NEWS: Ov Sulfur detail “The Burden Ov Faith”!

Blackened deathcore outfit Ov Sulfur have shared details of their debut full-length album, “The Burden Ov Faith“, due 24th March via Century Media. Crafted by the band alongside producer Morgoth Beatz (Winds of Plague, Scarlxrd), then mixed and 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 and current Once Human guitarist Logan Mader stepping in to capture the guitars and bass. Add to the mix a collection of guests second to none with Alex Terrible of Slaughter To Prevail, Taylor Barber of Left To Suffer, Kyle Medina of Bodysnatcher all adding what you’d expect from the genre. However that isn’t all as Howard Jones of Light The Torch, ex-Killswitch Engage offers something entirely different as does Lindsay Schoolcraft, formerly of Cradle of Filth. In celebration of the announcement, they’ve released an emotionally-charged music video for new single ‘Earthen‘.

On the subject matter of the new single, vocalist Ricky Hoover comments: “‘Earthen’ is about my nephew who died from cancer at 16. After failed bone-marrow transplants, he decided to stop and let it take its course. It’s about witnessing that and being there, holding him when he died. That song is very emotional for me… I was actually crying in the studio tracking vocals. We needed the video to capture the sheer tragedy of that situation to really underscore how unfair and unjust it is for any ‘god’ to put a child through something as awful as cancer

Guitarist and vocalist Chase Wilson adds: “The guitar lead from this song is the first thing I wrote that ended up on the album, well over a year ago. The song came together quickly after that and has stayed very similar since. As such, it’ll appeal to fans of the Oblivion EP, as well as the newer stuff we’ve been putting out, with the most obvious growth being Ricky’s emotional singing and Leviathvn’s super tasteful drumming. We’re all really proud of this one
