Listen to the New Deicide Song or Be “Excommunicated” from the Metal Community


After making us wait two interminable weeks, Deicide have at last premiered a song from their new album, Overtures of Blasphemy. It’s called “Excommunicated,” and while it doesn’t find the legendary death metallers reinventing the wheel, it does find them crafting one of the best imaginable versions of that wheel. Which is to say, Deicide have always sounded like Deicide, but some Deicide shit sounds siqqer than other Deicide shit, and this shit is siqq.

As a bonus, there’s the fun game of trying to figure out what the fuck Glen Benton is screaming. There’s a moment at 2:17 where I’d swear he’s saying “Where is your wife who’ll turn us both to dust?”

Listen below. Overtures of Blasphemy is out September 14.
