Black Hole Deity is an all-new supernatural and sci-fi-themed death metal band formed by Cam Pinkerton and Chris White, co-founders of Huntsville, Alabama, death metal titans Chaos Inception. Cam recruited Alec Cordero from Los Angeles, CA, death metal bands Cruelty Exalted and Calcemia to handle lead guitar duties and finally got none other than Mike Heller of Malignancy, Fear Factory, and Raven to handle the drum duties.
They are here to unleash their debut single entitled “Lair of Xenolich”, which displays old-school yet forward-thinking riffage inspired by Formulas-era Morbid Angel, Despise the Sun-era Suffocation, early Deeds of Flesh, and much more. On top of Mike Heller's relentless drumming and Chris White's flesh-searing vocals, Alec Cordero's 80's shred/fusion jazz style solo adds a refreshing twist to contrast the song's otherwise dark and brutal atmosphere.
With the release of this single, they are wasting no time in preparing to record a 5-song EP to be released through Lavadome Productions in early 2020. The new material is expected to have even more of a progressive flair while still being dark and brutal. So if you're a fan of the likes of Nocturnus, Morbid Angel, Deeds of Flesh, Aeon, Azarath and guitar soloing in the style of Paul Gilbert, Allan Holdsworth, Tony MacAlpine, Marty Friedman, Jason Becker, Frank Gambale, Yngwie Malmsteen, and more, then you're in for a dimension-altering listening experience.
