The brainchild of Danny Alessandro (guitars/vocals) and John Massey (guitars/vocals), Toronto death metal duo DEITYhas been a long time coming. Inspired by Suffocation, Emperor, Death, Slayer and Immortal and describing their music as ‘relentless, powerful, intriguing, honest and revitalizing’, DEITY has produced a truly special debut self-titled album due out June 2, 2017.
“We formed about 15 years ago…Myself and John have always been the core of Deity. We had both been working on other projects till we felt the need to finally go in and finish this album about 3 years ago. We’ve known each other for about 20 years. We got tired of working on metal that wasn’t true to us. This is an album we’ve always wanted to hear!” comments Danny Alessandro.
The self-titled debut features eight brutal assaults that include session drums done by Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy) plus session bass by Flo Ravet (ex-Nephelium) along with the album being mixed and mastered by Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Agonist) and produced by Danny Alessandro and Joey Virgilio.
Teaming up with NoCleanSinging.com, the duo premieres their first single "Sacrificium".
""Sacrificium" is one of those songs when it kicks in you just want to run into the mosh pit. From the first drop you can hear the intensity of the vocals, the technical yet melodic riffing, and the hard hitting drums. We have a very Slayeresque chaotic duel guitar solo that we pay homage to Jeff Hanneman as well. We kept the arrangements and transitions more true to old school death metal. Lyrically Sacrificium is about people treating you like shit, trying to belittle you because they are better known, and the kind of people who wouldn’t have the guts to confront you face-to-face." comments John Massey .

With the completion of DEITY's debut self-titled album, the extreme duo, Danny and John are looking forward to taking their sound to live stages in Toronto, Montreal and beyond. Watch this pair, because DEITY are a band that deserve to break out of the studio into the live arena!
