Deicide - Deicide (1990) Retail CD
Death Metal/ Black Metal
I bought this, on tape, when It came out. I was 13. It blew my mind. From the opening "door" (?) sample, to the closing door/crypt sample, this album literally made me foam at the mouth. Obviously compared to today's modern death metal bands, it sounds a little hollow, but that isn't the point. The point is its a classic, certainly up there with the likes of Cause of Death and Blessed are the sick. I'm not one for media hear say and opinion, and some media types never gave this album a fair go. Fair enough. Each to their own. But its amazing just how many people have this in their collectionmore….The time changes (amount, and speed of) in every track are enough to break your neck. Its a very stylised patchwork of tempo changes, double bass blasts and two tone bellowed vocals. You know that Benton isn't just saying the words hes written. He means them! And boy is he angry! The riff that opens Sacrificial Suicide is a real monster, a menacing build up, peaking out and then running away with your senses and smashing them around the room.Dead by Dawn has to be mentioned. Its a true death metal anthem. Every true old school Deicide fan should be able to growl along with it! Its also a good high light track to hear the multi toned Benton perform his high and low vocal style (something he got alot of stick for in the press) and also the classic "demon" background gurgling.The title track is a real belter with some very grand moments (and some very controversial lyrics...for the time).Carnage in the temple of the damned is another stand out track, with a really good guitar hook, although you have to listen carefully to catch it.Deicide (in England at least) went from not a lot to legendary over night when this came out. As mentioned already if you compare it to todays big hitters, such as Nile, Cryptopsy or Decapitated, you will be a bit let down. But remember its over a decade old. It deserves the respect its worth. Six stars!
