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."

How can they be proud about contributing to torture is beyond me.

Sit back and watch Deicide's popularity soar.
Stigma - 02.03.2008 at 12:31  
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 just don't get it? What's so torturing with music? I mean okay, I would infact find it disturbing to listen to Barney the Dinousar all day long but it wouldn't really kill or hurt me, would it?

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.

what if the prisoners be Head banger ??

Using Metal music for such silly actions is totaly wrong...
Poor Deicide, the worst thing for a metal band is to be used by America's goverment.

POLITICS SUCKS
and also FUCK SATANISM (Those who are pretending that are against christians but in fact are licking their balls, like Deicide, Marilyn Manson, and so on. ...)

respect to Deicide for standing for what they believe in, be those views as cheesy as they are

Checked the list and... They're using RATM to torture prisoners? Seriously that pisses me off, these CIA henchmen stand for everything RATM is against.

Seriously lame

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.
Ernis - 02.03.2008 at 18:11  
I see Prince and Christina Aguilera are also listed there....not to speak of Bee Gees.....a thing to be proud of indeed.....

I'm waiting for the anti-iraq racist bitch to send some REAL torture music, like Senthil or Stalaggh.
selken - 02.03.2008 at 18:46  
LOL I know torturing is wrong (but torture music is not a big deal IMO) but i cant stop laughing. Anyway if they are torturing bad people maybe is not so wrong.

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.

I've never heard of Sinthil but I think Stalaggh might make them go insane. (I think I might even go insane if I listened to an entire Stalaggh release!!!!)

I wish somebody torture them the same way ... I don't think they enjoy it that much. sick bastards ...
Vermin - 03.03.2008 at 02:01  
Things like this makes me wish the entire human race was wiped out, so that the world had a chance to start over. How can these numbnuts take pride in torture!? Steve Asheim should be tortured himself. It might be an effective interrogation technique, but it doesn't justify a war started by the power-hungry fascists of the U.S. Government, somebody should throw them over...

theyre deicide. glenn benton has an inverted cross branded on his forehead. they champion everything blasphemous and wrong. it should come as no surprise, granted its a horrible thing. and i'd be fucking pissed if i had to listen to the bee gees for 12 hours in a row.
BurbotsRevenge - 03.03.2008 at 09:04  
well when u look at Deicide its not surprising really
dismaleuphony - 03.03.2008 at 09:49  
Just the fact that torturing exists, let alone for these reasons, and the enthusiasm behind it has so many things wrong with it. I can't even begin. I do understand the humor in it all - but understanding it doesn't mean I'm laughing.
Opium - 03.03.2008 at 13:59  
I found this amusing, although I do remember Glenn saying that he finds it "sad" that some people take his lyrics seriously. He did comment on the MUSIC, don't forget, for certain posters above me, not the lyrics.
hefestus - 03.03.2008 at 17:39

For me it would, if you're in 2 by 2 meters cell and you haven't slept for two days, what more disturbing can be more than listening to Barney?!
Darkside Momo - 04.03.2008 at 15:27  
Well well..

Steve Asheim is consistent with his 'fuck humanity' views. OK

But :
- by supporting torture in Iraq, he supports the views of his government, which are a bunch of christian extremists entrenched in a holy war (and yes, Bush used the whole crusade imagery a few times). So a satanist supports christians who would gladly burn him anyways...
- he therefore also admits that the US army see his music as a bunch of noise so horrible that it can only be used as a torture instrument. They have no respect for his music, nor does he, it seems.

BTW not all satanism is about being evil and vile, promoting torture, murder, and shit like this.

Pathetic.

Deicide standing for their views? What the Fuck?
I wish Deicide vocalist stood up for his views when he said that he would commit suicide when he is 33 years old!!
Actually I respect those who sing about torture and condemn at the same time. Singing about something doesn't mean promoting it. You may sing or write about something to condemn it or to use it as a metaphor or whatever.... what Deicide said about the torture thing is just something to promote this childish Satanic image they have. Their vocalist said in one documentary about metal that Satan tells him what to sing. Would you take that seriously? I take all what they say as serious as the suicide thing.

It's still bizarre to use art (in this case music) as torture.
