They’ve done it again. Morbid Angel‘s 2003 opus, “Heretic” [Earache Records], is their best release since “Covenant.” It regains that cold, relentless intensity of their previous cataclysmic efforts. And it is excellent.
The urgent fury of the Morbid Angel sound has remained intact over the years, as they combine many extreme styles. Morbid Angel fuses together elements of Black Metal, Grindcore, Death Metal, and even a little Doom Metal into a furious amalgamation of visceral power. Intense growled vocals spearhead barrages of grinding guitar blasts. Some intricate leads are used as well.
The best of these amazing cuts include the bleak power of “Abyssous,” “Memories Of The Past,” “Beneath The Hollow,” and the rampaging “Curse The Flesh.” Morbid Angel is an unleashed storm of wrathful glory.
In summary, Morbid Angel continues to be amazing. (Even with the bizarre tracking on the disc.) This one is sure to obliterate. Stay savage. Farewell.

Keep the faith, and the AGGRESSION. War.
