Staff review by
06.06.2006. Not very surprisingly, this oh-so-evil date proved to be the incentive for countless metal bands to release something new, as painfully obvious and cliche as that is. Of course, where would the world's funniest death metal band ever be if they didn't get a piece of this satanic pie?

Honestly though, as much as I like to make fun of Deicide, their lame satanic theatrics and their boring and formulaic death metal, this time it seems like the band actually managed to floor me. Yes, its true - the Stench Of Redemption EP is fucking brilliant. It's been a while since I heard a death metal release that sounded as fresh as this. I don't know what is to blame - the new members? Or maybe the evil date did really inspire the numb mind of Glen "Mr. Satan" Benton himself? We might never know but the result is quite phenomenal - inhumanely heavy but at the same time not devoid of proper hooks and even some well crafted guitar solos. This is not the same bland Deicide of yore - this is music with a clear sense of purpose, an infectious groove and a sense of power that has the capability of stunning even the oldest death metal veteran fans.
