Morbid Angel, the true forefathers of death metal music, triumphantly return with their 9th studio albumÊKingdoms DisdainedÊreleased on Silver Lining Music.ÊKingdoms DisdainedÊfinds legendary guitarist and founder Trey Azagthoth reigniting his creative alchemy with vocalist / bassist Steve Tucker to create a crushingly heavy and highly apocalyptic soundtrack for these increasingly dark times. Relentless and unrepentantÊKingdoms DisdainedÊabounds with sheer, brutal power, complex changes and a gloriously violent death metal underpinning, an album designed to confront fans and non-believers alike, with TuckerÕs lyrics destined to spark deep conversation on several angles of mysticism and darkness.ÊGarden Of DisdainÊproclaims Õthis world of useless being, this endless festeringÕ as the unceasing riff's weight further augments the songÕs meaning, while the barbaric barrage ofÊArchitect And IconoclastÊroars ÔI am all prophecies fulfilled, yet you refuse to see this.' Azagthoth produces some of his finest work yet, his demonically-heavy riffs and lead work finding a powerful delivery vehicle via the strength of Scotty FullerÕs insane percussion and TuckerÕs relentless vocal savagery. The supreme solo duringÊThe Righteous VoiceÊunderscores AzagthothÕs unique creative arrangements, and inÊFor No Master, Azagthoth illustrates that no guitarist in the genre orchestrates, and translates, dark chaos so masterfully. Wrapped in a thick wall of death metal sound,ÊKingdoms DisdainedÊwas recorded at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, FL and produced by Morbid Angel with Erik Rutan (produced albums by Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal , Six Feet Under, Belphegor and many more). It will unequivocally and unapologetically reset the bar for dynamic death metal music, and only the scared, the meek or the ignorant would willfully deny themselves a taste ofÊKingdoms Disdained.
