Deicide – ‘Once Upon the Cross’

Release Date
Roadrunner Records
Death Metal

This afternoon in the Metal Digest office we’re feeling all Eastery because we’re blasting out ‘Once Upon the Cross’, the 1995 third studio album from Deicide. ‘Once Upon the Cross’ is a pure exercise in non-fuckery, clocking in at just over 28 minutes, this is an album which hasn’t got any time to spare, it knows what its doing and delivers it well. Although a lot of focus with Deicide is often on Glen Benton’s lyrics, it is the guitar wizardry of Eric and Brian Hoffman which really stand tall here as Deicide deliver yet another death metal masterclass. So this afternoon, blast this record out loud and if your elderly neighbours are fearful of you going to Hell, then that’s fine, with todays energy prices, you’ll be nice and toasty for a change.
