Morbid Angel

Groups like Venom, Mercyful Fate, and Slayer may have founded death metal in the early '80s, but it wasn't until such disciples as Morbid Angel came along at the close of the decade that the genre was pushed to its most extreme level, both musically and lyrically. Formed in 1984 in Florida, Morbid Angel (along with Death) would also help spearhead an eventual death metal movement in their home state, which would include such notables as Deicide and Obituary, among countless others. From its inception, the group's leader has been guitarist/songwriter Trey Azagthoth, who has successfully maintained that Morbid Angel stick to their guns throughout countless musical fads during their career. Over the course of their first few releases, 1989's Altars of Madness and 1991's Blessed Are the Sick (the latter considered by many as a landmark release in the death metal genre), the group's lineup consisted of Azagthoth, vocalist/bassist David Vincent, guitarist Richard Brunelle, and drummer Pete Sandoval. With Brunelle bowing out of the group shortly thereafter and replaced by Erik Rutan, Morbid Angel had come across what would become the longest-lasting lineup of their career, showcased on such albums as 1991's Abominations of Desolation, 1993's Covenant, 1995's Domination, and 1996's in-concert Entangled in Chaos, before Vincent jumped ship and was replaced with Steve Tucker. The Tucker-led lineup lasted for a pair of releases, 1997's Formulas Fatal to the Flesh and 2000's Gateways to Annihilation, before he was replaced with former Hate Eternal vocalist/bassist Jared Anderson. Morbid Angel spent the summer of 2001 touring U.S. arenas along with Pantera and Slayer as part of the multi-band Extreme Steel Tour. ~ Greg Prato

This band has very shaddy lyrics, I wonder what kind of beliefs does David hold. And why does everyone call him a Nazi.

Death is metal metal is death death is certain life is not not! Who cares what genre slayer is categorized. . . .

Okay, Slayer may not be "technically " death metal, because it's not f**king death metal. But, suffice to say, thrash did lead to the death metal sound.

Venom, Merciful fate and Slayer did NOT found death metal. while those are the perfect bands to cite as direct influences on the sub-genre the themes and musical structure is markedly different.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works

Possessed did invent death metal, but the music they made was more of an amped up version of thrash metal. Death built upon what Possessed had done and made death metal into it's own thing, not just an amped up thrash metal

No death metal band can ever compare with Morbid Angel.
