As Amon - Feasting The Beast (1987-1989)
Deicide was formed in Tampa, Florida July 21, 1987, after guitarist Brian Hoffman called Glen Benton, replying to an advertisement the latter had placed in a local music magazine. They are influenced by bands such as Destruction, Sodom, Venom, Bathory, Possessed, Death and Slayer. Within days the band, consisting of Benton (bass/vocals), Hoffman, Hoffman’s brother Eric (guitars) and Steve Asheim (drums), had been named Amon after the Egyptian deity. Within a month, Amon had recorded crude Feasting the Beast 8-track demo in Benton’s garage and had started playing the occasional gig in the Tampa area. In 1989, Amon recorded their second demo, Sacrificial, at Morrisound with producer Scott Burns.
However, before being known as Amon, the band was known as Carnage: “Carnage consisted of 5 members the 2 members were let go. Glen was found in a local music magazine. We had him play bass. And another singer was hired. He could not phrase properly so he was let go. Then we decided have Glen sing. Amon was brought into this world.”- Eric Hoffman
