This Divided World is proud to premiere their new single, “Truth vs. Circumstance,” a heavy-hitter featuring Greg Sutton. This Divided World is the artistic name for one-man wrecking crew Micah Brill who recorded the music for the song, with the drums being co-written by Brill and Doug Court of Sirens and Sailors. Greg Sutton joins him on the track as the lyricist and vocal performer; Sutton previously collaborated with the band on “The Book of Life.” The song is currently free to download for a week. (You can grab it below.)

We spoke with Brill about the track and about his collaboration with Sutton:

“This song was over 3 years in the making and is dedicated to every fan that has supported This Divided World from the beginning. … I met Greg at a local metal show at the Dubland Underground venue in Rochester, NY. Greg’s band at the time was Great Was the Fall, a beatdown hardcore band with two frontmen. After opening for some national metal acts, I introduced myself after the show. I was overjoyed that Greg and his band represented Christ, our Lord. I connected again with Greg when his band played the large iMatter festival, being impressed once again by his vocal power.”

The song was recorded, mixed and mastered by Brian Moore of Red Booth Recording. The video was done by Dustin James Design.

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
