How could it be anything less when you include the Black Metal sounds of Watain and their terrifying stage presence along with the crushing Death Metal that comes care of the also legendary Incantation. Read more down below and I will come back soon.

Kingdoms Disdained reunites founding guitarist Trey Azagthoth with bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker. Captured at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and produced by MORBID ANGEL with Erik Rutan, the record delivers eleven pieces of devastatingly dynamic death metal. Compositions such as “Garden Of Disdain,” “Architect And Iconoclast,” and “The Pillars Crumbling” supremely illustrate Azagthoth’s incredible creative alchemy with Tucker as well as his own incomparable guitar work. Orders for Kingdoms Disdained are currently available at THIS LOCATION. Continue reading Legendary Death Metal Icons Morbid Angel Announce US Tour→
Artist: Morbid Angel Title: “Altars Of Madness” Label: Earache Records Release Date: 3/14/2006 Genre: Death Metal Rating: 4/5
In honor of their legendary debut release “Altars Of Madness”, Florida’s Morbid Angel has issued a remastered edition of the album that includes a live concert DVD from the same year of the albums birth. “AOM” was not just a debut album but is one that is considered a legendary piece of music from the Death Metal genres early years. Morbid Angel were not a band that sounded like the Death Metal bands of today in any fashion and when they began had a very strong Thrash Metal undertone to them. There was blast beat drumming and dark vocals but when it came to the guitar one would find that there was also a tremendous amount of technical skills placed in to the tunes with careful and stylish riffing. This ended up presenting a band that had much more musical approach to them and showed signs that the genre had a lot more going for it than many would have allowed to accept. It was definitely extreme and not your brothers NWOBHM when it needed comparison. The members of the band at their earliest time was David Vincent (bass, vocals), Trey Azagthoth (guitar), Richard Brunelle (guitar) and Pete Sandoval (drums) and like most of the bands that would follow in their footsteps the lyrical composition was rife with strong Satanic and Anti-Christian beliefs. It held some similarities to Black Metal but Death Metal was not quite as underground as that genre would be at this time. While it was still growing and had some serious momentum in the European countries, there was no one as influential to the form in the US as Morbid Angel would end up being.

Artist: Morbid Angel Venue: B.B. King Blues Club (New York, NY) Opener: Behemoth, Krisium Date: 4/9//2006 Label: Earache Records
This was going to be a concert for the record books for not only would we be finding ourselves in a sold out room for Morbid Angel, one of the true legends of Death Metal; but we would also be finding the appearance of the devastating Behemoth from Poland and the skull-crushing power of Krisium. I remember seeing many of these bands on their own and feeling my bones shake in my skin so I was not sure that I would be able to handle the three of them together in one sitting. Given each group is of some note I wanted to give a little commentary on each individually for maximum metal effect. Read on if you dare – you know you want to. Continue reading Morbid Angel @ B.B.
