Last one on Thu Apr 28, 5: FadeToBlack May 4th Comments. Domination is a testament to creativity and atmospheric, "dominating" death metal; it represents Morbid Angel at their peak, both success-wise and musically. I was growing impatient and so my friend reccomended domination. Damn, I was sure that Domination was the first album without David Everything seems to be right in the mix, and not an instrument is left out. Inquisition Burn with me 4.
There is nothing ceremonial about this album. As planned, their popularity increased and the record sold well. Now we've got "This Means War". True, there are still some good riffs that have managed to sneak onto the album, and the solo work is still what one would expect, but the overall composition of the songs leaves a lot to be desired. Domination also contains David Vincent's worst vocals. And when the band revisits the high tempo glory of their earlier works, the format is a little easier to follow and painted with a brilliant set of methodical lead guitar elements that go beyond the typical barrage of Slayer-inspired whammy bar madness and frenetic scale runs. Once in awhile listen for intense headbanging recommended for this album.

This song is essentially just a mass of power chords and pinch harmonics that makes for an interesting listen with its low end chugging coupled with the startling murky effect added to the vocals for this particular rout of blasphemy. The dark ambience and classicalovertones were deeply engraved into the context, as Azagthoth credited Mozart for inspiration. At the same time Morbid Angel came out with this disc, the nordic bands Burzum, Dissection, and Mayhem had already encountered more than their fair share of negative press. The instruments, vocals, and lyrics, despite all their implied aggression cannot muster up the misanthropy of albums like 'Covenant'.
Description: The lineup consisted of Trey Azagthoth handling theentire guitar assault and keyboard work along with Sandoval and Vincent in their respective positions, as Brunelle exited the band in Eyes to See is more "mystical" sounding I'm not really sure how else to explain it and Nothing But Fear is particularly impressive, with its intelligent lyrics and an outstanding solo from Erik. Ceasers Palace is a piece of shit. Including some Start-stop riffs. A sort of epic chorus ensues before being cutoff by another of trey's masterpieces, a good mix of shred and trippy dissonance.
