BITE SIZED: Morbid Angel - Illud Divinum Insanus

Occasionally, I won't have the ambition nor the material for a full review, and with this blog I now have the liberty to post BS reviews.  No no, not bullshit, but what I call "bite sized reviews".  Just quick little one offs on shit that I can't squeeze a full sized review out of.  But honestly, for the inaugural BS, it might as well stand for bullshit, as the quick shot I'm taking is at Morbid Angel.

A lot has been said on the internet about this turd.  Basically, all you need to know is that Vincent sounds like shit, the industrial elements are god awfully amateurish ("Too Extreme" features a drum track that may as well be a fucking metronome) and the real death metal tracks are bland and uninspired.  This is a huge letdown no matter how you look at it.  "Blades for Baal" is probably the least retarded track here, but that isn't saying much.  "Existo Vulgore" and "Nevermore" use the exact same riff, "10 More Dead" and "Beauty Meets Beast" go in one ear an out the other, "Profundis, Mea Culpa" is a boring industrial track that Strapping Young Lad ditched back during the recording of their first album, "I am Morbid" is hilarious for the attempt at a cock rock singalong chorus.  The main offenders here are "Destructos Vs. The Earth", which belongs on Duke Lion Fights the Terror and "Radikult" which is... just... fucking "Radikult".  I can't explain the horror that is "Radikult", it's like Marilyn Manson, straight up.  I was baffled when Cryptopsy released "Bemoan the Martyr", but this is something else entirely.  Check it out just for the sheer insanity of it all.

Their next album should be titled Just Kidding
