It's actually zero stars. This is the worst death metal album in history, and I love death metal! The songs are a bunch of crunchy guitars and annoying screaming without any of the technicality of Suffocation or Pyaemia, without any of the raw emotion of In Flames of At the Gates, or any of the sophistication of Opeth or Meshuggah. Just a a whole lot of disoriented cacophony. As to the lyrics: I respect a person's right to criticize God and Christianity (I do that myself when people try to convert me), but lyrics should be at least poetic, and singing about pooping on the Bible is the antithesis of good poetry. And the artwork! First of all, even ignoring, the religious connotations thereof, It's so revolting and gratuitous, that when I first looked at it, I could hardly eat for a week. There is no symbolic or artistic significance to a disemboweled Christ, and I won't even mention my deep respect for old Yeshua (and I'm a Satanist, at that!). If you want good blasphemy, you'll get it from none other than the mainstream band, Marilyn Manson! He's smarter than just saying mean things without relevance. Deicide are the most overrated death metal band ever, and should not be ranked with geniuses like Death and Morbid Angel! This album was so bad, I couldn't wait to sell it; it went directly in the dumpster! Avoid this piece of trash at all costs!
