Subhuman - Dante's Battle Theme From Devil May Cry 5 OST (HD)
"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."
Subhuman - Dante's battle theme from Devil May Cry 5 OST (HD)
For myself and other giddy fans, we got new gameplay footage on Tuesday with the latest DMC5 showcasing at the Tokyo Game Show. This new TGS trailer, whilst revealing more of DMC4's Nero returning as a playable character and a DILF version of always too-cool-for-school leading man, Dante, we also heard the game's new battle theme. This song, 'Subhuman', is actually a two-year-long musical collaboration between game composer Cody Matthew Johnson (who also worked on Capcom Vs. Marvel: Infinite) and deathcore-favourites-turned-teehee-masters Suicide Silence.
As a fan, this track also seems like a miss-understanding of the source material, especially when considering past music used for the series beforehand. DMC3's solid though albeit edgy theme, 'Devils Never Cry', used gravely whispered vocals, goth vibes, choral sections, juxtaposed tones, electronic percussion, and over-saturated nu-metal riffs to real effect. It's corny, but it worked wonders in-game, and for the story arcs of Dante, Lady and Vergil as well. Then DMC4's jungle drum beats and chugging industrial-metal of 'Shall Never Surrender' worked as a solid battle theme too. Not only that, it's tonal shifts with added game samples, melodic vocals and instrumental changes in the second half leaned into that game's theme of determination; also being a sudden musical shift that mirrored the game's plot shift from Nero to Dante halfway through, and then back to Nero for the finale. Cheesy? Yeah, kinda. Stylistically and thematically fitting for the characters and the game's narrative? Absolutely! In the case of 'Subhuman', it just doesn't seem to fit into DMC5 nor the series as a whole.
When Capcom first revealed Devil May Cry 5, they introduced Nero's theme, Devil Trigger from vocalist Ali Edwards. The song was catchy, which made it all the stranger when Dante's theme was revealed to be an deathcore metal song titled Subhuman. The music video reached a high number of dislikes as fans voted against the song, and was removed from YouTube shortly after, but not for the reasons everyone thought. After fans discovered that the vocalist of the band, Suicide Silence, had admitted to sexual and emotional abuse of a fan who was a minor when their relationship began, Capcom pulled the music and publicly pontificated on the possibility of replacing the song but warned they might not have the resources to do so.
