Has anyone heard this new album yet? I picked it up yesterday and I'm VERY disappointed. For a Morbid Angel album this is total crap. These guys are one of my all-time favourite bands and this is the first album they've ever put out that I honestly regret spending money on. I guess that's what I get for buying the album before downloading it for free to make sure I actually want to spend money on it.

You didn't read all the reviews or check out the full stream? (I'll give full lenience on the stream)...every review talks about how its complete garbage

You'll be even more pissed when it takes twice as long to get your money back. This album seriously blows

I've changed my mind slightly. It seems like the good songs are a throwback to the songs on Convenant. The 'good' songs could have been something right off that album. I think the new drummer did a good job. My issue is more with the industrial elements that they have incorporated into a few of the songs. I don't like industrial and I don't like all the triggers they used on the drums either. Some of Dave's vocals on the 'industrially' sounding songs are just bad bad bad. I was expecting this album to be a continuation of the 'new' style Trey started writing with FFF, Gateway, and Heretic where there were two distinguishable guitar parts ... different riffs instead of both guitars playing the same thing. Instead I think it was a throwback to their early/mid 90's sound.

Songs on the album I think suck big dick:
01 - Omni Potens
02 - Too Extreme!
07 - Destructos Vs the Earth
10 - Radikult
11 - Profundis - Mea Culpa

I think if those five tracks were not on the album it wouldn't be getting all the bad reviews it's getting.
