We Came As Romans spoke about the collaboration in a press release. “We’ve been fans of Brand Of Sacrifice for a minute,” they say.  “And when we had the idea to do a reimagined version of ‘Darkbloom,’ they were the first people to come to mind. A lot of bands have done incredible re-releases or reimagined versions of songs. Those versions are usually stripped down and showcase a softer side. We wanted to do the exact opposite — to team up with some powerhouses in the deathcore scene, and release something heavy, fast paced and aggressive. It’s been a blast working with the BOS guys. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.”

Brand Of Sacrifice also shared similar sentiments about the collaboration.

“When WCAR approached us to rewrite this track with them, we were excited to be able to work with a band that has done so much for metalcore as a whole,” they say. “This reimagined version of ‘Darkbloom’ is full of aggression and energy, and combines all of the elements that make both of our bands special with some unexpected surprises along the way. We’re super stoked that we have the opportunity to innovate and bridge the gap between two very different subgenres, and do something insane that really hasn’t been done all that often in metal.”
