Best Morbid Angel Albums

Morbid Angel is a Tampa, Florida, United States-based Death Metal band assembled in 1984. They, along with Deicide, Death, Possessed, Autopsy, Suffocation, Obituary, Massacre and a handful of others were crucial in the development of the death metal genre and its standards. Their songs are complex in arrangement, owing to the considerable technical skills of both guitarist Trey Azagthoth and drummer Pete Sandoval.
To date, they have 8 Studio albums (all of them are just EPIC! ).
So, I think it will be hard to choose and vote for a Morbid Angel album for you, the voters.
Let the voting BEGIN!

The Top Ten

1 Altars of Madness Altars of Madness

One of the best Death Metal albums of all time. Every second from the start to the very end is a 100% great. No crappy interludes. Very rarely is there an album that every single song is excellent. The speed, the solos, the composition, everything is perfect.

Killer album next to covenant only idiots will not like this album

I don't think I'll ever be able to make a top MA list... They're all just so good
But if I do then My top 5 will be :
1. Alters of Madness
2. Covenant
3. Gateways to Annihilation
4. Blessed Are the Sick
5. Domination

I came while listening to this once.

2 Covenant Covenant

I love Altars of Madness and Blessed are the Sick, but Covenant is the best of all. Flawless, ultra fast and brutal. Even more catchy than the other two, and that's saying something!

There are only a few albums that you can classify as perfect and this is one of them, from beginning to end there are no weak spots. Songs are well written, leads are beyong amazing and the sound of the albums is legendary with the help of Metallica's old producer of great records like Ride, Master and Justice. A must have.

One of the best death metal albums ever!..the vocal performance in this album sounds really awesome! - nooreldeen

I love this album best, this was the first Death Metal-album I really appreciated!

3 Blessed Are the Sick Blessed Are the Sick

A pure majestic master class in musical beauty and Death Metal brutality.

No way I don't like at all this one it better covenant and domination

Classic album in every sense.

Greatest death metal album ever. Better than AOM

4 Gateways to Annihilation Gateways to Annihilation

This should be number one in my opinion, an absolute masterpiece that takes you into a cold dark Lovecraftian nightmare, altars is great but there isn't a single death metal album remotely like this one, its just so original, fast and furious mixed with slow and crushing, the vocals are outstanding, morbid angel at there peak, if your going to try any morbid angel album get this one.

YES! That is exactly how I describe this album. Somehow, impossibly so, it is really fast and really slow at the same time. This was like the 4th Morbid Angel album I listened to, and it is so original and amazing. Not just great solely because it's original.

A singularity in death metal. Somehow fast and slow at the same time. It really is a 90% death metal album and a 10% doom album, I love it!

Great album, great tour with Slayer and Pantera.

5 Domination Domination

Great album again, definitely get this if you're a MA fan. I like this album almost just as much as the three above it

Sick - proof death metal doesn't have to be fast to be good - I could listen to

The production is huge and equals the band's major status, songwriting near perfection, amazing Rutan's leads... Apart from some the childish lyrics this is an absolute masterpiece.

6 Formulas Fatal to the Flesh Formulas Fatal to the Flesh

Invocation of the Continual One is a masterpiece

This album is leagues better than Domination

The riffs are fantastic on this. Heavily underrated album and one of Trey Azagthoths most creative.

9 Thy Kingdom Come
10 Illud Divinum Insanus Illud Divinum Insanus

Worst album by Morbid Angel yet. hell this is the st. anger of death metal this deserves to be on the bottom of the list -

I want to cut my throat open every time anyone mentions this album
