世界随着1989年几个来自佛罗里达坦帕的家伙发行的一张名为Altars Of Madness（疯狂祭坛）的专辑而狂暴不安起来。当时，这张专辑对极端金属进行了革命性的和空前的陈述，它强大的歌曲创作，细微的旋律，悦耳的firewinds，及失控的热情的愤怒，满足了许多饥渴的耳朵，它很快就登上了英国独立排行榜的第一名。他们的这张处女作成了公认的绝对的最具影响力的死亡金属专辑，它是由炙热的怒火和永不停歇的能量组成的旋风的中心。
Ah, Morbid Angels debut album. I remember buying this on vinyl when it was first released in 1989 at a local record shop. I couldn't wait for it and when it was finally released i was overwhelmed with joy. This is another Death Metal classic that I have enjoyed over the years and will always do so. With so many great bands hailing from Florida ie..Death, Obituary, Nocturnus etc...Morbid Angel are my favorite next to Death.
Guitar work on this album is awesome by Trey Azagthoth and Richard Brunelle with lots of blistering wah-wah leads and lightspeed riffs. Vocals by David Vincent are demonic sounding the drums by Pete Sandoval are amazing with some of the best double bass drumming i've ever heard. Listen to "Immortal Rites" and you'll see what i'm talking about. This is definitely my favorite Morbid Angel album.
Production on the album is good even though it could have been a little bit thicker sounding, but still a great production.
Overall this is a fantastic album that will be forever one of the greatest albums of the genre and must be added to any Death Metal collection.
