Earache Records has issued the following press release:
Legendary death metal outfit DEICIDE have begun work on their ninth studio album at Florida's Morrisound Studios, the follow-up to their 2006 Billboard charting album "The Stench of Redemption."
With a confirmed title of "Till Death Do Us Part," the record promises to be Deicide's most savage and aggressive to date. Drummer Steve Asheim has begun the process by laying down drum tracks on a set of tracks that retain all the high speed intensity of the last album, but throw in a few surprises along the way. Asheim himself has this to say on the process so far:
"The songs will have a very evil and chaotic nature to them and will include the extensive arrangements and riffage that made 'Stench…' so great."
Fans worried about recent stories concerning the demise of the band can rest easy according to Asheim.
"There's no mistaking…it's Deicide. It feels like a cross between 'Stench…' and 'Legion', and is definitely the next logical step for Deicide."
Once the music is down, the final stage will be for Glen Benton to contribute his unique vocal approach, with recordings scheduled for completion as early as November. "Till Death Us Do Part" is expected to be released early-2008 via Earache Records.
"We keep pushing what we do," concludes Asheim. "The guitars are even more sinister…the drums even more brutal. Deicide fans may be shocked at how fast this came around, but they're going to eat it up."
