To begin, perhaps, it is necessary from the cover of the given plate, executed by the well-known artist Trevor Brown, a very talented and versatile schedule, known for works not only with heavy bands, but also with many electronic collectives. The work turned out to be very lively and emotional, and Glen Benton-vocals / bass himself, this bearer of painful visions, was very pleased with Trevor's vision, so clearly portraying his idea. Speaking of the idea. From the point of view of a pro-Christian philistine (I'm not talking about Christians as such), the above-mentioned visual series is an extreme degree of barbaric cruelty, inhumanity and blasphemy. And it is this visualization, as well as songs with the names "Kill The Christian", etc., that prevent many reviewers from objectively assessing not only this album, but all creativity of DEICIDE in general ... As for the musical side, Here the group showed itself at the height. The crazy possession of the release of "Legion" on "Once Upon The Cross" has found a clear form. Now this is a projectile that rushes right into the face of the Christian God! The rhythm section was not as chaotic as before, but more accurate and powerful, thanks to the amazing work of this demonic sticker - Steve Asheim. The guitars of the Hoffman brothers [Eric Hoffman & Brian Hoffman] are quick and technical (there were ...), and Glen's vocals are unique and cruel ... It's worth mentioning the heart-wrenching intro (taken, by the way, from the incomparable film "The Last Temptation of Christ" by genius Martin Scorsese ), At which Jesus in despair exclaims: "Father, why did you leave me?". He anticipates misfortune and, of course, his misfortune is DEICIDE!
