DEICIDE Streams New Song ‘Excommunicated’

“Excommunicated”, a brand new song from Florida death metal veterans DEICIDE, has been released via Spotify and can be streamed below. The track is taken from the band’s long-awaited new album, “Overtures Of Blasphemy”, which will be released on September 14 via Century Media.

The follow-up to 2013’s “In The Minds Of Evil” was produced by Jason Suecof (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDERTRIVIUM) at AudioHammer Studios in Sanford, Florida. The cover artwork was created by Zbigniew M. Bielak (GHOSTPARADISE LOSTMAYHEM) and can be seen below.

Glen Benton states: “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.”

Cover artist Zbigniew Bielak comments on his artwork for “Overtures Of Blasphemy”: “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.”
