Deviant Process / Bio

Deviant Process, formerly Psychic Pain, was founded in 2008 by JD Villeneuve (guitars/lead vocals) in Quebec City, Canada. After having released his self-produced demo, JD managed to get the attention of PL Beaulieu (bass), Stéphane Simard (guitars/back vocal) and Olivier Genest (drums), which led to the creation of Deviant Process in 2009. Collectively, the band decided to move away from Psychic Pain's symphonic style and focus their energies into creating genuinely brutal and original progressive death metal.

The band released its first EP entitled “Narcissistic Rage” (currently out of print) in the summer of 2011. This EP contains two songs (“Persecution” and “Narcissistic Rage”), and was recorded, mixed and mastered by Antoine Baril (Symbolic Death Tribute, ex-Augury, ex-Mag Project).

After having had the chance of sharing the stage with death metal icons such as Cryptopsy, Augury and Revocation, Deviant Process invited Antoine Baril to join the band as its new drummer in an attempt to infuse its material with more groove and eclecticism.

Deviant Process is currently working on its first full-length album which will include totally revamped versions of the songs “Persecution” and “Narcissistic Rage”. The album will be produced by Antoine Baril at his personal studio (Hemisphere Studio). The pre-production process has already started and the actual recording of the album will begin in the spring of 2013. Stay tuned!
