My favorite is Covenant. It has some of my favorite songs- Rapture and Blood on my Hands. I also really like Angel of Disease because it stands out and has some great guitarwork. All Morbid Angel albums have a great atmosphere to them, but this is one of the more consistent releases.

Edit - nah, fav is Altars of Madness

Domination for me. It was the first Death Metal album I heard.

Sadly i don't think Morbid Angel made any masterpiece, the first 4 albums are great but some tracks really makes me bored, IMO the close perfect album they made "Gateways To Annihilation"

1. Gateways To Annihilation (Steve Tucker did a great job in this one)

2. Domination (can't choose between these 4 albums in every each one i like tracks and i hate tracks)
Covenant
Altars Of Madness
Blessed Are The Sick

3. Heretic (this album remind me of Nile)

4. Formulas Fatal To The Flesh (i liked some part in some songs meeh average album)

Ok, the album's sound, atmosphere, guitar riffs, lyrics, no filler songs... in my opinion it's one of the best death metal albums ever.

My fave is Illud Divinum Insanus. LOL, I'm joking, it couldn't be other than Altars Of Madness!

Blessed Are The Sick (Leading The Rats)

That's probably the best title I've ever heard tbh.

I've always enjoyed this band, never loved, never hated, but when I want to listen to something both heavy and evil, they nail it pretty well. For me it's real close between Formulas and Covenant. I love the ultra heavy earthy guitar tone on Formulas and the sludgy parts here, they are just oozing like a slug. Covenant is more of a straight awsome early death metal work, like their first two albums, but it just rips it up. Great riffs, catchy choruses and evil as shit. But yeah, Formulas, love that one.

It's a good thing this poll was made before Illud Divinum Insanus ever came out, that album doesn't deserve any votes. Out of the ones I've heard, I probably have to go with Blessed Are The Sick, it's still death metal, but there seems to be more of a sophisticated classical feel to it. It was dedicated to Mozart after all.

Domination. Two best MA songs included: Where The Slime Live and Dawn of the Angry. Haven't really ever gotten the hype around Altars...

Who the fuck votes for Heretic? I can understand if you like the album (I didn't) but how is it your favorite out of everything Morbid Angel has done?

Anyway, the first two are easily the best, with the third following closely behind.

The first 4 albums were all great. My vote goes to Covenant though. Rapture and Angel of Disease are kick ass and every other song on the album gets me hooked. Domination comes in at a close 2nd.

I have to go with Covenant. Their first 3 are classics, but there's something about Covenant i like the most. It seems to have more variety than their previous albums. I love the riffage and drumming. Some of my favorite Morbid Angel songs are on that album; Rapture, Vengeance is Mine, Lion's Den, Blood on my Hands, and God of Emptiness... Altars of Madness is a close 2nd with me.

Domination by far. That album is pure headbanging brilliance in muy opinion.


Problem with Altars Of Madness is that it kind of gets stuck in gear after Chapel Of Ghouls and then just thrashes on mindlessly. It's pure gold up to and including Chapel of Ghouls. (I always wonder whether people listen to the whole thing - I wonder if they listen to the last 4 songs?).


Blessed Are The Sick and Covenant are both solid - I especially love Abominations, The Ancient Ones, Angel of Disease, God of Emptiness, Day Of Suffering, World of Shit and The Lion's Den.


Not a fan of anything after Domination.

Usually when I listen to it I start with Immortal Rites and find it hard not to listen to the whole thing. Bleed for the Devil and Damnation in particular on the back end are pretty monstrous. As a whole the album is a great length and doesn't lose momentum either.

I voted in this poll a long time ago and I'm not sure if I picked Covenant or Altars but it was one of those two (both really good shit)

The first three are definite death classics, nowadays I think I prefer Blessed out of them.

Do not see why people hail Domination. I found it dumbed down and boring compared to the first three.
