It's in my top 25 for sure. Just happened to be the first one to pop up on random.

I love Cosmogenesis, It's the first album that I bought from Obscura, but Omnivium captures my interest even more.

Same. Cosmogenesis was the first album I listened to from them and maybe that raised the bar of expectations too high for me. Nevertheless this is a very good album.

Don't you think the bass was more prominent in Cosmogenesis than Omnivium though? It'll be interesting to see how their next album goes with Linus on bass after the departure of JPT.

'The new COB is an album so that Alexi and Co. can be drunk on stage and still play." I couldn't agree more.
I thought "Shovel Knockout" and "Was It Worth It?" were catchy, but the rest of the album blows. I wasn't expecting much though, as Alexi has said many times that he doesn't really care about the old stuff and will never write anything like it again.

This very epic sounding album combines the best of what ICS Vortex is known for. I honestly wouldn't mind if he quit Black Metal all together and just made these style albums. Its so damn good.
Absolutely love this album!!!!!!! It definitely made my year end list. One of the best and most distinctive voices in metal.

Oooooh our first disagreement.

Trust me man, as a guy who works at a radio station with the head guy, who constantly gives me shit for not liking all the different styles of Electronic music. I know the difference between Electronic Music, Dubstep, Drum and Bass, Chill, Electronica, remix, and all the different jive.

But there is dubstep in the new Morbid Angel album.

Having only seen Linus with Obscura, In a live setting Linus is one of the loudest guys on stage. with good reason. Cosmogenesis was definitely more of a bass driven album. Omnivium was more of a band focused album. I think that might be why i dig it more.

It's like I said in the review, it sounds like he wrote it so he can be shitfaced on stage and still play right. I'll still keep checking COB out, but I have no hopes left in the band. Maybe Alexi will get his head out of his ass and realize the music comes first on the next album?

Same here man. Top 30 album for me, if not higher up on the list.

ICS Vortex is one of my favorite singers of all time.I think in Black Metal he is soooooo underused in the bands he's in. This album proves how badass he makes ever band he's apart of.

Man, I don't understand you. It's great to like stuff other than metal. We're all open-minded here. But pretty much your first post here established that you don't even like metal that much anymore. Why join here, then?

Nevertheless, I agree with your complaint. The new Morbid Angel album isn't even remotely dubstep.

I take it you didn't hear the remixes yet?
