The new Deicide record is almost here, according to bassist and vocalist Glen Benton.
In an interview with The Garza Podcast, Benton said the new Deicide record was written in 2021 and that the band is "getting ready to hammer this deal out right now and get this thing out." As for how it'll sound, Benton credits Steve Asheim for writing material that he feels is both anthemic and progressive. Which aren't generally two words you'd associate with Deicide, but hey – keeping an open mind is important.
"The new stuff that we're writing now is really anthem-style stuff. It's really good, man. There's a lot of prog stuff in there, mixed in there. Steve's [Asheim, drums] our prog guy, man; he's the progressive rock guy. He likes to write those really black metal riffs and the progressive stuff. He's an amazing talent, man. He plays piano. He can play sweeps on guitar. He's a drummer. Yeah, he can do it all."
Deicide's upcoming record will be their first since Overtures Of Blasphemy in 2018, and first to feature guitarist Taylor Nordberg in place of Chris Cannella. In the meantime, Deicide will release their upcoming Roadrunner Years vinyl box set in early 2023. The set includes (but isn't limited to) the first-ever worldwide vinyl releases of In Torment In Hell, Insineratehymn, and When Satan Lives, as well as first-ever North American vinyl releases of Serpent Of The Light and Once Upon The Cross. Pre-orders are available here.
