Wednesday, May 25th, 2022 - Canadian deathcore wrecking crew, BRAND OF SACRIFICE, have dropped a reworking of their massive single, "Demon King", this time featuring the formidable vocal stylings of feat Ryo Kinoshita. Stream the track HERE and watch the visualizer HERE or by clicking the image below.

Speaking on the reworking of "Demon King", BRAND OF SACRIFICE frontman, Kyle Anderson adds "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.""

'Lifeblood' was hotly tipped as an album of the year contender last year. The album debuted on the Top 10 of the iTunes Rock chart in Ireland, Canada, USA, South Africa and Australia and debuted on the Top 10 of the iTunes All Genre chart in the US, Canada and Ireland. It also charted across 8 separate Billlboard charts. #1 Top New Artist Albums #6 Current Hard Music Albums #7 Current Independent Albums #10 Current Rock Albums #14 Billboard Heatseekers #23 Billboard Vinyl Albums #26 Billboard Top Current Album Sales #45 Billboard Top 100 Album Sale It also earned the band a JUNO nomination for the Metal/Hard Music Album Of The Year Award.

They followed the album release with the release of a new track, "Enemy" feat. Spencer Chamberlain of Underoath, back in August. The release came complete with a cinematic short film, a manga graphic novel and special edition vinyl that sold out almost immediately and a limited edition vinyl variant sold exclusively via Revolver that sold out on pre-orders. They also released a reworking of album title track, "Lifeblood" feat. Will Ramos of Lorna Shore. Most recently, the band worked with We Came As Romans on the ferocious reimagining of their song "Darkbloom (Reimagined)". 'Lifeblood' has clocked up 25 million streams since its release. With the official videos for singles "Demon King" "Lifeblood' "Animal" and "Altered Eyes" clocking up 1.95 million views. Find the album on your streaming platform of choice here.

About Brand Of Sacrifice

Since 2018, Toronto-based deathcore quintet BRAND OF SACRIFICE have been imprinting their mark on the heavy music scene. Dubbed ‘The Branded Ones,’ the group’s fans joined and marched with them as they tore across the globe in support of debut EP 'The Interstice' and LP statement 'God Hand' which debuted at #20 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums Chart.

Other highlights to a whirlwind cycle for 'God Hand' included a slot on The Summer Slaughter Tour with Carnifex, Cattle Decapitation, The Faceless and Lorna Shore, a world tour with tech vets Rings of Saturn, plus a tour with fellow upcoming deathcore titans Shadow of Intent.

BRAND OF SACRIFICE have spread their wings for sophomore LP 'Lifeblood'. With a production even more pummeling, exemplified by laser-sharp structures and a wide-gulf of dynamics, the album takes catchy to another level, with choruses comprising string orchestrations and synths, alongside bludgeoning breakdowns and plenty of guest appearances. Across their releases to date, BRAND OF SACRIFICE have hit 43 million streams and 10 million YouTube views.

The band draws its name from popular anime series Berserk by Kentaro Miura. 'Lifeblood' focuses on the series’ dark horse protagonist Guts, a lone wolf who faces demons both inside and out in a post-apocalyptic world.

Fans at any BRAND OF SACRIFICE show will be familiar with set-closer “Eclipse” and its ending chant of, “Welcome to the new age.” With 'Lifeblood', it’s evident the band have ushered in yet another, even fresher era from which there is no turning back.
