This CD is perhaps the best album by the Florida based deathsters. If you are into death metal just grab it. It's well worth it.

From: Luis SLAYER Date: May 6, 2001 at 12:05
This is the best Death-metal you can grab!

From: Stu Date: June 14, 2001 at 0:41
Yeah this is a great cd, Legion is my fave but this is second with their first tying! Great Thrash/Death Metal.

From: d.v.t. Date: November 5, 2001 at 14:33

From: HatanisT Date: December 7, 2001 at 1:15

From: gOAT Date: February 9, 2002 at 6:51
evil, sick, twisted a great Death Metal Cd, get this shit if you like Cannibal corspe, SFU, Dying Fetus

From: Motley Date: May 2, 2002 at 5:58
Very intelligent christian band. Great choruses and fine gospel. very smooth and fine. almost like easy listening...Are they really influenced by Stryper?? GET THE IRONY?! Cant take this wannabe satanic-'Im sooo EVIL' crap music serious. GET A LIFE! You sound like my old coffee machine LOL

From: dokken6008 Date: May 26, 2002 at 20:56
Ha!! Motley's right on. My brother listen's to this 'Death Metal' bullshit all the time. Needless to say, he is not a very happy person...

From: Date: October 30, 2002 at 8:08
its again Stefan Bbara and I wont say that what I sad It was just a joke but this band is realy fucking good

From: Bandy Date: January 15, 2003 at 0:22
Above and beyond! This is where Deicide starts getting really good.

From: me Date: January 28, 2003 at 4:05
where the fuck are the melody lines in this bizzare bands material. what's with all the anti-christian lyrics? They are a musically competent band, technically sound and tight. Their speed is impressive, but they are just too weird and fucked up for my liking..do they make a living with this unmelodious drivell, and will they ever make it? I think not...give me 80's Metallica and Slayer anyday! What is a caeco-daemon???...pleeeeeease!!

From: Motley Date: July 18, 2003 at 17:14
Ive heard they have made a tribute to Stryper called to hell with the devil, even wrote some lines to the song...This is the purest shit you can even bother to have known about...Bands who claim the are satanic and UUUUhhhh so dark and full blooded must have gotten the idea from a Donald duck magazine....Get the irony?

From: tito ruiz Date: August 17, 2003 at 11:17
para que pagar por estos albums si los puedes descargar desde el KAZAA

From: SIXXSWINE Date: December 19, 2003 at 21:00
An over the top death metal record. From the first view of the artwork, you know this will be one hell of a lesson in brutallity! One of the BEST death metal records in the history of the genre. Do yourself a favor & pick this motherfucker up! \m/

From: unknown Date: February 7, 2004 at 1:57
this cd, completely amazing. th whole 'father, why have you forsaken me' part, best of all. the music, vocals, everything in this album, defintely worth paying every fucking cent.

From: . Date: May 22, 2004 at 16:49
Mediocre Death metal band, ive heard far better, alot more brutal bands, you think Diecide are a brutal death metal band? your wrong.

From: Satan Date: June 17, 2004 at 20:40
These guys are the fucking greatest! They shit on those Christian asskissers like no other band! 'Kill the Christian' is officially Hell's new national anthem!

From: pistchikfrumtx Date: June 28, 2004 at 2:13

From: HARDRPLEASE@AOL Date: July 24, 2004 at 22:22
i have just recently started listening to Deicide and find the band awesome. Would like to talk to others about the song 'Once upon the cross'. Looking for others that see what i see.

From: putrit pussy Date: November 4, 2004 at 13:40
once upon the cross and legion; are one of the top release ever!!! i recomend you to listen this albums since are better lyrics and better rithm..hail deicide..........

From: Slayer666 Date: June 17, 2007 at 22:57
Sweet album cover. Especially the un edited one. Check it out.

From: juan carlos Date: September 4, 2007 at 2:02
Este es mas corto de tiempo que su album debut y el Legion! la verdad que me quedo con lo anterior. Obviando las letras que son totalmente anti-cristianas pues no hay mucha variación con el Legion. La 2,5,4 y 3 en ese orden lo mejor. Para mí el 1º es mi favorito y el Legion en segundo lugar. 7.8/10

From: halfordhughes Date: June 2, 2011 at 13:14
this is their best album ever!!!
