Buffalo News reports that two members of the Florida death metal band DEICIDE were arrested at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge when they were found with drugs and weapons in a mobile home they were driving here from Canada, state police said.
Full story here.
As far as I know, only Eric Hoffman is a member of Deicide. Benajmin T. Boynton is not a member of the band; I assume he’s a driver or roadie of some sort. I’ve read other reports on bulletin boards that say lead singer Glenn Benton was in another car and was not held by police, but I can’t find any confirmation of that on the band’s web site.
Deicide has described itself as “Demons from Hell sent here by Satan himself. They are the most satanic evil death metal Band in the world.”, but in recent years they seem to have mellowed out a bit. Glenn Benton did not actually follow through on his claim that he was going to kill himself when he was 33, and after it was revealed in an interview in Metal Maniacs that he lives in a gated community in Florida, I guess the band figured they needed a new way to get their “evil” reputation back. The band has a new album out soon on Earache Records, and I suppose this will only help publicity. Hopefully, no one will go to jail for this, the new album does well, and the guard at the front gate of Glenn’s neighborhood still allows his bandmates to visit him.Powered by Sidelines
