drummer Antoine Baril
has joined Canadian death metallers DEVIANT PROCESS
. The band is currently working on its first full-length album, which will be produced by Antoine Baril
at his Hemisphere Studio
. The pre-production process has already started and the actual recording of the album is scheduled for the spring.
Commented DEVIANT PROCESS
: "We are pleased to announce that Antoine Baril
has joined DEVIANT PROCESS
as our new drummer. We would like to thank Olivier Genest
for his outstanding work in the band and wish him all the best in his future projects."
The seeds for DEVIANT PROCESS
, formerly PSYCHIC PAIN
, were planted in 2008 by JD Villeneuve
(guitars/lead vocals) in Quebec City, Canada. After releasing a self-produced demo, JD
managed to get the attention of PL Beaulieu
(bass), Stéphane Simard
(guitars/backing vocals) and Olivier Genest
(drums), which led to the creation of DEVIANT PROCESS
in 2009. Collectively, the band decided to move away from PSYCHIC PAIN
's symphonic style and focus their energies into creating genuinely brutal and original progressive death metal.
