Guitarist Chase Wilson from blackened deathcore outfit OV SULFUR joins us on this week’s edition of The Loaded Radio Podcast

OV SULFUR have unleashed their debut full-length album, “The Burden Ov Faith“, via Century Media Records.

Wilson comments: “Having Howard (Jones – LIGHT THE TORCH, ex-KILLSWITCH ENGAGE) hop on the album version of ‘Wide Open‘ was the best thing that could have happened. We knew we wanted the song on the album, but we also knew it needed new life to live alongside the rest of the songs and not just be tossed on there. It’s crazy to us he wanted to work with us – less surprising is the fact he absolutely killed it. We just gave him the song and lyrics, and we let him do his thing. He really pushes the song to another level with both his screaming and singing. What a legend!”

Of the album, OV SULFUR vocalist Ricky Hoover comments: “I’m beyond proud of what we’ve created on ‘The Burden Ov Faith‘. Who would have thought I would be screaming on new music over a decade after leaving Suffokate – let alone singing?! I legitimately didn’t think I was ever coming back to music period when I left back in 2012, so to have an album out on one of the most respected labels in metal is mindblowing. Huge shout out to all my band mates and everyone who worked to create this with us – and everyone who takes time out of their life to listen!”

Crafted by the band alongside producer Morgoth Beatz (WINDS OF PLAGUE, SCARLXRD), then mixed/mastered by maestro Josh Schroeder (LORNA SHORE, TALLAH), “The Burden Ov Faith” sees the two split engineering of vocals and drums, respectively, with former MACHINE HEAD guitarist Logan Mader stepping in to capture the guitars and bass. The resulting album spans the stygian planets of deathcore, black metal, and metalcore, creating something as majestic as it is hook-laden. It also finds vocalist Ricky Hoover exploring the singing side of his voice, which he’d developed over years in choir as a child and only now added to his impressive growls and screams on a metal album.
