DEICIDE Split With Guitarist CHRIS CANNELLA, Announce Replacement

Deicide have added a new guitarist to their fold.

DEICIDE have announced guitarist Taylor Nordberg (THE ABSENCE, INHUMAN CONDITION) as the replacement for Chris Cannella who has departed the group after three years.

Earlier today (Wednesday, January 19), DEICIDE frontman Glen Benton said in a statement: “We are pleased to announce and welcome Taylor Nordberg to the DEICIDE family! An amazing and accomplished guitarist who takes our sound to the next level and brings a profound level of professionalism that completes and compliments the DEICIDE machine!”

Cannella said in a separate statement: ” Yes, it is true. I am no longer in DEICIDE. There is no drama and we all kept it quiet as to not lead into drama or speculation.

“I have all the love and respect for Glen, Steve and Kevin. I had so many great times over the last three years I cherish for a lifetime, especially the friendship.

“Cheers to all and thanks for all the love and support. I’m excited for what’s to come.”

DEICIDE’s latest album, “Overtures Of Blasphemy”, was released in September 2018 via Century Media.
