Substantially, Death Metal's spread started on 1989, when bands like Morbid Angel and Obituary released their debut albums -which are two death metal milestones. Morbid Angel created the absolute paranoid death metal sound, while Obituary managed to convert the word "Rotten" into music! We shouldn't also forget the great albums released from Autopsy and Pestilence that year. After these releases everyone believed that even extreme music had a boundary. They were wrong…
It was about 1990 when with their debut album, Deicide created one of the most grimey albums in the history of metal, the same titled "Deicide". This album contains some Death Metal anthems, songs which can't ever be forgotten from the death metal fans. The rawness of "Deicide" was something shocking and also unprecedented even for those years. Just the fact that the setlist in the live shows of the band included at least three or four songs ("Dead By Dawn", "Sacrificial Suicide", "Deicide" and "Lunatic Of God's Creation": the most famous songs in the bands history) means a lot, I guess.
I do not intend to say a lot about the album's content. If someone hasn't listened to it at least 100 times and calls himself a death metal fan, then he deserves to be hanged! The songs on "Deicide" are just perfect: powerful, catchy in some moments, extremely fast (super drumming), Hoffman brothers do a great guitar work and Glen Benton's vocals are, seriously, Violent and Furious! Need more? Great cover art (it shows the picture of a demon which Benton has in one of his medallions), great production (one point from being perfect) and Great Blasphemous Lyrics!
Perhaps, I've said too much. So, go now and buy "Deicide", this absolutely violent and churlish album, maybe the greatest achievement from Deicide. This is not an album that you should just listen to. It deserves to be in Every extreme metal collection!
