MORBID ANGEL - HERETIC (EARACHE RECORDS)

There's a lead break in the middle of 'Beneath the Hollow' which takes the song on two different paths while still maintaining the essence of its core. And it is this uniqueness that has catapulted MA into the major league with this crowning release, giant steps forward from their mildly disappointing last album, 'Gateways to Annihilation'. The sound on this album is incredible; it is Death Metal, but almost futuristic Death Metal. And it makes tracks like 'Praise the Strength', the eerie 'Place of Many Deaths' and 'Stricken Arise' in particular sound years ahead of their time.
Make no mistake, in a genre bursting with brutally talented bands Morbid Angel are the undisputed Kings of Death Metal.

Evil or Very Mad

After Eric Rutan Steve Tucker left, things weren't looking up for Morbid Angel, but fortunately Steve is back in the fold and Morbid Angel are back with something only they could create.
Despite the somewhat thin sounding self-production job, this album is filled with enough jaw-dropping musicianship to make a great death metal album.
Let's face it, Trey and co. have more talent in their pinkies than most death metal bands have in their entire bodies.

A nice addition is the hilarious "drum check" track, which is obviously an answer to all those claiming Morbid Angel uses 'fake programmed drums"
