Deicide Frontman Glen Benton Converts To Christianity
Hundreds of hardcore Deicide fans are expressing their outrage today after band leader Glen Benton revealed that he has decided to convert to Christianity. Fans have stated everything from acceptance to disgust over Benton's decision. A posting from the frontman on the bands official website reads as follows: "Yes it's true. I have accepted Jesus Christ into my life as my Lord and Saviour. Obviously I looked into the Bible for previous lyrical inspiration but I never looked into the uplifting, positive messages it gives. I see now just how closed minded I had been. Don't worry, Deicide will continue and our new album will be released later this year as scheduled. The name Deicide know has a new meaning to me though. It now represents the killing of false idols. The removal of the obstructions people face that stops them from finding Christ.
"I hope you enjoy what will be the most brutal Christian death metal album ever released. God bless you all!
Deicide are expected to begin a headlining tour of America along with Living Sacrifice and Demon Hunter later this year.
