Deicide are a band from Florida that has been around since the mid 80's and are one of the pioneering bands of satanic death metal and this is a review of their 2004 album "Scars Of The Crucifix" which was released by Earache Records.
Drums are mostly fast with alot of brutal blast beats while the bass playing is all rhythm bass and has alot of fast riffs being played, as for the piano when it is utilized it has a very dark avant garde feel.
Rythym guitars are a mixture of midpaced riffs mixed with alot of fast death metal playing that is very 80's death thrash influenced while the lead guitars are mostly fast guitar solos and on some songs they contain alot of melody.
Vocals are mostly low pitched death metal growls that are easy to understand with some high pitched screams while the lyrics are mostly anti christian themes with a touch of satanism, as for the production it sounds very professional and every instrument has a very good sound.
In my opinion this was a really good album from Deicide and it was probably their best album of the 2000's, all Deicide fans probably have this album.
STANDOUT TRACKS INCLUDE "Scars Of The Crucifix" and "Fuck Your God". RECOMMENDED BUY
