Eddie Hermida's vocals replaced on Suicide Silence track

Thursday, December 06, 2018 4:00 PM PT


You may recall that Suicide Silence was to have a track (co-written by composer Cody Matthew Johnson) called "Subhuman" appear on the Devil May Cry 5 video game, only to have the track removed when developer Capcom learned of the sexual misconduct allegations against vocalist Eddie Hermida.

The matter has apparently been resolved, however. According to Game Informer, the track will indeed be a part of DMC5, only Hermida's vocals have been re-recorded by former Volumes vocalist, Michael Barr. Game Informer offered this possible explanation for the decision:

"One of the reasons this might have been such a difficult replacement is the way DMC5 uses its battle music, layering it depending on how the style rankings in battles fluctuate. Replacing just the vocal track was likely a more feasible option for how the music was implemented into the game than making an entirely new track."

Meanwhile, Capcom's Yuri Araujo had this to say on the matter:

"While the song was written and recorded in-game well before such allegations, we'd still like to ensure, to the best of our abilities, that your experience with the game ultimately goes unmarred. As such, our development team, producers, recording and mixing teams have worked hard to find and implement a new vocal track by Michael Barr.

"It is worth noting that the hard work of the Suicide Silence band members, as well as song writers Cody Matthew Johnson and Mark Heylmun, remained intact, as they were not involved with the incidents. As you hear the new track in new promotional materials and in-game, please expect the instrumental parts to sound the same as before. In-game credits have also been updated to properly reflect the new recording."

Hermida did nothing wrong. Cucked game devs and even more cucked beta white knight fans kvetching over NOTHING. Grow a fcking penis and look at the history of rock and roll and thots. JESUS you pussies.

^^ terrible journalism majors that are hardcore nerds often take jobs writing for garbage gaming sites. Its one of the lowest tiers of paid writing and full of recent college grads, gaming journalism is honestly extremely leftist and off putting.

and this is coming from a liberal

There's a difference between a Leftist and a liberal, retard. Just like there's a difference between a Conservative and a member of trhe alt-right. Sorry, would "sister-fcker, Jesus-freak, nation of yes-men fckboys pretending to want less government" be more comfortable for you? Pointing out that "hypocrisy" of the liberal commenter probably expended your allotted amount of independent thought.

Michael Barr has the worst voice in the business. He watches youtube videos on how to pig squeal, sad

Mike Scorsese here of the notorious, infamous, legendary and seminal DMS squad. I can say that Eddie will be extorted Elgin James style whenever the cat is in Florida.
