Summerian overload on this, Morbid's first album with new vocalist/bassist Steve Tucker. Both musically and lyrically complex, this is the band's most adventurous album. The genius collective mastermind of Trey Azagthoth and Pete Sandoval have graciously allowed us to engage in just such one of these cosmic wonders, and the way that metalheads speak of and react to, speaks volumes about the prospect of death metal's future being vibrant, bright, varied, and fulfilling. This album is everything Domination should have been: starting with a standard death metal formula it incorporates even heavier, sludgier tones, fast and brutal drumming and rhythms, powerful and abrasive vocals, coherent and compelling songwriting and enchanting melodies. After Domination, Morbid Angel not only made up the distance between Covenant and its desired successor but, perhaps drawing from the mistakes and shortcomings, took a whole step further towards what they envisioned to be their goal. It encompasses the whole range of mortal existence, from the depth of evil to the domain of the gods and through it courses imminent, absolute power.
