DEICIDE picture
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.

Kev Rowland
Formed in 1989, Deicide are responsible for shaping death metal at every level. When I first came across them I really wasn’t sure what to think of them, as I felt that metal was being taken into an area I personally wasn’t interested in, and slammed their 1997 album ‘Serpents of the Light’. But, over the years my musical tastes have broadened considerably, and in my fifties I now listen to music that may would consider too extreme for their tastes. Over the last decade I have revisited Deicide, and have discovered that I was a little hasty some 20 years ago, and that the band have consistently produced very good albums indeed. Glen Benton is still there of course, as is drummer Steve Asheim, as they have been ever since they formed Amon all those years ago. Guitarist Kevin Quirion has been joined by newcomer Mark English, and the band have yet again produced an album which is a solid example of the genre.

Interestingly, Benton has returned to songwriting, something that hasn’t happened since 1992’s ‘Legion’, with opening track “One with Satan,” “Compliments of Christ,” and “Consumed by Hatred,” the rest of the guys fleshed out the remaining nine tracks. “When we started the writing process,” says Benton, “I said to the guys, ‘This record doesn’t have to be boring, going-nowhere grind-all-the-time death metal. Let’s really focus on the quality of the songs, I wanted them to write tasty licks and catchy hooks this time. And let the vocals give it its definition.” No-one could ever imagine that this was anything but Deicide, Benton makes sure of that, but this is an album that actually contains a great deal of variety and styles. They never really slow it down of course, but there are times when it is more power metal than death, and these changes allow the music to breath and give the listener the opportunity to recover from the attack. If ever an album was meant to be played at 11 then this was it, and Asheim shows that he has lost none of his power and attack over the last 30 years, still pummelling the skins like an album. This may not make them any new fans, but all those who already enjoy Deicide will find that this album is one of their most disparate for a while, and all the better for it.



DEICIDE Once Upon the Cross

UMUR
"Once Upon the Cross" is the 3rd full-length studio album by US, Florida based death metal act Deicide. The album was released through Roadrunner Records in April 1995. Deicide is one of the originators of the Florida death metal scene and enjoyed great success with their first two albums "Deicide (1990)" and "Legion (1992)", which are both widely considered classic death metal releases from the heyday of the death metal scene. By 1995 things had already changed a lot though and death metal as a music scene was popularity wise in decline. A lot of death metal acts lost their recording contracts or disbanded around this time, but Deicide stayed true to their style and soldiered on.

Which is why it should come as no surprise that the music on "Once Upon the Cross" pretty much continues the brutal old school US death metal style of it´s two predecessors. The anti-Christian/blasphemous lyrics are in place, which is abundantly clear when reading song titles like "Christ Denied", "When Satan Rules His World", and "Kill the Christian", the skillfull execution of the music is also present and accounted for, and the powerful Morrissound production by Scott Burns is also there, so as mentioned there are no surprises on "Once Upon the Cross".

So it can be argued that Deicide haven´t developed much and that "Once Upon the Cross" isn´t their most necessary release, but while there is some truth to that, the 9 track, 28:11 minutes long album is overall of such high quality that all is more or less forgiven. There are tons of artists out there who make the same album over and over again, and some artists can get away with it either for a while, or for the duration of their career, and on "Once Upon the Cross", Deicide still fell under the first catagory (it´s up for discussion if they fall under the latter today). They don´t necessarily sound as fresh or innovative as they did on their first two releases, but they still deliver their music with fierce conviction and a burning brutal passion.

Deicide is very well playing and perform both really fast parts and heavier ditto to perfection. Drummer Steve Asheim is technically skilled and changes pace with ease, the Hoffman brothers churn out one fast brutal riff and screaming solo after another, and vocalist/bassist Glen Benton delivers solid bass playing and distinct sounding and mostly intelligible deep growling vocals. His use of higher pitched screams is relatively limited on "Once Upon the Cross".

Upon conclusion "Once Upon the Cross" is a very strong death metal release by one of the most distinct sounding acts in the genre. High level musicianship, a raw and powerful sounding production, and songwriting that may not be as memorable and catchy as on the first two releases, but still is relatively memorable and way above standard for the genre. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

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.

"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.
