Back in the late 70's and early 80's there was an especially infamous branch of Italian horror cinema - the cannibal movies. They were all pretty much the same, they were all ugly and brutal and they all relied on very similar filming techniques. By far the two most 'famous' movies from that niche genre are "Cannibal Holocaust" and "Cannibal Ferox". Nonetheless, "Cannibal Holocaust" was actually an art house film, with a clever message and some daring ideas. Fine, it had very detailed scenes depicting an abortion, impalement by the vagina, castration, chopping off a guy's leg etc., however, these scenes appeared there for a reason. The film revitalized Montaigne's thoughts and put them in a 20th Century setting. It asked some important questions and broke some barriers. Basically, although shocking and violent, it was a good movie. On the other hand, "Cannibal Ferox" was just vile. The movie lacked any sort of deeper message or artistic value and was just an exercise in mindless violence. Its only claim to infamy is that it was banned in 31 countries (or something like that).

"Fuck Your God" is pretty much Deicide's signature song now. The army even used it in their psychological operations.

A good comeback, but it doesn't really impress as much as the band's first four albums did. Still pretty damn good by traditional DM standards.
