Morbid Angel: Gateways To Annihilation

Overall Impression — 10
At last the mighty Death Metallers, Morbid Angel, have brought out something to match their 1989 release Altars of Madness, and their 90's album Covenant. Following up their somewhat less repuatable album, Formulas Fatal to the Flesh, comes Gateways to Annihilation. Gateways to Annihilation delivers that hard hitting, morbid feeling, and somewhat brooding atmopshere that Morbid Angel tended to fall back on a tad on releases after Covenant. Steve Tucker's (Vocalist/Bassist) voice hits you like a Demon straight from the otherside of the Gateway! This is definatly one of their best pieces of work. Gateways to Annihilation starts off with the mood shifting track Summoning Redemption, that gets you right into the feel of the album which continues right until the end of the album. It is followed with what is now one of my favourite Morbid Angel tracks, Ageless, Still I am. This feel is continued for the entire length of the album, 100% killer!!! The last song has slight twist for Morbid Angel, the solo in God of the Forsaken is...clear! Un-like your typical Morbid Angel solo that is rather gut-wrenching, this one has a feel to it, and finishes the album with a triumphant mood. This is definatly a must get for any not just Death Metal fan, but any fan of Metal. If your a previous Morbid Angel fan and have been a little let down by Formulas Fatal to the Flesh, definatly check out Gateways to Annihilation.
