Deicide Gearing Up For New Album

Earache Records head honcho Digby Pearson has revealed that DEICIDE has finished demoing most of the material that will appear on the group's next album, tentatively due in early 2008. "Touring as been curtailed as Glen [Benton, bass/vocals] has some legal issues pending BUT that has given the main writer — Steve Asheim [drums] — plenty of time to get creative," Digby said. "Both Jack Owen [guitar; ex-CANNIBAL CORPSE] and Steve have been working on demo-ing some more 'rock- based' projects and Ralph [Santolla; guitar] was ousted during the turmoil, but he quickly resurfaced as OBITUARY's guitarist.
Pearson continued, "DEICIDE DID look to be going nowhere — BUT — incredibly, out of the blue, we just received eight new DEICIDE songs in demo form, and they are incredible, like 'The Stench of Redemption'  material but now even faster, if such a thing is possible. The band — Glen, Jack, Steve and probably Dave Suzuki [of VITAL REMAINS] (ex-guitarist Ralph Santolla might just appear as guest soloist?) will more than likely enter Morrisound Recording in September to record the new album. Earache will officially announce its release nearer the time, probably in stores around January 2008.
"As ever with DEICIDE, all information is subject to change."
"The Stench of Redemption" was released in August 2006 via Earache Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Scars of the Crucifix" was recorded at Morrisound in Tampa, Florida and marked the first DEICIDE recording following the departure of the Hoffman brothers.
DEICIDE released a DVD, "Doomsday L.A.", on February 6, 2007 via Earache. The set, which was filmed using multiple cameras on November 10, 2006 at the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles, features the group's most recent lineup of Glen Benton (bass, vocals), Steve Asheim (drums), Jack Owen (guitar; ex-CANNIBAL CORPSE) and Santolla. The bonus material incorporates exclusive interviews and promo videos, including the recent "Homage for Satan" clip.
