Toronto, ON/Manhattan, Ny based brutal death/hardcore group BRAND OF SACRIFICE have premiered a blistering new single entitled “Divinity” today via Slam Worldwide. The track is from the band’s forthcoming debut full length God Hand which will see a July 5th release on Unique Leader.
Formed in 2018 and having already released a masterful and immensely well received EP, The Interstice, the band has already established themselves as one of the most uniquely thrilling and compositionally adventurous extreme metal acts in the scene today. God Hand sees the band continuing to push their tremendous songwriting maturity and ability to command absolute sonic devastation to new heights.
The devastating 10 track album was recorded mixed and mastered by guitarist Michael Leo Valeri and features stunning artwork by Pedro “Lordigan” Sena (Ingested, Organectomy).
BRAND OF SACRIFICE commented on the effort and their musical progression, “God Hand is absolutely our most punishing and relentless material to date. We really honed in on expanding our sound, especially when it comes to vocal range and drum variance. That being said, there are many hooks and “chorus” sections when compared to our previous entry The Interstice. These are definitely much more structured songs overall. We think there’s something for everyone on this record… whether you’re a fan of Deathmetal/Hardcore or the Brutal/Slam side of the Metal genre, there’s something here for you.”
