Deicide has been having a pretty eventful 2022 so far. The band recently announced their new guitarist Taylor Nordberg, whose name you might know from The Absence and Inhuman Condition, and got added to Maryland Deathfest 2022 after Morbid Angel pulled out. Now according in an interview with Brews N Tunes, Nordberg has revealed the first new Deicide album in four years is mostly finished! Nordberg said the band had most of it done before he joined, and hopefully that it'll be out this year.
"They had started most of the new album before I joined, but since announcing [the full-album performance of] Legion, we've kind of shifted gears and we're trying to lock that in and get a set prepped just in the event that a show pops up. But they have most of the new album prepped, and then we're hammering out, ironing out some details with the last couple songs.
"So hopefully that will be out this year. I don't know any concrete plans on when we're gonna start pre-production or recording or any of that. But hopefully this year. That would be awesome. But the material is sounding killer. It sounds like Deicide."
In the meantime, you can check out Nordberg rehearsing with the band below.
