DEEDS OF FLESH release ‘Ethereal Ancestors’ with Cannibal Corpse’s George ‘Corpsegrinder’ Fisher
DEEDS OF FLESH return after a seven year hiatus with their 9th studio album Nucleus, set for release via Unique Leader Records on 11th December 2020 (Vinyl release 15th January 2021). DEEDS OF FLESH have now released their third single ‘Ethereal Ancestors’ from forthcoming album, Nucleus, with guest vocals provided by George ‘Corpsegrinder’ Fisher of Cannibal Corpse.

The band comment: “‘Nucleus’ is a great representation of the new album as a whole. It has a technical instrumental intro to grab the listener before the vocals kick in building up to the faster pacing in the song. It’s quite dynamic throughout as well as having space and grooves for John Gallagher’s (Dying Fetus) vocals to drop in. At other times, we incorporated things like layered guitars, bass tapping and polyrhythmic ideas on the drums. The song ends with a huge chord-based half-time feel before closing with an all-out blast and killer guest guitar solo by Matt Sotelo (Decrepit Birth).
“The concept behind ‘Nucleus’ is a storyline that introduces the Overseers and the Elders intervening and aiding the last of humanity in the final battle between man and an invading alien horde.”

Guitarist Craig Peters commented:
“After we started the writing process for Nucleus about seven 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 commented:
“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.“
