LP Review: "Overtures of Blasphemy" by Deicide

Overtures of Blasphemy
It's pretty rare for me to review an album by a famous band, much less a very famous band, but you gotta hand it to Deicide.

The Glen Benton led group is on the cusp of releasing their twelfth studio album. For a Death Metal band to crank out that many, well, it's like a rock band doing fifty records.

Case in point...contemporaries Morbid Angel only have nine.

In a world that's ever changing and growing, it's comforting to know that Benton is ever steadfast in cemented stances. Songs like One With Satan remind us that Deicide is still committed to our fully inflated Dark Lord and bitchin' guitar riffs.

If you're looking for some old school death metal written and performed by progenitors of the genre, well, then you're in luck. Deicide, like Slayer, continues to remain to true to what makes them Deicide.

Loud guitars. Blast beating drums. Lyrics about Satan. If you liked it last time, you're probably going to be totally into it this time.
