Deicide - Deicide Lyrics

No lord shall stand before myself

I can strike the light and see through the truth
For I'm the Deicide, Dominus, what could you do
Thou has failed you now, one again and always will
On the cross, forgotten son, a sacrifice it had to be done

Died for me, well that's too bad I don't believe
Killed my sins of the evil what I am
Your destruction, reasons of a world in pain
Blind disciple, you will never live again

Wage of death, course of life
Unsystematic birth of the Deicide
Eyes of pain, pleads of death
As you're put to rest

Three days to rise
If he lives again he is sure to die
I killed Jesus
Just to see him bleed on his pupped throne
I am evil
I'm the Deicide and I killed the lord
No more reasons
I will kill the world in another form

I rule this world


I can strike the light and see through the truth
For I'm the Deicide, Dominus, what could you do
Thou has failed you now, one again and always will
On the cross, forgotten son, a sacrifice it had to be done

Deicide Deicide Comments
  1. Jan Paradowski

    The sheer malevolence and evil of this album never ceases to impress me

  2. marian koniuszko

    Best of the best.So many years and still on the top.So many years and i am nearly death when listen that.

  3. 900cannibal

    i want you all to know.... this morning my wife gave me a blowjob in the shower while listening to Deicide.

  4. Jeffrey Lieberman

    Excellent production. One of the best Death Metal albums ever. Everyone was at their peak here and the lyrics are awesome. (FLESHBEAST AKURA RHEMA), (FLESHBEAST EBCDIC), and (FLESHBEAST ROSEBUD) are all influenced by this album.

  5. S K G

    I can't believe euronymous hated deicide
    This just sounds evil as mayhem

    T. N.

    This isn't true. He didn't hate them, he actually respected them a lot.

    "[...] it's true that Euronymous wanted to express that he thought DEICIDE was an honest and true death metal band."

    S K G

    @T. N. thats why i said "hated"

  6. Jambhavan on tour

    Die for me, well that's too bad, I don't believe...3:27

  11. yoe91

    Unpopular onion. Sorry *opinion. So I think the first albums had tremendous old school classic death metal precursor cachet, but prefer the later ones circa Once upon the Cross/Serpents of the Light as I think the song-writing was more mature and ripe even the lyrics at their best there.

  12. Corpse Brenda

    Aguante glen benton

  13. The future of the Universe

    Only God can save you guys now. This is out of my jurisdiction. One simple fact:

    Satan will not win.

    Night Shade

  54. dacoda666

    Florida death metal is superior

  55. Dominus

    One of the most Evil songs ever conceived. It is so brilliant in it's malevolence. I used to write some weird ass stories but I never even dreamed this realm existed. I figured evil with man but this pushes all of the boundaries. Fell in love with this album when I first got it when it came out and still listen to it. Some of my favorite shit and of course my namesake "Dominus" is from this song. What a being it would take to kill Jesus with such Hate and contempt and so vividly. Hats off to Benton for his insane fucking lyrics. Also the song "Carnage in the Temple of the Damned" just to name one. A true story based on Jim Jones and the People's Temple where the phrase "Drink the kool-aid" comes from. Glen says "Drink the blood" for effect, I imagine but it works. People trying to avoid the poison were were running away and gunned down. Even a US Senator was killed. Fucking brilliant. Horror movies in song.


    Only as evil as it gets you silly little queer.

    Flat Earth Realm

    DominusLuna Shut up. Its called god is evil, not this song.


    Lol yea right.

    AC Skins

    I used to write the lyrics on my jail cell walls, negroes fear Satan


    Flat Earth Realm r/wooooosh

  56. Kyle Roesner

    Four people goto church. Lol
    Best metal tune ever!!!!

  57. diziamonddave

    the riff at 2:19 before he says i rule thsi world sounds like the openeing riff to skull full of maggots by cannibal corpse

    Lightning Bolt

    diziamonddave its great

  58. lost child

    fuck all religion i am a sacrificial life which which ever god you obey i lost my rights to existence thanks to the every lasting eternal love the creator i am one who shall never know piece because of the fact he left me in the hands of child abusers your wars in the name of god have nothing on the war the condemned shall rage


    yes my guy we go to hell please go with um i want to eat your skin and drink your blood.

  59. Thenightrulesall

    Florida death metal at it's finest

    christian König

    absolutely agree


    Florida death is the best scene

    christian König

    +FloridaDeathEater fucking right

    THE Post

    This is why I love living in Tampa and getting to hang out all these artists.


    THE Post that must be crazy dude, I can imagine you buying some milk at the store and seeing Glen down the isle.

  60. OmegaLuma


  61. Jesus Christ

    You heard what Glenn said. Hear it again! 0:27.


    Jesus Christ, you like this?

    Friedrich Schopenhauer

    +Jesus Christ what are _you_ doing here?

    Oswaldo Ferreira

    Save us!

    Csikszentmihalyi Mihaly

    Jesus, are you sure you're on the right side of YouTube?

    James MetalGod Magtagad

    Hey Jesus? You're into Deathmetal also?

  62. RecklessLife76

    Awesome. This shit reminds me of my ex. She was such a death metal junkie. And sexy as hell too.

  63. Tim Pope

    What does pupped throne mean??

    Camilo Santana

    @Tim Pope puppet throne


    +Tim Pope if i remember right i think it says pulpis in the lyric book of the album? i cant find it to check! ha googled the definition and its some type of stone.

    Chris Kaftanciyan

    Pulpus throne

    Camilo Santana

    @mk2worship you got it...

  66. Flint County to Markarth

    If you slow down the lyrics at 2:05, he says "Jesus is awesome" - Glen Benton

    Kaine O'Brien

    Maybe we should play it backwards to see if there is some kind of hidden holy Christain message xD

  67. Diabolik771

    This album was on every Friday night at our party house back in the early 90's.

    Syn DeVil

    @Diabolik771 n u didn;t invite me???

    isaac selander z

    I would've loved to be there but i wasn't even alive in the 90s.


    isaac selander z Me neither. It sucks to be born in the 2000s because no one our age listens to metal.

    isaac selander z

    @悲しい男の子 not entirely true. Being born in 2001 isn't a bad thing for me imo. There's good bands that people our age are into (infant annihilator, omnihillity, cattle decapitation, etc.) and not just in metal but in ither genres too. Only thing that sucks for me rn is the "21 and over" concerts i wanna go to.

  68. Billy Mays

    no lord shall stand before myself.

  69. Brad’s MK5 Jetta

    I would laugh so hard if I found out all the members of Deicide were full on Christians and attend church EVERY DAY lmao xD


    Technically Ralph Sanatolla (guitarist for stench of redemption era) was Catholic but not practicing. He was a Beast on guitar so nobody gave a fuck though

    Hassan Ahmed

    @12GaugeMage  Technically he was the best lead guitarist they had.

    P Smith



    +Brad Navarro Not related but Dave Mustaine is a confessed Christian and he is one serious bad ass guitarist. And well Alice Cooper too. lol

    Chris Kaftanciyan

    Well look at slayer there is someone who is devoted christian

  70. MrRushbrown

    i like deicide - from deicide - on deicide <:^)


    Esse vinil revolucionou o death metal na época foi foda 

    Pedro Fernandes

    DOMINUS ABRUPTUM Na minha opinião é o melhor álbum de Death Metal da história. E o Deicide a melhor banda desse estilo.
