Twenty years ago, an underground cult movement surfaced in Tampa, Florida that revolutionized the metal world. The pioneers of this burgeoning scene, DEICIDE, are still striking fear into hearts of the masses to this day. Century Media Records are extremely proud to announce a worldwide deal with DEICIDE, one of the founding fathers of death metal and easily one of the most influential and ...

Deicide (technically thats 2 of the 4 members in this line up) have regained their rightful place at the top of the death metal heap with this slab of powerful noise.

With "The Stench of Redmeption" Glen Benton and Steve Asheim prove that, even when previous albums have been less that favoured by fans and press alike, they had the spuds to pull themselves out of the doldrums, recruite two awesome axemen and deliver music that, to be fair, we haven't been so excited about since 'Legion'.

With the addition of Jack Owen and Ralph Santolla, Deicide have expanded the creative process of recording great music. Obviously this means that the Hoffman bros have departed, something Benton, in a recent interview was much thankful for.

From the title track opener, to the almost experimental opening of the final track, 'The Lords Sedition' this album just shreds !

Benton uses the much deeper vocals he has discovered since fronting Vital Remains, but obviously there are the over-laid screaming hi-vox that we have all come to expect. Steve Asheim's drumming is up there with the best off them. Blasts, fills, and the ever present Deicide kick drums.

Owen & Santolla play some of the best leads and bridges you'll hear since "Dechristianize". Which, kind of brings me onto the subject of the solos. Many, although not all, are very Dave Suzuki-esque. I know he helped on a few tracks. The first lead on Homage to Satan, for example is very remeniscent of 'Dechristianize'. Not that that is a minus...its a massive plus. If it sounds good, and it fits with Deicide's sound then fantastic!

The Lord's Sedition is a bit of a breakaway from the normal Deicide sound (actaually the whole album is breakaway), with its high note opening, then semi acoustic guitar.

Wow - who would have believed it? Having had an incredibly stable 4 man line-up through all their previous seven albums the sudden shocking departure of half of the band meant that Deicide's reputation was now on the line, with `The Stench of Redemption' having a lot to prove. Amazingly not only does the new line-up prove they can match the old, but `The Stench of Redemption' turns out to be the best album Deicide have ever released! The best songwriting the band have ever had is now coupled with some explosive lead guitar work from Ralph Santolla, while the thick production ensures this is still heavy as hell. Utterly essential brutal death metal, if you've never heard Deicide before this is the album to try, and if you were one of the doubters of the new line-up prepare to be shocked! Brilliant!

NOTE - Completists note the limited edition version contains the hilarious cover version of Deep Purples `Black Night'.

I first heard of Deicide after browsing on here. On further investigation I was really impressed with the music snippets I heard and had to dive head first into an order for what I thought sounded like the best album I sampled which was 'Serpents of the Light'.

I was really impressed with that album because it was so intense and fast and passionate. The musical pace took my breath away and I listened to it about 6 times or so in a row as it was so great and I was ecstatic.

So I had to discover more of Deicide and so this was the choice, the latest offer. And I must say that this is probably better I think than 'Serpents of the Light'.

It has a very similar feel to 'Serpents of the Light', in that the pace is all fast-tempo and paced with continuous speed and stamina, but I think the musicianship here is more complex and extra intricate... In it's guitar solos and drumming which obviously takes some effort if you have heard 'Serpents of the Light'.

The vocals on this album are more difficult to hear but are powerfully placed on the scene and sound like they should be there.

This is categorised thrash/death metal I think. It is themed with what you may call a 'satanic' character and displays a biblical referenced themed formula and it could be said it sounds aggressive and angry, but musically it is actually very elegant and stylish, although in an extreme sense.

I have not heard of a band who can play as fast and as well as this before. There has been alot of effort put into this and I am very pleased I have a copy of this album. Very good music. Proper Music this is.

Barely twenty seconds into the punishing title track it is already clear that Deicide have turned a corner. Behind them, it seems, are the internal conflicts, lack of inspiration, record label dissatisfaction and Glen Benton's recurrent whinging about his personal life. In place you have Nile-bothering speed work-outs, tortuous grooves and blistering guitar histrionics.

Benton seems to be uncharacteristically happy with the new line-up, fully allowing Steve Ashenhiem off the musical leash and once again injecting some venom and imagination into his anti-Christian rumblings. The void left by the Hoffman brothers has proven easily filled by the two new guys and serves to illustrate one thing only: While the Hoffmans were solid rhythm players, their lead work was often restricted to unadventurous scales and phrasing and frequent sub-Slayer whammy-fests. The Stench of Redemption is no so hampered with plenty of harmony parts, outrageous anorak pleasing solos and even some slower, atmospheric sections.

All in all it's a package that reaches even higher than their genre defining debut album and the awesome Once Upon the Cross. By the time you have taken in the phenomenally atmospheric Desecration, the ludicrously evil groove of Homage for Satan and the albums cinematic closer The Lord's Sedition you will be sold. This is an album which is not only brutal but, satanic lyrics aside, extremely mature.

For metal fans, this is a comeback that many bands could only dream of. Miss this and be ridiculed by your children a decade from now.
