It's only a matter of time before the masters of Satan unleash their hellish carnage upon the wretched filth that is known as humanity. Pray to Dagon...the time is near. Souls will be crushed in a vicious onslaught of merciless brutality. Prepare to be dismembered by cutting riffs, and entombed by sheer black magic ambience.

Why all the negativity? And how is it possible that anyone has even heard this to review it anyway?

Despite being hated by most death metal purists, 'Illud Divinum Insanus' is actually a decent album with some variety and catchy riffs. It's only hated on because it's not much like Morbid Angel, aside from a few tracks.

This is by far the worst death metal album I've ever heard. This album being death metal's St. Anger is no understatement. From the opening sounds of the intro "Omni Potens" going into "Too Extreme!" you are in for one hell ride. Unfortunately for all you death metal fans I do not mean a hell ride that is enjoyable. This album is a hell ride of the description of being trapped in the stereotypical Bible Hell except you're getting your anus impaled by wooden spiked dildos for all eternity. When you heard an album for the first time like Altars of Madness or Diabolical Summoning, you felt it would get better and better after the first song and albums such as those deserve the hype that they have received. Illud Divinum Insanus is an album were you just feel the songs are getting worse and worse as each song ends. "Radikult" takes the award for stupidest and worst song on the whole album.

Morbid Angel are of course one of death metal's pioneers. Records such as Altars of Madness, Covenant, and Blessed are the Sick will continually be remembered as phenomenal records in the genre of DM, for all the various reasons. At this point they've been going on for more than two decades, and Illud is their eighth album, eight whole years after Heretic. Their previous effort was seen as a disappointment by some, I personally enjoyed it, but it's easy to see why others didn't. On this though, MA dabble in industrial, with absolutely awful results. Everything sounds so poorly put together, cheesy, and just plain stupid that it makes you wonder what the hell they were thinking when they put this to tape. The drum samples sound absolutely awful, the vocals are at an all time low, and the overall sound almost sounds like a parody. This is one of those albums that goes by Poe's Law; you can't tell if it's a joke or not. So overall, one of the worst albums of the past decade, and by far Morbid Angel's worst.

There are a few good songs here, but they're not great and they're not any better than the good songs on Heretic, and there are fewer of them. And getting to them requires navigating through some truly awful, inexplicable almost legitimately comically bad stuff. The bad is so bad, it's actually like some Ziltoid B-sides without any of the tongue-in-cheek-ness. Hopefully Pete Sandoval will rejoin the band just out of fury and pummel them back into, heck, even mediocrity would be great.

I just can't hear this thing, really hurts. One of my favourite bands doing this is awful.

Morbid Angel went extremely experimental on this album and the end result was that virtually
everyone hated it. Compared to their old stuff, there is no comparison, the old stuff
completely wins the competition. Now I will say that this album was not completely a
failure by Morbid Angel. Yes, a lot of the songs were crap, but there are also songs that I
enjoyed quite a bit: I will say the songs I enjoyed were definitely the least techno
sounding and more classic sounding. Overall, the album was not so good but Morbid Angel did
not completely loose it.

This album sucks ass, need I say more? If you want to listen to Death/Industrial metal go to Daath, they do it so much better.

Jesus Fucking Christ.....these are some of the worst songs ever...I mean come the fuck on, Too Extreme, Existo Vulbore, Destructos vs. earth, Radikult...what the fuck?! And they are all like 6 or 7 minutes of utter shit. Luckily for this album Blades for Baal is acctually good, and 10 more dead and Nevermore are solid as well other wise I'd try and .5 this shitfest.

Probably I'm not being fair with Illud Divinum Insanus, maybe it's too tridimensional for me but I just can't understand this pseudo extreme electronic metal. A failed experimental death metal record in my opinion.

There's nothing wrong with branching out, in fact I think that industrial inflected death metal is an interesting idea. But... Morbid Angel is just not good at it. At all. Half of this album sounds like they listened to some really crappy EBM and tried to mimic it, while the other half is just tired, generic death metal that they've done so, so much better in the past. And then there's the horrible Manson ode Radikult, which presumably was written with the aim of making the lyrics on Manson's last album seem thought-provoking... I really would like to say that it's not as bad as everyone is saying it is, but this is pretty much shit.

If you want to release a Marylin Manson ripoff mixed with German EBM, don't do it under the Morbid Angel.

I think they could've used an extra year or two to work out the kinks on this one.
