This is one of my favorite albums in my Deicide collection. I brought this in the spring of 1995. I had already become a major Deicide fan the year before when I bought the first album, Legion and Amon - Feasting The Beast. I first found out about the release of this album by reading a bad review on a local underground magazie here in Florida called JAM Magazine. I can't remember the whole review but it ended by saying "Deicide is more silly than sinister here." That dissapointed me. In being a Deicide fan, I knew they could never put out an album that sucks. So I bought the album that same day along with Brutality's Screams Of Anguish all on cassette and the album didn't dissapoint me at all. As a matter of fact, it totally ripped.
Now for my review. This is one of the most sinister albums in the Deicide album catalog. It has everything that any Deicide fan could ever ask for. Every single song here is killer, heavy, brutal, sinister, aggressive, hellish, satanic and evil. There are plent of solos, brutal riffs and blast beats but everything is just hellbent aggression and totally destined to scare Christians to death. I mean this album delivers. Some of my favorite songs here are Christ Denied, When Satan Rules His World, Kill The Chrstian, They Are The Children Of The Underworld, Behind The Light Thou Shell Rise and To Be Dead. But this album or be crucified.
