One of the most influential bands in Death Metal, Morbid Angel presented their fourth album back in the good old Death Metal days, one of a kind masterpiece if you may, it has the best leads Azagthoth has ever made, groundbreaking music, incredibly crushing vocals, and lyrics that prove good old Death Metal isn't always about gore, guts, or rotting stuff.
Shapes, All kind of musical shapes wrap this album, along with the most brilliant arrangements and vocal effects, in fact the best ones I've heard coming from Morbid Angel (just hear "Where The Slime Lives"), the first two songs of the album are connected in an spectacular concept that actually prepares you for a really outstanding album.
Domination shows a more experienced and skilled Morbid Angel, the tunes reflect a polished group thinking about what the band and their audience wants to hear. 43 minutes of mastermind music, the album transports the audience from an ultra fast song "Dawn Of The Angry" to an almost melodic one "Hatework", showing once again an incredibly versatile band with broken chains and genius minds. The album conqueror is "Where The Slime Lives" this song is unbelievable, great background atmospheres, awesome riffs and incredible leads, this is the song that people will always remember as one of the best Death Metal songs of all times, seriously!
I don't know which Morbid Angel album I like more, but I am sure Domination is close to be their best work, in fact I think the first four Morbid Angel albums deserve straight 10's, I know too that "Altars Of Madness" has more impact in the metal world than anything else and in theory this album is just a great extension of what the first albums created, so the formula and the judgement goes directly to you.
Best Tracks: "Where The Slime Lives", "Heartwork"
