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...

Being a longtime Morbid Angel fan, and seeing the band several times with both lineups over the years (as well as Jared from Hate Eternal doing vocals RIP) I have always had a huge amount of respect musically and personally for Trey; hell, i've even played with the Sailor Scouts Quake clan for a while..) I have enjoyed seeing the band evolve from each album and keeping things fresh, but undeniably Morbid Angel. I always liked Steve Tucker and thought he did a great job filling a tough position, but when he left and Vincent stepped back in, I had high hopes like many. Live they once again ravaged through a classic set of all old Morbid Angel and with good energy. Well somewhere along the line, things went bad... very bad. I know from chatting with Trey that he is into a lot of non-metal music, and I respect that, as I am as well, however what he put out here is such a diversion, such a step back, I don't even know how they can slap the Morbid Angel name on it. I would have never expected Trey to let us down like this. We only get about 4 real death metal songs on the thing, and really the only good one is Blades for Baal. The rest of the album is not daring, new, innovative or exciting like they claim.. it's just AWFUL. Bad and dated electronic beats and horrendous lyrics make this album seem like a bad joke. I maybe would have accepted this as some sort of side project or even an EP.. but 8 years in the making, return album? Shocked at first.. then mad.. now I just think it's kind of funny...is what it is, but I refuse to buy into this. I refuse to support this and it's a shame that the band is calling out their fans that have negative reactions to to this album, saying the real fans will understand this.. well.. I guess i'm not a real fan anymore, but I will never stop listening to A-H.
