The Toronto tacticians of deathcore have delivered yet another undeniable example of their precision and prowess on the track, “Altered Eyes”.

The single is the latest in a succession of samples from the band’s forthcoming LP, ‘Lifeblood’ set to arrive on March 5th via Blood Blast Distribution. The final single from the album serves as an emphatic punctation in a promotional rollout that has done well to swell the momentum going into release week.

Blistering tracks like “Animal“, “Demon King,” and the title track in “Lifeblood” all offering a dynamic showing of the future of deathcore, complete with layered songwriting and crippling brutality throughout.

The band’s latest in “Altered Eyes” reiterates the band’s formula with a level of volatility on the track that really underscores how deserving Brand of Sacrifice is of the hype they have earned since the announcement of the record. In fact, the band has tallied some 2 million global streams of the songs from this record thus far.

They explain,

“We’re excited to present the last single before ‘Lifeblood’ drops March 5. “Altered Eyes” is something of a spiritual successor to “Charlotte,” a breakout success from our last album that took off way more than we anticipated. Funnily enough, both come in at track four on their respective album, but it’s more about the vibe; both tracks rock and groove as much as they riff and gut. Speaking of, much like most of ‘Lifeblood,’ this track is based on Berserk protagonist Guts, in this case the torment he felt watching his love interest lose her sanity amidst hellish abuse. “Altered Eyes” paints that hell with fiery Doom-scapes.

We initially weren’t even planning a video for this track—how could we even dream of measuring up to the epic that is “Animal”? Upon seeing Tony Simone’s work for his own band, Abiotic, we knew we had to do it. The CGI animation puts it in an entirely different realm than what we’ve done with Joey Durango. It’s similarly intense, but lives entirely in its own world and on its own two feet.”
