Eighth & highly anticipated studio album of the Legendary Death Metal band. First album in nearly 15 years with original vocalist David Vincent.

Customer Reviews

Never in my life as a death metal fan would I have imagined that Morbid Angel would fall so hard.
Duckman
Six good(not great) songs is all that is to be found on this album and the rest of the songs are just plain BORING, POORLY WRITTEN and have IDIOTIC LYRICS.
Jeffrey Lebowski
When you buy a Morbid Angel album, you should never have to listen through the songs beforehand; you know what you are getting.

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.

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...

Was it brain damage, insanity or just being completely out of though with their fan base that led to the creation of this abomination? We'll probably never know. One thing is for certain, Morbid Angel has "lost it" and is adrift in a quagmire of their own making. Between the infantile, chest thumping, lyrics that come "cut and pasted" from any generic hip-hop record, the banal out of place industrial / techno elements, to the utter lack of enthusiasm evident in the metal sounding songs this album fails to provide any positive aspect.
Between Immolation and Deicide, Morbid Angel were one of my favorite death metal bands. Sadly the use of past tense was necessary and correct. I harbor feelings of betrayal, shame and disgust just like I do towards Metallica for their sell-out, cash grab attitudes. What is truly sickening, as with Metallica, is that it casts an emotional stain that hangs like a putrid miasma when listening to their back catalog. You know that the old material that you're currently listening to is excellent and written with talent and dedication but you can not force the ugly image out of your mind of what the once great project has now become in the present.

Before I kick off this review for the album, I'd like to say that while Morbid Angel certainly wasn't a perfect band ("Domination" and "Heretic" were pretty mediocre albums, but the rest ranged from really good to godlike), I felt for many years a certain comfort that Morbid Angel would never release such mainstream drivel that would be on par with such pathetic artists like Marilyn Manson and Disturbed. After the disappointment that was "Heretic," the death metal community rejoiced once David Vincent came back in the band and we all waited for the ultimate comeback album from such a huge name in death metal. It was a long wait, and all we got out of that wait was one of the most laughable albums ever released by a veteran death metal band. It was eight years between "Heretic" and "Illud Divinum Insanus," and given how horribly lazy and awful this album sounds, it's like they waited until the night before the album's launch date to make the album.

BAD EXPERIMENTATION

Experimentation has been a signature quality for Morbid Angel since they released the godlike "Altars of Madness," and while some of it went a little south, the band's past mistakes look like mosquito bites compared to this curse upon the death metal community. This time around, Morbid Angel thought it would be a great idea to mix metal with industrial music. This isn't breaking any new ground as there was quite a few metal bands that did this in the early 90's (most notably Fear Factory's "Fear is the Mindkiller" remixes and Godflesh's "Slavestate").
