Despite an announcement to the contrary on UNHOLY GHOST's web site, former DEICIDE guitarist Eric Hoffman has told BLABBERMOUTH.NET that he "never played with [UNHOLY GHOST]" and "did not join" the group.

Hoffman is currently involved in a legal dispute with DEICIDE frontman Glen Benton over the rights to the long-running Florida-based band's name.

"My brother [Brian Hoffman, ex-DEICIDE guitarist] and I are working on getting a new DEICIDE together," Hoffman told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "The court will decide who gets the name DEICIDE."

Glen Benton IS Deicide. The Hoffman bros would be foolish to try to continue with the name DEICIDE without him.

I saw Deicide on their euro treck, and they slayed with Suzuki and Owen on lead guitar.
However the prospect of there being two "Deicide" s is kind of cool.
