NEWS: Ov Sulfur premier “Befouler”, Alex Terrible guests!
Crafted by the band alongside producer Morgoth Beatz (Winds of Plague, Scarlxrd), then mixed and mastered by maestro Josh Schroeder (Lorna Shore, Tallah), the new album “The Burden Ov Faith” from Ov Sulfur 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. Century Media have shared a fifth single from the record in “Befouler“, a beast soaked in Technical Death Metal that crumbles into a brutal breakdown featuring vocalist Alex Terrible from Russian Deathcore brutes Slaughter To Prevail. If you want to get your greasy paws on a copy, Century Media are making us wait until 24th March.
On the new single, vocalist Ricky Hoover comments: “Breaking away from our constant blasphemy, ‘Befouler’ focuses on real-life heretics who say one thing to your face but believe another. They use this false front as a pathetic defence to slowly plot your demise. This type of life became foreign to me in my years away from the music industry, but it seems the more you’re in the public eye, the more you face dissenters and weaklings. I’ve made so many great friends through the industry, but this one is a middle finger to those who are too cowardly to even spit in your face because they only open their mouth while hiding theirs”
Guitarist and vocalist Chase Wilson adds: “This is easily our most energetic song. The technical riffing keeps you banging your head so hard you just might get lightheaded while singing along to the anthemic chorus – shout out to Ricky! By the time you get to the end, you’ve basically given yourself short-term memory loss and forgotten that Alex Terrible comes in to just bludgeon you to death on the final breakdown. For the video, we went with a tale of revenge that ties our early single and EP artworks to The Burden Ov Faith. Rather than go with the typical animated video, we wanted it to be almost like a moving painting or storybook, complete with hyper-stylised art from the super talented Anastasia Solti. We had our friend Dylan Gould add some extra effects to really make it pulse with the music, and we’re very excited to have a unique visual for one of our collective favourite songs from the album!”
