slow man
Abominations of desolation was the first studio recording of Morbid angel. It was recorded in 1986 and must be considered as a demo. The band was dissatisfied with the results and the release was only years later,in 1991, by decision of record label Earache.(lucky they did because it's an interesting record.) The lineup was Trey Azagtoth on guitars and Mike Browning on drums and vocals, completed with bassist Sterling von Scarborough and guitarist Richard Brunelle. David Vincent did the production and later he joined the band with drummer Pete Sandoval. The music of the album sounds very rough,dark and evil. It already shows the talents of a skilled death metal band. Many songs are re-recorded for Altars of madness & Blessed are the sick,and some for Covenant and Formulas fatal to the flesh. I really enjoy these old demo songs,despite their own dissatisfaction. I like the old metal of those years. Abominations contains their all-time classic Chapel of ghouls and great songs as Unholy blasphemies,Abominations and the very fast Hell spawn. The quality of the sound is tolerable,rather good for demo quality. It was a wise decision to release these songs from the great death metal band.
