Morbid Angel - Covenant

Here is Morbid Angel's major label debut, "Covenant". I know some people say Altars is the best and truest, or that Blessed Are The Sick is the best, but THIS was the first Morbid Angel i ever heard (thanks beavis and butthead), and this one has "Rapture", so I'm posting this immaculately produced death metal juggernaut. Yes, the production here is top notch. everything can be heard very well, from David Vincent's growling vocals and low end, Trey Azagthoth's insane guitar wizardry, and, most importantly, Pete "Commando" Sandoval's metronomically perfect drumming, some of the most intense kit bashing you'll hear, ever. I mean, really, seriously, the drums on this album kill everything in their path. fuck it, this whole album kills everything in its path. from the opening machine gun salvo of "Rapture" to the heavy cheesy doom of "God Of Emptiness", this album is just about as perfect a slab of death metal as you'll ever hear.
