Brand of Sacrifice release new song & accompanying short film “Enemy” feat. Spencer Chamberlain of Underoath

Band: Brand of Sacrifice
Song: “Enemy” feat. Spencer Chamberlain (Underoath)
Director: Joey Durango
Album: Enemy 7″
Release Date: December 17th, 2021
Label: Blood Blast Distribution

Speaking on the song, guitarist/producer Michael 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.”

Regarding the accompanying manga, 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.
