After 30 years, it’s plausible to think DEICIDE would want to slow down and soften the message. None of that is happening on new album Overtures of Blasphemy. In fact, Deicide, with head demon Glen Benton and co-conspirator Steve Asheim at the helm, are only becoming darker, heavier, and more extreme.
“I originally thought that the older I got the more mellow I’d get,” says Benton. “That’s not the case. I would say I’m darker now than I ever was. What I’ve been through over the years has definitely darkened my heart and soul.”
Lyrically, Overtures of Blasphemy continues Deicide’s crusade against, not just Christianity, but all religions. Benton says the lyrics also dig deep into my own personal darkness.
“It’s what I am. Death metal is what I do.”
