Deicide to Debut Craft Beer “The Light Defeated” at Decibel Metal and Beer Festival

In conjunction with their upcoming headline set at Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest, death metal legends, Deicide, have collaborated with craft beer institution, 3 Floyds, for The Light Defeated. Named after the closing track from the band’s forthcoming new album, Banished by Sin (out April 26th on Reigning Phoenix Music), it will make its pouring debut at the Philadelphia edition of Decibel’s long-running extreme metal and craft beer event. Find out more below.

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.

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.
