I think almost everyday I hear something new about this guy and the **** he has done in the name of Satan... astounding how this man could hate Christ as much as he likes making music.

So he does things to oppose Jesus like..


Burning an inverted cross on his forehead.

ALWAYS wearing the gold inverted cross necklace. He has one on EVERY interview/public appreance I've ever seen him in.

Wearing that cute Jesus t-shirt with the Ghostbusters style red crossout mark over his face.

Publicly stating he will commit suicide at age 33 to mock Jesus's death.

Calling up Christain radio shows to assert the Christians that they are wrong, and that God is a lie.

Refusing to fly on planes because the high elevation of flight will bring him "closer to God".

Being an offical member of the Church of Satan, then quitting calling them "posers" and "Hollywood Satanists" because it wasn't "satanic" enough for him.

Writes songs with titles like '**** you God", "Bible Basher", "Kill the Christians", "When Satan Rules His World" ect....

Any other Benton/Deicide stories are much welcolmed.

Is this guy for real? or is he just pulling our chains?

Too bad Benton is over 33.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.

hes for real
but i think he exploits a lot of what he believes for reality too.
he changed his mind before his 33rd birthday claiming suicide was for pussies.

and the bigfoot sighting is hilarious. the uks best extreme metal magazine "terrorizer" dedicated the front page of an issue to it.

hes got an awesome voice

IF both these statements are true, then he's sort of a hypocrite.

Anyway, I think he overdoes it a bit. From his interviews, he seems like someone who hasn't grown up.
please excuse any typos or grammatical errors in the above post.

Either way its fuel for his cookie vocals, he needs some kind of inspiration to sound that pissed!

Here's some more....

Having his soul cleansed of "goodness" so he could live a life completely opposite of Jesus.


He once said in an interview that he purposely let demonic spirits possess his body before the 'Deicide" and "Legion" recording sessions to enhance the evilness of his voice. I don't know if its true, but if you ever listened to songs like "Dead By Dawn" or "Sacraficial Suicide" there are non-human noises and voices in them.

Anyone else think he resembles the vocalist from Possessed?



Yes he does kinda sound like Jeff Barcerra. But Jeff wasn't a looney.

As for Benton, the guy is a cartoon. Shouldn't be treated as anything more than that.

He's just a joke, really, nothing more. If he's doing it for laughs and with a hearty sense of humour - which metal needs - then he's done well, but if he's deadly serious about the whole thing, then he's a complete joke.

He uses the controversy to market his music. Same way Marilyn Manson and others do this ****. Question is, Is he against Christians or against religion? I'd like to see these guys talk against Islam.

Metal had a sense of humor, up until about 1995 when the ****heads arrived.

Random belegerance acomplishes nothing, especially not with a phone call. oh no, the prank phone call of doom! no to mention that if you deny god you're denying satan.
Refusing to fly on planes because the high elevation of flight will bring him "closer to God".
That's just idiotic.

Well, than it seems like he wasted time joining.

That's hardly original, he's not the first metal band to hate god.

he's an idiot. and he's seen bigfoot.

Honestly, it took me along time to get into Deicide because Ive always thought he was a dumbass. I look past his ideals and listen to the music. Some of the things ive heard him say were just blatant teen angst "i hate god", I almost want to tell the dude to grow up. However at the end of the day, Deicide makes great quality death metal.

I've seen one of his interviews, and he does seem like a laugh. But still, metal seriously needs to keep its humour or it will become a complete joke. What happened in 95?

Last time he toured Australia, someone threw a water bottle at him, missed him by about a foot and he got pissed and walked off stage. Had to end the show.

Only old Vital Remains can even come close to competing with early Deicide and that was way before Benton got involved.

I think life has been pretty good to Glen. He creates Deicide, an impenetrable monolith of a vessel that he uses to express his hate for Christianity. He gets payed for all that as an "entertainer" or "artist", what you will. At this point there is no need for him to put that crazy thing called "creativity" into his newer albums. He can just rehash his old songs and continue going through the motions and continue to get paid for it.

The most interesting idea to me though, is if Deicide completely failed and disbanded let's say in the mid to late 90's, what would Benton be doing now? I mean, if music gave him a metaphorical kick in the balls, would he just continue making the sound of ass in cd format, or would he put his "talent" to better use.

I mean, could anyone really imagine Glen doing anything else? Imagine if he came to your door, inverted cross still in his forehead trying to explain to you why joining the privately funded Bentonian Sect of the Church of Satan would be a benefit to your life. Or if he was reduced to having a day job like most bands do. Imagine Glen working at a local department store selling toys to little children. He'd probably market his own toys and call them "Bible Bashers" and they'd be like crazy bones, but with spears and christians and whatnot. Or maybe he'd create his own satanic board game sort of like monopoly, but with chance cards that involve doing satanic rituals that may permanently turn your forehead into a pillar of religion-hating idiocy.

Or simply imagine Benton in the retirement home in 50 or so odd years, and he'll still be mumbling under his breath "damn christians and damn them kids and their music...." while some kids will be getting some attention on TV and be infinitely more blasphemous than he was in his youth.

^Idea for show: Glen Benton - 9 To 5.
Each week, Glen goes off to do a different run-of-the-mill job at different places.
