In a recent interview with AOL’s Noisecreep, MORBID ANGEL bassist/vocalist David Vincent stated about “Illud Divinum Insanus”, “It’s awesome, absolutely awesome. I just want the damn thing out, but it’s hurry up and wait. That’s the story of the business. I wish it was out immediately. We are doing special packaging for it, and that doesn’t help my anxiety of wanting to get it out.”
He continued, “We made a masterpiece. I am going to call it that. There is not one bad track on this record. Of course I am going to say that, but I don’t normally say such things. It is very unique and very diverse. We didn’t go through the normal channels with production, so it’s that’s much more special because of the decisions we made.”
He added, “We have grown out of the moniker of death metal. We call ourselves extreme music. There are too many boxes to put it in — so many descriptors! We play extreme music and it encompasses everything from incredibly fast and articulate fretboard gymnastics to the sickest, most moaning of riffs, to the usual things we do. We take it for a twist.”
The “Nevermore” single will be made available on May 16 as a digital download and seven-inch vinyl single. The B-side is an exclusive version of new song “Destructos Vs. The Earth”, remixed by COMBICHRIST.
