Deicide is an American death metal band formed in 1987. The band rose to mainstream success in 1992 with their second album, Legion. Over the years, their lyrics have resulted in bans, lawsuits and criticism from religious groups and the public.
The band was originally called Amon, and recorded two demos under this name, which were later released on CD as "Amon: Feasting The Beast". They changed the name to Deicide in late 1989, just prior to the recording of the self-titled debut. Read more on Last.fm
