I bought this, on tape, when It came out. I was 13. It blew my mind.
From the opening "door" (?) sample, to the closing door/crypt sample, this album literally made me foam at the mouth. Obviously compared to today's modern death metal bands, it sounds a little hollow, but that isn't the point. The point is its a classic, certainly up there with the likes of Cause of Death and Blessed are the sick. I'm not one for media hear say and opinion, and some media types never gave this album a fair go. Fair enough. Each to their own. But its amazing just how many people have this in their collection.
The time changes (amount, and speed of) in every track are enough to break your neck. Its a very stylised patchwork of tempo changes, double bass blasts and two tone bellowed vocals. You know that Benton isn't just saying the words hes written. He means them! And boy is he angry!
The riff that opens Sacrificial Suicide is a real monster, a menacing build up, peaking out and then running away with your senses and smashing them around the room.
Dead by Dawn has to be mentioned. Its a true death metal anthem. Every true old school Deicide fan should be able to growl along with it! Its also a good high light track to hear the multi toned Benton perform his high and low vocal style (something he got alot of stick for in the press) and also the classic "demon" background gurgling.
The title track is a real belter with some very grand moments (and some very controversial lyrics...for the time).
Carnage in the temple of the damned is another stand out track, with a really good guitar hook, although you have to listen carefully to catch it.
Deicide (in England at least) went from not a lot to legendary over night when this came out. As mentioned already if you compare it to todays big hitters, such as Nile, Cryptopsy or Decapitated, you will be a bit let down. But remember its over a decade old. It deserves the respect its worth.
Six stars!

Deicide's self titled debut, was, to put it bluntly, outragous!

From being just about happy with Autopsy's 'Severed Survival', and Death's 'Leprosy' and their kind, Deicide go and drop this bomb and it changed my view of death metal for ever.

Glen Benton's approach to lyrics made me feel kind of uneasy for the first few listens, and as a 13 year old boy, you know that that very fact alone must mean its something worth having. If your parents wouldn't approve, it must be good!

From the clinking opener, to the rush of the scream of "MANSON!!!" right through to "Wheres my Crucifix...." this album just rocked.

Lunatic of Gods Creation lets you have it both barrels. No gentle introduction here. Dead By Dawn, if you have been into death metal from at least 1990, should be imprinted on your brain. Its the anthem of anthems as far as death metal is concerned. Its the one song that could get crowds slamming at gigs if the dj played it between live sets !!!

The self titled track "Deicide" starts with a monumental riff and blasts out a few minutes of complete distain for christian beliefs and ideologies (I'm neither a satanist or a christian, just a music fan, but as a piece of music, its a fact that its pretty provocative!)

Every track on this album is a winner and then some.

The musical element keeps the whole thing going, whilst Benton's high/low vocal assault and sheer vhement ranting makes you sit up and listen, if not get up and slam!

Deicide, at the time, were not hailed with the kind of praise Obituary and Morbid Angel got from the metal press. Infact the press' "big four of death" were Death, Sepultura, and the two previously mentioned outfits.

Deicide first came to most people's attention due to their non-musical antics - while Satanic imagery has always been par for the course in metal back before the European black metal explosion of the early 90's it was quite shocking for a band to actually walk the walk, with Glen Benton's branding of an inverted crucifix in his forehead being the ultimate riposte against anyone attempting to argue that the band were merely posing as Satanists.
Away from the headlines however, Deicide's debut album proved they could not be dismissed musically - this is unremittingly brutal death metal, and along with the likes of Obituary's 'Slowly We Rot' and Morbid Angel's 'Altars of Madness' is one of the early classics that helped define the genre, as well as putting Florida and Morrisound Studios on the death metal map. Scott Burns would later become so ubiquitous to the genre that bands would actively shun him in order to try and find their own direction, but his production here gives Deicide a stunning clear and searing sound which still melts eardrums over a decade later. Musically the band are reminiscent of a more brutal Slayer (particularly the double guitar attack of the Hoffman brothers), and while highly aggressive the only song that really hits hyperspeed blastbeats is Dead By Dawn (while a great track, this also provides the one chink in Deicide's lyrical aura - a song based on the Evil Dead films doesn't get you many credibility points). Glen Benton's vocals are brutal while still retaining enough clarity that you can actually hear what he's singing about, and the occasional addition of high pitch squeals adds to the impact (though Benton was criticised in the death metal community at the time for using vocal effects these are few and far between).
