First off, the ‘one star’ reviewer below me is either mentally retarded or a christian so don’t listen to him or her, second of all, this is my favorite deicide/death metal album ever. This is to death metal what the ‘misfits earth A.D.’ is to punk. This album is fast, furious, raw and mind blowing. You can also understand what the lead singer is growling about. Buy this album if you know what good death metal is all about. If you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about, then don’t write in a review, when it comes to deicide your opinion doesn’t count.
Old black-metal practitioners never die, but their puns get slightly whiffy. Incineratehymn finds vets Deicide listlessly picking through the same old pile of bones, a shadow of their once hell-raising self. Where Deicide once seemed to be the unimpeachable paragons of all that is evil, Insineratehymn finds them playing second fiddle to the educated blasphemy of Marilyn Manson , or competing with the industrial thunder of Type O Negative. What once was radical now seems slightly quaint. Meanwhile, the music–never the most convincing example of the devil having all the best tunes, it has to be said–rests upon indulgent guitar solos and chugging metal squall. Perhaps it’s time for them to meet their maker. Whoever that might be. –Louis Pattison

AWESOME, I LOVE THIS CD. ITS JUST AS HARD AND FAST S EARLIER STUFF! THE WHOLE ALBUM RULES. SO, WHY DOES NO ONE LIKE IT? IT IS REALLY REALLY GOOD. THE BEST SONG IS STANDING IN THE FLAMES, ITS PROBALY THE MOST CATCHY. SO, JUST GIVE IT A SECOND LISTEN AND IF YOU STILL DONT LIKE IT OH WELL THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO.
Deicide’s Insineratehymn is another great album from the Florida death metal kings themselves. This album is more slower than their older stuff, but it’s still heavy and brutal enough to make you bang you head throughout. Vocalist/bassist Glen Benton’s deep growls just keep getting stronger. The opening track Bible Basher is loaded with piledriving drum blasts courtesy of frienzied double kick drummer Steve Asheim and headbanging guitar riffs that just grab you by the throat, while Forever Hate You is a good slow number with chugging solos from guitarists Eric and Brian Hoffman. Other great songs include Standing In The Flames, Apocalyptic Fear, and Halls Of Warship. Get this album now, if you enjoy true and pure death metal. Deicide Rules!!!
Satan’s most loyal servants Deicide are back on what is sure tobe the most hotly debated album amongst their following (of which I ama member). “Insineratehymn” (clever title) shows a newly found maturity in the evil ones; the band now adding all matter of bizarre time changes, slow, crunchy bridges, and some truly inventive riffs courtesy of the Hoffman brothers (that’s Eric and Brian) to create their first truly standout album from the rest of their impressive catalogue of old-school death metal. The blastbeats now have taken a backseat to darker, heavier passages, and Lord Benton (that’s Glen) here exercises more restraint with his vocal cords, sounding much more natural, yet still possessing that unmistakable “dual-tone” roar of his…best songs being “Apocalyptic Fear” with it’s Slayer/Bay Area thrash influences, “The Gift That Keeps On Giving” with it’s weird song structure (technical complexity is this album’s biggest trademark), and “Forever Hate You” with Deicide’s best guitar work to date, reminding me a lot of the kind of thing Possessed (remember them?) and Death used to crank out. Two factors, however, caused me to stop short of giving this disc the full five: 1) The production is a bit thin in spots, particularly the snare drum and rhythym guitar, occasionally sapping some of the heaviness of some of the material (no Scott Burns this time around to helm the mixing board), and, 2) while the song titles and lyrics are now much less tacky this time around, The band still continues to write entire albums with the same archaic Satan/Christ-bashing themes that have long since lost their shock value. Compared to some of their modern peers (particularly the numerous black metal bands coming out of Scandinavia these days, with their almost poetic approach to occult lyrics), Benton’s rants are sounding increasingly juvenile and embarrassing. Nonetheless, Deicide here show that they still are the kings of old-school death metal. Check your brains at the door, dust of your baphomet, and meet me in the pit.
This is one of my favorite albums in my Deicide collection. I brought it somewhere in the summer of 2000 but long before the release of it, the song Bible Basher was leaked as an MP3 on an old Deicide site called the Behead The Prophet site which later became the Insineratehym site to commemerate the upcoming release of the album. At the time, I didn’t have a mechanism to download MP3’s. So I couldn’t download and listen to the song. Than after while, all the songs were leaked out as MP3’s and many people started saying a lot of really bad stuff about it as if it was going to be Deicide’s worst album. I always knew that Deicide wasn’t just going to go into a studio and spend their hard-learned money and produce and put out an album that sucks. That was jus not going to happen. So anyway, I couldn’t download MP3’s. So I was just going to have to wait until the album was released. So when the date of its release came, I went to the Spec’s music store close to where my grandparents lived and brought the album. Than, I took it home to listen to it and like always, Deicide delivered. Yeah, there were people who brought it and some of them loves it, some liked it, some thought it was OK and some thought it was a piece of trash. So as you can see, the album got mixed reviews, even in the magazine press but I was one of the many who loved it. I loved it and that’s all that mattered.
Now for my review. With this album, it’s another new direction for Deicide. The heaviness, brutality, intensity, aggression and evil are all here. There are plenty of solos, killer riffs and blast beats. There are some slow, medium-paced and fast songs. The production and sound are chucky and heavy. The lyrics are still Anit-God and Anit-Christainity but a little bit but more personal. The “Hail Satan” thing makes a return but without any emphasis on things like Satanism, sacrifice, necronomicon and that kind of thing. The themes are about insulting God and Christains, refusing to convert to Christainity as a show of repentence and the foolishness of Christains who feel that they must suffer for their faith. Plus, there’s a song called The Gift The Keeps On Giving who’s lyrics are pretty much in the same vain as This Is Hell We’re In from Serpents Of The Light. All in all, it’s a really awesome killer album. Some of my favorite songs here are Bible Basher, Standing In The Flames, Halls Of Worship, Suffer Again and Apocalyptic Fear. Get this album and prepere to be insinerated.
