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.

...it just isn't that good. If you're reading this, you know by now that half of this album is way-out-of-left-field, industrial-sounding stuff that is barely listenable (even if you like that type of music). The other half is decent, not great, death metal that feels more like a logical next step from "Domination": Existo Vulgore, Nevermore, and Blades For Baal - all of which are ok, but nowhere near what this band is capable of. To put out an experimental and uneven album like this after a decade and a half long wait though, is a tremendous disappointment. Experimenting with industrial music didn't work out well for Glenn Danzig in 1995, and it doesn't work out well for Morbid Angel now.
