Death metal veterans DEICIDE have parted ways with guitarist Jack Owen. A replacement has been announced as Mark English (MONSTROSITY).
One of the founding members of CANNIBAL CORPSE, Owen joined DEICIDE in 2004 and played on the latter band’s last four studio albums: “The Stench Of Redemption” (2006), “Till Death Do Us Part” (2008), “To Hell With God” (2011) and “In The Minds Of Evil” (2013). Jack Owen also played guitar for Dutch symphonic black metallers CARACH ANGREN on their summer 2016 North American tour.
DEICIDE is currently recording the next studio album, which should be out early next year via Century Media.
DEICIDE drummer Steve Asheim told Metal Wani back in May about the musical direction of the band’s new material:
“It seems like we’re gonna be taking the same approach. I mean, we’re not gonna fix what isn’t broken, as far as what we do. You know, we’ve been writing heavy riffs. We’re just gonna make ’em heavier as work [on] them together.”
