I find them a chore to listen to. Altars of Madness has grown on me somewhat, but the rest of their albums are unengaging. Then I saw them live and same thing, great solos, but unengaging songs and performance. I see a lot of shows and they were the most boring headliner I’ve seen all year. OK, Scorpions were worse, but that barely counts.
 
i think morbid angel is a bad idea too but not because i dislike them, just because i feel like i could predict the exact order in which their entire discography would place.
