Morbid Angel- Kingdoms Disdained (Album Review)

Musicians: Morbid Angel
Album Title: Kingdoms Disdained 
Genre/ Subgenre: Death Metal
Label: Silver Lining Music 
Release date: Dec. 1, 2017

The mighty Morbid Angel is back motherfuckers! After the disastrous Illud Divinum Insanus, which had featured the return of original frontman and bass player, David Vincent (who ended up leaving the band not that long after) Steve Tucker has come back to the fold. He has once again taken over vocals and bass duty, something he had not done since 2003's Heretic. The resulting album, Kingdoms Disdained, is a very welcome return to the band's majestic form. And, can I say that the cover art to it is one of the coolest of 2017?

From a musician standpoint, few bands can hold a candle to Morbid Angel. They have, after all, made some of the finest and greatest albums in death metal history. This album is here to remind us of this fact and fucking cement it in our collective minds. Pete Sandoval may no longer be drumming, but former Abysmal Dawn member Scott Fuller does a good job blasting and pounding out behind the kit. Of course, Trey Azagthoth remains one of the greatest guitarists in all of extreme metal. They are complemented by Dan Vadim Von, also on guitar, and Tucker's bass and vocals which are at their best ever, seething with menace, evil, and fury.

The album's first track is "Piles of Little Arms", a pummeling and driving bit of ferocity. "D.E.A.D" opens with a furious attack of blast beats that goes into a head smashing and unrelenting sound. My favorite track on the album, "Garden of Disdain", has a driving riff and pounding drum and bass assault that will cause your neck to fuckin' break from wanting to bang it so goddamn hard. There is sort of locomotive like intro to "Architect and Iconoclast" that leads into a grinding and battering sound that crushes with its heaviness. "Declaring the New Law" is a perfect chance to hear Tucker's voice at its most evil and threatening, resulting in a marvelously dark song. By the time, the final track, the fast and flesh shredding "The Fall of Idols", comes in there is no doubt that one of the true gods of the death metal sub-genre are back to reclaim their crown.

The album is produced by Morbid Angel, themselves, and death metal producer extraordinaire Eric Rutan. As one would expect the resulting production is excellent. It helps the music to sound deep and crushingly heavy. It definitely adds to brutality and helps to give that final push towards the classic and old school death metal sound that this album exemplifies.

Kingdoms Disdained is the best album that Morbid Angel has put out since Domination. Not just that, but it is also one of the best death metal albums of 2017 and the comeback of the year. If you have counted Morbid Angel out of the game, it is time to shut up and reconsider that thought pattern. You will be able to experience this masterpiece for yourself tomorrow, Dec. 1, 2017, when Kingdoms Disdained is unleashed into the world.

NYCC 2017: Sat: Best of Cosplay (and more!), Part 2

Sorry for the delay on the second part of the best of NYCC 2017's best cosplay, but let's not waste anymore time and get right to it!

Friendship is magic, after all!
Ollie is in deep shit! 
 GREAT family cosplay!
Jason wants you, motherfucker! 
 They REALLY look like Aria and Little Finger!

Young Justice forever!

From what I hear Swamp Thing (below) spent everyday that he was at the con without going to the bathroom! Cause, well, with this suit he just could not. That is some dedication!


Cory Smith at artist alley, doing some art for a fan.

 Laura Palmer of "Twin Peaks" is one of the greatest cosplays not just of NYCC, but that I have ever seen! I just had to complement her on her awesome work. Can, I say that I also was totally crushing on her? She's gorgeous and she likes one of the best series in the history of TV!  
 
 This Chun-Li cosplaer is excellent and stunning! 
 Man, it was hot as balls on this October day. This dude must have been dying in his xenomorph cosplay. But, it is cool as fuck!
 
 One of the best Superman, I have ever seen! 
 COBRA!!!!!!!
 
 

This gorgeous Captain America (below) cosplayer did an excellent job and drew a lot of attention from fans and photographers, deservedly so, may I add!

 The most original cosplay of the day, if not entire con, goes to this person doing the Jacob Javits Center (building NYCC is held at)!
The beautiful and soothing sounds of Songbird Ocarina was a nice way to end my day!

That's for now. When next I post on NYCC 2017, you will see my latest adventures as the Punisher!

(Video) A Very Hot and Sexy Interview with Mandy Muse at Exxxotica 2017

At Exxxotica NJ 2017, I got to interview Mandy Muse who is, in my opinion, one of the hottest, most beautiful, and very best performers in porn, today. In person, she has such an energetic and fun personality and vibe to her, that it is impossible to not love her even more. The result is an interview that came out very sexy and hot as fuck. In it, she talks about getting into the adult world, anal sex, her adventure loving life style, and more.

You can see it in the video, below.
