All Shall Perish has posted the following message online about losing Eddie Hermida as he joins Suicide Silence:

"Earlier today, the official announcement came out that Hernan 'Eddie' Hermida has joined Suicide Silence. Eddie has quit All Shall Perish to Join Suicide Silence full time.

"To all our fans who want to know about the future of ASP, keep this in mind: Mike Tiner has been a major writer in the band and will continue to be. We had big shoes to fill when guys like Chris Storey and original vocalist Craig Betit left All Shall Perish, but we were able to rebound with the addition of massive talents like Adam Pierce, Francesco Artusato and Eddie Hermida.

"Eddie has big shoes to fill himself, stepping in for our fallen brother Mitch Lucker. All Shall Perish has continued before and will continue now. We wish Suicide Silence all the best."

Suicide Silence vocalist Mitch Lucker died in a motorcycle crash back in 2012. The band comments on the addition of Eddie:

"Suicide Silence is pleased to announce the addition of Eddie Hermida to the family. Many of you may be familiar with Eddie through his work with All Shall Perish. For those of you unfamiliar, our relationship with Eddie goes way back to the Spreading Disease Tour, our first U.S. headlining run, in 2006. Mitch & Eddie remained long-time friends and we felt that if the band were to continue it should be with someone Mitch knew personally and respected as both a friend and an artist.

"We've chosen Eddie as our new frontman in association with this long-standing relationship & countless other attributes from his quality of character to his dynamic vocal abilities that make him the absolute best fit for this band.

"We hope you all will embrace this decision with open arms understanding that this is what Mitch would have wanted. He would want his brothers to stick together & carry forward what he helped create. Every time we step on stage it will be in his honor & for his legacy. Suicide Silence will continue."

Never really liked either band, found them to be generic core music. Mitch Lucker was a much better vocalist though. Hopefully they manage to pull a decent sound together with the new guy, but seems doubtful without Mitch. Also, get your sh** together metalunderground, you used to be an awesome site and now you won't even let me sign up

Listened to the snip it of his cover of "You Only Live Once" and don't really like the fit. May have to change up their sound to have the vocals fit better. Curious to see who ASP has take his place and how that ends up sounding.

I object to any all the "generic sounding" opinions. But my objection is subjective lol. Compared to Suicide Silence, All Shall Perish is anything but generic, at least the new album. I didn't like the snippet, but it's only a cover. The originals they'll come up with will be interesting I'm sure. The range Eddie is on a different plain than Mitches (RIP). I loved his voice, but I'm impressed with the sounds Eddie can get outta that throat. It'll be hard to replace him. ASP has some work to do.
