10 Songs, 31 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

In contrast to previous works, Deicide slowed way down for 2000’s Insineratehymn. “Forever Hate You” and “The Gift That Keeps On Giving” are marked by chugging, stuttering rhythms that explode without notice into lightning-fast beats, only to return to a churning halftime tempo. With songs like “Suffer Again”—containing a rhythm that could almost be described as swinging—Deicide made subtle attempts to make their brutalizing metal groovier, but there's no arguing that they were most powerful when mounting an all-out onslaught. The three outstanding tracks here are “Bible Basher,” “Remnant of a Hopeless Path,” and “Refusal of Penance.” In these songs, the four band members operate as a single unstoppable battering ram, stomping and shuddering in paroxysms of pure violence. With his swampy, caustic growl, singer Glen Benton is always at the forefront of the music. But the punching power comes from guitarists Brian and Eric Hoffman, as well as drummer Steve Asheim, who offers a world-class showcase of his signature “blast beats.”

Not Deicide at their best.

Im a big Deicide fan but this is not at their best at all. The Stench of Redemption is one of my favorite metal albums and tops this cd by a long shot. Deicide is an awsome band with a great balance of major rifts and drums. If you like this band I would also sugest belphegor, behemoth, and cryptopsy. All great bands.

Decent

Ill give this album 3 stars, its pretty good by no means their best. If your new to Deicide I would suggest starting out with "Once Upon the Cross" (IMO their best record to date). The ironic thing about this record is that Glenn Benton himself has gone on record saying that this was a "terrible and rushed" record that fans should avoid like the plague, as they only recorded it to satisfy, and get out of their recording contract at the time.
