The ever controversial Black/Death Metal act Deicide has had their moments. Their 2004 collection, “Best Of” [Roadrunner Records], assembles most of them into one razor-sharp package. Let the blast-beats begin….
Regardless of their views, they make some great Death Metal. Combining Blackened Thrash and Florida Style Death Metal, Deicide fuses speed, power, and groove-dredging aggression. This is pure, apocalyptic hostility unleashed. (The lyrics are offensive…so you have been warned.)
The best of these gut-wrenching cuts includes the hyperkinetic “Dead By Dawn,” the burrowing groove of “Serpents Of The Light,” “Dead But Not Dreaming,” and “They Are The Children Of The Underworld.”
Overall, this one fiery retrospective of the band Deicide. Stay savage. Farewell.

Keep the faith, and the AGGRESSION. War.
