Morbid Angel premiered a new song off of their yet untitled upcoming record at a recent live show in Orlando. Current frontman Steve Tucker:
This song is probably the most warped thing we’ve ever done. This song is called “Warped”.
“Warped” sounds like the Celtic Frost influences of Domination applied to the generic mid-life crisis metal of Gateways to Annihilation. “Warped” will fail to please anyone who doesn’t shovel cardboard-tasting spoonfuls of refined carbohydrates and the industrial byproducts of the soft-drink industry into their mouths every morning. Formulas Fatal to the Flesh sounds like profound inspirations from the heavens in comparison. Morbid Angel have proven once more that their best material was written in the mid 1980s by the original incarnation of the band with Trey Azagthoth, Mike Browning, and Richard Brunelle. That was recorded on the “controversial” (to Trey and Dave “Pain Divine” Vincent) Abominations of Desolation. Brunelle’s departure after Blessed are the Sick, was the end of the band’s exemplary period as he was the source of much of their classical aspirations. Now Morbid Angel are attempting yet another mediocre comeback and will surely release an unexceptional album nobody will care much about in ten years.
