Legendary death metal unit MORBID ANGEL graces the cover of the January 2018 issue of Decibel Magazine. Steve Tucker and Trey Azagthoth combine forces once more to lead the band back to death metal dominance, and Decibel has the details on the making of their ninth studio album, Kingdoms Disdained. Order your copy today at THIS LOCATION.
The long-anticipated Kingdoms Disdained will see release on December 1st via Silver Lining Music and in Japan via JVC. Recorded at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and produced by MORBID ANGEL with Erik Rutan (MORBID ANGEL, Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal, Six Feet Under, Belphegor), Azagthoth, Tucker and drummer Scotty Fuller (Annihilated, ex Abysmal Dawn) created eleven pieces of devastatingly dynamic death metal. Compositions such as “Garden Of Disdain,” “Architect And Iconoclast,” and “The Pillars Crumbling” supremely illustrate Azagthoth’s incredible creative alchemy with Tucker as well as his own incomparable guitar work.
Just one play of MORBID ANGEL’s searing Kingdoms Disdained, and you’ll realize that this is the only true current aural document of a world sinking into uncharted despair. “The album title says it all,” says Tucker, “everybody’s fed up and nobody can figure out how to fix it. We’ve got all these miniature wars in neighborhoods, cities, countries, and we’ve got people with varying opinions causing chaos, yet everyone is doing what they feel is right. Which all makes it feel like the world has reached a point of utter madness and confusion.”
As if fate constructed the moment, these forefathers of death metal found themselves witnessing the storm’s eye as they prepared to create Kingdoms Disdained, deciphering it with their ferocious music via long-held Sumerian-based beliefs. “It’s been written but nobody pays attention, because we erase our history,” furthers Tucker. “We don’t understand much about the Sumerian texts because things got erased, buried, and broken up. And for years, Trey and I talked a lot about the idea of those Gods waking up and coming back to show us that they’re angry.”
Preorders are currently available at THIS LOCATION where you can also hear opening track “Piles Of Little Arms.”
“Sticking to their roots, the band delivers a solid comeback album which will be on your playlists for a long time.” — Metal Wani
“Incredibly enjoyable… MORBID ANGEL are back, reunited with Steve Tucker, death metal and a proper respect for the elder tentacle gods.” — Metal Riot
“…very refreshing and gives the entire genre that shot in the arm it needs. There are no throw-away tracks, there’s no awkwardness and there’s no experimentation. It’s straight ahead aggressive metal… a dark record for the dark times we live in.” — Metal Insider
