DEICIDE Release "Thou Begone" Lyric Video

New Studio Album 'IN THE MINDS OF EVIL' Out November 25

Band Available Now For Interviews

Deicide - 2013 promo

 It's Halloween, and metal legends Deicide are embracing the spirit by dropping their "Thou Begone" lyric video on unsuspecting hoards of trick or treaters - and this one's definitely a treat.

"Look up... Look down... Look all around.... Right his wrong! Thou begone!" cackles Deicide frontman Glen Benton about the diabolical "Thou Begone" lyric video. To watch the video, click here:

"Thou Begone" is the second track to be released from the band's upcoming new studio album 'IN THE MINDS OF EVIL', which will hit stores November 25 in North America via Century Media Records and is the eleventh studio recording of an illustrious career spanning more than 25 years. Produced by Jason Suecoff [ALL THAT REMAINS, TRIVIUM, DEATH ANGEL, BATTLECROSS], the album features cover art taken from Australian artist Simon Cowell's painting "Power Of The Mind."

The band previously released the title track from 'IN THE MINDS OF EVIL', which can be listed to here:

Red Fang's 'Whales and Leeches' has brought the band to new heights of success debuting at #66 on the Billboard 200. Now, the band are revealing a bonus track from the record on the Relapse Records YouTube page. Listen HERE.

The raging new album dropped earlier this month and the band are preparing for the second leg of their US tour with The Shrine, Indian Handcrafts, Cancer Bats, and Radkey. But when it comes to Red Fang, everyone wants to know when the next insane music video is coming out. You'll be relieved to know that the band are working once more with Whitey McConnaughy, the mastermind behind the "Prehistoric Dog," "Wires," and "Hank is Dead" videos. Shooting begins soon but the band needs your help! The band are looking for video extras to play beer zombies in the Portland, OR area this Tuesday November 5th. Get more info HERE.
