Recently unearthed last copies of Morbid Angel's 2003 album 'Heretic' in limited box set format. This version was originally only released to the German market. These are the very last copies of the box set version - when they're gone they're gone! Comes in sturdy clam box housing the limited edition 2CD version of the album with an 18 track bonus disc + exclusive sticker. 14 tracks from the gods of US Death Metal. Morbid Angel have long been acknowledged as the most successful and influential Death Metal act of all time, selling over 1 million records in their career. Recently reunited and touring with the 'classic' line up, the band has generated legions of new fans in the process.

MA have been my favorite band in the world since I first heard them in 1990. Their first few albums were some of the most mind-blowing recordings ever, and established the benchmark that all other extreme metal bands aspired to, but somehow couldn't reach or surpass.....until lately. I've listened to this new album probably 4 times since yesterday, and the bonus disc once. Maybe I should have waiting a few weeks before reviewing it, because every new album this band puts out always sounds weird to me at first, but then over the course of a few weeks it grows on me like a fungus and I become addicted to it. Here's my thoughts right now: It reminds me most of the Formulas...album. The songwriting style on this album sees the band returning to their more chaotic, technical side. If you've followed this band's career as I have, this was to be expected. This band seems to alternate from a chaotic, technical album to a slower, more sludgy one and back again. It seems that Altars..., Covenant, Formulas..., and now Heretic have all had a more up-tempo, whirlwind frenzy mood while Blessed..., Domination, and Gateways... have taken on more of a slimy, creeping pestilence kind of feel. All albums are equally brutal, however, and even the slower albums still contain fast songs here and there, and vice versa. Another reason it reminds me of "Formulas" is because the band is back as a three piece, and they've chosen the end of the album to place a series of soundscapes, drum tracks, and other assorted quirky stuff, just like they did on Formulas. Heretic also has a bonus disc similar to Love of Lava which came bundled with Formulas, and it contains a collection of unmixed Heretic tracks with no vocals on them and some of Trey's guitar solos at the end.Read more ›

I have been M.A. fan since Altars, quite frankly I was losing faith in these guys since Domination. That album,with the exception of a few cuts just lacked something. Formulas was a good album, but it had it's share of bummers as well. Gateways was decent, had a couple of choice numbers but was still below par for these guys. I liked Tucker's vocal work (better than Domination) but I thought he just didn't cut it. Well he changed my mind with Heretic. No more monotone vocals...all the colors from Blessed are back! He did a hell of a job laying down the vocals for this album. Excellent inflections pepper every passage making it one of thier better better vocal albums. The music? What an improvement from the uni-tempo drone of Gateways. All the dynamics are back with musicality that rivals Blessed (my favorite album). The polrythmic riffs are extremely creative and memorable. This is definitely some of Trey's most inspired work, I also love the found tonal attack of his guitar. Pete is at the top of his game also, he hasn't played like this since Covenant. My only quarrel is the lack of bass presence, only a minor quibble. This is Morbid Angels second breath!! They have me eagerly awaiting thier next album instead of dreading it (fearing they would tarnish their rep.). Heretic stands as one Morbid Angel's best albums to absolute brilliant comeback!!!!!

Morbid Angel are about as close to a solid institution as their genre has ever had. Guitarist/leader Trey Azagthoth writes pounding and uncompromising music without making it stale and formulaic. Drummer Pete Sandoval is nothing short of legendary--the best in the business. It says quite a bit about them that their new releases generate a "buzz" at all like this one, especially considering how small a market the extreme metal business is.
Azagthoth's biggest flaw is in his ego. Extraordinary bassist/vocalist David Vincent was forced out of the songwriting equation and soon left the band in the late nineties, which hurt their music. Later, clashes with new bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker caused him to leave the band, and exceptional second guitarist Erik Rutan left for more musical freedom with his own outfit "Hate Eternal." Azagthoth can rail all he likes about how Morbid Angel is "his" band (he's certainly done it enough) but the results of such problems are never good-- one man exerting all the control damages the chemistry in the music.
Azagthoth's excesses are on full display here, but it doesn't destroy the album as it did in "Formulas Fatal to the Flesh." The mix makes the recently re-acquired Tucker's bass barely audible, which was a poor decision, especially if it was the slight to Tucker that it seems to be. The album is short on songs-- only seven or eight real, full ones over the whole of both discs. Azagthoth tries to make up for this in two ways: weak original intrumentals on the first disc, which are pure filler (aside from Sandoval's drum track) and by loading the discs full of self-indulgent bonus tracks of either his solos all by themselves or the songs of the album with the bass and vocals entirely removed.

As a long-time M.A fan (since Blessed), I'm getting kinda hacked off with Morbid. David Vincent brought something to the band that they've been lacking since Domination (and probably Covenant), and that is Fury. Rage. Anger. All the things that makes Death Metal what it is.
Don't get me wrong, I think Tucker is the only consolation on this CD coz he's the only person that seems pissed off. The drums, although they are amazingly played as always, are lazy in feel; Trey Azagthoth has totally lost his essence these days - bear in mind that he was the twisted genius that wrote their first 3 albums - and comes away with some good solos, but no real great riffs/hooks, and where is the bass? Vox are good, but I thought they sounded better on Gateways. As for the bonus tracks? Waste of CD. According to them the track times/lengths are all based on numerology and relate to power. Good for them; they just don't relate to a good listening experience.
So basically - it's alright, but lazy. I'll remain a fan, but I hope that they don't slide any further.
