AMON Feat. Former DEICIDE Members ERIC And BRIAN HOFFMAN: Lyric Video For New Song 'The Gates Will Burn'
February 21, 2019
The official lyric video for a demo version of a new AMON song called "The Gates Will Burn" can be seen below.
AMON was the band that changed its name to DEICIDE in 1989. When Eric and Brian Hoffman left DEICIDE, they resurrected AMON and released an album called "Liar In Wait" in 2012.
Last year, Hammerheart Records entered into an agreement with Eric and Brian to work together on AMON and the classic DEICIDE catalog.
Hammerheart will release a new AMON album, will reissue "Liar In Wait" and also the legendary AMON demos from 1987 and 1989.
Said Hammerheart: "We heard new songs, and they have the classic AMON/DEICIDE crunch/vibe. They are catchy yet brutal, they are quality death metal par excellence."
After releasing its second full-length album, AMON will tour worldwide and play a full set of only old-school songs, taken from the first four DEICIDE albums.
AMON recorded two demos — 1987's "Feasting The Beast" and 1989's "Sacrifical" — before signing with Roadrunner Records and changing its name to DEICIDE. After producing two extremely successful albums as DEICIDE, the band chose to make the AMON demos available on CD in 1993 under the title "Amon: Feasting The Beast".
The Hoffman brothers parted ways with DEICIDE in 2004 after becoming embroiled in a bitter dispute with DEICIDE bassist/vocalist Glen Benton over royalties and publishing issues.
