Deeds Of Flesh - Part Ways With Vocalist

The vocalist Corey Athos, who joined Deeds Of Flesh just last year, is now out of the band. Erik Lindmark, a founding member of the US extreme metallers, has issued the following statement explaining why: "As many know, a couple years back we did a drastic member change where I decided to go from doing both vocals and guitar to just guitar and backing vocals and adding Corey Athos (Flesh Consumed) to the lineup. Corey was going to take over, basically, all of the vocal duties, allowing me to concentrate more on just playing guitar and doing some backups here and there. We thought this would be a good move, allowing the vocals to be more aggressive and in-your-face, like on our last release, Of What's To Come."
