This sweet vintage band shirt is for the American death metal band Deicide. The shirt promotes the group's compilation album Amon: Feasting the Beast, which was released by Roadrunner Records in 1993. Deicide was formed in the late 80s and the group, consisting of Glen Benton, Brian Hoffman, Eric Hoffman, and Steve Asheim, originally called themselves Amon. They started out just playing covers of songs from groups like Slayer, Exodus, Celtic Frost, and Dark Angel before they recorded their own 8-track demo, Feasting the Beast. They then recorded a second demo titled Sacrificial.
Supposedly one day Glen Benton went storming into the office of Roadrunner Records' A&R manager, Monte Connor. Benton presented him with the band's demo and said, "Sign us, you f*cking a**hole!" The stunt worked and the band was signed the following day. They also changed their name to Deicide at the request of the record company. Amon: Feasting the Beast is a compilation album of the group's two demos before they were signed.
