It’s the talk of the metal community. When a popular metal band puts out an album soooo bad, it is made into cult status. Such is the case with Celtic Frost’s 1988 bomb Cold Lake ( when a death metal band tried to turn glam overnight ), or Metallica’s super cheeseball effort “Saint Anger.” Absolutely terrible.
Morbid Angel have always been wickedly evil sounding. But with their new album Illud Divinum Insanus hittting the streets and getting trashed bigtime, I honestly can’t believe they actually put out this industrial programming sound effects pile of doo doo! That’s like Slayer playing Boy George “Karma Chameleon” type music! It was so bad, I thought someone was playing a joke on me! But it was serious. Ouch! There are a few short moments where some cool riffs are happening, but there aren’t many, and when you do finally get one, the recordings sound quality is less than good.
M.A Fan’s are very angry about this and there is much talk on the internet at this terrible change of a perfectly good metal band to a techno-metal turd in the making. One fan slaughtered the album in a youtube.com review, and the band blocked him! A loyal fan of many years. So there you go, you now have “Saint Anger” , “Cold Lake” and now “Illud Divinum Insanus” haunting your dreams. Although I do think Morbid Angel takes # 1 over these three monumental disasters.
Listening to new Morbid Angel is torturous.. It’s like sticking your peter into a blender and turning it on!
