Morbid Angel – ‘Formulas Fatal to the Flesh’ CD


Morbid Angel’s 1998 album ‘Formulas Fatal to the Flesh’ is a masterpiece of death metal. It is an explosive mix of technicality, ferocity, and melody that still manages to sound memorable and engaging over two decades later.

The album opens with the title track, which immediately introduces the listener to the crushing sound of the dissonant riffs and solos that characterize the album. The instrumentation is highly polished, with the drumming displaying a technical proficiency that suits the music perfectly. The guitars and bass are also impeccable, featuring lightning-fast riffs and memorable melodies. The vocals are equally impressive, ranging from furious growls to a more melodic singing style.

The album continues with a plethora of tracks that demonstrate the band’s ability to switch styles while still maintaining a cohesive sound. ‘Bil Ur-Sag’ is one of the faster and more aggressive songs on the album, while ‘Umulamahri’ slows it down a notch and showcases some of the more melodic aspects of the music. The band also experiments with some unusual song structures, such as the six-minute long ‘Sworn to the Black’, which goes through multiple sections and tempo changes.

The production on the album is pristine and highlights all the details in the instrumentation and vocals. There is also a great deal of clarity in the sound, allowing the listener to appreciate all the nuances of the music.
