DEEDS OF FLESH Announces New Lineup

California extreme metallers DEEDS OF FLESH have parted ways with guitarist Sean Southern due to "personal reasons" and have replaced him with Craig Peters (ARKAIK).

Commented the band: "Craig is one of the top lead guitarist in the metal scene today in our opinion and has already been contributing in the writing process for [the ninth DEEDS OF FLESH album] 'Portal To Canaan'. He also will add another element by doing back-up vocals. We also added vocalist and fifth member, Corey Athos (FLESH CONSUMED) to the lineup and will now be bringing a three-person vocal assault to our sound adding a ton of range. Corey will be doing majority of the vocals but Craig and Erik will be much involved. We had Corey replace the original vocals on a couple songs off 'Of What's To Come' as well as a couple older tracks and they were perfect. We are all very excited to be working together and are anxious to get into the studio this summer to start recording 'Portals To Canaan', proceeded by DEEDS getting back out on the road."

DEEDS OF FLESH is:

Erik Lindmark - Guitar/Vocals
Michael Hamilton - Drums
Erlened Caspersen - Bass
Craig Peters - Lead Guitar/Vocals
Corey Athos - Vocals

"Portal to Canaan" will feature "amazing artwork and numerous conceptual pieces" by Raymond Swanland.

DEEDS OF FLESH's last CD, "Of What's to Come", came out in November 2008 via Unique Leader. The label previously described the follow-up to 2005's "Crown Of Souls" as "nothing short of a masterpiece, combining the usual DEEDS OF FLESH sound with many added new elements, twisted and memorable guitar riffs and lead work, blistering drums, powerful vocals and mind-blowing bass lines."
