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 In the Minds of Evil

Album · 2013 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"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.

J-Man
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!

Warthur
Jack Owen of Cannibal Corpse and Ralph Santolla of Iced Earth aren't exactly two guys I'd expect to find in the same lineup, but with founder members departing Deicide needed fresh blood and I have to say that their new guitarists more than pass muster. Glen Benton wisely lets the new lads add their personal touch to their performances, which results in a mixture of sick death metal playing and more traditional heavy metal solos which reinvigorates and refreshes the Deicide sound. Thematically, of course, it's business as usual (Glen Benton has beef with Christianity - who'd have guessed?), but the new spin the changed lineup gives to the classic Deicide approach means there's life in the old warhorse yet.

A return to form! A return to form!

Yes, this was a rather odd moment for these guys. After doing something very different with their past 2 albums, this album sounds like these guys in 90's, but with a modern influence. One of the most biggest noticeable changes is the clearer sound of the production, giving the album a slightly more modern sound. But, because this album is more of a return to form, the sound does sound rather interesting, with the mix of classic death metal riffing with some cleaner production. The music on the album is just as good as always, with the guys really focusing on different aspects of the sound, with a lot of fast moments, heavy moments and rather odd sounding riffs.

One of the biggest positives on this album is Glen's vocals. I did worry about his vocals, especially on “Till Death Do Us Part” where his vocals seemed very strained. But on this album, his voice seems better than ever. His vocals in the past few years did get a bit of criticism, but just like Glen, he tried his best to piss the critics off.

Sadly, this album does bare some criticisms from me. Usually Glen's lyrics really make me agree with him on some rather odd level, usually because he is a brilliant lyricist, but on this album he seems to repeat a lot of his blasphemies. The album does have a very similar sound throughout, which does get a bit monotonous at times.

This is also the last album to feature guitarist Ralph Santolla, who if I'm honest pretty much got me into the band. Hopefully replacement Kevin Quirion will be able to match Ralph's incredible ability.

The opening title track pretty much is a mixture of these older and newer styles these guys have made. Some amazing vocals from Glen too.

“Save Your” (get the pun in the title) is one of the most interesting moments on the album. Some rather odd riffs that you wouldn't expect to hear on a Deicide song can be heard. This may be due to this being one of Jack Owen's compositions.

“Conviction”, one of Jack Owen's compositions has one of the best riffs on the album. There is also a pretty funny music video for this album which I also recommend giving a watch. This song also has the best lyrics on the album.

The album closer “How Can You Call Yourself A God” is one of the album's most epic moments. With some epic riffs and spellbinding guitar solo's from Ralph Santolla.

In conclusion, this is pretty great. I have to admit, this wouldn't be my favourite Deicide album, but this album does pack quite a punch. Fans of their earlier material would love this album, but because I'm more of a fan of their latest material, I'm slightly on the fence with it. But, don't listen to me, listen to it for yourself, and revel in it's evil glory.

7.9/10
