PRESTO, “EXISTO” — A WHOLE NEW MORBID ANGEL SONG!
We’re back, bitches! Vince and I were in L.A. all week, although you probably didn’t even miss us ’cause Corey and Anso did such a killer fucking job running shit while we were away. Let’s have another round of applause for them. Seriously. They rule!
So. One thing that Anso covered while we were away was a clip of a new Morbid Angel song, one apparently written specifically to mourn the loss of one of metal’s most excellent bands; now there’s a FULL new Morbid Angel song, “Existo Vulgoré,” so we can really heat up the debate about whether or not the band’s first new offering in forever was worth the wait.
Actually, scratch that: I am in no way, shape, or form ready to make a(n irresponsible, premature) call on this issue yet. I’ve listened to this song a few times now and I really can’t decide what I think. It’s good. I don’t know if it’s the home run for which Morbid Angel fans have been clamoring, but it’s gotta be at least a solid double. I’m also super jet lagged, though, and would like to listen to it again when my brain doesn’t think it’s 5:30 a.m.
So I’m gonna go
take some speed drink some coffee while you guys listen to the song below and then argue about it in the comments section. Morbid Angel’s eagerly anticipated new album, Illud Divinum Insanus, comes out June 7 on Season of Mist.
