The Sludgelord Premieres Deity’s Self-Titled Debut Album!

The brainchild of Danny Alessandro (guitars/vocals) and John Massey (guitars/vocals), Toronto death metal duo DEITY has been a long time coming. Friends for the last twenty years, the duo formed fifteen years ago and have always been the core of the band. Both have been working on other projects, but always felt the need to finally go in studio and finish an album. Tired of working on metal that wasn’t true to them, the two completed a release that they’ve always wanted to hear and are now ready to officially unleash it to the masses on June 2nd.

Teaming up with TheSludgelord, the duo premieres the full stream for the debut that features eight brutal assaults with session drums done by Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy) and session bass by Flo Ravet (ex-Nephelium). Mixing and mastering for the album was done by Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Agonist) and produced by Danny Alessandro with Joey Virgilio.

“This album has been a long time in the making and we are very proud of what we’ve created. From start to finish we want to take the listener on a journey of different emotions and feeling. As fans of metal we wanted to create something the listener could play over several times without losing interest. Something with a timeless feeling, and we feel like we’ve achieved this. Chaotic, aggressive and melodic are the best words to describe this self titled release.  We hope the metal community digs the album cheers!!!” comments John Massey.

“You see, “Sacrificium” is so blindingly fast and so technically jaw-dropping that attempting to provide even a rough linguistic map of its course is a fool’s errand. It’s a truly breathtaking rocket ride, a non-stop jolt of adrenaline, so blazing in its exuberance that trying to nail it down with words seems unjust, even if that could be done.” – No Clean Singing

“Toronto’s Deity deliver chaotic, aggressive and masterful self titled debut album.” – The Sludgelord
“High-intensity riffing, bladder-loosening drumming & hyper-aggressive vocals, Deity is one constant, nerve shredding assault.” – Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life

“This is a great death metal album, that’s all all the stuff you look for into that genre…If you are a fan of Death, Emperor or Suffocation you have to check it out. Great job from the Toronto duo, of Deity, can’t wait to hear what’s next” – Re Zine
