After some time off for the holidays, we're bringing back the Death Match! We've also re-vamped the Death Match Hall of Fame, which in addition to living on Loudwire.com, also now appears on the official Loudwire YouTube channel. Hall of Fame inductees will now get more exposure than ever, and these two bands will now face off for the chance to carve a path to the Hall.
Deicide's Glen Benton was the guest on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show this past weekend. He opened up about the band's latest album, 'In the Minds of Evil,' discussed how his life differs from public perception and more. If you missed Jackie’s show, here’s her full interview with Deicide's Glen Benton.
Almost a decade after founding guitarists Eric and Brian Hoffman left the band, Deicide are back with 'In the Minds of Evil,' their fourth album in the new era. Mainstays Glen Benton and Steve Asheim are rounded out by guitarists Jack Owen, who has been in the band since 2004, as well as on-and-off six-stringer Kevin Quirion, who makes his recording debut with the band.
On Oct. 22, brutal death metal got a little too brutal when fans' throats were slashed during Broken Hope's set as part of the 'No Salvation' 2013 tour with Deicide in El Paso, Texas. Reports indicated that three fans in total had their throats slashed with a box cutter and, luckily, all three were in stable condition following the attack. We are happy to report on the current condition of one of the healing victims, Julio Serrano.
In an incredibly close battle to the death, Swedish extreme metal masters Meshuggah were successful in defeating their Nuclear Blast labelmates All Shall Perish. This marks Meshuggah's second victory in a row, with only two more victories to go until their track ‘Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion’ is inducted into the Death Match Hall of Fame.
