Complete your Morbid Angel collection. It was released on May 12, 1989 through Combat Records/Earache Records. The album was recorded in December 1988 at Morrisound Recording in Tampa, Florida. The album is one of the earliest examples of death metal and is considered to have helped pioneer the sound along with Possessed's Seven Churches in 1985 and Death's Scream Bloody Gore in 1987, and set a new precedent for heaviness and extremity, both musically and lyrically. It is one of the most celebrated albums in death metal history, and one of the most influential heavy metal albums of all time.

Morbid Angel is probably one of the biggest and most famous bands in the Death metal genre, their album sales are what you can call a small commercial success. Appreciated by a lot of extreme metal fans, you can probably find at least one of their records in every Death metal fan's collection and with what they've made in their career, they certainly deserve it. This is their debut full length. An enjoyable listen, but, with ups and downs. I like this sound a lot : It sounds very raw and this adds to the evilness that is Altars of Madness. That's a major advantage of the album, it's very evil. A big part in the evilness is carried by the vocalist; Morbid Angel has had quite a few vocalists, however I, and many other MA fans, think that David Vincent is clearly their best.

Morbid Angel - Altars Of Madness (1989).

Morbid Angel are a band that are capable of keeping one hooked into listening to the entire album, as these songs, while flowing well into each other as an album, are clearly differentiable enough to keep one’s attention for the entire running time of the album. The production values on this album are certainly not the best; while most other death metal albums tend to have something of a bass presence, Altars of Madness has little of that, largely being thinner and reedier than most DM albums.

Laugh at the tragedies, mock with disrespect Goats under rule of father time Leaches pass judgment on their fellow kind And die when their inner self goes astray Alas, I pay homage to the ancient ones, speak my name Raise the staff of the morbid priest Descend into the fires of the true law. Suffocating, evil smoke arise, cleansing the masses of iniquity Cauldrons blaze in sanctifying ritual Vile crematory burns my eyes.

Lineup: David Vincent - Vocals, Bass Pete Sandoval - Drums Richard Brunelle - Guitars Trey Azagthoth - Guitars.

Altars of Madness is Morbid Angel's debut album and is a milestone in the history of death metal.

Florida’s Morbid Angel didn’t merely ensure thrash’s transition into death metal on their 1989 debut. Thanks to cranium-cracking solos by guitarists Trey Azagthoth and Richard Brunelle on tracks like Immortal Rites, Maze of Torment, and Damnation -and time signature changes that induce serial whiplash-the album sets a standard of technical mastery that death metal bands are still trying to match. Florida’s Morbid Angel didn’t merely ensure thrash’s transition into death metal on their 1989 debut.
