This was the first deicide cd i brought and it serves as an excellent introduction to the band. Right from the first legendary riff of "when satan rules his world" the incendry power of this recording hits home. The instruments are mixed to such perfection that the recording creates an alomst mellow feel of unison amidst the chaos - effortlessly changing form crushingly fast to insanely catchy slow riffs. Benton displays incredible vocal diversity occasionaly varying the usual, deep, rich tone with screaming vocals. Some have criticised his voice - i however regard his voice to be at its finest here, the tone is perfect (somewhere lower than corpsegrinder fishers' yet higher than barnes'. In my opinion this album contains the best death metal voice ever. The Hoffman brothers turn out an incredibly tight musical performance - the solos are incredibly musical, (just listen to once upon the cross) based on musical scales. Steve Ashiem pounds out devastating beats...
This is another favorite album in my Deicide collection. I brought is in the fall of 1998. I've listened to Deicide before but I've never seen or heard them live. I already had all their records. So there was no reason who I shouldn't get this album. So I got it at a Camelot Music store and I listened to it all the way home on my CD walkman and I enjoyed the hell of of it.
Now for my review. This is Deicide's first live album. It was done live at the International House Of Blues. With album, you will hear Deicide like you never heard them before. The intensity, heavines, brutality, aggression and evil is all here. The production and sound is a little in the vain of Serpents Of The Light since it was during the Serpents Of The Light tour but it's really good. The album also has a lot of the classics and some of the new tunes from Serpents Of The Light. The only problem is that there's not too many songs off of Legion. There's only Dead But Dreaming but the album is still...
I really do not understand how several so called fans of Deicide can be so dissappointed with this album. I have heard several other live thrash/death albums (Slayer's, Morbid Angel's and Cannibal Corpse's), and this one is on par, if not superior to those in sound quality and mix. On Slayer's "Decade..." the vocals and drums are often more buried than they are on this cd, yet I hear no one complaining about it. Hey, this is Death Metal. To me, this album is well mixed, the vocals are right on, the guitars are pummeling as are the drums, and the bass is not quite there, but it's also not completely absent. The song selection is quite good, thankfully not leaning too heavily on their newest cd at the time "Serpents of the Light", which to me, is their weakest to date. One other so called fan dared to say that Benton's vocals "do not fit the music"! How dare you then call yourself a Deicide fan?!? His vocals on this cd are the same vocals he has employed on all Deicide releases up to...
