DIEHUMANE (Ex-Exodus, Ex-Type O Negative) To Release Debut Album “The Grotesque” In Early 2023

DIEHUMANE, the new project featuring Rick Hunolt (ex-Exodus), Sal Abruscato (A Pale Horse Named Death, ex-Type O Negative), Garret West, Joshua Vargas, and Greg Hilligiest Jr., are planning to release their debut album, “The Grotesque,” early next year. The effort will be released in partnership with producer Ulrich Wild’s WURMgroup and DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara’s The Oracle Management.

Fafara said the following:

“We here at Oracle Management are very proud to announce that DIEHUMANE has chosen to allow us to represent them. The music belongs in its own category being artistic, heavy, and unique in its own right. There’s seasoned musicians at the helm and one of the best vocalists I’ve heard in many years. Here’s to the future!”

Each band member also commented:

Hunolt:

“To be honest, being in a band wasn’t even on my mind at the time a dear friend called me and said, ‘Hey, I know these guys looking for a guitar player.’ He sent me some raw tracks, and I listened for about a month before I replied, and it was the music that I was looking for. It gave me the ability to express myself musically and, even more important, was radically different than anything I have ever played. Music needs ‘different’ in order to evolve. [There’s] so much talent in this band, and I can’t wait for you to experience DIEHUMANE.”

Abruscato:

“I am looking forward to the release of this very different and unique album I had the pleasure writing/performing the drum tracks for. It’s different from what I have done in the past and it’s been fantastic to be a part of it with everyone in the band, Ulrich Wild/WURMgroup and The Oracle Management. I feel folks will be blown away.”

West:

“I grew up listening to Sal and Rick. Then Dez took us into his flock with The Oracle and Ulrich (a powerhouse responsible for many of my favorite records) made it his mission to make us sound pristine. What we have here is something special. I just hope people find it as special as we do.”

Hilligiest:

“I want to thank Ulrich and Dez both for taking interest in us and helping us get it out there. I’m just happy to finally get it out to people’s ears. We’ve been hearing this album in many different forms for two years now, it’s time to let everybody else in the world hear it as it is meant to be heard. I hope you all like it as much as we do.”

Vargas:

“Typically the formation of a project and subsequent creation of an album marks the beginning of something, whereas this one starts with the end, and actually ends with the beginning of something. All of these songs began as a way of dealing with complete and total isolation in 2020 and the loss of what life was before that year, and ends marking the beginning of something awesome, and the album sounds like exactly that. Recording began in a dingy townhome in Galveston, Texas and ended in fucking Hollywood. The musical journey we all took on this album is something I wouldn’t trade for world. Big thanks to Ulrich Wild (WURMgroup) and Dez Fafara (The Oracle Management) for going on this crazy journey with us. I’m so happy with this album that I don’t even care if anyone hates it.”
