Death Metal icons, Deicide, has returned with “Overtures Of Blasphemy”, which sees the band return to their roots to create a stellar and uncompromising extreme metal masterpiece!
“Overtures Of Blasphemy” was produced by Jason Suecof (The Black Dahlia Murder, Trivium) at Audio Hammer Studios and comes with a brilliant artwork by Zbigniew Bielak (Watain, Ghost, Paradise Lost). The album will be released through Century Media Records worldwide on September 14, 2018.

After 30 years, it’s plausible to think Deicide would want to slow down and soften the message. None of that is happening on new album “Overtures of Blasphemy”. In fact, Deicide, with head demon Glen Benton and co-conspirator Steve Asheim at the helm, are only becoming darker, heavier, and more extreme.
I originally thought that the older I got the more mellow I’d get. That’s not the case. I would say I’m darker now than I ever was. What I’ve been through over the years has definitely darkened my heart and soul.
Lyrically, Overtures of Blasphemy continues Deicide’s crusade against, not just Christianity, but all religions. Benton says the lyrics also dig deep into his personal darkness:
It’s what I am. Death metal is what I do.
