It's been roughly fifteen years since original Deicide (and current Amon) guitarist Eric Hoffman parted ways with the death metal band, however, time has apparently done little to heal his wounds. In a recent, since-deleted Facebook post, Hoffman went off on Deicide frontman Glen Benton (something he's apparently done before), calling him a "scum fuck" and threatening to "kick [his] ass" to the degree that his "head will spin around like the fucking exorcist." MetalSucks obtained a screenshot (see below) of his barely cogent rant, which reads as follows:
"If I deicide/Amon Eric Hoffman stop death metal, it was lack of support. Last Amon album released was out of my own pocket.. I will collect what has been rightfully owned and that scum fuck Glen and the Turtles, they only care about themselves. I will never stop death metal and yes we will kick your ass Glen any time any place. I will collect my money clearly fraud scum fuck. You say gloves are off your better put some on, the anger in me, your head will spin around like the fucking exorcist, you know where I live, welcome anytime collecting all my merch for royalties for 20 years and royalties for 13 on scars believe me I will not let you get away with this, we will meet again, anger is building and has it's vengeance. Yes again he was hired I drew the logo found the name. that's why I use his name Amon. fucking prick."As MetalSucks points out, Benton has addressed Hoffman's vitriol before, saying this on the "Into The Combine Metal Podcast' last year:
"Every time we do a record, I guess [Eric] loses his mind over there and he can't handle hearing us proceeding without them. It's been what — 14, 15 years since those two departed, and they did one shitty album and tried ripping off the fans, charged them for videos and bullshit like that. And then from there, they've done two shitty shows here in the state of Florida, and from what I was told, they almost canceled those. So their track record speaks for itself. Our track record speaks for itself. When you don't have the original singer, then you are the official cover band. You wanna make yourself look even more stupid than you already do, by all means, go ahead."
