From The Press Release
Death Metal legends Deicide announces a new partnership with Reigning Phoenix Music (RPM) for their upcoming, 13th full-length album.
The influential Florida Death Metal legends finished recording the self-produced new album and are in the process of adding the final touches to the new slab of brutality, with a release date to be announced. This marks the first time recording with their new guitar player, Taylor Nordberg, who joined the band last year.
“With great pleasure and after several years of debate and consideration, I wish to announce the signing of a historic one album deal with the newly formed RPM music for the development and marketing of the newest Deicide album, Banished By Sin. We look forward to working with all the talented hand-picked individuals that create RPM music and adding our latest accompaniment to the Deicide catalogue,” said Glen Benton
Gerardo Martinez comments: “We would like to welcome The Satan Spawns’ Deicide to RPM, and we cannot wait to release the very fitting new 13th chapter of their very successful and historied career! Many of us grew up in the original early Death Metal years and Deicide was in many people’s soundtracks. As for me, I ended up in the principal’s office in High School, for wearing the original Legion shirt as the back print was dangerous and controversial. Let’s bring some of that back!”
Founded in 2023, Reigning Phoenix Music is truly the 100% independently owned vision of music industry professional Gerardo Martinez, and avionics and tech entrepreneur, Sven Bogner. The blueprint is to continue to help heavy metal, extreme, hard, and heavy music thrive by partnering with an array of well-established acts, new talent, and iconic artists, by offering best services and practices in the industry. But most important is to help the artists amplify their art and talent to a winning formula for success!
The legendary death metal band formed in Tampa, Florida in 1987 by current and surviving members, drummer/composer Steve Asheim, and bassist/vocalist/lyricist Glen Benton. The band rose to mainstream success in 1992 with their second album Legion and is credited as the second best-selling death metal band of the Soundscan Era. Since their debut album in 1990, Deicide has released twelve studio albums, one live album, two compilation albums and two live DVDs. In November 2003, their first two albums, Deicide and Legion, were ranked second and third place respectively in best-selling death metal albums of the SoundScan era. Deicide is known for being uncompromising and crafting some of the best, most punishing Death Metal music in their three decade-plus of existence. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on their thirteenth album. Expect the most intense, brutal, and savagely catchy slab of Florida Death Metal!
