Anime themed brutal deathcore act BRAND OF SACRIFICE have premiered a music video for their song “The Branded” today via Kerrang, who also discussed the group’s anime theme. The track is from the band’s devastating new album God Hand which was released on July 5th through Unique Leader.
Described as “essential listening for any deathcore fan” by Wonderbox Metal with Exclaim! adding “God Hand is absolutely top-tier and deserves every bit of attention it’s getting…” the album, whose theme revolves around the manga/anime “Berserk”, has launched BRAND OF SACRIFICE into a meteoric rise toward the top of the extreme metal world with their thrilling song structures, mind blowing technicality, and massively crushing sonic brutality.
The crushing 10 track album was recorded mixed and mastered by guitarist Michael Leo Valeri and features stunning artwork by Pedro “Lordigan” Sena (Ingested, Organectomy).
