Ov Sulfur Are Back With More Blasphemy With “Death Ov Circumstance”

Posted by Corinne Westbrook in News on November 30, 2022

The growls of Ricky Hoover take aim at the tyranny of organized religion on the band’s latest banger.

Ov Sulfur is having a very busy 2023. They just wrapped their tour with Lorna Shore, Aborted, Ingested and Angelmaker and are now “blessing” us with a new single, “Death Ov Circumstance”. The blackened deathcore outfit do not shy away from their hatred of the church, as each single they release grows more visceral.

Vocalist Ricky Hoover comments: “This is another perspective on the poison that is religion. Rather than directly attack the current church, I looked back on history to the Salem Witch Trials. That was a time when Christianity persecuted others, while its believers either picked up their torches at worst or turned a blind eye at best – a pretty terrible best case scenario. This is a scenario that’s repeated itself throughout history during slaughters such as the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition.

Our video is more a fantasy world where the witches get their revenge. After one and her baby are burned alive, she and her friends come back to enact some sweet justice.”

Guitarist/vocalist Chase Wilson adds: “After the full-on brutal attack of ‘Stained in Rot,’ here’s a song with…ZERO BLAST BEATS! Don’t worry, though, the song kicks in HARD with a churning war march and only lets up for our best melodic hooks yet. In fact, hearing the unfinished version of this track is what really opened our eyes to how diverse Ricky’s vocals were – not just in screaming but also singing. Wait until you hear the bridge!”

Ov Sulfur is poised to be one of 2023’s hottest acts as their growth shows no signs of slowing down. It has only been two years since the band first formed, igniting a fervent response. “I had no idea that people would care,” Hoover admits. “Sure enough, I posted nothing more than a logo online and my phone died from all the notifications for two-and-a-half days in a row!”
