Derek Boyer is back in Decrepit Birth

Don't even try to be as metal as him, it'll only end in disappointment. Trust me, I know

Oooooh, now this is exciting. Over the years, bassist extraordinaire Derek Boyer has accumulated what could arguably be the best resume ever. He's been involved with bands like Criminal Element, Vital Remains, Dying Fetus, and most notably Suffocation, but after an almost decade-long absence, he's decided to rejoin another sick band, one Decrepit Birth. Boyer laid down the bass tracks for DB's first album And Time Begins, so in a way they're getting an original member back, which is always good news. And lucky for us, this doesn't mean that Suffocation are now out of a bassist, because he will be pulling double duty as a full-time member of both bands. Our hats are off to you Derek, those are two mighty impressive bands to juggle, but I'm confident he can pull it off; he's certainly talented enough. In their respective statements, both Boyer and the band expressed their excitement over the matter, so with all this positivity flying around something great is bound to happen. Keep a weather eye on the horizon folks, big things are going to be happening soon, mark my words. In the meantime, if you don't know what you've been missing, here's the title track from And Time Begins to give you a taste of Boyer-era Decrepit Birth.


If you're as excited as I am (and why wouldn't you be), leave your thoughts below, and stay tuned 'cause there's more to come.
