KERRY KING and DEICIDE will both release new album this year, and on same label, Reigning Phoenix Music.

KERRY KING‘s debut solo album, From Hell I Rise, is slated for release on May 17th, while rumors suggest that DEICIDE‘s forthcoming LP will hit shelves on April 26th. What caught everyone’s attention? The uncanny resemblance between their album covers.

You can see the comparison of the covers below (as Old Deicide Facebook page pointed out):

In addition to King, From Hell I Rise features DEATH ANGEL vocalist Mark Osegueda, longtime SLAYER drummer Paul Bostaph, former HELLYEAH bassist Kyle Sanders, and ex–MACHINE HEAD and VIO-LENCE guitarist Phil Demmel.

According to King, the new music consists of “various religious topics, some war entries, heavy stuff, punky stuff, doomy stuff, and spooky stuff, with Herculean speeds achieved. If you’ve ever liked any SLAYER throughout any part of our history,” he adds, “there’s something on this record that you’ll get into, be it classic punk, fast punk, thrash, or just plain heavy metal!”
