The 2015 lineup for the annual Metal Alliance Tour has just been announced, with the headliners this time being the ever controversial death metal pioneers from Florida, Deicide. The band, whose very name means “killing god,” has been at the center of controversy for most of their 28-year existence, whether it be for the upside down cross that leader Glen Benton has repeatedly branded into his forehead or for their extremely confrontational anti-religion stance. With song titles such as “Death to Jesus,” “Fuck Your God,” “Kill the Christian,” “Behead The Prophet,” and “Scars of the Crucifix,” Deicide has never been one to shy away from the controversy. So, if you’re planning on attending this tour, prepare for the religious protestors to be out in force!
Check out Deicide’s Official video for the track “Homage for Satan” from their 2006 album The Stench Of Redemption here below.
Rounding out this year’s lineup will be Swedish death metal outfit Entombed A.D., fellow Floridians Hate Eternal, and the stellar newcomers from Pennsylvania The Black Crown Initiate.
The dates and venues are yet to be announced, but be sure to check out this lineup if it swings through your town when it goes through the United States and Canada starting on the east coast in May and ending in late June. This may just be 2015’s “must-see” death metal tour.
