I read this on the net a bit ago. Let me first say that KD is the coolest ever! I did meet glenn once at a show and he was nice to me. So i am not judging at all. Anyone know how this fued started, if its true?

  • Hello.
There was some shit talking, but I can`t remember the details. I think Benton stood for most of it. As usual.
Like, whatever.

I remember seeing in some magazine once where Glen was trying to start some shit saying that King was not a real Satanist because he is to nice.  And also something about how if he ever met him, Glen would show him that he was the true Satanist by punching him and beating up and stupid stuff like that.  It was real silly like usual with Glen.

It was mentioned to King once about how Glen kept going on about him, but King being a class act downplayed it and said how he never will say anything against another musician so why someone would have a problem with him makes no sense.

@riff. Its pretty much what PRHILL said... I really cant recall exactly, but months ago i just googled something like deicide contraversies and this was in the story. Thats what i basically remember. I think glenn was just talking trash trying to be the more so called real satanist and some stuff like that. Its all school yard gibberish in my opinion. And as i mentioned before, i like both of them. I do like mf kd music more than deicides though. But deicide has a couple of great albums to. :)

I love Deicide, but the band members do seem to not be the brightest people in the world.  As far as Glen being a Satanist like King it is hard to tell.  Glen seems to change his beliefs a lot from what I have seen.  King on the other hand has remained strong in his beliefs since day one.  So you tell me who the real Satanist is? :king:

actually King and Venom are very good friends, they have done some wild things together when they used to get drunk,  some great stories King has related in some interviews.  That so called fued between them was an act.  King and Venom felt that by insulting each other in the media it would give them both more publicity and it worked.

your welcome.  King said it was just something silly they came up with when they were younger.  But they have been thrown out of hotels together due to getting drunk and howling at the moon.  One night one of the Venom guys threw a bottle at some girl and it broke in the hotel room, and later he stepped on it so King had to drive him to the hospital, but King was drunk and was driving off the road and stuff.  Then at the hospital King was pushing him in a wheelchair up and down the hospital halls.  Some great stories King related in this one interview I saw.

Well, Glens band was named Amon before, but had to change it because of this:

After recording their second Amon-demo in 1989, Amon changed their name to Deicide. Roadrunner Records forced them to do that because there was a song called "'Amon' Belongs to 'Them'" on the King Diamond album, "Conspiracy."

I'm quite sure Glen wasn't all that happy to being forced to change the bandname. But who knows.

Deicide stands out more as a band name...

Sure but that is irrelevant. It doesn't change that fact that Benton was forced to change the bandname due to King Diamond.

I remember reading an interview with Glenn Benton in a metal magazine in the early 90's (when Deicide was a new band) where he said stuff like prhill mentioned; KD are not a real satanist, etc, and also some extremely derogatory stuff about him and Anton La Vey. All for publicity, off course.

Deicide btw = Glenn Benton + hired hands. The Stench Of Redemption is a hell of an album though! Haven't listened to the last enough to comment on it.

Wow, i didnt know about the name change thing. Oh well, deicide is a way better name anyway. Mabey they will tour together one day and throw all this water under the bridge. If not then it would be a cool video game where king in full makeup battles all the people who went against him. :cool: :D:

if that whole Amon thing is true I'd be pretty pissed off too sure, it's not King Diamond's fault but come on...

not like he owns the rights to the word Amon, record labels are pure assholes sometimes.
