Morbid Angel, Live in London

Live Review

Venue: Islington Academy, London

Florida’s death metal pioneers reconvene for Covenant

Leading tonight’s charge along the full death metal spectrum, UK marauders UNFATHOMABLE RUINATION [7] adhere to a strict diet of remorseless and frill-free, if groove and grind-ploughed brutality. There are precious few bands that execute this stuff with such braggadocio.

In contrast, the cheerfully veteran BENEDICTION [8] still kill the old-school way, their thunderous, mostly mid-paced attack scratching an itch for the diehards while exhibiting more than enough furious energy to drag everyone else along too. It’s particularly pleasing to see vocalist Dave Hunt enjoying himself in a way that his duties with Anaal Nathrakh necessarily preclude.
