DEICIDE's BENTON On Upcoming CD: 'We Are Going Back To Our Roots'

December 3, 2002

DEICIDE frontman Glen Benton recently spoke to Britain's Terrorizer magazine about the group's freshly-inked deal with Earache Records following a 12-year-run with the Roadrunner label.

"We'd been talkin' to 'em for a while, man," he said. "We laid low for a little while and I talked to a lot of record companies, but Earache were the only ones to offer the deal that we wanted. We've been doin' this for years and we need a deal that's not all in the label's favor."

With regards to the length and nature of their tenure with Earache, Glen explained, "We signed the contract on Halloween day. We picked a good day for it. We signed for one record and we'll see how it goes. If everyone's happy, we'll sign for another. We need a label to provide us with promotion, a label that's glad to have us. It seems they wanna get all the extreme bands. They wanna support this shit and keep it goin'."

On the forthcoming album's scheduling and musical direction, Glen added, "I'd say we'll be in the studio around March, but we're touring to get some money up so we can live while we record. We've got more material than we know what to do with! Now we're doing records for us so it's back to the old thinking and the old ways of writing. We're writing to beat all — that's the way we do things. We're goin' back to our roots — who cares about musical logic? Fuck musical logic."
