Titan is right, Abominations of Desolation never been a classic, that's not even a official release, let's be real.

"It was obviously way more obscure than Covenant though which explains why that album gets more recognition."

well yeah definitely, no denying that. my original comment wasn't about "recognition" though, I was mainly speaking for long-term Morbid Angel fans that are knowledgable about all their albums (i.e. most people in this thread). My main point was that I don't really understand the Covenant love, then I compared it to my preferred albums. this turned into a mess of a thread.

"that's not even a official release"

Not technically since the band scrapped it at the last minute, but the band was signed to Goreque Records and the album was recorded as a studio record. Browning considers it the band's first album, while the others call it a demo, despite the fact it was recorded and fully intended to be a studio album.

"classic" is also interpretive. I don't automatically associate "classic" with mainstream recognition. It was definitely overshadowed by their bigger releases as the band got bigger, but for me it's totally a classic with some of the band's best music.

@ Ovdeath



It was very obscure in NYC, a place where non mainstream bands made their living playing small clubs 6 nights a week. That 'demo' was no where to be found.



And of course Browning has a different opinion about it, I would too.

no I don't. Goatlord is my third favourite Darkthrone.

Circle the Wagons > A Blaze > Goatlord

"obviously everything from Altars to Covenant is just better"

well not "obviously" for me, since that's your opinion. Obviously for you, but obviously for me, AoD and AoM are the best. AoD might take the winning edge just because of my love for Browning.

well yeah, Florida and NYC aren't really too close (I don't think??? idk I'm Australian).

"And of course Browning has a different opinion about it, I would too."

Well yeah you do, but Browning was there when it was first exposed to the public so I think I'd trust his views on how the original bootleg was exposed more than yours (soz). Apparently he had no idea when Earache released it in '91 though until someone showed it to him. But I think that was more because Vincent sold it to Earache in private rather than him having a decision to release it publicly.

I was referring to it as if I was Browning.....not that of Titan's opinion



(and referring to myself as 'Titan' is absolutely ridiculous haha)
