No. 20: Deicide, ‘Deicide’ – Best Debut Metal Albums

Deicide, 'Deicide'

As the famous story goes, Deicide‘s Glenn Benton reportedly marched in the office of Roadrunner Records’ A&R man Monte Connors, slammed a demo onto his desk and decreed, “Sign us, you f—ing a–hole!”

The next day, Deicide were offered contracts and their self-titled debut came shortly after. The death metal album delves deeply into Satanism and blasphemy, cult leaders Charles Manson and Jim Jones, and the cult horror film ‘The Evil Dead.’ Tracks such as ‘Dead by Dawn’ and ‘Crucifixion’ are fairly simple in structure, but they get straight to the point with no B.S. included.
