Deicide's Glen Benton is not one to hold back, or to forget. And he apparently holds a grudge with Slipknot over not coming through on an old promise.
Benton called out the band, and specifically frontman Corey Taylor during a recent interview on Talk Toomey:
"Not to fucking bust balls, but I'll bust balls. Slipknot: 'Oh we're going to take you guys out man, we're going to take you guys out dude.' Yeah blow me. That's what I say to you. Fucking blow me Corey Taylor and all you fags. OK. 'Oh we're going to take Deicide out on tour with us and blah blah blah.' Blowing air up our asses, back in the day You know what, you never did a fucking thing for us. You introduced us at a show once. Great, thanks. How about a fucking tour? How about fucking helping us out a little bit? I mean we've only been doing this for several years. You guys were like 'Dude you were what got me started.' Well you know what, return the fucking favor. You know what I mean?"
"I'm not trying to bust balls, but when bands like Slipknot and shit, they fucking… say they're going take us out and shit… It's just one big fucking puff of air up your ass. Not that I give a fuck about opening for them, you know what I'm saying? Because I don't. I'll tell ya this about our band, we've done it our way, we'll always do it our way and the success we've achieved, we've earned every little bit of it. We don't compromise, we're not about to kiss corporate America's ass so that's why we're still underground man."
Update: Corey Taylor has since responded to Benton's accusations. Read his response here.
Well, if Slipknot didn't ask Deicide to tour before, they certainly will not now. I'm also guessing Benton never read our editorial about how calling somebody a fag is just uncreative. Come on, Glen… you're a lyricist. Certainly, you could've come up with a more clever insult.
In the same interview, Benton also revealed the band is finishing up work on the follow up to Deicide's 2013 album In The Minds Of Evil:
“Next month, September, we’re going to start tracking drums and guitars. And then I’ll start writing lyrics—I’m already started on most of it now. I’ve got an album concept already, got the titles, maybe the possible title track and everything. I’m telling ya man, Steve wrote… I really lit a fire under him man, and you know, Steve‘s responsible for writing a lot of our catchier shit. I really lit a fire under him this time and he wrote some really astounding shit this time…”
Maybe, they can tour with Mushroomhead then.
