Deicide’s New Guitarist Explains How He Landed The Gig, Says There’s “Killer” New Material In The Works

Guitarist Taylor Nordberg (ABSENCE, INHUMAN CONDITION), who recently joined Florida death metal veterans DECIDEexplained how he landed the gig in a new interview with “The Zach Moonshine Show”. He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “In 2019, my group ABSENCE shot with DECIDE in the States and we got to know the guys and we got along really well. And I actually discovered that glen [Benton, DEICIDE frontman] lives, like, two blocks away Jeremiah [Kling, THE ABSENCE drummer] and me, where we live. So Jeremiah and glen have become good friends and ride their bikes all the time. It’s a funny little thing to think about. But to make it short, [previous DEICIDE guitarist] Chris [Cannella]I believe he is the head of A&R at Dean Guitars so he’s focusing on that for now. I heard they needed a guitarist, so I learned a few songs, made a few videos and glen saw them and liked what he saw. So we had a few practices, and bang bang boom, here we are.”

He was asked if he had worked on new material with DECIDE or if he just concentrated on recording the old songs, taylor said, “Well, when they first asked me to start learning songs, they said, ‘Start learning [the] ‘Legion’ [album]because this year is the 30th anniversary of ‘Legion’. So later in the year, we’re going to play it from start to finish live. So that’s been the main focus for the last two weeks – just hammering those ‘Legion’ songs, which has been a pleasure to delve into these tracks and songwriting… Right now we are focusing on the ‘Legion’ stuff and then obviously I’m just trying to learn a whole set. Otherwise, there are new songs that we have been working on. As I said, we only focus on the ‘Legion’ stuff at the moment, but there’s definitely a ton of killer new material on the way. I don’t know what the schedule is – when we’ll be recording or something – but there’s new music out there, and it’s been killer so far.”

Cinnamon left amicably DECIDE last month after a three-year run.

When bent over first announced Nordbergis added to DECIDEhe said in a statement: “We are pleased to announce and welcome Taylor Nordberg to the DECIDE family! An incredible and accomplished guitarist who takes our sound to the next level and brings a deep level of professionalism that complements and compliments the DECIDE machine!”

Cinnamon said in a separate statement, “Yes, it’s true. I’m no longer in DECIDE. There is no drama and we have all kept silent so as not to lead to drama or speculation.

“I have all the love and respect for glen, Steve and Kevin. I have had so many good times in the past three years that I treasure my whole life, especially friendship.

“Well done everyone and thank you for all the love and support. I’m excited for what’s to come.”

Cinnamon joined DECIDE in 2019 following the departure of the guitarist mark english.
