Canadian deathcore wrecking crew, BRAND OF SACRIFICE, have dropped a reissue of the title track of their album-of-the-year- contender, 'Lifeblood' (released in March of this year) and this time they're not coming alone. Joining them on the reworking of the song is none other Lorna Shore's Will Ramos, bringing added brutality to an already pulverizing track. Stream the track HERE and watch the visualizer HERE.
Speaking on the reworking of "Lifeblood", BRAND OF SACRIFICE frontman, Kyle Anderson adds
"We're super excited to put out the title track of our record with one of our favorite vocalists and good friends in the scene. We knew from the get-go that having Will do his thing on Lifeblood would turn out to be a total banger - his style definitely elevates his parts and adds a totally new and unique energy to the song. Given how close we are to Lorna Shore, and seeing their recent success off the back of their new EP, we knew this one was going to be special."
Brand of Sacrifice released their sophomore album, 'Lifeblood' in March of this year. Hotly tipped as an album of the year contender, 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:

#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

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.
The album has clocked up 13.8 million streams since its release. With the official videos for singles "Demon King" "Lifeblood' "Animal" and "Altered Eyes" clocking up 1.5 million views.

What the press are saying about 'Lifeblood'
"'Lifeblood' Is the Kick in the Ass Deathcore Needs"
"The result is basically merciless technical death metal that has this epic, operatic frame to it."
- The Pit
"I can't recall the last time I heard an album this heavy yet this catchy and this memorable"
"If you're a fan of sub-basement guttural vocals, eternal blasting, and straight up devastating riffs, then you're going to love this." - Metal Injection
"The band are experts at using fluctuating dynamics for an extra heavy effect with electronic and orchestral elements to push deathcore forward into the ’20s."
- Metal Sucks
"What makes Brand of Sacrifice's sound so compelling is the insane control they have over the chaos that results from a truly wide range of influences."
"There’s a renewed scope and ambition to ‘Lifeblood’ that makes it a far more devastating and remarkable experience, ....making it apparent how thick and venomous their sound has become."
"Brand of Sacrifice take technical deathcore and infuse it with a cinematic flair and some contagiously catchy sections to make it open and accessible without compromising on crushing aggression and mind-melting intricacy."
- New Transcendence
"If you know of Brand of Sacrifice, you can rest assured that the end product of Lifeblood is full of moments that throw you for a loop, give you goosebumps, and only expand the Berserk knowledge exhibited by the band."
- The New Fury

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 28 million streams and 7 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.
