I have not yet had a chance to hear their new album, but from all that I have read, it looks like that may be a good thing. Unfortunately, Morbid Angel has really only tarnished their legacy since their first three albums. But man, those first three albums were fucking great. Morbid Angel is the band that truly brought an evil atmosphere to death metal. Their extreme version of thrash, which became the benchmark for occult death metal, is full of razor sharp riffs, incendiary solo work, and murky production. They were one of the first major death metal bands, and for that reason, deserve their legendary status.
