They brand inverted crucifixes onto their foreheads and play songs with titles like “Fuck You God,” so it’s clear Deicide isn’t a boy band. Formed in Tampa, Fla., in 1987, this black metal quartet also has one of the most frightening label signing stories in rock history: Bassist/demonic vocalist Glen Benton reportedly entered the offices at Roadrunner Records, slammed his fists on one of the suit’s desks, and screamed, “Sign us, you fucking asshole!” Deicide just released its 10th studio album, To Hell With God (See a pattern yet?), and it sounds pretty much exactly like you’d expect: terrifying vocals growled with a Satanic intensity, unrelenting, double-bass pedal-fueled drum workouts, and a virtuosic lead guitar attack that’ll make you beg for your life. VIP tickets are $50 and include a meet-and-greet with the band. —Ryan Reed
