Long-running death metallers DEICIDE spent 12 hours locked up in baking Floridian conditions last weekend while they filmed the video for the new track "Homage for Satan". In temperatures reaching almost 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the band ripped through the track again and again with a level of energy and enthusiasm that would destroy many less committed bands, drummer Steve Asheim in particular pulling of the almost inhuman feat of playing for 12 hours straight in broiling conditions without dropping a beat.
Never one to be outdone, Glen Benton then upped the stakes considerably by donning the now legendary God-deflecting armor, last seen at the "Roadrunner All Stars" show, and performing the latter part of the video shoot effectively wearing a second skin. Add to that some blistering guitar work from Jack Owen and Ralph Santolla and the climactic scene of the video where Glen is seen spewing forth bile and you just know that this might just be one of the most intense videos of 2006. Directorial duties on "Homage for Satan" are handled by Detroit-based crew Scrambled Visual, who will be filming some additional Christ-baiting material back in Detroit this weekend.
