Newly Reissued Vinyl from the Roadrunner Records Catalog
First Pressing on Colored Vinyl / Limited to 1500 Copies
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 standards for death metal well over three decades ago and have maintained them ever since.
Deicide released their groundbreaking self-titled debut in 1990. Recorded at Tampa's Morrisound Studio (the legendary studio where the band would go on to record all its albums), the vicious album would soon be hailed as one of the "Top 100 Metal Albums of the 90's" by England's metal authority, Terrorizer Magazine.
In 1992, the band followed up their debut with Legion, which was an instant success, further establishing their furious musical intensity and vengeful anti-Christian stance. This landmark extreme metal release secured Deicide's place at the forefront of the American death metal scene as they rapidly earned a reputation for controversy.
Legion is an onslaught of ever-shifting double-bass and extreme guitar riffing and is considered by many to be Deicides' definitive album. While bassist/vocalist Glen Benton never accepted the categorization, his band helped define the early-90s death movement with their intricate, ultra-heavy music and low, growling vocals. An absolute death metal classic!
