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.”

Deicide have revealed that they are planning a North American tour with Origin, Jungle Rot, and The Absence. Dates and venues are expected to be revealed soon.
Deicide have welcomed Chris Cannella (Autumn’s End) to the band as their new guitarist. He will be replacing Mark English in the group.
The band commented:
“When a band has been together for 30 years, change is inevitable. So with that said, we had to make that change. Our long time friend from Arizona, Chris Cannella recently started spending a lot of time in Florida for work. Immediately we began hanging out. We realized he was the missing piece of the puzzle. Together we are a musical match. We all work together and get along as if Chris has been in the band since it’s inception. Cannella has the experience of being a veteran in the industry as well as a guitar clinician across the globe-who lives and loves Metal! So please, let’s all welcome Chris Cannella as the official new guitar player of DEICIDE! We want to thank Mark English for stepping in during this transitional period. We will be seeing all of you across the world bringing our music to you more brutally than ever!”
