is it that bad?
Samples of every song.
Here's some quotes from all your favorite heavy metal superstars:
MORBID ANGEL's new album "Illud Divinum Insanus" will be out in less than a week! Needless to say this release is highly anticipated by fans, journalists and musicians alike, so we sent the album to some of the famous names in Metal and asked them what they thought of the seminally influential Extreme Metal act's new opus. Here goes:
"The new Morbid Angel album will cause 3rd World War. After June 7th, the extreme metal scene is never gonna be the same again... And I already can't wait the moment I'll be sitting on my sofa listening to "Illus Divinum Insanus" while the world burns! Ha!" - Nergal, BEHEMOTH
"No other band in the entire Extreme Metal genre but Morbid Angel would have ever dared to make 'Illud Divinum Insanus'. There are going to be quite a few unimaginative underground purists who think they know better what kind of album Morbid Angel should or should not be putting out, but with 'Illud Divinum Insanus' Trey and David prove that they answer to no one but themselves. It is an incredibly well written, performed, recorded and produced record." - Karl Sanders, NILE
"One of the best death metal releases since their last album with Vincent. I'm not too much into the techno bits but I am a dude who will appreciate and respect bands doing new things, progressing... So it's all good. Vincent's vocals of course are still as good as they come. And the riffs are definitely there, Trey always delivers. New drummer is killer too!" - Mikael Akerfeldt, OPETH
"The ultimate voice of death metal is back, as hellish as ever!" - Mikael Stanne, DARK TRANQUILLITY
"Glad to see Morbid Angel are back! We had our share of criticism when we first incorporated electronic elements in our sound and we know it takes courage and passion to follow one's own stream of inspiration. This time the guitar work is more impressive than ever and those 11 songs are a real 'tour de force'. With this new album they're not afraid to take the hit from the more conservative audience but that's what it means to be extreme!" - Vorph, SAMAEL
"Innovation, wits and a feral 'no compromise' attitude is what brands the greatest of bands. 'Illud Divinum Insanus' is all that and a leap further! Hail Morbid Angel!" - Rune "Blasphemer" Eriksen, AVA INFERI, ex MAYHEM
"Morbid Angel still prove they can continue their legacy and deliver their madness with a skill so elite. The metal scene has no choice but to give back the crown to the undisputable kings of death metal! MORBID! MORBID! MORBID!" - Anders 'Blakkheim' Nyström, KATATONIA
"This is Morbid Angel the way I've always loved them: unpredictable, forward-thinking, different and extreme. In one word: unique. If you hoped for a dull repeat of the past, look elsewhere. If you want something modern and daring, 'Illud Divinum Insanus' is the masterpiece only Morbid Angel could dream up. Kick-ass!" - Dirk Verbeuren, SOILWORK
"I'd say it was definitely worth the wait. M.A. do their own thing as always and they are good at it. Vincent growls like a horny moose (meant in a positive way) Trey's weird riffing and songwriting is there and Tim Yeung is simply amazing. Maybe a couple of less appealing experimental tracks but over all true, groovy, crushing, heavy and fast as it should be. Rock on!" - Ola Lindgren, GRAVE
Are these guys getting paid to write such crap? I love Morbid Angel, but this new album is pure shit.
^^^^^ Those quotes are a joke right? Where did you get them from?
New Opeth album cover:
@ the band's faces in the tree. Otherwise an interesting cover. I'm wondering if this'll be real folky considering the name and cover.
Afraid not: http://www.season-of-mist.com/news/morbid-angel-2011-06-01
Also here's Morbid Angels hot new single Radikult:
The faces are off-putting, but aside from that the album art is awesome. Yeah I got a folk/70s vibe from it.
Man, I refuse to believe this. Did they even listen to the fucking album??
yeah, dredg also started with teh odd album cover and it all went downhill from there...
One can only hope it's a joke.
I've heard worse.
Well, yeah....but this is Morbid Angel, and they are taking a huge dump on their legacy. There's progression, regression and taking big dumps on yourself...and this one of them.
I agree there are other more fitting ways of progressing than this, definitely not what I hoped for after 8 years.. There are some moments (Nevermore is a decent song), but still nowhere near as much as I hoped for and the techno tracks give me skin rashes..
It's a wasted opportunity, I thought Trey was a more creative and inventive musician than just taking all the obvious, unsubtle elements of electronic (quasi-industrial and EBM shit) and mixing them with unimpressive 3rd rate death metal. I haven't heard all the samples but I don't even give a toss after hearing 30 seconds or so already.
Apparently there will be no death vocals on the new Opeth. It is supposed to be essentially a 70's Prog album.
New Amorphis is great! Just came out here in the US. Strong songs, a little more folky than Skyforger.
Also, the new minisite for the new Steven Wilson solo record just came out
I quite enjoyed that. Hopefully it is different from Insurgentes.
New Morbid angel is so fucking bad; it's getting the worst reviews I've seen since St. Anger haha
And by the looks of things not only this album, sounds like growls are history when it comes to Opeth.
"The frontman also said that hes been tired of extreme metal since the 90s, but could not explain why. At this point in time, as far as Opeth is concerned, the death metal sound is over."
More growls, fuck yeah. The new Amorphis is great, at first I thought it sounded exactly like Skyforger, but after many listens it's far more varied and has so much going on it's amazing. The keyboards have an awesome 70's sound (similar to Am Universum) and the guitars too, psychedelic and folky at times.
Is this really true though? I haven't even seen it on blabbermouth news, and no doubt that kind of shit would be all over it.
Who really knows? I think its true.
