DEICIDE Announce New Album Overtures Of Blasphemy Coming This September
Do you have some room for Satan in your life? Because he is returning in the form of new Deicide music. Overtures Of Blasphemy will be released on September 14th via Century Media Records.
The band worked once again with Jason Suecof at Audio Hammer Studios, who knows his way around a death metal recording. The cover art is pretty brutal:
The lineup for this album includes Glen Benton (vocals, bass), Steve Asheim Drums), Kevin Quirion (guitars), Mark English (guitars).
Glen Benton seems pretty pumped on the release:
"This album came together over time, meaning we didn't want to rush it. A few people might remember an interview where Steve Asheim (original member, drummer/songwriter) said 'the material is done, but it's just not there yet.' Well, that was the jumping off point of when this album truly started taking shape and the songs became what they are now…complete, compact and effective. As the band pushed forward, so did the writing process and a few other processes which made the record and the band stronger. The result is Overtures Of Blasphemy, perhaps the group’s strongest release to date.
“Jason Suecoff lended his considerable talents and attention to detail in making the tracking of the songs as great as they can be and the final mix as sonically brutal, yet as listenable as possible. An arduous process, but one well worth the time and effort."
The cover art was created by Zbigniew M. Bielak who gave this quote about his process:
“If you experienced the death metal boom of the early 90s first hand, you know why Deicide's flaming logo was the ultimate threat in the sanity department. Working with Glen Benton was a great honor and a throwback to the time, when death metal aesthetics were at their vilest. Satan Spawn the Caco Deamon is alive and well.”
We'll keep you posted when a track is released.
