Brand of Sacrifice - Enemy

Fans of Canadian deathcore Brand of Sacrifice have dropped an incredible new single entitled "Enemy" and it fails to disappoint! This one features Underoath's Spencer Chamberlain and has quickly become one of my favorites since its release on August 5th.  Accompanying the release is a cinematic short film, devised and scored by the band, that serves as a prequel to the epic story line featured in video for the band's previous track, "Animal".  Super cool cinematography if you ask me and definitely brings context to an already amazing song.  

Speaking on the new track, guitarist and producer, Micheal Leo Valeri shares - “We wrote Enemy as a standalone release, expanding on some of the more melodic and metalcore moments on songs like ‘Animal,’ ‘Foe of the Inhuman’ and ‘Vengeance.’ The possibility of getting Spencer Chamberlain (Underoath) on guest vocals was electrifying. We were already excited about the song, but his ability to elicit emotion by leading into his screams with tormented talking brought it to the next level. He perfectly complemented our goal on the song. We’re also releasing two remixes of Lifeblood songs, like full-on electronic bangers that retain the musical motifs but present them as entirely different styles and moods. We’re beyond proud that our music can transcend boundaries like that."

Speaking on the inspiration for the "Enemy" Manga comic, frontman, Kyle Anderson adds - "It’s no secret that we have drawn many of our lyrical themes—and even our name—from Berserk, the dark manga masterpiece by Kentaro Miura (RIP). As we move further away from Berserk as a direct reference point, we wanted to expand on the lore on our album art in the best possible format: manga. We’re very proud to expand the Brand of Sacrifice universe and hope our fans like it too, which would allow us to continue telling our own story.”

If you don't already follow this band, you definitely need to.  Their definitely on the rise and "Enemy" showcases their incredible metal chops.  They will be a force to be reckoned with in the not-so-distant future!
