Deicide Brings Unholy Metal to Revolution

Deicide is death metal at its goriest. From lead singer/bassist Glen Benton's burning upside-down crosses into his forehead to the band's receiving death threats from animal-rights activists because Benton once shot a squirrel during an interview, the Tampa troublemakers have been a contentious presence for disciples of the genre. Love them or hate them, the band delivers a metal stew of amphetamine-fast shredding, guttural bass and vocals, thundering drums, and, when the band is feeling theatrical, blood (allegedly Jesus') and meat (do you know where your children are?). So many bands of the same style merely dissolve into an indecipherable mess, and Deicide's avoidance of such has made them one of the best-selling death-metal acts of all time.

Now approaching its 21st anniversary, the band will bring the blasphemy to Revolution on Sunday for the final date of a short three-show run. The members' stridently political and cheeky catalog, which includes songs like "Fuck Your God" — the number-one song used as a form of torture on prisoners in Iraq –- and "Scars of the Crucifix," will likely send you straight to hell. But the show will definitely be more fun than sitting in church all day Sunday. The service begins at 5 p.m..
