According to Earache Records, veteran guitarist Ralph Santolla has rejoined DEICIDE and is currently hard at work recording his guitar parts for DEICIDE's 2008 release, "Till Death Do Us Part", at Morrisound Studios in Florida.

DEICIDE had previously parted ways with Ralph Santolla back in May of this year. Over the course of the following months, he would spend the summer touring with OBITUARY and pushing his talent as far as it could go. When he was asked to rejoin DEICIDE in time for the recording of "Till Death Do Us Part", Santolla came back to the fold as a man possessed and he had come back, literally better than ever before.

While there will inevitably be naysayers who doubt the decision, DEICIDE drummer Steve Asheim insists that Ralph Santolla's return will only strengthen the maniacal musical landscape that DEICIDE is known for. "Ralph is really reaching towards the very depths of his abilities to come up with something completely fresh and challenging," he said.

Even those outside of the band have given nothing but positive feedback on Ralph Santolla's progress during the recording sessions. "Jim Morris came and told me that Ralph has been coming up with some of the greatest metal riffs and licks that he's ever heard;" said Asheim. "Ralph's really pushing his abilities to the limit, coming up with things that he's never been able to do before."
