About this album

The Stench of Redemption is the eighth studio album by Deicide. It is the first album by the band to feature Jack Owen (formerly of Cannibal Corpse) and Ralph Santolla (formerly of Iced Earth) on guitars. Two tracks were released exclusively via iTunes on June 6, 2006 (note: 6/6/6). The tracks are Homage for Satan and Crucified for innocence. Deicide decided to release the “digital EP” via the internet because of financial problems that the band and Earache Records had. As with previous albums, it features themes of destruction and anti-Christianity.

This is the first Deicide album to have writing credits attributed to individual band members. All the music is written by Steve Asheim and all the lyrics by Glen Benton, although Jack Owen and Ralph Santolla are given credit for “additional arrangements, harmonies and themes”.

Many critics have praised this album as a return to form for Deicide, despite the band losing both Eric and Brian Hoffman, the two founding members. There is a noticeable change in the guitar work, as guitar leads are much more prevalent and sometimes even reach epic proportions (a good example being the closing track, The Lord’s Sedition, which is not only the longest Deicide song to date, but also notable for the moody, dark, clean guitar intro). The style of the solos on the album is also drastically different than it has been on previous Deicide records. Ralph Santolla and Jack Owen utilize a style of guitar soloing along with the traditional riffing of Deicide. Many fans have also noticed Glen’s trademark double-tracked vocal style sounds better than it has in years.
