Guitarist Taylor Nordberg (ABSENCE, INHUMAN CONDITION), who recently joined Florida death metal veterans DECIDEwas asked in a new interview with the “Brews N Tunes” podcast if he and his new bandmates started working on the 2018 follow-up “Blasphemy Overtures” album. He replied (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “They had started most of the new album before I arrived, but since the announcement [that we are going to celebrate the 30th anniversary of DEICIDE‘s sophomore album] ‘Legion’ [by performing the LP in its entirety], we kind of shifted gears and we’re trying to lock that in and have a set ready just in case a show comes up. But they prepared most of the new album, then we work, polish some details with the last two songs. So I hope it comes out this year. I don’t know of any concrete plans on when we’re going to start pre-production or recording or anything else. But hopefully this year. That would be great. But the material sounds killer. That resembles DECIDE.”
Earlier in the month, Nordberg told how he landed DECIDE concert in an interview with “The Zach Moonshine Show”. He said: “In 2019, my group ABSENCE shot with DECIDE in the States and we got to know the guys and we got along really well. And I actually discovered that glen [Benton, DEICIDE frontman] lives, like, two blocks away Jeremiah [Kling, THE ABSENCE drummer] and me, where we live. So Jeremiah and glen have become good friends and ride their bikes all the time. It’s a funny little thing to think about. But to make it short, [previous DEICIDE guitarist] Chris [Cannella]I believe he is the head of A&R at Dean Guitars so he’s focusing on that for now. I heard they needed a guitarist, so I learned a few songs, made a few videos and glen saw them and liked what he saw. So we had a few practices, and bang bang boom, here we are.”
Cinnamon left amicably DECIDE last month after a three-year run.
When bent over first announced Nordbergis added to DECIDEhe said in a statement: “We are pleased to announce and welcome Taylor Nordberg to the DECIDE family! An incredible and accomplished guitarist who takes our sound to the next level and brings a deep level of professionalism that complements and compliments the DECIDE machine!”
Cinnamon said in a separate statement, “Yes, it’s true. I’m no longer in DECIDE. There is no drama and we have all kept silent so as not to lead to drama or speculation.
“I have all the love and respect for glen, Steve and Kevin. I have had so many good times in the past three years that I treasure my whole life, especially friendship.
“Well done everyone and thank you for all the love and support. I’m excited for what’s to come.”
Cinnamon joined DECIDE in 2019 following the departure of the guitarist mark english.
English became a member of DECIDE in 2016 after the departure of the longtime guitarist jack owen.
“Blasphemy Overtures” was released in September 2018 via Media of the Century.
