The band then re-signed with their former label, Earache Records. David Vincent left the band soon after the release of Domination and was replaced by Steve Tucker. When this album came out, I clearly remember how many metalheads hailed it as the best since Altars. Vinyl and CD Sell Copy. Instead, we've got lyrics about war and about emperors Allow me to reveal my ANUSite heritage for a moment: Both vinyl releases had a much different cover.
That's another problem I have with this album - all of the rest of Morbid Angel's albums manage to keep the majority of their songs' tempos one way or another - fast or slow. Blessed Are The Sick 6. Which is, to be honest, rather unremarkable. Progressive, rhythmic, complex and evil death metal with lyrics well-crafted from Sumerian and Lovecraftian domains.
There was also a limited edition "Slime Pack" planned, which was never released after several packs leaked before shipping and the slime-substance was found to be toxic. Altars of Madness Blessed Are the Sick Covenant Domination Formulas Fatal to the Flesh Gateways to Annihilation Heretic Illud Divinum Insanus. I got this disc in '95 at the same time I got Misery Loves Co. The biggest reason why, and I think the best reason, is that the songs are more bland than the songs from the first three albums. Where the Slime Live is probably one of my favorite slower death metal songs of all time. Eyes to See, Ears to Hear Plain and simple as that.
