DEICIDE Cancels MILWAUKEE METALFEST Appearance

The organizers of the Milwaukee Metalfest XIX, which is set to take place May 11-12 at the Waukesha Expo Center in Waukesha, Wisconsin, have issued the following update:

"Due to legal issues, Glenn Benton has been forced to cancel DEICIDE's appearance at Milwaukee Metal Fest XIX. We're extremely disappointed to have to report such foul news one week from the show date! We do, however, wish Glenn the best of luck and hope to see DEICIDE again soon."

DEICIDE's latest CD, "The Stench of Redemption" was released in August via Earache Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Scars of the Crucifix" was recorded at Morrisound in Tampa, Florida and marks the first recording with the new DEICIDE lineup following the departure of the Hoffman brothers.

DEICIDE released a DVD, "Doomsday L.A.", on February 6, 2007 via Earache. The set, which was filmed using multiple cameras on November 10, 2006 at the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles, features the group's new lineup of Glen Benton (bass, vocals), Steve Asheim (drums), Jack Owen (guitar; ex-CANNIBAL CORPSE) and Ralph Santolla (ex-DEATH, ICED EARTH). The bonus material incorporates exclusive interviews and promo videos, including the recent "Homage for Satan" clip.
