album di debutto “The Burden Ov Faith”, su Century Media Records. La blackened deathcore band americana presenta il nuovo singolo “Befouler”, con la partecipazione di Alex Terrible, frontman degli Slaughter To Prevail. Guarda il video diretto e animato da Anastasia Solti con effetti aggiuntivi curati da Dylan Gould:

Il commento del cantante Ricky Hoover:
“‘Befouler’ parla degli ‘eretici della vita reale’, quelli che dicono una cosa in faccia ma credono in altro. Usano questo comportamento come una patetica difesa per pianificare lentamente la tua morte. Questo tipo di vita mi è diventato estraneo negli anni lontano dall’industria musicale, ma sembra che più sei agli occhi del pubblico, più devi affrontare personaggi dissenzienti e deboli. Ho consolidato tante grandi amicizie grazie a questo mondo ma questo è un grande vaffanculo per coloro che sono troppo codardi e che aprono la bocca per nulla.”

Crafted by the band alongside producer Morgoth Beatz (Winds of Plague, Scarlxrd), then mixed/mastered by maestro Josh Schroeder (Lorna Shore, Tallah), The Burden Ov Faith sees the two split engineering of vocals and drums, respectively, with former Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader stepping in to capture the guitars and bass. The resulting album spans the stygian planets of deathcore, black metal, and metalcore, creating something as majestic as it is hook-laden. “It’s the ‘Oblivion’ EP (2021) on steroids,” says founding guitarist/vocalist Chase Wilson, joking, “I would almost call it ‘Arena Black Metal’ at points!”

The Burden Ov Faith kicks off with the slamming sulfuric firestorm of opener, “Stained In Rot,” which teases Ricky Hoover’s expanding vocal range via singing, in stark contrast to the gnarliest gutturals he’s conjured from his forked tongue. “Befouler” follows with technical death metal riffing and climaxes into an unexpectedly catchy chorus, before crumbling into a brutal breakdown featuring vocalist Alex Terrible. That Hoover keeps up with the likes of that masked madman, plus guests Taylor Barber (Left To Suffer) and Kyle Medina (Bodysnatcher) is impressive though not entirely surprising. That he holds his own on an album featuring Howard Jones (Light The Torch, ex-Killswitch Engage), however, is. Throughout and on the epic closing title track, his injection of melody is beautified by Lindsay Schoolcraft, formerly of Cradle of Filth.

“I wanted to put something out there that was as blasphemous and heavy as it was thought-provoking; I just had no idea how many people felt the same way,” comments Hoover. Since their formation in 2021, Ov Sulfur has burned as bright as a Norwegian church in the night, and with a reception warmer than hell and a set of principles to guide them along their left-hand path, The Burden Ov Faith promises to be only the beginning for the rising Las Vegas collective.
