Myrkridia

As of last week, Deicide’s self titled album turned 30 years old. I look back on it like it was yesterday as that album was the one that really pushed me headfirst into death metal. Sure, I had dabbled in the tape trading circles but nothing I had heard to that point really grabbed me like “Lunatic of God’s Creation” or the pummeling of “Dead By Dawn.” Stone cold classic. Anyway, there’s no way to know which album off of these new release lists we’ll be looking back on with the same admiration but damn if it ain’t fun searching.
