Deicide have launched an all new album by the name of “Overtures Of Blasphemy”! It struck the world on September 14th through Century Media Records.
To support the effort, the band just launched an all new music video for “Defying The Sacred” which can be viewed below. This was directed by Scott Hansen who has also directed clips for Animals As Leaders and Whitechapel in the past.
Bielak comments: “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.”
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.”
