Known the world over as one of the founding fathers of death metal, Deicide remains one of the most influential and controversial metal bands to grace the genre to this very day. With a relentlessly brutal sound and uncompromisingly blasphemous lyrics, Deicide helped set the standard for death metal well over three decades ago and have maintained them ever since. Originally issued in 1990, Deicide's eponymous debut bursts with minor, dissonant and diminished riffs with all the subtlety of a nuclear battle. The Hoffman brothers, Steve Asheim, and the ever-controversal Glen Benton tried to make the most demonic slab of metal ever to rise from the depths of hell and they succeeded with flying colors. Blasphemous, raging, raw, primal, Satanic, you name it, they've got the musical nightmare down here.
