Later they were joined by Glen Benton (vocals, bass) - a man on his forehead which was burned by the inverted cross. At the concerts of this type appeared in a flak jacket, and on stage in front of him ran bloody pig. Lyrics were under a group name ( "Deicide" means deicide). Not surprisingly, enraged churchmen fought against every possible way to concerts these "messengers of Satan". By 1990, in Benton and company in the hands of the couple have demos, with which they managed to interest executives "Roadrunner records", to conclude an "Deicide" contract.
