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,[1] and is credited as the second best-selling death metal band of the Soundscan Era, after Cannibal Corpse.

Deicide is known for their lyrics, which cover topics such as Satanism, anti-Christianity and blasphemy. Their lyrics have resulted in bans, lawsuits and criticism from religious groups and the public.

Glen Benton - Vocals & Bass (1989-present)
Steve Asheim - Drums (1989-present)
Kevin Quirion - Guitars (2008-2009, 2009-2010, 2011-present)
Chris Cannella - Guitars (2019-present)

Original line up consisted of Glen Benton & Steve Asheim with Eric Hoffman & Brian Hoffman on guitars. The Hoffman brothers left the band and reformed the predecessor band Amon (18).

Everyone should have at least the first two albums in their collections. Deicide were a genuinely awe inspiring band both visually and musically in the early 90's, providing yet another unique Floridian interpretation of DM. For those put off by current prices on here, Hammerheart are apparently preparing releases of the first 5 or 6 albums on LP and CD for 2021.

Century Media Records

Death Metal icons Deicide announce the release of their 12th studio album, “Overtures Of Blasphemy”, their first album after 2013’s critically acclaimed “In The Minds Of Evil”.

“Overtures Of Blasphemy” was produced by Jason Suecof (The Black Dahlia Murder, Trivium) at Audio Hammer Studios and comes with a brilliant artwork by Zbigniew Bielak (Watain, Ghost, Paradise Lost).
The album will be released through Century Media Records worldwide on September 14th, 2018.

Benton states: "This album came together over time, meaning we didn't want to rush it. A few people might remember an interview where Steve Asheim (original member, drummer/songwriter) said 'the material is done, but it's just not there yet.' Well, that was the jumping off point of when this album truly started taking shape and the songs became what they are now...complete, compact and effective. As the band pushed forward, so did the writing process and a few other processes which made the record and the band stronger. The result is Overtures Of Blasphemy, perhaps the group’s strongest release to date. Jason Suecoff lended his considerable talents and attention to detail in making the tracking of the songs as great as they can be and the final mix as sonically brutal, yet as listenable as possible. An arduous process, but one well worth the time and effort."

Cover artist Zbigniew Bielak comments on his artwork for “Overtures Of Blasphemy”: “If you experienced the death metal boom of the early 90s first hand, you know why Deicide's flaming logo was the ultimate threat in the sanity department. Working with Glen Benton was a great honor and a throwback to the time, when death metal aesthetics were at their vilest. Satan Spawn the Caco Deamon is alive and well.”

Deicide play everyone of their songs with upmost conviction.Tight & with the fast clever groove that is their trademark that inspired other bands such as Sinister etc.

I'm surprised there are no comments for this pioneering band. The first four albums are death metal classics and should belong in the collection of every fan of extreme metal.
