Deicide (band)

Deicide is an American death metal band formed in 1987 by drummer Steve Asheim and guitarist brothers Eric and Brian Hoffman as "Carnage" hiring bassist/vocalist Glen Benton and becoming "Amon". They would change the band name to Deicide in 1989; the band rose to mainstream success in 1992 with their second album Legion, is credited as the second best-selling death metal band of the Soundscan Era, after Cannibal Corpse. Since their debut album in 1990, Deicide has released twelve studio albums, one live album, two compilation albums and two live DVDs. In November 2003, their first two albums and Legion, were ranked second and third place in best-selling death metal albums of the SoundScan era. Deicide is known for their lyrics, which cover topics such as Satanism, anti-Christianity and blasphemy, their lyrics have resulted in bans and criticism from religious groups and the public. Deicide was formed in Tampa, Florida on July 21, 1987, after guitarist Brian Hoffman called Glen Benton, replying to an advertisement the latter had placed in a local music magazine.

Hoffman and his brother, along with drummer Steve Asheim, had played together as the band "Carnage", in need of a bassist and vocalist. Carnage played cover songs by Slayer, Celtic Frost and Dark Angel; the new band, called Amon, consisted of Benton, Hoffman's brother Eric and Steve Asheim. Within a month, they had recorded the Feasting the Beast 8-track demo in Benton's garage and had started playing the occasional gig in the Tampa area. In 1989, Amon recorded Sacrificial, at Morrisound with producer Scott Burns. Malevolent Creation guitarist Phil Fasciana recalls an early Carnage show: "It was like Slayer intensified a thousand times." "I guess Carnage had hollowed out a mannequin and filled it with fuckin' blood and guts from a butcher shop... and they threw the fuckin' thing on the floor. Morbid Angel had these pit bulls with them back and they were just tearing the meat up, it was a weird scene, man. There was blood and meat everywhere." Benton stormed into Roadrunner Records' A&R man Monte Conner's office and presented him with the demo, saying, "Sign us, you fucking asshole!"

The next day contracts were issued to the band. In 1989 the band's name was changed to Deicide at the request of Roadrunner Records. Deicide released their self-titled debut album produced by Scott Burns at Morrisound, in 1990, their debut featured re-recorded versions of all six of the Sacrificial tunes that had secured them their record deal. Both the Hoffman brothers tended to play technical solos at fast speeds and with overlapping riffs, which gave Deicide the definitive heavy sound and complex song structures; this lineup remained intact until November 25, 2004, in the wake of increasing animosity between Glen Benton and the Hoffmans in regards to royalties and publishing. The Hoffman brothers went on to reform Amon. Shortly after, the guitar roles were filled by ex-Cannibal Corpse guitarist Jack Owen, Vital Remains guitarist Dave Suzuki. Following the tour, Suzuki was replaced by Ralph Santolla of Death, Iced Earth and Sebastian Bach. Santolla stated he is a Catholic and this has received a small amount of shock and ridicule from some metal fans.

In spite of this, Deicide's eighth studio album The Stench of Redemption album received rave reviews. In January 2007, Benton left the European tour and returned home to the United States as a result of legal issues at home. Asheim announced that Seth van Loo, from opening act Severe Torture, Garbaty "Yaha", from the Polish death metal band Dissenter, would be replacing Glen Benton starting on January 9 in the Netherlands, until Benton could rejoin the tour. Benton rejoined in Paris on January 13. On May 24, 2007, it was announced. Subsequently, he joined Florida's Obituary and appears on their album Xecutioner's Return as well as the tour. On July 20, 2007, guitarist Jack Owen announced that Deicide is "on hiatus" and he has joined Ohio based death/thrash combo Estuary for touring purposes; the band did a Balkan tour, dubbed "Balkans AssassiNation Tour", in October 2007 alongside Krisiun and Inactive Messiah. By November 2007, Deicide began work on its ninth studio album at Florida's Morrisound Studios.

Entitled Till Death Do Us Part, the follow-up to 2006's The Stench of Redemption promised to be Deicide's "most savage and aggressive to date," according to a press release. Drummer Steve Asheim recorded drum tracks and Benton started recording vocals in December. By April 2008 two songs off this album were posted online, it was released on April 28, 2008. As the record was coming out, Benton considered retiring from music, in the midst of personal matters including a custody battle. On January 6, 2009, Deicide posted a blog on their official Myspace page saying they had signed a worldwide record deal with Century Media, with Ralph Santolla returning to the band for a European tour, they were said to be working on material for a summer 2010 release. In early 2009 they toured with Vital Order of Ennead. Guitarist Kevin Quirion of Order of Ennead joined the band in the summer of 2009. In June 2010, Glen Benton revealed, it was produced by Mark Lewis at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford and was released on February 15, 2011.

Deicide released their eleventh studio album, In the Minds of Evil, on November 26, 2013. In November 2016, it was apparent that guitarist Jack Owen had been replaced by Monstrosity guitarist Mark English without an official announcement made by the band.
