Florida extreme metal act DEICIDE have completed the recording process for their long-awaited new studio album
On Saturday (May 6), DEICIDE shared a graphic to their social media which read “The new album is finished,” and included the following caption: “The recording is done, it’s going to test mixing, then mastering. The artwork is amazing and is in its finishing stages, everything is ready to go and is in the record company’s hands now. Now we all wait…”
During a recent appearance on HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta‘s “The Jasta Show”, DEICIDE mainman Glen Benton spoke about the band’s new album, saying: “Well, we signed a new deal with one of these record companies out there. I guess I’m not at liberty to say anything, who it is yet; [they’re] gonna announce it soon. Yeah, man, we’ve had the album in the works, but we got stuck doing this whole ‘Legion’ [30th-anniversary celebration] thing, and it kind of put the record to the backburner. So now it’s out of the way, and we’re really… I’m in the process of writing lyrics right now.”
Regarding what he and his bandmates were looking for in a record deal, Glen said: “We wanted a one-record deal, man, with a big pile of money to get it done. And we got it… We get to both walk away after it. I think it kind of puts people to do a better job and to promote it better. I think it’s gonna be a lot better experience for us.
“We’ve always had these multi-record deals that we’ve had to do. And you know as well as I do, after the first record, you’re, like, ‘What did I do?’ It was a toss-up between doing it like this and just doing it ourselves. And me and Steve [Asheim, DEICIDE drummer] don’t wanna lick envelopes and put stamps on shit. So that’s why we went this route.”
DEICIDE‘s last album, “Overtures Of Blasphemy”, was released in September 2018 via Century Media.
