While I usually post some pagan/folk/black metal type stuff on this blog, sometimes it’s good to switch things up. And by that, I mean sometimes you just need an injection of simple, good ole brutal fucking death metal into your life, and what better than Tampa’s finest? As a death metal singer, Glen Benton can growl like a demon gargling with the pieces of glass he broke from a church window, and yet even with such intense growls, his words are still discernible – at least to my ear. The instrumentals are also powerful, but work tightly together like clockwork, and know just when to change things up to keep things interesting.
If you would like to watch a high contrast, black and white video of Deicide screaming sacrilegious lyrics while people dance with snakes and convulse on the floor, then this video is for you. If you need to find a video to show your local church minister, then this video is not for you – unless you go to the Church of Satan. Then that would probably be okay.
