With Deicide’s special Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest headlining set only a month away, Decibel is honored to reveal an exclusive beer collaboration between the Florida death metal legends and the Indiana craft beer institution 3 FloydsThe Light Defeated—named after the closing track from Deicide’s forthcoming new album, Banished by Sin (out April 26 on Reigning Phoenix Music)—will make its pouring debut on April 12-13 at the Philadelphia edition of Decibel’s long-running extreme metal and craft beer event.

“When I first heard the lambs bleating in the opening of ‘Satan Spawn, the Caco-Daemon’ I was hooked,” says 3 Floyds’ Brewmaster Chris Boggess. “Growing up in the buckle of the Bible Belt it was the sickest, scariest thing I’d ever heard. Deicide are one the classic American death metal bands. And The Light Defeated is brewed in their honor, our take on a classic American style stout with the ABV coming in at 6.66%.”

An extremely limited number of “Metal & Beer” tickets—a deluxe ticket that includes unlimited samples of all 15 of the breweries all weekend—granting access to The Light Defeated are still available. But unlike Glen Benton’s hatred of Christ, they won’t be around much longer, so grab yours now!

The legendary Florida death metal band Deicide will release their 13th album Banished By Sin on April 26, 2024. As well as being featured as the cover story in the world’s foremost Heavy Metal authority Decibel Magazine, Deicide will be headlining night two of the 2024 Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Philly.

Decibel writes, Prepare for a high-gravity dose of bourbon barrel discipline on April 12-13, 2024, when Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Philly—the world’s loudest, heaviest, two-day craft beer event—returns to the Fillmore Philly to deliver more lunatics of quad’s libation for its seventh year! Florida death metal forebears Deicide will close out the second evening via a special set comprised exclusively of early ’90s crushers from their landmark DeicideLegion and Once Upon the Cross records.”


Originating from the depths of Tampa, Florida in 1989, DEICIDE were conjured by Steve Asheim and Glen Benton. Rising to infamy with their second album, Legion, they have since become a monolithic figure in the death metal universe. Their catalog of destruction includes twelve studio albums, a live album, two compilations, and two live DVD’s. Notably, their first two albums, Deicide and Legion, stand as monumental achievements in death metal sales. DEICIDE, notorious for their relentless assault on the senses and unapologetic brutality, are on the verge of unleashing their thirteenth album – a testament to their undying legacy in crafting the most punishing soundscapes in death metal.
