Steven Summers of A Dying Faith and
formerly of When Life Has Ceased has joined
Deviant as the new drummer. Steven started playing with us in late October, he learned and
improved all of the material we already had written and we immediately started to finish up
the stuff we had been working on as well as develop a few new tunes. The attitude and energy
that Steven brings to the band is amazing and we could not be happier that he decided to join
Because of the drummer transition, we got into the studio a bit later than expected. But on
Dec 10th of 2004 Deviant entered 379 productions
studio in Dallas, TX with producer / engineer D. Braxton Henry of
Blood Ties. We recorded on nights and weekends from
Dec 10th through Dec 28th laying down the tracks for "Burn me Alive" and spent the better part
of January working on the mix and other details of the recording. It was a awesome experience
working with Braxton, he is a truly talented producer that really pulled the best out of Deviant.
We are getting the new disc mastered by Brad Blackwood @
Euphonics Masters in Memphis, TN and we are really looking
forward to getting the finished product back so we can release the album as soon as possible.
We are still working on the album artwork and other details so it will still be a several weeks
before "Burn Me Alive" will be released.
In the meantime check out the new tracks posted on the downloads page and be sure to check the
shows page for when Deviant will be in your town!!!!!
While the writing is going well with our next
CD we are having to postpone it a little while we save up some cash to get a quality
recording. This will be our first recording with newcomer Mike Rizzo on guitar! Be prepared
for a new release by spring!!!
A new disc is not the only thing happening for Deviant in the upcoming
year. Among many things we will be making a return trip to the Milwaukee Metal Festival in July,
hooking up with proper booking/management through
& we are presently working on getting a new website up and running.
Deviant is going to be playing allot of shows over the next couple of months but what better way to start off
the new year than by playing
97.1 The Eagle's,
"The Local show" on January 25th @ Tree's!!!
The show is going
to feature a live interview with the band before the show & only cost $1.97 cover & $1.00 beers & wells
night long. Be sure to bring your ass out to this show & support Deviant & Live Texas Metal here in
Don't forget to e-mail Robert and let him know that you want to
hear Deviant on the airwaves of North Texas.
Deviant is gearing up for another record due out by early 2004. No title for the record has
been locked in yet but a couple of the new tracks are "Demon Within" and "The
Human Condition" (Candid). The
is going well with several still untitled cuts in the works. Plans have already been made to
record at Nomad Studios with producer Gary Long who has worked with King Diamond, Mercyful Fate
& most of the top bands in the Dallas area. We were planning on slowing down on the shows to
concentrate on the new disc but it seems that there is a growing demand to see Deviant live.
What the promoters and people want is what they get so we are steadily playing
with more shows coming in all the time. So be sure to check out the
shows page for when Deviant
will be at a venue near you.

Deviant.com will now be run by 2 people; Myself and Amy, due to me not having enough time. Hopefully having 2 will make this site updated faster and look much better. Look for some major changes.
