Morbid Angel – Altars of Madness LP

SKU: MOSH011FDRUS Category: Tag:


The debut album of Florida-based death metal band Morbid Angel. It was released on May 12, 1989 through Combat Records/Earache Records. The album was recorded in December 1988 at Morrisound Recording in Tampa, Florida. The album is one of the earliest examples of death metal and is considered to have helped pioneer the sound along with Possessed’s Seven Churches in 1985 and Death’s Scream Bloody Gore in 1987, and set a new precedent for heaviness and extremity, both musically and lyrically. It is one of the most celebrated albums in death metal history, and one of the most influential heavy metal albums of all time. The overtly Satanic and occult lyrical themes were a significant influence on the early Norwegian black metal scene.

Full dynamic range repressed from original tapes. Gatefold.

This item is sealed, but it should be the black vinyl edition.
