Former DEICIDE guitarist Eric Hoffman has blasted band’s frontman Glen Benton in a new since-deleted Facebook post.
He wrote: “I respect my fans, I love my fans, most people can’t say that without them I’m nothing without them. After what happened when Glen Benton f*cking took scars royalties for 20 years and all DEICIDE merchandise I will find you and hunt you down like the animal you are.
“I have no label and did my last album for the fans out of my own savings and will do it again with without label.

Unbelievable I am AMON suck it Glen we will meet again.”
In 2019 Facebook post, Hoffman challenged Benton to a physical confrontation, writing at the time: “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 f*ck Glen and the Turtles, they only care about themselves.
