Deicide To Be Honored In Tampa Street Naming Ceremony
On November 10th, heavy metal band Deicide will be honored in Tampa, Florida by having a street named after them. The band, long recognized for their humanitarian and philanthropic efforts as well as their massive contribution to the city’s cultural history, will celebrate an honor rarely bestowed upon death metal bands. Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn said in a press conference “Deicide have earned this distinction and I could not be more proud to be part of it. I’ve had a deep appreciation and fondness for their contribution to the arts and culture here in Tampa. Death metal is king and I’ll kill a bitch that refers to it as ‘screamo’ in my town.” Buckhorn personally thanked Glen Benton and Steve Asheim for their generous gifts and contributions to the Helicopters For The Homeless Project. He also thanked Donald Tardy, drummer for Obituary, for his efforts in adopting stray cats. On the following day, Deicide will honor America by singing the national anthem at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ game. Hopefully it will help spur the team onto victory against the San Diego Chargers who may or may not be travelling with their most famous fan, Necrobutcher. We’ll have more on this story after we sort out all of that carnage in the temple of the damned.
