New Deicide Guitarist Taylor Nordberg Says The Band “Have Most Of The New Album Prepped”

During a recent appearance on the “Brews N Tunes” podcast, new Deicide guitarist Taylor Nordberg offered an update on the band’s new album. He said the following:

“They had started most of the new album before I joined, but since announcing [that we are going to celebrate the 30th anniversary of DEICIDE’s sophomore album] ‘Legion’ [by performing the LP in its entirety], we’ve kind of shifted gears and we’re trying to lock that in and get a set prepped just in the event that a show pops up. But they have most of the new album prepped, and then we’re hammering out, ironing out some details with the last couple songs. So hopefully that will be out this year. I don’t know any concrete plans on when we’re gonna start pre-production or recording or any of that. But hopefully this year. That would be awesome. But the material is sounding killer. It sounds like DEICIDE.”

Taylor Nordberg (The Absence, Inhuman Condition) Joins Deicide

Taylor Nordberg (The Absence, Inhuman Condition) has joined Deicide as their new guitarist. He was recruited as a replacement for Chris Cannella. Frontman Glen Benton issued the following statement:

“We are pleased to announce and welcome Taylor Nordberg to the Deicide family! An amazing and accomplished guitarist who takes our sound to the next level and brings a profound level of professionalism that completes and compliments the Deicide machine! GB”

Chris Cannella Says Deicide Are Writing “Amazing Stuff” For Their Next Album

During a recent interview with Jason Saulnier, Deicide guitarist Chris Cannella offered an update on the writing process for the band’s new album. He said the following:

“Since I moved out [to Florida from Arizona] a year ago, we were writing a lot of music, and then we kind of started over when I got out here and I was able to rehearse all the time rather than just meeting up when I was commuting for work. So we’ve been really focusing and writing just really — in my opinion — some amazing stuff. And when we do record it, you will definitely hear a different vibe with the band, because the camaraderie is so strong. I mean, the four of us in a room, we just have a great time. We love being around each other, [and] we like writing music together. You’re gonna hear a lot of that. It’s just a really strong, aggressive… A lot of guitar work, a lot of cool drumming. Glen’s [Benton, bass/vocals] stuff that he is working on — it’s great. It’s exciting. I couldn’t be happier.”

Ex-Deicide Guitarist Eric Hoffman Says Glen Benton Is A “Scum Fuck”

It looks like there is still bad blood between ex-Deicide guitarist Eric Hoffman and vocalist Glen Benton. Hoffman recently went on a bit of a Facebook rant, calling Benton a “scum fuck.”

Hoffman said the following:

“If I deicide/AMON Eric Hoffman stop death metal, it was lack of support. Last AMON album released was out of my own pocket.. I will collect what has been rightfully owned and that scum fuck Glen and the Turtles, they only care about themselves.

I will never stop death metal and yes we will kick your ass Glen any time any place. I will collect my money clearly fraud scum fuck.

You say gloves are off your better put some on, the anger in me, your head will spin around like the fucking exorcist, you know where I live, welcome anytime collecting all my merch for royalties for 20 years and royalties for 13 on scars believe me I will not let you get away with this, we will meet again, anger is building and has it’s vengeance.

Yes again he was hired I drew the logo found the name. that’s why I use his name AMON. fucking prick.”

Last year, Benton commented on his and Hoffman’s relationship during an appearance on the Into The Combine Podcast:

“Every time we do a record, I guess [Eric] loses his mind over there and he can’t handle hearing us proceeding without them. It’s been what — 14, 15 years since those two departed, and they did one shitty album and tried ripping off the fans, charged them for videos and bullshit like that.

And then from there, they’ve done two shitty shows here in the state of Florida, and from what I was told, they almost canceled those. So their track record speaks for itself. Our track record speaks for itself.

When you don’t have the original singer, then you are the official cover band. You wanna make yourself look even more stupid than you already do, by all means, go ahead.”
