DEICIDE LAYS WASTE TO AUSTRALIA
Deicide are currently midway through their first ever full Australian tour. Having played Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, and dates in Auckland & Christchurch (New Zealand) still to come, but they will end the tour back in Oz in the sub tropical heat of Brisbane.
The band are in devastating form Thursday, Dec 14 saw them play to a sold out crowd of over 700 at Sydneys Gaelic Club. Known as the homeland of metal for touring bands into Sydney, the Gaelic Clubs foundations were under immense stress enduring what was possibly one of the loudest gigs ever performed within its walls.
According to an eye-witness account:
"Deicide came out and destroyed. It all began with Dead By Dawn and then a barrage of the old, the very old and plenty of new material from The Stench Of Redemption that was played with the precision of a military machine.
New guitarists, Ralph Santolla and Jack Owen are so in tune with and balanced against Glen Benton and Steve Asheims bottom end assault that they seem like they have been in the band forever
The band were so tight and heavy that by the 2nd time Glen came up for air to address the crowd it was only because of the Satanic smell he was enduring due to a member of the rampant crowd having lost control of their bowels. Yes, Deicide really do make you shit yourself.
Deicide are truly on top of their game, not only was the sound level pushed to extremity, it was also crystal clear making sure that every double kick and blast beat, every riff and every Depths Of Hell vocal was felt from every angle within the venue.
No doubt the people of Sydney and the rest of Australia will be left with physical evidence of having experienced Deicide live. A few more than others as there was more than one willing to brave the 20 foot drop into the mosh pit from the balcony at the Sydney show, but when one person offers a Homage For Satan, others follow."
