Event Details

Death metal band from Tampa, Florida (USA).

Formed in 1987 by drummer Steve Asheim and guitarist brothers Eric and Brian Hoffman as "Carnage", then hiring bassist/vocalist Glen Benton and becoming "Amon". They would later change the band name to Deicide in 1989. The band rose to mainstream success in 1992 with their second album Legion,[1] and is credited as the second best-selling death metal band of the Soundscan Era, after Cannibal Corpse.

Deicide is known for their lyrics, which cover topics such as Satanism, anti-Christianity and blasphemy. Their lyrics have resulted in bans, lawsuits and criticism from religious groups and the public.

Line-up:
Glen Benton - Vocals & Bass (1989-present)
Steve Asheim - Drums (1989-present)
Kevin Quirion - Guitars (2008-2009, 2009-2010, 2011-present)
Mark English (2) - Guitars (2016-present)

Original line up consisted of Glen Benton & Steve Asheim with Eric Hoffman & Brian Hoffman on guitars. The Hoffman brothers left the band and reformed the predecessor band Amon (18).
