Deicide - Number One Torture Hit In Iraq


The following not everyday blog was posted on Deicide's MySpace page:

"Deicide Music used by US Military to Torture prisoners in Iraq! -- Deicide scores a 1 hit with US Troops!

Gathered from evidence obtained through various reports, leaked interrogation logs and the accounts of soldiers and detainees, a list of the top 24 songs strategically used on military prisoners in Iraq was recently made public, according to Mother Jones Magazine's website. [Mother Jones is an independent, left wing, nonprofit magazine rooted in progressive political values and known for its investigative reporting]

Among a list of such musical luminaries as Eminem, Metallica and AC/DC (as well as non-luminary Barney The Dinosaur), was Deicide, coming in at number one with the song "Fuck Your God" from 2004's "Scars Of The Crucifix".

When word of this info first got to Deicide drummer, Steve Asheim, the only thing he could really say was "It's cool. If we're upto military standards of audio abuse, it makes me feel like Deicide's doing our part for the troops." Of course this moment is not the only history that Asheim has with the armed forces. "My dad was a marine, as were my uncle and grandfather;" says the Deicide skinsman. "I didn't follow in their footsteps since I was so busy with the band thing, but I'm glad I was eventually able to contribute somehow."

Some of the tactical circumstances where prisoners may have heard "Fuck Your God" include sleep deprivation and interrogation disorientation. While some may see this information as a shock, other readers of the source article have taken a slightly different view of the situation. Commented one reader of the source article, "Honestly, the barney theme song is more disturbing than Deicide's "Fuck Your God"."

For more info, including the entire list of songs, go to HERE."

OK, so they have basically helped the torturing, and are proud of it? Though I'm not sure what the other band members think.
Hm, there's also one Rage Against The Machine song in that playlist, I'm sure they're attitude towards the whole torturing is quite different from the way Asheim sees it..
Also I do think that those theme songs from children shows are much more disturbing than any rock or metal songs.

Uh, hello, it's fucking Deicide! Why would a band whose philosophy is that the life of anyone who believes in a superior entity is worthless, actually be worried about this? And if you are a fan of Deicide for more than their music, why would you be bothered by this?

I guess you're the kind of person they've got that Bee Gees song in the list for.

Mankind sucks btw. But that's nothing new. At least kudos to Deicide for being consequent with what they express and what they think.

I beg to differ, the news is Deicide's reaction.

Well if you play a certain song over and over and over and *sigh* over again with the maximum volume, it may get a liiiiiittle bit on your brains. Especially if you're not used to that kind of music like Deicide.

I just think it's a stupid method of torture. If they have to torture (the whole Iraq business seems unecessary to me anyhow) - why don't just use conventional methods and not playing music at the same time?
In my opinion it is almost blasphemy to use art for such stupid actions.

I agree there, yeah. No matter if the songs actually work, the whole torturing thing is wrong.

Poor Deicide, the worst thing for a metal band is to be used by America's goverment.

Yes, I agree with you at a certain degree. Deicide are able to stand on their two feet and express what they personally think, they don't care about judgemental people who would think they bring bad influence. But i think the bad thing is that Deicide torture these prisoners ears, because their music delights mine

Nevertheless, even if judgment might not affect them, some of the fanbase might backfire. I would'nt at all, because first and foremost, it's the music that counts.

I think you got a good point there, just because the Iraq war is messed up and becaus the US Army is torturing prisoners it doesn't mean that all Americans are stupid and all Iraqis are innocent.
