Morbid Angel's Trey Azagthoth Calls "Illud Divinum Insanus" A "Confused Effort" & Declares "Radikult" A "Silly Song"

Guitarist Trey Azagthoth of Morbid Angel thinks that the band's "Illud Divinum Insanus" album was a "confused effort" whose hard to place direction eventually led to the exit of vocalist/bassist David Vincent.

In an interview with Guitar World, Azagthoth tells:

"It just shows how David and I are in different worlds these days. He is, for sure, an artist and great in his own way, but was becoming so very different than what I was into. It was a confused effort and that is why I changed the lineup.

I already knew the result was gonna be off during rehearsals and recording," he added. "Some of it turned out cool, but David made his vocals too loud — like usual — and the rhythm guitars got subdued in the mix. Then David flew to L.A. to finish some vocals with the engineer that mixed the record. And it seems he influenced how the mix was gonna turn out. Before I heard the final mixes for the record I thought it was gonna sound a lot more heavy. But nothing could save a silly song like 'Radikult', which I just tried to ignore. I had nothing to do with that thing."

On Dave Vincent's decision to join forces with several other musicians - including ex-Morbid Angel drummer Tim Yeung - to play classic Morbid Angel tracks under the I Am Morbid monicker, Trey states:

"Sometimes ya just gotta laugh. I'm moving on, and hey, I wish David all the best with whatever he's doing. Me and David made great things in the past for many years and then we grew apart. But now I have people working with me that I can relate to better. Working with Steve is awesome and we go out there and do all that fucked up, sick-ass shit again."
