^^^I think you're taking my comment way too seriously.
I'm totally over Morbid.
They can release all the techno they want.
Besides, Amon just released Liar in Wait on CD Baby and new Fear Factory, Nile, Kreator, Testament and others...Morbid can pretty much do as they please.
Oh yeah, Amon...getting good feedback, I'm waiting for the actual CD to come out next week but the download is available...

Yeah I saw that Amon release was coming out, but doesn't seem like they've done any promo for it which is weird - not even a debut track.

Man, if you don't like a track, (and there are a couple) just go to the next one. There are plenty of good songs on that album. Just delete the ones you don't like and quit crying.

ive never seen morbid angel live so im going. but to add grave and dark funeral to the bill, i just about sh** myself. thats devastating to say the least. this should totally be a triple headline show/tour thing. i dont care if people dont like the new album. MA is one of the best death metal bands around and from people that ive talked to and vids ive seen, they slay. so if you dont wanna go cuz "morbid angel sux now" your lame for not supporting the other bands and metal in general. yea, i went there... FOAD! IDGAF

@Cynic...yup, the download is available now. You're right though, Amon has done very little P.R. for the disc. But since they are without a label I can see why. It's funny that just a few weeks ago the artice on here "Stop Stealing Music" was being discussed and a lot of us were wondering where the underground was headed. I think Amon is a huge indication of where the underground is heading. Labels won't offer these bands anything so they're pretty much financing the whole thing themselves. If this is the future of metal than the picture will be looking pretty bleak since most bands won't have the money to throw at such a project just hoping things will take off.
Anyway...samples of the songs are on cd baby....I'm looking forward to the physical copy next week and I like what I've heard so far.

Im interested in this show,if only to see Swedish death metal legends,Grave! Seriously,from what ive read,the MDF Morbid set included only two songs from that horrible last album. Set mostly consisted of songs from "Blessed are the Sick",and "Covenant"! Will be in Worcester for this show,no doubt!

Add Lansing-MI's Blackened Moon Concert Hall on 22 October. Morbid Angel don't seem to be playing, though, from what I heard.

the album was not all that bad; i actually like it better than heretic to be honest. Minus the kill a cop song there are plenty of decent morbid angel tracks on there..... be more open and listen to it more than once. I use to hate the song too extreme! but that song eventually grew on me as it is really catchy
