Deicide (band)

Deicide is an American death metal band. The word deicide means "the killing of God".

The band was formed in Florida in 1987, first playing under the name Amon. During this time they released two demos: Feasting the Beast (1987) and Sacrificial (1989). In 1989 the band's name was changed to Deicide and they released their debut, self-titled album.

The band line up, which has not changed since the band began, is: Glen Benton on bass, brothers Eric and Brian Hoffman on guitars, and Steve Asheim on drums.
