Deeds Of Flesh - Return With New Album Announcement, Share Details

American brutal/tech death metal formation Deeds Of Flesh have returned with a brand new album announcement. Dubbed Nucleus, it is set for release via Unique Leader Records on 11th December, 2020 (Jan. 15th, 2021 on Vinyl). First single, "Alyen Scourge", is already available for listening below. Nucleus is band's first release in 7 years and the first one since the tragic passing of guitarist/vocalist and Unique Leader founder Erik Lindmark, who lost a battle with Sclerosis in 2018.

Nucleus features guest performances some of the biggest names in extreme metal to celebrate his life and contribution to metal. Vocalist Jacoby Kingston is joined by:

Luc Lemay (Gorguts)
John Gallagher (Dying Fetus)
George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher (Cannibal Corpse)
Frank Mullen (Suffocation)
Matti Way (Submerged)
Bill Robinson (Decrepit Birth)
Dusty Boisjolie (Severed Savior)
Anthony Trapani (Odious Mortem, Severed Savior)
Obie Flett (Pathology)
Robbe Kok (Disavowed)
Jon Zig (Serpentian)

Guitarist Craig Peters commented: "After we started the writing process for Nucleus about 7 years ago, I'm very glad that now fans will be able to hear what we've been working on. This album is special to me because I got to work closely with Erik on the material to really craft a cinematic experience for the listener. With the passing of Erik we were all saddened by the news and not sure where things would go with the album and the band. It only seemed right to have Jacoby and Mike come back into the fold to help finish this album. They're such a huge part of the Deeds Of Flesh legacy that I couldn't see the album completed any other way. Nucleus completes this amazing story that Erik started with Of What's To Come with a fusion of older and newer musical elements of the band with stuff fans have never heard before. Get ready because this album is an intense journey!"

Vocalist Jacoby Kingston: "After losing Erik, it didn't feel right to have anyone else do the vocals on this album, so I knew coming out of retirement only made sense. Mike Hamilton and I made a plan to tackle the story and lyrics as a team and it came out better than I could have hoped for. Writing and performing on this album brought me back to the early days of recording Gradually Melted and Trading Pieces, when everything was new and exciting. We put 100% into this album and I think it really shows. The dream team of guest vocalists that laid down tracks on this album is ridiculous and humbling at the same time. We are honored to have them, and I think fans will be excited about it once they learn who is on there. The music is freaking crazy, but it's definitely a Deeds album. We've managed to mix some of the old and new together to come out with a hybrid form for a new era."

Something I'm finally legitimately hyped for. I really hope the passion project aspect bleeds through and it influenced the writing process. Not going to spoil myself with teasers or singles until it's released in full.

I am so happy Deeds isn't dead. Portals was absolutely crushing and Erik's passing was devastating.
