My favorite is Covenant. It has some of my favorite songs- Rapture and Blood on my Hands. I also really like Angel of Disease because it stands out and has some great guitarwork. All Morbid Angel albums have a great atmosphere to them, but this is one of the more consistent releases.

Edit - nah, fav is Altars of Madness

Morbid Angel is my all-time favorite Death Metal band. I love their sound. It's really old-school. Well, at least on their first 4 albums. Their first few albums are my favorite, but I'm unable to choose which one is my definite favorite. It's either "Domination" or "Covenant".

But lets face it Steve Tucker has nothing on David Vincent

I personally found Steve Tucker's much more powerful than Vincent's, but I'd say that Vincent's vocals fit in the first three albums best and Tucker's the last three, with 'Domination' somewhere in between. I'd like to hear what Tucker could have done on the earlier albums too, but I've only seen a few live videos, but they do kick ass.

I agree with that... Vincent vocals' main characteristic is certainly not "power", but its raw force is amazing and overall is a far better vocalist than Tucker if you ask me.

force, scorn, and, well, enunciation. you can understand him - which makes his vocals even more impressive.

For me enunciation doesn't make any difference since I just understand some random words from sang english hehe

I think Steve Tucker is an excellent vocalist and performed quite well on each of the albums. I also think David Vincent is great, but his style is more orthodox and has greater mass appeal. He was also lucky enough to be part of the band during the Alters and Covenant eras, which were definitely better received. So, I think it is unfair to call Steve Tucker inferior to David Vincent.

Domination is my favorite, but it's a close tie with Covenant.

Blessed would be next, followed (closely) by Altars.

As for the rest, I enjoy the music, but without David Vincent the vocals just sound like generic death metal in my opinion.

I don't even think I could fill a CD with the song's I like from FFF, Gateways and Heretic. And none of them even come close to the reason Morbid Angel is my favorite death metal band. Stuff like God of Emptiness, Inquisition, & Dawn of the Angry are decidedly lacking in the last few albums.

Granted, I love every album up to (and including) Domination, Covenant is by far my favorite. The nailed it on the head with this album! There isn't ONE thing that makes it the best, its a mix of everything from the guitars, drumming and classic Morbid Angel vocals. It was hard between Covenant and Altars, even though they're different albums, Alters is just classic! I have a prefence to his vocals on Altars as well.....

I voted "Altars of Madness". "Blessed are the Sick..." comes closer for me than this poll says.

Altars Of Madness and Blessed Are The Sick are just about equal musically. Blessed has a creepier atmosphere that I enjoy though, so I'm gonna go with Blessed rather than Altars.

I'm surprised I haven't voted in this poll yet as it seems to have been around for ages.. But my vote goes to Blessed are the Sick. It's one of my favourite albums, not just from Morbid Angel or of Death Metal, but of any genre, ever.

The songwriting is top-notch, and as ForeverDarkWoods just said, it has a creepy atmosphere - rather befitting a band with such a name! There's quite a lot of variation throughout the album - fast parts, doomy parts, groove, catchiness, and vocal patterns that compliment the flow of the songs without being cheesy.

Also, I think it has the best production of a Morbid Angel album so far. Everything is clearly audible whilst retaining the heaviness. Even the instrumental tracks are really good on this album, unlike some of the filler instrumentals on some of their other albums. Desolate Ways in particular is a beautiful haunting acoustic guitar piece.

It's not what I like to see. Though still an excellent album, Blessed are the sick is my least favorite of the Vincent-era albums, while this poll would suggest Formulas to be their worst, and I think that is completely wrong. Not a single vote for that album?

I'm not sure if I'd put it over 'Gateways..' but it definitely is better than domination or heretic imo.

well things have changed a little since I last posted that. Personally I think "Covenant" should have more votes, I think it's their best

I would go with Altars Of Madness on this one. Although Covenant and Blessed Are The Sick albums are pretty fine of death metal evilness too Generally I quite like Morbid Angel, considering them also as one of top death metal bands of course.

I really like it too. Ive heard a lot of fans slating it, but I dont get why. And "Where The Slime Live" is a monster of a song. <3

Anyways, my fave Morbid Angel album is "Blessed Are The Sick". It was the first album by them I heard, and its atmosphere is unmatched by any of their other albums. The beautiful instrumental pieces are the perfect foil for crushing classics like "Day Of Suffering" and "Fall From Grace". xD One of the best death metal albums ever.
