Deicide

Deicide is an American death metal band. The word deicide means "the killing of a god", analogous to suicide meaning "thekilling of the self" or homicide meaning, literally, "the killing of a man". The band was formed in Florida in 1987, first playing under the name Carnage. After Glen Benton joined the name was changedto Amon. During this time they released two demos: Feasting the Beast (1987) and Sacrificial (1989).

Deicide is an American death metal band. The word deicide means "the killing of a god", analogous to suicide meaning "thekilling of the self" or homicide meaning, literally, "the killing of a man". The band was formed in Florida in 1987, first playing under the name Carnage. After Glen Benton joined the name was changedto Amon. During this time they released two demos: Feasting the Beast (1987) and Sacrificial (1989). In 1989 the band's namewas changed to Deicide by force of Roadrunner records, as Amon was the name of the house in the King Diamond album Them.Deicide then released their self-titled debut album in 1990. The band has been plagued by controversy relating to their heavily anti-Christian, lyrics. This was only reinforced by such stuntsas frontman Glen Benton branding an inverted crucifix into his forehead (which he most likely did with a heated piece of cross-shaped metal). The band's original line up consisted of Glen Benton on bass and vocals, brothers Eric Hoffman and Brian Hoffman on guitars,and Steve Asheim on drums. Both Eric and Brian tended to play complex solos at fast speeds and overlapping riffs, which giveDeicide the definitive heavy sound and complex song structures which are ultimately recognized as theirs. This line up remainedintact until 25 November, 2004 when Glen Benton announced that the Hoffman brothers had been ejected from the band forrepeatedly cancelling shows and walking out on tours. For the remainder of that tour, the guitar roles were filled by ex-CannibalCorpse guitarist Jack Owen, and Vital Remains guitarist Dave Suzuki. Following the tour, Suzuki was replaced by Ralph Santolla,formerly of Death, Iced Earth and Sebastian Bach. Santolla once stated he is a Catholic and this has received a small amount ofshock and ridicule from some metal fans. Eric Hoffman replied to Benton's claim of them being kicked out of the band andstated that they actually left on their own. He also claimed Benton was unproffesional, could barely play bass guitar and was nota true satanist. Benton later replied to his claims but interestingly stated that the Hoffman brothers were never kicked out. Deicide almost exclusively perform songs with anti-Christian themes, and are banned from various places like other bands oftheir kind. « hide
