DEICIDE Plays Holland Without Frontman GLEN BENTON: First Photos Available

A bunch of high-quality pictures from DEICIDE's headlining concert last night (Saturday, January 6) at Doornroosje, in Nijmegen, Holland have been posted online at (NOTE: DEICIDE photos appear on pages 2-3). Support at the show came from PSYCROPTIC and VISCERAL BLEEDING.

As reported earlier today, DEICIDE kicked off their European tour on Friday, January 5 without frontman Glen Benton, who reportedly was forced to stay home to take care of pressing legal matters (although this has not been officially confirmed). Replacing Benton for the first four dates of DEICIDE's tour is SEVERE TORTURE drummer Seth van Loo (photo), who previously took care of vocals in CENTURIAN and NOX. It is not presently clear if Benton will rejoin the band after January 8 for the remainder of the tour or if the group will continue with a different replacement.

Seth van Loo apparently learned 17 songs in one afternoon and did "a great job" at the first show of the trek, which took place in Eindhoven, Holland. [NOTE: Seth van Loo is only singing in the band; he is NOT playing bass. There is currently no replacement bassist in the group.]

DEICIDE's setlist for last night's concert was as follows:

01. Dead by Dawn
02. Scars of the Crucifix
03. Stench of Redemption
04. Death to Jesus
05. Serpents of the Light
06. When Satan Rules his World
07. Bastard of Christ
08. They Are the Children of the Underworld
09. Desecration
10. Dead but Dreaming
11. Christ Denied
12. Behind the Light Thou Shall Rise
13. Walk with the Devil in Dreams You Behold
14. Homage for Satan
15. Lunatic of God's Creation
16. Kill the Christian
17. Sacrificial Suicide

These are the remaining dates of DEICIDE's European tour that will feature Seth van Loo on vocals:

Jan. 07 - GER - Saarbrucken @ Roxy
Jan. 08 - HOL - Rotterdam @ Baroeg

As previously reported, DEICIDE's video for the song "Desecration" has been posted online at and The track comes off the Florida-based death metallers' latest CD, "The Stench of Redemption", which was released in August via Earache Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Scars of the Crucifix" was recorded at Morrisound in Tampa, Florida and marks the first recording with the new DEICIDE lineup following the departure of the Hoffman brothers.
