"Fall From Grace" begins with mid-paced riffs that convey a sense of doom and despair. Sandoval's drumming does well to crush any bits of hope from your withering soul. Just under a minute in, the pace quickens and it becomes apparent that David Vincent's vocals have altered, to an extent. They are still, easily, recognizable while being a bit deeper than before. The images that come to mind are not so much of suffering souls, burning at the fiery depths. No, here one gets the sense of damned souls reveling in the decadence of their own damnation. Trey Azagthoth and Richard Brunelle compliment one another's guitar-playing very well, as the solos flow naturally throughout the soundscape. Near the end, clean and ominous vocals make a sinister declaration:
 
"I ride the flesh and the sinners of hell
I am Belial
I bend my knee not but for my selfish desire"

I'm gonna be honest. I'm brand new to Morbid Angel. But since I discovered them I fell in love with those first 3 albums so I decided to represent each one. I love Death metal vocals that can be understood. Also its hard to write satanic lyrics without sounding cheesy but they did a great job.

This was the first album of theirs that I bought funnily enough. I must have listened to Covenant too as I have four songs saved from both these albums combined. For me the songs that worked were awesome and I didn't like the others, but the songs that work are epic! 

 

I'm not a fan of vocals that cannot be understood either. This is probably the only death metal band that I have listened to and liked some of their music - some of it is really well put together :)
