Deicide is the eponymous debut album by American death metal band Deicide. The album contains all of their demo tracks plus the two songs "Deicide" and "Mephistopheles". While containing mostly satanic or blasphemous lyrical themes, "Lunatic of God's Creation" and "Carnage in the Temple of the Damned" concern Charles Manson and Jim Jones respectively, and "Dead by Dawn" deals with the plot of The Evil Dead. The album was important to the progression of death metal, due to its then-unmatched brutality and the vocal stylings of vocalist/bassist Glen Benton. His deep, guttural growl was enhanced and manipulated with studio production to make the vocals as harsh as possible. It is considered to be the second bestselling death metal album of all time.
