iTunes Review

Following In Torment in Hell, the band parted ways with their founding guitarists—brothers Eric and Brian Hoffman—and replaced them with Jack Owen and Ralph Santolla, formerly of Cannibal Corpse and Iced Earth, two of Deicide’s most respected peer bands. The arrival of fresh talent renewed the group’s creative energies, making 2006’s The Stench of Redemption the most galvanizing Deicide album since 1992’s Legion. By their nature, the band had always been viciously fast and relentless. The difference here—as simple as it may sound—is that listeners can actually feel that the band members are way more into the music than before. The level of commitment and excitement increased tenfold with the arrival of Owen and Santolla. On “The Stench of Redemption,” “Desecration,” and the astonishing “Homage to Satan,” the mixture of ideas and enthusiasm feels organic. The songs are more extreme, but they're also more dynamic, as if the music has been shocked to life by some unholy form of electricity.

Customer Reviews

Five stars relative to previous album quality and considering their genre role

I would like to point out to those reading this review, that none of the one-star reviews that have ridden this albums score down actually compare this to previous Deicide discs or speak constructively about any of its qualities. Simply put,this is the best work deicide has EVER put out. Compared to some of their tepid mid to late 90's releases and even to their legendary self titles release and sophmore Legions album, this one is supreme. They have a newfound power, intensity and amazing presence which has truly been lacking to date; Even if you have been on the edge over Deicides vocals in the past, this is the one that may finally win you over. This is pure and powerfully death metal, and anyone expecting someone else should try elsewhere. Deicide is the ultimate voice of satan worshiping anti-religious music, and it does not look to be slowing down at anytime. Whether you agree with them lyrically or not ( I personally find them lyrically to be pushing some of the same conforming ritualistic religious patterns they criticize for another propped diety). they are definetly a force to be heard

death metal should be a religion. was bands like this that stoped me from listening to nu metal and converting to death metal. a great album...saw these guys on headbangers ball and i was instantly hooked.

This Album really rocks!!

I don't care what people say about Deicide, they are the best Death Metal band on this earth. This album may even put up competition for Legion, Deicide best album in my opinion. After the incident in Laredo, TX, they still can realese a great album. Its amazing how they work, and how glens voice suits this music. Lets hope we see more music like this, or maybe even another album from Deicide!!!

Controversy has plagued Florida-based quartet Deicide. During their first tour in 1992, the band was severely criticized for their statements in favor of animal sacrifices. Their Stockholm, Sweden, concert was canceled after four songs when a bomb was discovered on-stage. Led by vocalist/bass player Glen Benton, Deicide has delivered some of the goriest sounds to ever emanate from the Sunshine State. Their songs continue to radiate with the brutal attack of satanic death metal. Formed in 1987,...
