Box looks cool, I'd pay $30 for it, but for the other things. I'm not going to be spending money on this. I'd pay $100 if the box set was Altars themed and had Altars on double gatefold vinyl :)

I'm going to be the guy to say that just because there are shitty songs titles, it doesn't mean the album will be shitty.

Nevermore is a hell of a song, I can't imagine the rest of the album being pure shit just on the speculation of lame song titles.

Well even with Dave's influence on these track titles the album will still be full of Trey's riffs. At the worst it will be on par with Heretic, which I don't think is as bad as people make it out to be.

I wonder how many of these tracks are interludes though.

That was painful to read.

This album sounds all over the place with no central focus. This definitely knocked my expectations down a peg.

I'm sure it will at least be decent and won't absolutely suck, but I doubt it will be a great album based on these impressions.

I lol'd at the comments on the preview page. Guys saying that they "feel like crying" or shit like "R.I.P. Morbid Angel" before they even heard anything. Idk, I guess I just trust them. I'm not gonna cry if they change it up a bit. God forbid they do something "un-tr00." As long as it's good, I don't care. I mean, there's definitely reason for concern, but to say that this is going to be the death of MA is just retarded.

But if it does end up sucking, I'll feel like a moron. :lol:

Some people think that it's going to suck hard, but based on Nevermore and the Tim Yeung drum clinic track that's one great track and one solid track already. I'm sure it will at least be decent. I'll just have to wait and see what these "techno" songs sound like.

Fair enough, though I don't get some of the comments on Youtube bashing it. It's Morbid Angel playing Morbid Angel. What's so bad about that? The only somewhat negative thing I have to say is that I wish David's voice was a bit deeper.

I didn't read the comments, but that's not surprising. The song wasn't awful or anything, and it might grow on me the more I listen to it. It just didn't really catch my attention the way their other material has.

Solid track, it'll probably grow on me after more listens. Some people have been saying that this is going to be the next Unspoken King but all 3 songs that have been released so far (that's including the Tim Yeung drum clinic track) are solid. It definitely won't be terrible (the death metal songs at least).

Not as horrible as I thought it would be. It's still kind of weak (imo) compared to most of MA's other songs, reminds me of Domination, but the production is much better than Heretic's. I can actually hear the bass in some parts! Dave's vocals are probably the weakest part of the song, but I expected that.

Hmm, that remix doesn't give me much hope for the album version.

Also, I realized this from someone pointing it out on Youtube, but David's vocals on this new album are kind of reminiscent of Randy Blythe's.

The riffing is good, not classic level or anything spectacular for Morbid Angel but definitely solid. The solo is cool, but almost sounds like it wasn't given enough time to finish developing. The drumming is par for the course, nothing really stands out other then how blatantly triggered they are. But they had to reform the band with Dave Vincent. Dave Vincent murders the track. He seriously sounds like shit. I can do way deeper growls and I can't even grow a beard. Calling them growls is a stretch, it sounds more like harsh thrash vocals.It's like he isn't even trying. They should have kept Steve Tucker. It's (probably) not going to be the techno that kills this album for me, but Dave Vincent.

Also fuck Combichrist. I bet the reason we get them doing the remix instead of somebody like Laibach(:rocker:) is that Dave Vincent's shitty mallgoth EBM/whatever band associated with them in the past. Combichrist suck.

Listening to the samples: Nevermore: yeah it's not a localized problem, Dave Vincent fucking sucks now. This one sounds even less like growling and more like slightly harsh thrash singing. Destructos: I seriously hope the reason it sucks so bad is that Combichrist took a steaming electronic shit all over it. The stupid Combichrist remix doesn't even have a cool beat, it has something limp and vaguely upbeat that sounds like it was shit out after ten minutes on a keyboard.

I haven't given up hope for the album yet. I've only listened to a couple songs, and I don't mind either of them.

However, they've been getting so much hate, I doubt the album will do well. I'm sure they'll play a couple of the new songs on their tour for the album, then do what Metallica did w/ St Anger, Deicide did w/ Till Death Do Us Part, etc. : Completely stop playing anything from the album only a year after it's release.

I hope that's what they do. The two songs that are out aren't particularly bad, they're just rather monotonous. The riffs are rather typical and the choruses are just the song title repeated multiple times. David Vincent's vocals seem to generate a lot of hate, but I think they're alright. They're nothing special though, and I liked Tucker's a lot more. Tim Yeung does well on the drums, but plenty of people have complained that they sound clicky; that has been a problem with Pete as well though, so it's nothing new here.

One thing I wonder though is how much different this album would have been if Steve Tucker was still in the band. The techno-esque influences are obviously brought on from Mr. Vincent. I mean... look what he was busy with when he wasn't in the band:

I hope that's what they do. The two songs that are out aren't particularly bad, they're just rather monotonous. The riffs are rather typical and the choruses are just the song title repeated multiple times. David Vincent's vocals seem to generate a lot of hate, but I think they're alright. They're nothing special though, and I liked Tucker's a lot more. Tim Yeung does well on the drums, but plenty of people have complained that they sound clicky; that has been a problem with Pete as well though, so it's nothing new here. All in all, the only thing that I really enjoyed on the two songs are the solos.

Yeah, his other band is trash.

You're right, they're decent but very similar. I haven't checked the samples on iTunes yet, so I can't judge those. Whether or not the album is great or it sucks, I just hope they do a legit tour!

PS. Yes, if they're the best 2 songs on the album, it's an ABSOLUTE failure.

Yep. I was seriously wondering if it was some kind of joke. I would have been fine if they wrote another Heretic or Domination, but words cannot describe how shitty this album is going to be. I'm really hoping that J will be a return to form, assuming that they write more material.

Honestly, I only feel this way about Radikult. Too Extreme, Destructos, and I Am Morbid sound strange but I can give them a chance. And call me crazy, but the Destructos remix is kind of cool. I don't know why but it doesn't really bother me much.

And the rest of the album apart from the experimental stuff sounds decent/good to me. This album isn't going to be groundbreaking for me and I'm sure it will still be my least favorite by a mile, but I think I'm going to be able to enjoy it.

And all this comparison to The Unspoken King and St. Anger is unfounded to me. At least this album has some redeemable qualities to it (Nevermore and Existo Vulgore are great songs to me).

The Unspoken King and St. Anger have no redeemable qualities to them whatsoever.

It'll still be a major disappointment compared to their back catalog, but it's not the "worst thing that ever happened to metal" that people are making it out to be

If you don't mind it, that's cool. I'm glad some people will enjoy the album to some extent. If the whole album was like "Nevermore" and "Existo Vulgoré" I would be alright. I didn't really like those songs a lot, but they weren't terrible by any means. "Blades of Baal" seems to be the only other song on the album that will interest me, and from what I heard it was written by their other guitarist. The samples of the other songs sounded like garbage to me.

But like I've said in previous posts, at this point I'm not even interested in hearing the album, although I will still give it a chance. I'm just curious how the band will react to the poor reception the album will get.

They're getting hammered pretty hard. They even had to make a post on their official facebook saying that people flaming them would get banned from the page.

And the general consensus seems to be that this is worse than The Unspoken King or comparable to The Unspoken King.

And this all just based on the samples. It'll get worse once the full album is out I suppose.

Sounds more like Risk than Anger. And it's certainly no Unspoken King.

It's definitely their Risk. They have some ideas and they can still play competent death metal, but it's going to be a real challenge for people to actually behind this new direction and it's pretty much dance music in a lot of the tracks, while the straight-up death metal tracks at best sound like secondary Vader with the vocals.

The samples of the "out there" material is actually starting to grow on me, well except for Radikult, still can't wrap my head around that one. I like what's going on in Too Extreme though, the lyrics are goofy but the song itself sounds interesting.

I think given some time I'll be able to appreciate this album for what it is and I'm looking forward to hearing the whole thing. Who knows, I might even like the rest of Radikult, it is 7 minutes long.

It seems that most people think their new death metal stuff is average/bad anyway so maybe it was smart for them to at least try something new. Based on the reactions it seems like people would've just written off an album of all death metal material as mediocre anyway, just like how most people did with Heretic (which is a shame because I think that's a great record in its own right). It's not like after 20 years they're going to be able to match the likes of Altars or Covenant and I wouldn't expect them to.

I think it's funny how crazy people are going over this. I don't mean the people who are saying it's bad, I mean people who are actually saying that they're never going to listen to Morbid Angel again or that they've lost all respect for Trey or that this is the worst thing to ever happen to music.

The techno songs (Too Extreme, Profundis - Mea Culpa) actually sound pretty cool to me and I think I will like them.

It's the hard rock-ish / industrial songs (I Am Morbid, Destructos, Radikult) that will be iffy for me.

And the rest of the album minus the intro sounds like standard Morbid Angel.

05-31-2011, 09:46 PM
Leaked. I normally don't download leaks but since I already preordered this and given the bad buzz around this album I couldn't resist.

Here's my track-by-track initial impressions:

-Omni Potens - This is a far cry from the intros / interludes from past albums. And it doesn't flow well into Too Extreme! at all. It would've made more sense to have this lead into Existo Vulgore.

-Too Extreme! - I thought this song had a chance of being good but boy was I wrong. Horrible stop-starts and horrible drum sound along with medicore riffing. And horrible lyrics, which will be a recurring theme for this album.

-Existo Vulgore - I've listened to this song many times already and I think it's pretty good.

-Blades for Baal - Ugh, this one underwhelmed. I'm not really digging the riffs on this one and the drumming is pretty bland. I thought this had a chance to be better than Existo Vulgore and Nevermore but based on this first listen it's not.

-I Am Morbid - This one is surprisingly not bad. Morbid Angel does arena rock and getting past the name and lyrics it's actually rather enjoyable.

-10 More Dead - This one is pretty decent, it has a nice groove to it and I like the solo. Except Dave nearly ruins it with his vocal delivery.

-Destructos Vs. the Earth / Attack - :zzz: Holy fuck is this one boring. The remix is better than this. And the Attack part is pointless.

- Nevermore - I've been listening to this track for a year or so now and I like the studio version.

-Beauty Meets Beast - This one's decent but kinda plods along. I liked the sample for it but the rest of the song doesn't really offer much more.

-Radikult - What is this Genitorturers B-Side doing on the new Morbid Angel album? The sample actually showcased the worst part of the song really. It doesn't really get worse than that and there are actually some decent solos trapped within the shit. Because of some semi-decent soloing this is actually better than Destructos, which offers nothing really.

-Profundis - Mea Culpa - Another song I thought that had a little potential based on the samples but this one also falls flat. I don't see myself listening to this one much at all in the future.

So yeah :eyes:, I'm feeling either 2/5 or 2.5/5 right now. And that is a real bummer.

I do have one point to make, though. Those of you who are saying "R.I.P. Morbid Angel" really need to shut the fuck up and grow up. Just because they released one shitty album doesn't mean they're dead forever. They decided to experiment, and it didn't work for them. Look, the band isn't oblivious to the radical backlash. They're quite aware of it. I'm sure their next album will be back to the good stuff.

10 More Dead is definitely a good song. I've liked it ever since I heard the rough version of it from Tim Yeung's drum clinic. But Dave lays down some of his worst vocals of the album on the song. The chorus vocals are lame as fuck. I like all the riffs and solo though.

And what stuff did you hear? This album deserves most of the hate it's receiving. Of course, as it has been pointed out, there are people that go too far and make some pretty obnoxious comments, but that hasn't been happening here. There are very few redeeming qualities on the album. Even the death metal tracks are nothing special. They have their moments, but generally they feel very uninspired. I mean, "Nevermore" and "Existo Vulgoré" are almost interchangeable, and the riffs just aren't there. I wouldn't say this is another The Unspoken King, but it's pretty damn bad.

Some people are going even further than that, saying that it's the worst album ever. Honestly, the death metal tracks aren't that bad. They are pretty bland and uninspired compared to the rest of their catalog, but they aren't insultingly bad I don't think. I like the death metal tracks on this album after giving them a fair number of listens. I'm sure songs like Existo Vulgore or Blades for Baal will be better live as well just like Nevermore is.

The death metal songs on this album are more like Death Magnetic than St. Anger if you were going to make a comparison to Metallica.

Honestly I really wonder what people would be saying without the industrial tracks. I mean, people would still be giving this very low marks because the horrible lyrics and spirit of the album would still be there along with the underwhelming songwriting, but I don't think anyone would be partaking in the hyperbole they are now. I'd say without the industrial tracks I would probably give this a 5 or 6/10.

It makes me wonder if those May 21st douchebags weren't "almost" right after all, and the world's actually going to end soon.

If so, at least I got to hear the new Origin once before it's all over.

Well, the Opeth show I'm going to is on October 21 (Judgement Day), so I hope God is an Opeth fan and postpones the Judgement until they finish their set.

You know Morbid Angel had terrible lyrics as far back as 1993.

"To fucked human shit, I shout blasphemy!"
"Gene dead from birth God's holy fuck"
"Human shit, waste begone from my earth!"

All in the same song, it's as if Vincent suddenly discovered four letter words. :tp:

But on the current subject, I remember hearing that song for the first time and then three minutes in I think "this is almost over, right?" then I look at the tracklisting and find out it's 8 FUCKING MINUTES LONG!!!

I would love to have those three lines in a loop over a majority of the lyrics on the entire new album.

Blades for Baal, Nevermore, and maybe Existo Vulgore are the only songs that come close to decent lyrics.

And the lyrics were something that vastly improved during the Steve Tucker era I think, though I do like most of the lyrics on the early Vincent albums, even Domination.

But on the current subject, I remember hearing that song for the first time and then three minutes in I think "this is almost over, right?" then I look at the tracklisting and find out it's 8 FUCKING MINUTES LONG!!!Interesting points. I'll certainly stipulate that MA has been CAPABLE of producing terrible lyrics, that's for sure. Even the name of the track you referenced is horrible. On the other hand, we certainly can't ignore the sheer poetry demonstrated in lyrics like these:

Ghouls! Attack the church!
Crush the holy priest!
Turning the cross towards hell,
Writhe in Satan's flames!

Crush the priest!
The feeble church!

Dead! Your god is dead!
Fools! Your god is dead!
Useless prayers of lies,
Behold Satan's rise!

Crush the priest!
The feeble church!
The family of dog!
Lust upon my altar!

Demons! Attack with hate!
Satan in the fires of hell awaits!
Death against you all!
God, hear my death call!

So I would say that maybe arguing whether the lyrics should be good or bad at this point is somewhat pointless. As you point out, the music is just awful...and it goes on for what seems like an eternity's worth of pure torture.

I'm pretty sure he's singing "killer cult", not "kill a cop".I think you're actually right. However, the music is so damn bad on that track that it's pointless what the lyrics are...Morbid Angel has experimented on this track and a few others, and it has all gone horribly, horribly wrong. That's the true punch line here, and it's a fucking travesty.

Finally listened to this. I'm not really a Morbid Angel fan (haven't really checked them out besides Altars...sorry) and I also listen to a lot of industrial so I guess I have that unbiased factor. Well....it sucks. It comes off as so cheesy, I wonder how um "awkward" it must have been writing this when they basically have "best dm album of all time" status.

I liked Destructos, I mean that does sound like it would be a one hit wonder fun song live

Alan from Primordial made a great point about this record's place compared to other letdowns. Cold Lake, while terrible, at least was relevant for the time period it was in. He compared it to St. Anger but at least for that they were attempting to be relevant and cash in on the Nu-metal phase. This just seems like something really bad from the mid-90's that would have never been released then if it wasn't from a band like Morbid. That said, I don't think in general it's as bad as everyone else is saying it is, but it's definitely the biggest letdown since The Unspoken King.

I'm starting to dig Radikult a little bit for some fucked up reason. I don't know why but that song cannot get out of my head. It doesn't invoke the same type of emotions that listening to metal does for me though. It's more like it's just entertaining to me for how ridiculous it is. If this would've been a bonus track or if they would've released this along with the other weird songs on an EP and kept them out of the central focus of the album I could've appreciated these songs for the laughs.

To be honest that song isn't that bad to me, aside from the overly cheesy lyrics and attitude. It's not Morbid Angel but it's a pretty decent song, and the solo is pretty cool. That song will suck live though just because nobody is going to be into it. The crowd will be dead every time they play this.

I'm gonna be honest, this album isn't that bad. It's not Morbid Angel and i'm sure I would hate it if I was a die hard fan but I can't help but laugh at songs like Destructos and Radikult. Most of the album is pretty solid death metal. The only songs I really didn't like was Too Extreme! and Profundis.

Most of the album is pretty solid death metal. The only songs I really didn't like was Too Extreme! and Profundis.

This is a conclusion that I have come to as well within the past week. When I first heard the album I hated it all (except Nevermore which I had listened to a lot already), but I wasn't really paying attention to the standard songs in the middle of the album because the shock of the industrial tracks was racking my brain. Once that shock had worn away though and I actually gave the other tracks some attention I found them to actually be pretty decent.

The problem is "pretty decent" is not what I was expecting from this album, and I guess that was my fault for having such high expectations. Though I am fascinated with Radikult for how ridiculous it is. I've listened to that song many more times than I should have, but I just can't divert my attention from it.

As for the other "industrial" tracks, Too Extreme has a few good moments, but the start-stops bother me, the drum sound is horrible, and of course the lyrics are very off putting. Destructos just sounds like pure filler to me, nothing remarkable about it and it has no memorable riffs. And Profundis also is pretty filler/unneccessary composition for the most part. When I first heard the sample for Profundis I thought it had a Hatework vibe to it before the weird industrial noise kicked in.

David Vincent's response to the Hitler video:

Morbid Angel frontman David Vincent has exclusively spoken to Terrorizer regarding to the somewhat loud response to the death metal legends' new opus, 'Illud Divinum Insanus' - including that Hitler video!

“Obviously, we've had a lot of internal dialogue about this," admits the singer. "My tour manager said, 'Do you wanna see something interesting?', and he brought up the initial reviews of The Beatles' 'Sgt. Pepper...' record. People were calling it a piece of crap and saying it was uninspired, and now it's like, 'Are you fucking kidding me? This is one of their best records!' The old reviews said that it doesn't sound like their old stuff, so this [kind of reaction] is nothing new. I would put this on the same level as what happened to us on 'Blessed Are The Sick' – the only difference is that there wasn't the internet.”

The band have also seen the infamous video in which a subtitled Hitler slates the new album - the band's first for eight years - and even suggests that "Bodycount want their lyrics back".

“It's absolutely hilarious!" David enthuses. "Somebody's spent a lot of time on that – and it wasn't me! But it's great that people are being creative in their response to what we're doing, and it's engaging.”

You can find out if the 'Angel will play any new cuts when they hit this year's Bloodstock festival, taking place at Catton Hall, Derby from August 12-14.

'Illud Divinum Insanus' is out now on Season Of Mist
