This CD is complete Garbage. These guys are just a bunch of untalented devil worshiping atheists. It's just a bunch of loud noise and grunting. Don't buy this CD or else you'll go to hell. If you listen to this junk then you're responsible for the death and crucifixion of my lord and savior

No, I'm just messing with you. This CD is awesome. Go ahead and buy it; another great release from Deicide.

First a small intro about the band. Deicide is a band that is highly satanic. The band is probably one of the most satanic band you'll see as every song they make is about satanism. They claim satan is their master and so on. To many people the band members are just sick people (as shown by a person ripping off a lizard's tail in a special edition CD). The band started off with two albums Deicide then Legion and both were good (for Deicide's standings). Then came thieir next 4 albums. The first two of these (including Once Upon the Cross and Serpent blah blah blah) was a very noticeable step down from their first two. their last two was just horrible and a poor excuse for death metal. They broke off of their label, got a new label, and then made an album called .. God what was it called umm... Scars Of The Crucifixation ( I spelled Crucifixation wrong I am sure). The album was one of their best yet and there was a noteable difference with the songs on that album which is highly different for Deicide. Right now they are working on their Stench Of Redemption album which will come out on the last day of August.
This band is considered to be average in the death metal world. I personally have to agree. Deicide's Once Upon The Cross is a very average album. It's really simple. All of the songs almost sound the same all the way. There's only a slight change on every song. Although despite this this is a good album to listen to as a whole. I usually listen to it once a month and throughly enjoy it. It is still worth the time to get it. It is not bad at all by any means.

Track Listing:

1. Unce Upon The Cross: Great way to open up a CD. Get used to the sound cause that's what the entire album sounds like. 9/10

With better production, fast paced songs, and a whole new batch of Christian onslaughts, Once Upon the Cross proves to be a good Deicide album. My only real complaint is how boring this album can get after listening to it far too much.
Songs to check out: Once Upon the Cross, When Satan Rules This World, Kill The Christian, Trick or Betrayed.

Wow, this album is such a change of pace for Deicide. It's laden with pianos and violins left and right. The music has a melodic almost Beetles feel to it. I must say the picture on the inside sleeve of Glenn Benton stopping traffic to help the old lady across the street is truly touching. If you actually believe anything in this review so far then chances are you have done way too many drugs and should check into rehab tomorrow. The third (or fourth depending on how you look at it) release from Deicide brings more of the same style of music that Deicide fans love. They have not slowed down, mellowed out, converted or anything of that sort. Check out the track "Trick or Betrayed" for some very enjoyable guitar solos, and that's coming from some one who doesn't care for most solos. As always fans of extreme death metal will love this.

This was the album that made me start listening to Deicide. If you have to ask "Why" after listening to it, don't. You just won't get it. This album is a work of sheer brilliance. The songs are catchy as hell while still being completely brutal. The production is good, making Benton's vovals very audible. The lyrics are as blasphemous as ever - not that blasphemous lyrics is a must - all making this a true death metal classic.

I cant believe how aggressive and heavy this album is.The guitar work is really good and bentons vocals are very heavy.The detuned guitars make this release unforgetable and the production is also good.Deicide fans should already own this because this is one of their best.

another hot stuff, straight from hell.

I don't "grade" their albums from favorites to worst because I worship them, but I can say that this album is the masterpiece released when they were enjoying the maximum supports from their fans and the record company.

this album shows their improved use of sound effects, and effective techniques of making "chorus lines"(<- I don't know how to put this in other words).

after their release of their demo tapes remastered CD, I was expecting another hot shot, hammer smashing screams like Legion, and naturally, I was shocked to witness that they don't need to be the speed-maniacs to impress the listeners, except the christians they want to kill.

well, if you go to church and waste your time listening to corrupted preachers who drive to the church in BMW, bought with the money pirated from daily workers, donated from drug dealers, to deliver the weekly preach in disguise, in tears, to kill the devils, demons..., then you have nothing to say when the devils and demons sing in chorus, "kill the christian !". I'm hack not a satanist just like I'm not a christian, because I KNOW that two things that we are "told" to discriminate are actually the two aspects of one existence. If your mental age is more than 10, you won't believe that you go to some place called heaven when you die, just by being a moron who does as he is told and give his hardly and bloodly earned money to the priests whose job is to study how to "trick" and "betray" their belivers.

comparing to their other albums, this one is the heaviest, full of phrases that we can "sing" along(ha ha.. I didn't expected this kind of things from death metal..). I recorded all their albums in a mini-disc and always carry their works wherever I go.
