Deicide  


Deicide was one of the mainstays of the early Floridian death metal scene (alongside Death and Morbid Angel, among others), and still reigns supreme as a potent death metal force, led by the ever controversial Glen Benton (he with the inverted cross on his forehead). Neither their old-school style nor their heavily anti-Christian lyrics have wavered much over the years, the band sticking to a tried and true formula that has largely served them well, though their last couple of albums (Insineratehym and In Torment In Hell) haven't had the same fan impact as their earlier releases such as Legion, often regarded as their best. Having signed to a new record label, a rejuvenated Deicide released Scars Of The Crucifix early in 2004.

The Hoffman brothers left the band in late 2004, due to various personal differences. Benton and drummer Steve Asheim eventually settled on guitarists Jack Owen and Ralph Santolla, both metal veterans, to take their place (though they, too, have since been replaced). The Hoffmans eventually resurrected the name Amon (Deicide's early name), and that band recorded an album in 2012.
