Really excellent death metal. The riffs that the Hoffman brothers come up with here are just flat out excellent. Of course the whole Deicide band was always awesome, but all the members really shine here. The songwriting is really up to par as well.

A lot of people basically slag everything post 1992 from Deicide, which is a bit of a shame. This and Once Upon aren't exactly as good as the first two albums, but they're not terrible and definitely highlight death metal albums.

Of course I've always had a soft spot for this band, as a Catholic who has been critical of the church for its backward thinking and poor choices, and the way they propose to teach young people about the word of Christ (rather than teaching from the Bible because it's too archaic and old, they simply tell you to pray, and don't help you actually understand God in any kind of practical way or even the history of the church and its implications in the world abroad --mid 90s sunday school--) and the Catholic faith in general, I can't help but throw up the horns when the Deicide starts playing.

For those who haven't been a part of the Catholic faith, or aren't christians, I suppose what Glen does could seem old hat. For people like me, though, he performs an invaluable service. Here's to Glen's fine legacy as one of the better healthy outputs for those frustrated by religion.

On the other hand, there are also those who just toss a band like this out the window for even attempting to be anti-christian, and to those I have to say, for shame. You are missing out on some of the best metal ever made. I always laugh at thrash heads and thrash magazines. The 1990's was by far the greatest decade of metal music ever, and people still ignore it and act like it doesn't exist because it might be controversial. I think the adults who think that way need to put their man pants on. You with your sad fat paunch and your broken teeth and missing hair, still afraid of truly brutal music.

To think that people still believe Slayer is as brutal as it ever got. And I love how these same people will always say stuff like this is Slayer-lite, or totally aping Slayer. Wow. It got a lot more brutalz guys, it got a lot more metal, more heavy, more technical, more everything.

I hope society one day wakes up and realizes its folly, but I fear it will be too late and these bands will be too old. Sort of like how they just woke up to Slayer (probably because of the video game Vice City and whatnot) and the fact that Prince and Michael Jackson weren't the only ones making records in the 80s.

PEACE.

Definitely one of the best albums by Deicide IMO.

The fourth release from Deicide was a huge unpleasant surprise for me...
It's a good album but what I still hate to this day is crappy guitar sound. Stupid ,too much polished, video game guitar sound...it just sucks. There's no aggression, power, just like they had on 'Legion' or 'Once Upon the Cross'...that fat juicy meat grinder guitars,man!
Besides that, the album is good...it just delivers and that's it! Sadly soon after this one the band will go through lots of BS which reflects on their next 2 albums. Avoid them and check 'Scars...' , 'The Stench...' and 'To Hell...'.

In keeping with the same theme as every album by Deicide with the anti God ,anti religion rheteric Glen Benton seems to be focused entirely on. Deicide delivers what I would call the most brutal album of any releases they have made. Tracks on this cd pull no bones about his anti Christian ideas. You can see the hate and resentment he has towards God in every song. I have just about every other cd by Deicide and it is there but this one is more clear to the listener. Take away the anti-Christian hooray and you have on this cd and every other Deicide release really good death metal. For new Deicide listeners this is not the cd to start with if extreme harsh anti religious lyrics makes you wince. I believe in God and Christ very much and this doesn't change my mind in any way. I simply take this for what is entertainment not any worse than a horror movie about satanic things. Good for any death metal or extreme metal collection.

One of the best sound vinyls I own, had to mark it 3 stars as there is a defect that makes it skip a few seconds on the second to last song on the first side.

Regardless of their tired boring subject matter, Deicide is just not a good death metal band.

This is Deicide's last great album. This is nasty and catchy. Lyrics will stick in your head all day. Many of the archaic reviews for this album are by the religious, crying about subject matter. They're upset about music by a band who's name should give you a pretty good hint at what they're about. They all claim to like death metal, but I don't really think it was for them.
