Customer Reviews

I love the album all the way through because all the songs are great and the production is very good.
Edgar Sanchez
This is just very heavy, intense, aggressive, powerful, scary, diabolical, evil, brutal death metal and officially approved by Satan and the majestic legions of Hell.
Ronald Placeres
Today's "music" sprouting bands left and right, and it just sucks, I'm glad to be one of the MANY people who love underground metal and death metal in general.

No doubt about it, whether you think Deicide are a real threat to Xianity or a comic book laced horror, this band DEMANDS a reaction out of you like a tiger tearing into your limbs. Their now-classic debut bursts with minor, dissonant and diminshed riffs with all the subtley 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, and boy . . .I can't name a favorite song, yet "Deicide" is standout. Blasphemous, raging, raw, primal, Satanic, you name it, they've got the musical nightmare down.

Back in 1990, Deicide, along with bands like Morbid Angel and Obituary, were the originators who helped pioneer the now famous Floridian death metal scene. Deicide combined the steroid-driven speed of Slayer with the uncompromising heaviness of Morbid Angel and the darkness of Celtic Frost to create their very important self titled debut. Its production sounds a little dated nowadays (sixteen years after its original release), but it's nonetheless an instant genre classic(k).

Glen Benton was clearly a young, aspiring vocalist back in 1990, because his bellows are higher pitched and not as monstrous as on later Deicide releases. His lyrics, though, are as blasphemous as ever. (These songs are largely about Satanic themes, and contain barked lines like "Satan!" and "suicide!") Meanwhile, the Hoffman brothers (Brian and Eric), thrash away at their guitars and drummer Pete Asheim bolsters the songs with insistent double bass drumming. The brutal, fiery riffs and wild solos (which often evoke Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman) and interlocking death metal blasts sound tailor made for each other (they go together like sushi and that nasty, spicy green mustard). Thus, this album is composed of ten ferocious, bludgeoning, awesome sounding kicks to the head.

With a driving, hyper speed, almost thunderous blast beat and thrashy, surging guitar attack, "Blasphererion" is one high point of the album. Several of the songs, like "Lunatic Of God's Creation" (a song about Charles Manson), "Dead By Dawn", the title track, and "Crucifixation" (the album closer), sport blistering, almost buzzsaw guitar leads and quick, pounding drums.

This is one of the first Deicide albums that I ever bought. I once bought this on cassette along with Legion because the song Dead By Dawn was the only thing I had by Deicide. It was on an old Roadrunner compilation album called At Death's Door. I would listen to that album all the time as well as the song itself until I realized how awesome the song really was. I also realized that I was missing out on a really great brutal band. Than, one of my classmates at school had tape recorded by a friend. He was listening to it in class and I was pretty much jealous. This made me want to get this album along with Legion. So I finally made the choice to buy this album along with Legion all on cassette and I've never regretted it. This album is a classic by far.

Now for my review. This is just very heavy, intense, aggressive, powerful, scary, diabolical, evil, brutal death metal and officially approved by Satan and the majestic legions of Hell. It's got solos, killer riffs, blast beasts, demonic vocals and unholy passages. This is for fans of old school death metal as well as fans of satanic death metal and even triditional, satanic black metal. I mean it's something for the evil as well as the average brutal death and even black metalhead. Some of my favoite songs here are Sacrificial Suicide, Oblivious To Evil, Dead By Dawn, Mephistopheles and Day Of Darkness. Buy it and let the darkness begin.

First off, for those people who bash on Deicide for singing about the same thing, that being the death of God and Jesus and so on, they need to take a step back and see what they are listening to. All of the mainstream crap that is played on the radio IS THE SAME THING!! EVERYTHING IS THE SAME!! The songs sound the same, they all have the same lyrical content as the last. One cannot tell, at least I can't, when one band starts a new song or when another ends, it's pretty sad. Most of the mainstream bands will eventually die out in a few months and another one will come and take it's place. Now for Deicide, they have been around since 1987 when they called themselves Amon, 20 years ago, and they are still going strong. Never having to change their sound or their lyrical content. Today's "music" sprouting bands left and right, and it just sucks, I'm glad to be one of the MANY people who love underground metal and death metal in general. So if you want to bash death metal, you need to shut your faces and take in the amazing music that is...DEATH METAL! Listen to some real talented people who do what they do best. Anyways, onto the review...Deicide never seems to let up with their aggression and brutal aural assaults on the ears. So if you want to support some real music and listen to some real talent, buy this album along with all the other Deicide albums. Also recommended listens are Beneath the Massacre, Inveracity, Jasad, Disgorge, Guttural Secrete etc...SUPPORT BRUTAL DEATH METAL...it is a genre that is long from being a dying breed.
