ALBUM ART FOR MORBID ANGEL’S ILLUD DIVINUM INSANUS IS TOUCHY-FEELY
Hard to believe that there hasn’t been a new Morbid Angel album during the history of MetalSucks, but we’re finally getting one this summer. It’s called Illud Divinum Insanus, which, according to this dorky Latin message board (you really can find anything on the internet), a) means “that divine, insane thing,” and b) is poorly conjugated (apparently it should be insanum, not insanus). And I know that there are people who are bummed that Pete Sandoval doesn’t play on the album (the always-excellent Tim Yeung, finally freed from the constraints of Divine Heresy, has stepped in for Sandoval, who is still recovering from back surgery), but this the first album to feature David Vincent since Domination, so, y’know, ya take the good ya take the bad ya take ’em both and there have the new Morbid Angel album.
ANYWAY, here’s the album artwork. I have almost no idea what the crap is going on, but I’m digging it anyway.
And here’s the art for the first single, “Nevermore,” which I actually think is even cooler than the album art. I guess “hands” are going to be a big theme here…
“Nevermore” will be released on May 16, with Illud Divinum Insanus to follow on June 7, both via Season of Mist.
Thanks to Antonio Ayala for sending these in!
