ILLUD SH*TUS REMIXUS: MORBID ANGEL STREAMING MORE SONGS THAN ARE ON MOST ALBUMS

I just read on Metal Underground that Morbid Angel are streaming SIXTEEN remixes from their forthcoming  Illud Divinum Insanus II: Nobody Asked for This. And if that seems like a lot, that’s because HOLY SHIT IT IS. For example, the original Illud Divinum Insanus only had eleven cuts on it.

This is the strongest evidence so far that Morbid Angel are, in fact, just pulling the biggest troll in the history of ever on us. THIS RELEASE IS MORE THAN THREE HOURS LONG and features THIRTY-NINE REMIXES all taken from AN ALBUM THAT EVERYONE HATES. And somebody thinks that if they stream sixteen songs from the thing, then, what? We’ll all suddenly be like, “Oh, this isn’t so bad! Y’know, after the first twelve songs, I still wasn’t sold, but right around number thirteen, I started getting really into it!” THAT IS THE WORST PLAN I HAVE EVER HEARD. It would be a safer bet to try and invade China with sticks.

The craziest thing about all of this, though, is that it’s not like this is going to sell zero copies — there really are people who will buy this. Personally, I think all of those people should have to walk around wearing an Illud Divinum Insanus – The Remixes t-shirt at all times as part of a public shaming, like in The Scarlet Letter. I don’t even really wanna embarrass them that much, I just wanna be able to ask them a simple question: “SERIOUSLY?!”

Anyway, the stupid remixes are after the jump. The thing comes out February 28 via Season of Mist. I have tried to listen to this crap three times now because I wanted to write a formal review, but three hours is a full eighth of my day, and life is just too short. So if you make it past the first eight or nine tracks, you’ll have done better than I have.
