Deicide Announce New Album
I couldn’t help but chuckle when I saw the name of the new Deicide album, Overtures of Blasphemy. Deicide have been playing heretical death metal for thirty years. If this is the overture, what the crap were the last eleven albums?
Eh, whatever. The important thing is: new Deicide! Although there’s no single to hear just yet, the band’s Jason Suecof-produced twelfth album does now have a September 14 release date. Says the inimitable Glen Benton of the release:
“This album came together over time, meaning we didn’t want to rush it. A few people might remember an interview where Steve Asheim (original member, drummer/songwriter) said ‘the material is done, but it’s just not there yet.’ Well, that was the jumping off point of when this album truly started taking shape and the songs became what they are now…complete, compact and effective. As the band pushed forward, so did the writing process and a few other processes which made the record and the band stronger. The result is ‘Overtures Of Blasphemy,’ perhaps the group’s strongest release to date.
“Jason Suecoff lended his considerable talents and attention to detail in making the tracking of the songs as great as they can be and the final mix as sonically brutal, yet as listenable as possible. An arduous process, but one well worth the time and effort.”
And here’s the quite-rad cover art by Zbigniew M. Bielak (Ghost, Paradise Lost, Mayhem):
You’ll know more when we do.
