With this album, it is another direction for the band. Musically, the band still delievers the evil goods and a whole more. All of the basical elements that make the band what they are as an important death metal force are all retained along with some trips to new territories. That can be felt throughout the album. Lyrically, the band still maintains their satanic stance but the lyrics tend to deal more with the corruption of Chrstainity and religion as well as other serious issues rather than the typical "Satan, Satan, Satan" and supernatural contents of the past. The band doesn't let down at all through. They're only progressing in their dark craft.

Deicide: Scars Of The Crucifix - With this album, it's the return to fold of Deicide. When a die-hard Deicide fan listens to this album for the first time, they will hear Deicide that way they were in their former glory. The music is pretty much a mix of Legion, Once Upon The Cross and Serpents Of The Light. This is very evident throughout the album. For exemple, lets take Go Now Your Lord Is Dead. At the end of the last chorus, the songs going in to that evil, doomsday-like sound with a solo attack almost like with the ending of Behead The Prophet (No Lord Shell Live) from Legion. Evidences like these are found throughout the album. The lyrics are pretty much a mix of the old "Satan, Satan, Satan" thing and subjects dealing with the corruption of Christainity and religion. Much more like Once Upon The Cross. All and all, it is an album for the true Deicide die-hards and as well as an album that reconciles with fans that the band lost because Insinerehym and In Torment In Hell.
