Morbid Angel, "Heretic" Morbid Angel
Heretic
Earache Records
2003
This is a Morbid Angel record, so by all counts the last thing it is going to do is suck. But, as far as being a top notch Morbid Angel record, that is a battle all but lost. Let me rant: first off, WHAT THE FUCK is wrong with Trey Azagthoth? I read liner notes, I don't know if you...

Heretic
Earache Records
2003
Morbid Angel are on the rebound. Operating as a three piece for the first time since "Covenant", and with Steve Tucker once again handling bass and vocals after a short 'sabbatical', Morbid Angel have written their best batch of songs in a long, long time. Gone are the droning sections that go nowhere, and roaring back to the fold like...

Heretic
Earache Records
2003
No history lesson is necessary when introducing Morbid Angel. On the band's 2003 release, Heretic, we see the music moving forward in a straight line, as the whole disc is pretty much the same, quality death metal as always.

Blessed Are the Sick
Earache Records
1991
Let's just assume you know all about "Blessed Are the Sick" by now, and I don't have to tell you what it sounds like and how influential, important and special it stands in the history of death metal. This review will be a little different, because this album was my christening to all that is truly heavy. Way back in junior...

Morbid Angel, "Altars of Madness" Morbid Angel
Altars of Madness
Earache Records
1989
The first official release from Morbid Angel was - and is still - fast, vicious, and catchy. Even though most of the Morbid Angel trademarks were established on "Altars of Madness", there were still some rather friendly riffs that seem almost happy. There are several big choruses to latch on to, some sing-along vocal chants and plenty of air guitar...
