I get the feeling that people will be far too kind to this new album with Morbid Angel being a legacy act at this point, and the fact that the new albums isn't 'Illud...' At least that album, for all it's faults, was not purely paying fan service. I get the impression a passable DM album will be enough to satisfy most.

If Morbid Angel don't deliver a ''come back'' now, they'll probably never will, right? They better get this one right.


Yeh that line stood out to me too. It's a bit worrying really as the guitar work is the main reason to listen to M.A.

Chinese: For some yes, but M.A fans are quite picky. I don't believe a 3/5 will be enough at this point for anyone that isn't a diehard fan.

Their last really good album was Formulas, but even if you think it's Gateways, that album is now 17 years old.

That's my point. Should anyone really expect something quality out of them at this point in the game? It's either going to stray too far from their core sound, or it's going to be a cookie cutter version of it. The track record isn't too good for metal bands this far into their careers.

This is what I'm expecting. I'd love to be proven wrong, but I've got the idea MA are pretty much finished at this point.

Not that I could really blame them, even if they tried hard. I can think of plenty of other bands that delivered a come back to a certain degree that just made me want to spin their classic stuff instead.

Nobody in their right mind is expecting greatness from them at this point.

As Chinese alluded to above, few metal bands release truly great albums in middle age. Monotheist and Colored Sands style albums are the exceptions that prove the rule. They don't come around often and we should be grateful when they do.

In the case of Morbid Angel, the game has changed too much in recent times for them to truly impress like they once did. The most we can reasonably expect is a pretty good album that highlights their strengths and uniqueness without truly excelling. In other words, a solid 3.5-4/5. But frankly, I don't think M.A are even capable of that at this point, although I'd love to be proven wrong.

It'll be a fuck-off, brutal DM album. Just to get rid of the stench of Illud...I'll certainly buy it, I'm not sure how often I'll play it. I'd really love it to be brilliant

Currently reviewing it.
I'm not going into details, but I will say this.
I've listened to it three or four times already and I won't be stopping any time soon.

That's certainly encouraging Spiny.

I've read three or four glowing reviews, genuinely excited now.

Yeah, the reviews I've read sound very encouraging. Can't wait for this now.

Don't think so as it's not appeared on any sites I use.

I haven't found it either.

You guys still search for leaks? I tend to just wait for youtube uploads.

It is too stripped back a record. They have just made an album that is straight up DM and although has some obvious MA edges it is still just an average DM record. Sonics are hardly there and the production is too restraining. I wanted to enjoy it more than I actually did.

The songs aren't memorable either, which has been an ongoing problem for decades.

It's a decent album, but it isn't too exciting.

Agreed, only "Garden of Disdain" stands out as being memorable. For a mid-tempo grinding affair it is far from remarkable though.

It's a classic DM tune full stop. Not disagreeing, just adding to your point. That whole album has such a fantastic sense of groove. Never seen anybody else big up that album at all.

I'm personally surprised by just how much I love this new Morbid Angel album.

Domination is easily my favourite MA album.
