1.0 out of 5 stars I'm embarrassed for them June 6, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
When I hear this disc, I cringe for Morbid Angel like I cringe for Rebecca Black when I hear "Friday." Only it's worse this time because she's just some kid making a fool of herself, and this is a veteran band with lots of talent.

The problem is NOT that it steps outside of death metal boundaries. I listen to everything from Incantation to Radiohead to Aphex Twin to the Beatles. I don't need music to be DM to like it, but I do need it to be good music. That's the problem: the so-called "experimentation" on this disc is amateur and repetitive 90's industrial-101. Out of respect for the band that brought us Covenant, I've listened to Illud 4 times now, and it's just not growing on me. The production on the disc is very good, no complaints there.

To me, the only tracks worth repeated listening are Existo Vulgore and Nevermore. Reviewers talk up Blades for Baal, but I think they are just latching on to it because at least it's a death metal song. I think it's pretty mediocre.

Even if you tolerate the music on the remaining tracks, you're going to have to deal with some really cheesy lyrics. I realize that "Shub Niggurath" or "Azazel" are just as imaginary as "Destructos"... but c'mon.. "Destructos"?? There's a difference. Several of the songs appear to be boasting about themselves, as is common in hip-hop circles. Radikult specifically talks about how "hard core" and "radical" they have been since 1989, and of course there's the painfully self-referential "I am Morbid." You could say that hymns to Ancient Ones are a different kind of silly, but at least there is some esoteric value in that, and regardless I'd take them over the Illud material any day of the week.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lady Morbid Ga Ga Manson Zombie 5000 June 6, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Morbid Angel may as well change their name to Fallen Angel.
Now!!!
Before any of my fellow Morbid fans crucify me for this review, let me say this.
I've been a fan since "Altars".
When I was a teen it was all about Slayer and Metallica, Megadeth and Testament, Possessed, etc...
Then I heard "A Skull Full of Maggots" from Cannibal Corpses "Eaten Back to Life" album.
Cannibal along with Deicide, Morbid Angel and Obituary turned me into a death metal head for life.
So it is with great sadness that I write this review...
Like all of you I was bummed when David Vincent left and was equally psyched when he rejoined only to wait....and wait...and wait...for the new album.
And wait we did fellow Morbid's...
Waited....for NOTHING.
I usually don't take this track by track but in this case it's almost a must.
All the complete songs are now on Youtube.
Here is my take on what is Morbid's "St. Anger",
Their "Unspoken King".

"Omni Portens" opens the album with a cringeworthy version of "Doomsday Celebration" from "Blessed Are the Sick".
Feeble and worthless and embarrassing.
We then get to "Too Extreme!"
The title alone makes me want to cry.
We're treated to a song that sounds like a rip off of "Whoomp there it is".
"Whoomp too extreme"
"Whoomp too extreme"
Pathetic.
Up next is "Existo".
More like classic Morbid but utterly yawn inducing.
"Blades for Baal" is next and is actually quite good.
Not a classic Morbid tune but passable.
Sadly the trend of classic Morbid does NOT continue as "I Am Morbid" is up next.
Lyrics include..."I'm morbid, and sordid"....how poetic (insert deliberate sarcasm).
Another embarrassing waste of disc space.
Next...

2.0 out of 5 stars Hopefully This Album Won't Destroy Their Legacy August 17, 2011
By Sarah
Format:Audio CD
Well, even with the aid of the hubble telescope, I wouldn't have seen this one coming.

First, I'll just inform the reader that I've been a fan of the band since the mid-ninties, and have found material of worth on all their prior albums, even those that were criticised heavily by other fans of the band. For instance, I am quite fond of Domination, and believe Heretic has its fair share of redeeming moments.

This album is different, however. Having been a fan for so long, I am predisposed to having a favourable opinion of them, and I can honestly say that I have given this album "a chance". I feel that saying this album is good would be a insult to a band capable of so much better and would be diminishing the gems they have released in the past.

This album marks the band's foray into other, quite distant, genres of music on the one hand, while being a restatement of the old on the other. Often you end up with a conflation of the two which, quite frankly, just sounds odd. Perhaps what is most astounding, however, is how a band which has displayed such awesome technical music in the past can botch writing simple nu metal songs.

Anyhoo..

The problem with the album is that the best of it is only quite good whereas the worst of it is very much sub-par (I could use harsher langauge here but my love of their old material prevents it). I know many critics of the critics of this album are throwing around condescending terms like "narrow-minded" and so on, but I don't think the fans displeasure can be attributed to this.
