But seriously, what I meant was that Domination had a big sound, was very song driven, and Vincent's personality was stamped over all the tracks. Formula's was the complete opposite: dry, paired down brutality, non linear structures...it had to be. If they'd carried on from where Domination left off they would have probably made Illud there and then.


Yes, I have lots of OCD Very Happy

However, I wasn't clear enough in my previous post: I like Formulas A LOT, I was just saying that it didn't share the essence of M.A's previous albums but Formulas is awesome (in fact, I bought the tape in 1998 shortly after it wsas released).

And yes, Formula was the complete opposite of the first Vincent's era.

Well, only 6% of the forum voted for it, so I wouldn't say it's overrated exactly...

1. Covenant.
2. Abominations of Desolation (Satanic Records mix)
3. Altars of Madness
4. Formulas Fatal To The Flesh
5. Blessed Are The Sick. It would be higher if the production was not so bad.
6. Domination
7. Gateways


They peaked on Formulas in my opinion and should have just ended there.

Altars is their finest hour, with Abominations and Blessed not being far behind. Covenant was their last decent album.

[quote="vitriolicexcursions"] Meanwhile, people still drool over and worship Incantation and Immolation, both of who's albums sound strikingly similar after the first three. Morbid Angel always lays down a different sound with each album, something that aught not be taken for granted. Also, with the whole fast/slow album style rotation, Formulas and Gateways really completely define and expand each tempo root. That's where Heretic somewhat fails as an album, as I feel like Trey wasn't really sure what to do with another fast album, whether to make it a fast Gateways, to repeat Formulas, or to try something totally different, which he did, to mixed results. The slowest songs on Heretic are the best, the break/downtempo passages are the most thrilling, and the fastest songs are the most generic. Steve Tucker and atmosphere really save that album, much more than can be said for unmentionable "I" album, which picked up where David Vincent's Morbid Angel left off.

Great comment!

formulas fatal to the flesh, i recall going to tower records in the mid 90s after seeing Where The Slime Live on some metal show that came on at midnight and was hosted by a bald dude for awhile. they would play about an hour or two of music videos. and still, i decided to buy formulas fatal to the flesh instead of domination. not a bad first death metal album.

How anyone can hear Formulas and say it's not even "decent" is beyond my comprehension skills. Perhaps I should start doing yoga so I can learn a position to get my head that far up my ass.

Formulas is great. It is the last album where they really pushed the barometer for speed and fury. Hell, it even has one of their best songs they ever wrote which is "Prayer of Hatred." I believe after they wrote that it was their way of telling the world "David is gone, sorry for Domination and enter Steve Tucker." That album is also extremely influential for Nile because you can hear how much they were influenced on Catacombs from it, so definitely an important album in their catalogue.

Formulas only came out 2 months before Nile's debut, so I don't think it influenced them... but the bands did tour a lot together when those two albums came out, so I'm sure there was mutual respect and interest.
