DECAPITATED were busy last week shooting the first video clip from their "Organic Hallucinosis" album. You can check out stills from the production of day 69 here. DECAPITATED are confirmed for the following festivals: May 26 – Fuck The Commerce Festival, MZA (Mehrzweckhalle) Luckau, Germany, July 22 – Metal Camp Festival, Tolmin, Slovenia. Expect more dates to be announced soon.
DEICIDE are still in the midst of recording at Morris Sound in Tampa, Florida this week. The band are working dilligently to complete work on their latest release, "The Stench Of Redemption", scheduled for a 6.6.06 release. In a phone conversation drummer Steve Asheim revealed the following update: "We’re tracking a few more leads and Glen has just started on his vocal tracks", said Asheim, "But things are coming out really great." One particular moment stood out for the band when guitarist Ralph Santolla finished up recording a lead. "Ralph came out and he said ‘I think that’s got to be the best lead I’ve ever played’, at which point Jim (Morris) said ‘you know, I think that’s the best lead I’ve ever recorded", Steve said. Coming from someone like Jim Morris who’s worked with so many of the Metal greats that is a seriously powerful statement. Additionally, Glen Benton has entered the studio and has been tracking his vocals over the last few days. Things are going very well and as Steve Asheim put it they sound "Sinister as Fuck." Benton’s vocals have helped to really carve out a better image of what the final results of this session will be. Lyrics for "The Stench Of Redemption" remain on the darker side of things, nothing out of the ordinary for Satan’s favorite band. Benton stated that one track, titled ‘Desecration’, deals with grave desecration and is an immediate response to the recent controversy in France. Glen has already shared his feelings on the subject but this is sure to add fuel to the fire. The band is now logging between 10-16 hour days on this project and seriously busting their asses to get this record in the can and ready for fans to go apeshit for.
