Death metal band from Tampa, Florida (USA).

Formed in 1987 by drummer Steve Asheim and guitarist brothers Eric and Brian Hoffman as "Carnage", then hiring bassist/vocalist Glen Benton and becoming "Amon". They would later change the band name to Deicide in 1989. The band rose to mainstream success in 1992 with their second album Legion, and is credited as the second best-selling death metal band of the Soundscan Era, after Cannibal Corpse. Deicide is known for their hateful and blasphemous lyrics that have resulted in bans, lawsuits and criticism from religious groups and the public.

The Hoffman brothers left the band in 2004 and reformed the predecessor band Amon (18).
