Deicide Reveals New Guitarist Chris Cannella

American death metal stalwarts has announced that they have recruited Autumn’s End guitarist Chris Cannella to their ranks, replacing previous guitarist Mark English (also of Monstrosity.) A statement on the band’s official Facebook page reads as follows:

“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!

In addition to his work with Autumn’s End, Cannella is known for his role as a demo player for such guitar companies as Dean, Fender and Jackson among others, as well as being a member of the recently announced supergroup Bloodmoon Ritual, alongside former Exodus vocalist Rob Dukes, Dark Angel guitarist and bassist Eric Meyer and Michael Gonzalez and former Sacred Reich drummer Greg Hall.

Thunderstick Announces First Show In Thirty Years In Gravesend, Followed By Festival Appearances

On the back of the phenomenally positive reaction to last year’s album the eponymously named Thunderstick hit the stage in July for the first Thunderstick gig in over 30 years. Taking the stage at Gravesend’s infamous rock venue, itself celebrating 40 years of live music, Leo’s Red Lion will host a unique Thunderstick “showcase” gig a week before their performance at A New Day festival, after which the band will do select gigs through until the Autumn culminating at the Hard Rock Hell festival in November. The Gravesend gig will see Thunderstick performing their full festival set coupled with a post-gig Q&A session with Thunderstick creator Barry Graham Purkis and his band-mates.

Thunderstick aka Barry Graham Purkis comments:

“Energy, power, theatrics and outrage have always been present in the Thunderstick shows of old. We will ramp up those components considerably for the forthcoming New-NWOBHM 2018 stage shows. For those who were there first time round in the ‘80s welcome back we have missed you so much. For those about to experience us for the first time prepare yourselves for a journey. Viixen, Lee, Rex, Baz, and Thunderstick will steal your ‘rock ‘n’ roll heart’…”

On returning to this prized venue he reflects:

“The Red Lion in Northfleet has always been a ‘musical basecamp’ for me, both with Samson and with Thunderstick. Iron Maiden have their ‘Cart and Horses’…I have the ‘Red Lion’ Northfleet. Can’t wait to play there this summer.”

Lead vocalist Viixen adds:

“The sky drew dark and low with ominous clouds, the winds shriek, howl, cry, baying wolf like into the black, the first crack of lightening announces the reverberated boom of the overhead Thunder, in the eye of the savage storm thirty years plus in the coming, I will stand centre stage resolute in my ability to control, do not fear I am here for you…”

The Leo’s Red Lion gig will be followed up by a number of festival appearances including A New Day Festival (August 3rd-5th), Hard Rock Hell (November 8th-11th) and Mearfest (November).
