"How do you hide an upside-down cross burned into your forehead?" No, the query is not the faux setup for a joke, it's an actual concern for singer Glen Benton when he attends his teenage son's school functions. Nonetheless, the (true) punchline is: "A large hat collection."
It's been 25 years since the Deicide frontman/bassist had a day job (floor coverings, if you must know), so obfuscating his music stratagems, i.e., the aforementioned cross, or song titles like "Death to God," "Homage for Satan" and "Godkill" is not a big concern. (After all, the band name does mean "the killing (or the killer) of a god"). Plus, controversy--health department inspectors at early Deicide gigs due to raw meat being thrown into the crowd, or a more recent feud with Chicago band/tour mates Broken Hope--can only help when you're a death metal band. Indeed, Deicide, along with Cannibal Corpse, are the genre's two biggest sellers.
