From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Morbid Angel. Retrieved 19 June Metal Storm. MTV News. Trey wrote all the music besides some instrumental stuff by Pete. I think it should have been more mixed on the lyrics. I wish Trey could have wrote more of the lyrical content. As for the songs themselves. Here they are the best on the album. The instrumentals are actually really awesome I must say. Out of all the Morbid Angel albums.
This one has the best instrumentals, and there are so many. I don't get why there are so many instrumentals on this record. Also, there is a bonus disc that came with it. It contains some instrumental versions of songs on the main disc as well as some soloing from Trey. I find it interesting that some of the solos on the bonus disc are leads taken from "Gateways to Annihilation.
It's as if they were trying to just throw in as much extra stuff on "Heretic" as they could to make up for the very few ideas they must have had. I will end this review by saying that I really do love Morbid Angel. They are probably my favorite band. This album isn't as bad as some make it out to be. Its got some really good moments that are overlooked by a lot of people. I'd say: get the earlier albums first and then get this album later on just for the sake of completing the collection.
Days had come, winters had gone, and we gambled like siblings in Paradise Perhaps it was the consistant touring or Trey's newfound intoxication of Doom, but the metal world was deprived of a new MA album for three long, non-brutal years. So would it be true that good things come to those who wait? Indeed it does, my friends. Throughout their rather long existence, the band never really did anything predictable with their music as each successive album had its own personal feel and atmosphere; "Alters" was chaotic, "Blessed" was ghastly, "Covenant" was pure evil, "Domination" was swampy, "Entangled" was monstrous, "Formulas" was blistering and "Gateways" was astral.
And not one album preceding or following kept on any real given path, save for the central genre. Once the first riff of "Cleansed in Pestilence" strikes, you know you're in for a treat, a smorgasboard of death metal mastery set at as fast a pace as is possible at that given moment.
Trey Azagthoth continues to prove his methodical insanity of guitar playing, letting loose an array of spasmatic riffs and mind-bending, other-worldly solos that transcend as they slay the listener. Throughout this slaughter belt-out Mr. Sandoval unleashes tremorous drumwork in a one-two punch that levels and pounds into utter dust. Still he remains one of the best drummers the metal world has seen, a throne that has yet to be usurped.
And although Steve Tucker is in the picture, he remains more as an afterthought on this recording, both in the vocals and lyrics, both of which don't live up to past works by any stretch bass is completely nonexistant here, and not worth noting. However, when focus is given to the riffery, plentiful musical goodness is abound, from the fast and twisted the aformentioned "Cleansed However, despite all its awesomeness it does have downsides; the production is rather horrible, rendering the rhythm guitar work a loud, intangible mess of static that makes differentiating notes and chords that much more of a chore, and the vocals have a wavy approach that makes one think Steve did his growling underwater.
That lack of clarity is both cryptic and bothersome. That, and the bonus tracks and "Bonus Levels" disc seem a bit unnecessary, though the "Love of Lava" solos are a nice touch.
And while it's been WAY too long, let's hope whatever "I" album will come shooting out will be all the better, and more unexpected. Days will come, winters will go, and we will gamble like siblings in Paradise While it has taken so long for Morbid Angel to release its follow up to 'Heretic', likely to start with the letter 'I', all I have to rely on is constant listens to their entire back catalog.
I first of all do not think that 'Heretic' is their best effort to date for they all ready accomplished that years ago with 'Covenant'. Now that is an unfair comparison since they are both so very different. Where 'Heretic' varies is in the overall production and amazingly brutal yet still melodic guitar work, hats off to Trey for that one. Brutality that stands far apart from the sloppily done brutal death metal that so many bands foul up.
Morbid Angel have always had a thunderous approach and 'Heretic' is no exception. With those two put together we get a great idea of what the whole album is like. It is instrumental with buzzing guitars, choppy bass and drums that fill in the gaps before the annihilation really unravels.
Steve's voice sounds really gruesome on this song and the whole entirety of it sounds well put together. To hear the instrumental only part listen to 'Doomcreeper' which is at the end of the album. If you were lucky enough to get limited edition of a few pressings it has instrumentals to all songs on 'Heretic' that portion is called 'bonus levels.
The guitars keep up the pace and are Trey's best on the album. Pete's drumming gets really fast on this song and sounds like machine-gun fire. There is really only 8 songs in 'Heretic' that are actual songs and not instrumentals which is ok as long as they are not just fillers. It annoys me when bands do that to fill up an album but at least Morbid Angel puts most of them at the end.
The guitar during the chorus has that signature sound that Trey employs on this album. What I like most is that the guitars have more of a pitch to them and blatant explosiveness than what I am used to hearing.
Especially on 'Gateways' and 'Formulas' where the guitars are really deep and sludgy. Will he be the same David that we remember from that once astonishing period in Morbid Angels life?
The brilliant 'Alters of Madness' or the aforementioned 'Covenant'. Or will he actually introduce some goth and bondage influences to the fold? Fuck no my friends. The Morbid Angel I know will never succumb to such an atrocity. I am disgusted at what little appreciation and what little respect is given to this band today. Not only are they a pillar of death metal, but also of thrash. If not for bands like Morbid Angel it isn't likely that death metal would even exist today and if it did it definitely wouldn't be as good.
This music has succumbed to the most outcast and degenerate offerings of this world. Computer hacks, pre-pubescent teenagers, chat room critics and all of their glue sniffing mallcore counterparts have collectively infiltrated a once proud and noble form of art and sucked it to the bone. They have taken refuge in something they are not and have never been a part of.
Unfortunately it's not just death metal that's been taken down by these homosexual drones, but basically every sub-genre. I think the end result of their combining of the two was effective in creating something that calls back to the old school and at the same time remains at the forefront of the genre today.
It isn't the most innovative, but by it's sheer musical domination, song writing and feel for groove it succeeds. The creativity and energy that is displayed on this album is impressive. The sound is compressed, with heavy mid-range leanings, raw and slightly sloppy, but in a good way. Although I liked the production on their last album I am glad that they chose to go in this direction because this sound had an enormous impact on the origins of this music. They implement a lot more of their thrash roots on this and so to me it makes perfect sense that they chose to make this sound the way that they did.
You bring out a lot more feeling and authenticity when you don't edit the fuck out of the music in an attempt to make it sound tighter. On this album Trey is all over the place with his rhythms and triplet massacring and Pete is still Pete, fast as hell and aggressive! Some have complained about Steve Tuckers vocals and the absence of David Vincent, but really he does an excellent job, I have no complaints. Lyrically there is nothing absolutely special, they stick to being themselves and don't sing about topics which they have no knowledge of.
It's for the most part in opposition to the semitic religions, their mindless followers and the toll that they've taken on civilization. In fact the lyrics are very relevant to today, as each second that passes brings us closer to another war, a religious war, which threatens to ignite the whole of this planet into nothing more than swathes of twisted corpses and disease. They are none too upset by this, in fact it would appear that they actually welcome this holocaust with open arms.
