Capital Chaos TV conducted an interview with Florida death metal veterans Deicide's drummer Steve Asheim at the Oakland Metro in Oakland, California.
States Asheim on Deicide's plans for 2015: "We got picked up for another record, so we're gonna start working on some new stuff, which we've got a couple of songs kind of framed out already. So we're gonna be busy again all through next year - next couple of years, it looks like. We're gonna work on a record and some more shows. It seems like they're gonna happen, so I'm looking forward to all that."
Continues Asheim on Deicide's longevity: "It's good to see that it is still going. It's weird when you hear kids talk about the band: 'We listented to you in high school.' It's like you hear that for years about how kids are listening to us in high school. So it's, like, we've been an ever-lasting presence in high schools for 20 years now. So, as we become multi-generational, it's, like, we have 50-year-old fans and then we still have 15-year-old fans that roll up. It's like the thing that… When I was a kid, Black Sabbath was, it's, like, that's what we've become - not in a selling sense, but in a how-people-think-about-your-band sense. I don't know… It's just a wild thing to have happened."

"We are very pleased to announce that our close friend, Miles Baker, will be taking on the duties of guitar for Rings of Saturn!
"Below is his play through of our song Peeling Arteries! This song focuses on a lot of difficult techniques for all instruments, and is more challenging then our newer material, so it is the perfect song for auditioning purposes.
"Also please be sure to check out Miles' project Interloper that Lucas Mann, and Aaron Stechauner are also invloved in! We can't wait to hit the road again and shred some new material from Lugal Ki En for all of you guys!" More...
California's Antagonist just wrapped up work on a forthcoming self-titled EP, which will contain six songs. New music is due out soon, along with official release details. Today the band has revealed the track listing will be as follows:
The following press release was also issued about the EP: "Their most radical and extreme music to date, the self-titled effort lives up to their name. The new tracks are stripped-down and straight to the point, moving away from the melodic metal of past releases and the commercial metal that has watered-down the style. Instead, Antagonist now relies on their punk and hardcore roots to get their message of social injustice, intolerance, and corruption across. The six-track effort is the biggest musical leap Antagonist has made in its 16 year existence, but it still holds true to what they have always been: an adversary of the status quo, both socially, musically, and lyrically."
