It's cool to bash Illud Divinum Insanus but I think it deserves a chance. After all, it's just the musicians doing what they wanna do. Put a record out to express themselves. They put everything inside them into this album man, and it really really shows. It may be corny, but listening to the thumping rhythm of Radikult made me want to kill a cop right there and then! I mean it's not like it's making them any money right? David explains it better than I can:
"In a recent interview with AOL's Noisecreep, MORBID ANGEL bassist/vocalist David Vincent stated about "Illud Divinum Insanus", "It's awesome, absolutely awesome . . . We made a masterpiece. I am going to call it that. There is not one bad track on this record. Of course I am going to say that, but I don't normally say such things. It is very unique and very diverse. We didn't go through the normal channels with production, so it's that's much more special because of the decisions we made."
If you really love Morbid Angel, if they've contributed anything at all to your life (they made me open my eyes in a big way), then you'll support this album with all your heart. Even if you dislike parts of it, even if it is a bit shoddy in places. If you don't support them, who will? The album sold 3600 copies in its opening week, 300 less than Heretic. I think we can all band together and really make the next one count for them. Lets vote with our pockets for more classic Death Metal!!!!!!! \m/
So no, no Fuck Morbid Angel. Let Morbid Angel Fuck You.
(I love what Sandoval has contributed to, but the man has really lost it now. Whatever spark he carried in technique or spirit is gone. I have no idea what did it, but I'm going to guess; life. The idea is commendable here, but I question the spirit. Also: lol).
