Known the world over as one of the founding fathers of Death Metal, Deicide stand strong to this day as one of the most influential and controversial metal bands ever. With a relentlessly brutal sound and uncompromisingly blasphemous lyrics, Deicide helped set the standards for Death Metal well over a decade ago and have maintained those standards ever since.
In March 2008 Deicide faced yet more controversy when a magazine revealed a leaked playlist of music that has been used to torture detainees, number one being the band’s ‘Fuck Your God’. Steve Asheim was quoted as saying that he was glad they could do their part for the troops and was glad Deicide were able to contribute.
Deicide have battled through numerous protests, accusations and line-up changes, and yet remained true to the music and their fans. Despite their problems though, Deicide are still triumphing as a band, with music and live performances that continue to draw in ecstatic reactions from their rabid fanbase.
Deicide return to Australia in April 2009 for what could quite possibly be the final time. With a new album under their belt in “Til Death Do Us Part” Deicide continue to deliver some of the most brutal, evil & satanic death metal on this god forsaken planet.
