BITE SIZED: Morbid Angel - Illud Divinum Insanus
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
