In a thrilling display of blackened deathcore prowess, OV SULFUR is proud to announce the release of their latest single “Hivemind“, featuring Lukas Nikolai of MENTAL CRUELTY. The single showcases OV SULFUR‘s consistent stance against conventional religious narratives and herd mentality, a theme that aligns seamlessly with MENTAL CRUELTY‘s established defiance in their music.
On the new single, guitarist Chase Wilson comments:
“‘Hivemind‘ is OV SULFUR‘s rallying cry against the herd mentality that has turned religion from hopeful to hateful for centuries – to the point where it’s basically part of its ethos. The song takes a cue from its celebration of avoiding the typical, stylistically, by taking a left-hand path: embracing off-kilter swing in its dramatic chorus, contrasted with some of their most technical riffing. Lukas Nicolai of Mental Cruelty really elevated the brutality. It’s a honour to have our Century Media labelmates and fellow blackened deathcore leaders on a song with us ahead of our co-headlining tour across North America.”
Lukas Nicolai, MENTAL CRUELTY‘s vocalist, expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration:
“I said it before and I’m going to say it again: joining Mental Cruelty has been an awesome journey so far. And now to have the opportunity to feature on “Hivemind” is a cherry on top. It was really fun to record this one! I can’t wait to go berserk with Ricky live”
