Deicide is an American death metal band formed in 1987. Their first two albums, Deicide and Legion, are ranked second and third place in best-selling death metal albums of the SoundScan era. As Amon (1987-1989)

Deicide was formed in Tampa, Florida July 21, 1987, after guitarist Brian Hoffman called Glen Benton, replying to an advertisement the latter had placed in a local music magazine. They are influenced by bands such as Destruction, Sodom, Venom, Bathory, Possessed, Death and Slayer. Within days the band, consisting of Benton (bass/vocals), Hoffman, Hoffman's brother Eric (guitars) and Steve Asheim (drums), had been named Amon after the Egyptian deity. Within a month, Amon had recorded crude Feasting the Beast 8-track demo in Benton's garage and had started playing the occasional gig in the Tampa area. In 1989, Amon recorded their second demo, Sacrificial, at Morrisound with producer Scott Burns.

DEICIDE Legion

siLLy puPPy
I’ve always considered DEICIDE to be a hybrid of the Morbid Angel and Slayer sounds. On the Morbid Angel side we get the death growls, the incessant brutal riffing, drum abuse and those wild loose electric wire guitar solos that whiz out of nowhere, freak out for a short burst and then disappear while on the Slayer side we get the hellish imagery, Satanic worshipping and thrashy guitar and bass delivery. On their second release LEGION, the band tackled a little technical influence from fellow Floridians Death which makes LEGION a somewhat more complex listen than the debut.

While a new technical edge is clearly heard on this brutal rampaging set of highly caffeinated eight tracks, this is clearly rooted in old school death metal much like the debut only adding some extra saucy guitar, bass and spazzed out drum rolls. The songs structures are very typical of the day all doctored up with a possible Suffocation influenced increase in brutality that is guaranteed to leave the listener’s head properly banged and perhaps aching. The addition of creepy sound effects and even backward messages adds to the overall extreme and darkened feel to the album which lasts a mere 29 minutes and 1 second and then without missing a beat ends on the same spastic note as it continues throughout the short but sweet wild ride.

I’ve never really been a huge DEICIDE fan because i wanted them to continue what they started on LEGION and continue down a technical path but this was a one stop and retreat type of album and they would continue on with their more run-of-the-mill death metal sound. For me this is the best of the lot and a classic in the death metal world. So influential is this one that the track “Trifixion” alone has spawned not one but five bands that use it as their name. The album cover was quite different for the day as well conjuring up strange occult symbolism rather than the typical blood and gore of the era. While the relentless drive of the album sounds pretty standard upon first listen, i find the subtleties of the instruments whizzing around at a million miles per second are actually quite interesting and make this a standout in their disco. Sadly tech death would not be their thing and they would settle into their comfort zone.

Spinal Tap coined the phrase "none more black". Well, there were none more black and evil than this when it ripped into the metal public's consciousness back in 1990.

This album was no groundbreaker musically, nor was it particularly original in the lyrical department. However, as far as malevolence, conviction of execution, and pure Satanic blasphemy, this was unprecedented. The name of the band itself means "the killing of God", and its hard to imagine any deity standing up to the aural onslaught inflicted here. Bass player and vocalist Glen Benton, the driving force behind the band, even declares himself ruler of the world on the title track.

While many a metal band has dabbled in Satanism and the occult to shock and impress, this band was the real thing. Benton, a lifelong Satanist, went as far as branding his forehead with an inverted cross to "drive kindness" from his soul. The cover artwork, and samples on the album further reinforce the Satanic majesty of this heretical creation. Benton was also made an honorary member of the Church Of Satan, while the populist face of Satanism in music, Marilyn Manson, had to pay for his membership!

The subject matter for the album mainly involved praising Satan and killing Christ, but there are also homages to two demagogues of death and destruction, Charles Manson and Jim Jones. Manson is referred to as a "Lunatic of God's creation", and Jones' dubious achievements are celebrated in the song "Carnage In The Temple Of The Damned".

The production is often criticised, as the sound lacks bottom end. Benton's bass is almost unidentifiable and the vocals are less guttural than they could be. However, the lack of bottom end stops the riffs from dissolving into unidentifiable sludge, and allows good definition of the whirlwind riffs and the crazed, manic solos. Also, you can understand almost every word Benton spits forth, something often neglected by death metal bands, but used to excellent effect here. "Dead By Dawn" is one of the outstanding tracks featured here. Solos Slayer would be proud of, a jack hammering double kick drum attack, some nice double tracked vocals featuring demonic screams, frenetic blast beats, and a simple shoutalong chorus are a recipe for pure death metal blasphemy.

This album is a short, yet unrelenting, blast through Satanic death metal ferocity. Many thought Deicide would be a short lived gimmick band. Yeah, right.

DEICIDE In the Minds of Evil

Album · 2013 · Death Metal

"In the Minds of Evil" is the 11th full-length studio album by US, Florida based death metal act Deicide. The album was released through Century Media Records in November 2013. It´s the first Deicide release to feature guitarist Kevin Quirion (Council of the Fallen, Order of Ennead, Shadow Society) as a permanent member of the lineup, even though he has played live with the band on several occasions.

On "In the Minds of Evil", Deicide more or less sounds like...well Deicide. The skillful playing (drummer Steve Asheim as always needs a special mention for his precision and speed), the relatively short album length (this time around 36:50 minutes long), the anti-Christian lyrics and Glen Bentons´s characteristic barking growls in front (one-dimensionally brutal and emotionless, like they´ve been on so many releases). In keeping with the other albums they´ve released since the Hoffman brothers got fired, the guitar solos feature a more melodic sensibility than the chromatic shredding solos on the albums where the Hoffman brothers handled the guitar work. The solos are simply more varied these days, and they provide Deicide´s sound with an extra spice.

So all the characteristics that most Deicide albums feature are present and accounted for. The music on the album are generally on the heavier side of the band´s output, although they still know how to blast away when that is called for. The sound production is very well sounding and powerful. It´s in the clearer end of the death metal sound production spectrum but not too clean and polished.

It´s not like they´ve developed their sound much though and it´s not an album that´ll bring back those listeners who began to drop out of the fanclub after being treated to one mediocre album after another in the late 90s/early 00s. It´s still an enjoyable and professional death metal release, that is very powerful and raw when it´s best, and there are a few tracks that stick after it´s finished, but overall "In the Minds of Evil" is not really an album that stick out in the band´s discography. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

Clocking in at 33:33 this album packs a punch. I've always considered DEICIDE a 2nd tier death metal act because throughout their long career they have been mostly a one trick pony and if anything bores me more in music it's stagnation and generic offerings. However, despite not reinventing the world of death metal DEICIDE's first two albums are quite exciting rides. Without a doubt this is a classic that is ferociously tight, shockingly evil and obviously influential.

Taking their cues from Slayer as well as the emerging black metal scene from Norway, they upped the aggressive and hostile playing on the musical side of the equation with a faster and more brutal approach than the thrash bands they were emerging from. On the lyrical side they were upping the shock value by incorporating the blatant anti-Christian and Satanic values which at the time got them banned, sued and persecuted. Other themes are about Charles Manson, Jim Jones and the plot of the horror film “The Evil Dead.” Other than the tracks “Deicide” and “Mephistopheles,” the rest of the tracks are re-recorded versions of their demo album SACRIFICIAL that they recorded under the name Amon. Devilishly delicious debut.

Although recent Deicide observations have traditionally been met with mixed reception, 2013's In the Minds of Evil seems to be an exception to that rule - and with good reason. The band's first album with guitarist Kevin Quirion in the fold (and eleventh overall) shows these US death metal legends in particularly good shape, and while I thought that 2011's To Hell With God was pretty damn enjoyable, In the Minds of Evil is a noticeable step up.

Deicide's fast-paced, blasphemous, and semi-technical approach to death metal is fully intact on In the Minds of Evil, but as has been the case on the band's last few records, melodic guitar leads play a big role in the compositions. I even notice a few melodic-sounding choruses thrown into the mix this time around (just listen to the darkly anthemic title track!), though it is worth pointing out that this is not in any way “melodic death metal” - In the Minds of Evil still sounds like ominous, fast, and evil old school death metal, but its frequent borrowings from traditional metal lead guitar technique add a unique twist to Deicide's music.

At the end of the day, In the Minds of Evil is not a revolution for neither Deicide nor death metal in general, but when the playing is this tight, the production is this powerful, and the compositions are this memorable without sacrificing an ounce of brutality, it's clear that we have a winner on our hands. Folks that have given up on this band over a decade ago may want to take the time to investigate them again - In the Minds of Evil proves that Deicide can still bludgeon listeners with the power of a thousand inverted crosses!
