Hey folks, The Asian Invasion ready to bring you another album review. What could I possibly say about this band that has not already been said?
Deicide. 1987 was their inception to the world of metal and they have been kicking ass and taking names since then, mowing down everyone in the way. I've been a big fan of them since the day I heard their self titled debut. All the way til 2011 when they released "To Hell With God," I more than enjoyed Deicides brand of straight forward, take no prisoners death metal.
"In The Minds Of Evil" is the newest effort from these death legends and it dropped November 26, 2013. Kevin Quirion is making his recording debut with the band, since he joined shortly after the release of the aforementioned last album. He joins the relentless Jack Owen in the twin guitar attack and of course, Glen Benton is front and center with his killer vocal ability and shredding groove on bass. Steve Ashiem brings the pain once again behind the kit and Jason Suecof lends a hand in the production of this album. He's produced many metal albums over the last decade with so many being outstanding.
I must say he hit it out of the park with this effort. The production quality is crisp and clear and it just hits you like a Mac truck. The record kicks off with the whispering sounds of, "Some men just want to watch the world burn." Perfect start to all the chaos that's about to proceed. The title track sounds like the world is burning in the background, but I wouldn't want anything less from these boys from Tampa, Florida.
There's a reason why Deicide is one of the best selling death metal bands of all time. They just crush every time out and have made it a staple to release great sounding songs that kick you straight in the teeth. 'Godkill' is another favorite track here, the opening riff just slays and the tempo never lets down. Blast beats and growling vocals are always at a premium and I wouldn't have it any other way. 'Kill The Light Of Christ' is a great example of this.
This album stays true to who Deicide are and it proved to me one thing. Deicide is like a fine wine; they just get better with age. Nothing will stop this band from going down as one of the greatest of all time, regardless of sub genre.
