Long-standing drummer Mike Hamilton returns; Jacoby Kingston returns to bass/vocals

New album Nucleus out now via Unique Leader Records

Technical death metal pioneers Deeds Of Flesh unveil a classic line-up, with the return of long-time drummer Mike HamiltonMike‘s drumming style has been a huge staple in shaping the band’s sound and laying the blueprint for the future of technical death metal. 

The band comment: “We want to thank Darren Cesca for all of his hard work on our most recent release, Nucleus. That album would not sound the way it does without his stamp on it. Darren is one of the most professional and skilled death metal drummers out there today and we guarantee you’ll be seeing him continue to push the envelope for the genre and drumming as a whole. We’re very proud to have Darren as a part of the Deeds legacy and wish him all the best and a future of success!”

This news follows the recent announcement that Deeds Of Flesh will return to the stage at next year’s HellFest Open Air in Clisson, France.

The band continue: “Although we wish we could be hitting the stage with our brother Erik Lindmark, we feel going forward it would be best to retain the classic Deeds line-up as much as possible.”

Jacoby Kingston will return to bass and vocal duties as he has done during his entire tenure with DeedsIvan Munguia will make the move from bass over to 2nd guitar, an easy transition given his recent guitar work live and in the studio with Continuum.

Going forward, Deeds of Flesh are:
Jacoby Kingston – Bass/Vocals
Craig Peters – Lead Guitar
Ivan Munguia – Guitar
Michael Hamilton – Drums

Mike Hamilton commented: “I am very excited to return to my rightful home as drummer of Deeds OF Flesh. I thought the opportunity of performing live with Deeds of Flesh would never present itself after the unfortunate passing of our brother Erik. I am honored and stoked to be reunited with my incredibly talented brothers JacobyCraig and Ivan and look forward to performing at Hellfest 2022 as well as writing new material for future releases!!!!!”

Jacoby commented: “Though I am saddened that Erik won’t be with us, I feel honored to regain bass and vocal duties and am excited to be jamming once more! 2022 is going to be an amazing year for the band and we look forward to crushing skulls once again.”

After a 14-year hiatus from playing live shows, Deeds Of Flesh are super excited to get back out there and play for the fans once again at HellFest 2022, so get ready.
