New Suicide Silence Song Pulled From ‘Devil May Cry 5’ Video Game Due To Eddie Hermida’s Past Sexual Misconduct Allegation

Video game developers Capcom have pulled a newly premiered music video for a track featuring members of Suicide Silence. Members of that band had teamed up with composer Cody Matthew Johnson for a new song called “Subhuman” that was to serve as the ‘battle theme’ to the lead character Dante in the forthcoming fifth installment of the ‘Devil May Cry‘ series.

However, hours after debuting the song via a music video at the Tokyo Game Show yesterday, the developers were made aware of the accusations of sexual misconduct that were leveled against Suicide Silence vocalist Eddie Hermida this past November. Hermida himself previously issued this apology on the matter. In a statement issued to Kotaku, Capcom stated:

“The music was recorded for the game before the incident came to light and we were unaware of the incident until now. However, as we are now aware of the current situation, Capcom has decided that moving forward, we will not further highlight the Dante battle theme for promotional purposes at this time. We are also currently evaluating what options are possible for the full game at this point, which is dependent on various factors such as resources.”

The game itself is due in stores on March 08th and is unclear if the song will now make it into the final game.
