Deicide Release Date For New Album “Overtures Of Blasphemy” Set For September

Deicide‘s new effort “Overtures Of Blasphemy” will be out September 14th via Century Media. The group worked with producer Jason Suecof (Trivium, The Black Dahlia Murder) at Audio Hammer Studios on this latest outing. Artist Zbigniew M. Bielak (Ghost, Mayhem) created the cover art for the new full-length, which can be seen below.

Comments vocalist/bassist Glen Benton of the effort:

“This album came together over time, meaning we didn’t want to rush it. A few people might remember an interview where Steve Asheim (original member, drummer/songwriter) said ‘the material is done, but it’s just not there yet.’ Well, that was the jumping off point of when this album truly started taking shape and the songs became what they are now…complete, compact and effective. As the band pushed forward, so did the writing process and a few other processes which made the record and the band stronger. The result is Overtures Of Blasphemy, perhaps the group’s strongest release to date. Jason Suecof lended his considerable talents and attention to detail in making the tracking of the songs as great as they can be and the final mix as sonically brutal, yet as listenable as possible. An arduous process, but one well worth the time and effort.”

Charred Walls of the Damned streams new album, ‘Creatures Watching Over The Dead’, in full on HowardStern.com

– September 21st, 2016 –

Charred Walls Of The Damned – the brainchild of former Death/Iced Earth drummer Richard Christy – will release their third full-length, Creatures Watching Over The Dead, this Friday (September 23rd) via Metal Blade Records. In addition to Richard’s storied career as a drummer, he has been a staple on The Howard Stern Show for his diaper wearing and crank calling antics. Today both of his worlds come together as the Charred Walls Of The Damned album Creatures Watching Over The Dead is available as an exclusive stream in advance of the release on HowardStern.com. Check out the new record in its entirety at: howardstern.com

Creatures Watching Over The Dead can be pre-ordered in various formats now at: metalblade.com/cwotd

With five years having elapsed since the quartet dropped Cold Winds On Timeless Days, it’s understandable that fans have been yearning for more, but Charred Walls Of The Damned has not exactly been sitting around, kicking their heels. Christy – who has previously played with Iced Earth, Death, Control Denied, Burning Inside and Leash Law – played drums on Monte Pittman‘s Inverted Grasp Of Balance, wrote music for New York State’s “The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze” event, and co-wrote a heavy metal comedy Viking rock opera with guitarist Jason Suecof and Titmouse Animation, titled “Majestic Loincloth”. Suecof is of course one of the most in demand producers in contemporary metal. Then there’s legendary bassist Steve DiGiorgio, who made a name for himself in the ranks of Death, Testament, Vintersorg, Dragonlord and a myriad of other great metal bands; in recent years, he has laid down his inimitable style on records from Ephel Duath, Soen, Memorain and others. Which just leaves vocalist Tim “Ripper” Owens, who for a time fronted Judas Priest, before lending his formidable pipes to Iced Earth and Yngwie Malmsteen‘s mighty compositions, touring relentlessly under his own name, and starting a new band (Project Rock).

When it was time to lay the songs down, Charred Walls Of The Damned convened at Suecof’s Audiohammer Studio, outside Orlando, FL. The nine resulting tracks are heavy, catchy, anthemic and downright killer music to wreck your neck to. See below for the official track-listing!

Creatures Watching Over the Dead track-listing
1. My Eyes
2. The Soulless
3. Afterlife
4. As I Catch My Breath
5. Lies
6. Reach into the Light
7. Tear Me Down
8. Living in the Shadow of Yesterday
9. Time Has Passed

Charred Walls Of The Damned line-up:
Richard Christy – Drums
Jason Suecof – Guitar, Producer
Tim “Ripper” Owens – Vocals
