5.0 out of 5 stars In your face anti-Christ death metal April 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
First off, I was tempted to not give this compilation 5-star because "Kill The Christian" is missing. Other reviewers have stated this, but I feel this defines Deicide, and they could have taken off "Standing In The Flames", which is from the horrible "Insineratehymn". But, whatever. To start off a Deicide review, I have to defend them. Glenn Benton's religious views are a little out of wack, as we should say, and he is obsessed with hating Christians and is also obsessed with Jesus Christ's death. His hating Christians lyrics are somewhat immature later in Deicide's career (Bible Basher is a perfect example; sounds like a six year old could write that). That is a reason why I prefer the self-titled and "Legion" over anything else, but hey, they are still a good band.

So, we get Jesus freaks coming over here saying how "God is great" and "Benton is an idiot", but religion is religion, and if you hate Christians, (like every black metal band and other death metal bands), so be it. I can defend Deicide because in America we have the First Amendment, and I personally can't stand Jesus freaks. You can prove a Christian wrong, but you can't prove an Atheist or non-Christian wrong. So, lay off Deicide, because they could be like Mayhem and burning churches and killing people. The worst Glenn Benton did was burn an upside-down cross in his head, which is wrong, but cool nonetheless.

As for the music...Not many death metal listeners like Deicide because they are apparently the "thorn in the side, along with Cannibal Corpse". I think that is stupid. Deicide is brutal, with two talented guitarists, an above average drummer and then there was Glenn Benton's musical ability. If there was a death metal all-star team, Benton would be up there for his vocals. They are sick.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hmm April 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have nothing to say about Deicide. All I have to say is this: Everyone giving this one star, claiming to be a Christian who's offended or wants their money back or whatever... Here's a novel idea: If you're a Christian, how about YOU DON'T BUY CDS FROM A BAND CALLED "DEICIDE"? Christ, blame it on your own stupidity. That's like me rating gospel music 1 star, ranting about how the band name "Jesus our lord and savior" was somehow misleading. Use the thing in your skull.
- Thus says the Pellington

5.0 out of 5 stars Great place to start December 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a great place to start your Deicide collection, and it serves as a marvelous introduction to death metal. Fans of bands similar to Deicide (Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, etc.) should already be aware of this hellaciously omnipotent beast, though if you haven't heard Deicide it is a must that you purchase this album, or one of their others. For already established fans of the genre it would be wise to purchase a "real" album, I recommend "Self-Titled", "Legion", or "Insineratehym", though any of their releases will do fine, as Deicide have quite an exceptional catalogue. Though this album is definitely a more than sufficient example of their work, and starting here, being a death metal fan or not, is certainly not a bad thing.
If you have an interest in hearing some severely extreme music, or are curious about the often misunderstood and misrepresented genre of death metal, Deicide's "Best Of" is probably the perfect album to begin with. You'll definitely want to hear this album all the way through, especially upon first listen. The muscianship is as prodigious as their deliverance. Solos and rhythm are brilliantly interwoven here, in a way bands seldom accomplish so affectively. Strength is molded with speed in a remarkably profound musical attack. Though Deicide are definitely not the most multifarious band in terms of styles, they certainly do not claim to be, nor do they have any intent to abandon their brutally intense genre. So rarely will you find a band so dedicated to any specific sound, that Deicide's devotion to their style is one of the most attractive and unique aspects of their music. Unequaled and unbeatable, the vicious strength and loyalty of this band will forever make them the ultimate example of death metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Of The Beast Named Deicide April 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is another great Deicide album to add to my Deicide collection. I bought this in the fall of 2003. This is not another studio album but this is accually a compliation album of the very best songs from Deicide. So this album pretty much traces the band's entire career while during the Roadrunner years. A lot of the hits and classics from just about all their albums are here. The only problem is that there are only 2 songs from Insineratehym and none from In Torment In Hell. Despite those album not being the best albums that the band has ever put out in people's mind, I personally think those albums are great anyway. Gettting back to this album, this pretty much is a collection of Deicide hits and classics and it's something that true Deicide die-hards like myself would like to own. It's also something for those who want to get a first impression of the band. Definitely worth buying.
