Legendary death-metal outfit Morbid Angel are gearing up to release their new album, Kingdoms Disdained, on December 1st via Silver Lining Music. After unleashing its punishing first single "Piles of Little Arms," the Tampa band has teamed up with Revolver to premiere "For No Master," another ripper off the forthcoming LP. Forged in the band's rehearsal space, the track reflects the group's efforts to tap into the unhinged fury of its live shows. "We wanted to get a live, intense feeling on some of the songs," newly returned bassist-vocalist Steve Tucker says of the track, "and this is definitely a great example of what we set out to achieve."
Kingdoms Disdained, the follow-up to 2011's Illud Divinum Insanus, marks Morbid Angel's first record with Tucker in 14 years. "Our new album is definitely heavier, meaner and more death metal," he told us of the new album. "Everybody who was waiting and hoping this would happen, here it is." Pre-order it here.
The band's lauded guitarist, Trey Azagthoth, put things a little more differently – and a lot less seriously. Asked by Revolver to describe the band's shift away from the industrial-flavored Ilud Divinum Insanus, the axeman responded: "Momma's little baby likes shortnin' shortnin', Momma's little baby likes shortnin' bread. Cori-Bell, those weeds are growing faster than you pulling them. Mary-Bell, your daddy watching the way you planting that and it don't look straight…Lilly-Bell, that plow is not gonna plow without a little elbow grease. Momma's little baby likes shortnin' shortnin', Momma's little baby likes shortnin' bread."
But what does it all mean? Your guess is as good as ours.
