Morbid Angel

Looks like I'm going to a concert tonight with one of the clients...

Does anyone know anything about Morbid Angel? What have I gotten myself into?

You are so fucked! I will wish you luck while you're there.

Angel of Disease - Morbid Angel

Your plastic souls melt within cauldron's burning black
Chanting to the Ancient Ones, chants of broken lines
Kneel before the altar, sacrifice is made
It is pleasing to the ones most ancient of the days

They call the prince of disease, messenger of the Absu
Carry through the icy winds our curse upon their church

Hanging helpless above the pentagram
Sacrifice swings within leather noose
Sing the ancient hymn that makes the Abso roll
Raise the rusty knife, let loose the blood of Kingu

Sudden death throws off the balance that's within the sky
Priest calls forth infernal names to the ones beyond the gate

Angel of disease one who shuns the light
Shub Niggurath goat with one thousand young

Praise the beast, the chanting grew
Praise the beast with virgin blood
Praise the beast with soul and mind
Praise the beast and show the sign

Bind their kings in iron chains
Execute the judgement for them
Come and taste the fleshy pleasures
Orgies of endless time

Beneath the rolling for hate ignites their eyes
From their graves the dead rise to answer Nammtar's call
On a twisted cross the virgin corpse hangs
They blacken out the sun and burn the elder gods

Morbid priest calling forth
Abominations of the sky
Cthulhu meets in the void
Ancient Ones rule once more

I was afraid of this. Oh well, it can't be worse background for reading/writing than the club music and strippers at Silverado. I wish I knew where my headlamp went.

Thanks. I'll give you a call when I get home from work (at the lab). Speaking of which, you should get me those slides if you want me to scan them...

If you're lucky, the scans might appear sans bill. Although, I might be hungry after all that strenuous manual labor. ; )

Gateways To Annihilation and Heretic are brilliant albums. Their lyrics deal with spiritual energy and focusing large amounts of power. Heavy. I saw them before I left NYC and they tore everyone up!

The other bands they were touring with were pretty lame, but they definitely tore shit up. I couldn't make out the lyrics, nor do I imagine I would have wanted to, but musically they really were spot on. Good stuff.

I had a lot more fun than I expected to.

Yeah, it was pretty tame ultimately. There were never more than 10 people circle dancing, and really that was about all I saw in the way of violent dancing. Mostly people standing or buzzing to themselves.

LOLOLO, awesome. They're about as abstract and intelligent as *death* metal can get. Like the other person stated, the song subjects are pretty interesting and deal with personal empowerment and metaphysical what nots.

Plus, the lead guitarist is a shredder. Very unique and strange 2-hand tapping madness.

Yes. Indeed I was impressed by their guitarists. Both of them had some really great control and fast fucking fingers. The two handed tapping was nearest to me, and it was quite the pretty.

I was just having a look at your website and i just want say,if you liked Morbid Angel then buy Domination,Covernant or Blessed are the sick,but the album to start on would be Altars of madness.they are all packed full of solos by the amazing lead guitarist Trey azagthoth and pounding drum beats of Pete (The feet) Sandoval.I hope this helps you on your musical journey,Long live Morbid Angel.
