Blessed Are the Sick being the second offical release of Morbid Angel and their 1991 showcases Death Metal at its finest with amazing riffs, great melodies and well-written lyrics. All the lyrics are included in the booklet including linernotes written by Trey Azagthoth and many nice photographs of the band. Allmusic gave the album 4.5/5 and I agree and up the ante to 5. 5/5.

Yeah, after Morbid Angel’s “Altars Of Madness” they decide to create chaos in a more laid back fashion – slower yet heavier but just as deadly and gloomy. This CD has better sound quality than their debut and a more doom death feel to it along with being a lot gloomier. Yet they still retain their typical Morbid Angel chaos with typical blast beats without using them, and displaying the wicked guitar skills of Trey, and the deeper and more growly vocals from David – the vocals are more deeper and more demonic compared to the more “possessed” sound in Altars. This is probably my favorite album by these guys. If you’re into Morbid Angel, this is a must have following their debut.
This is my favorite Morbid Angel album, possibly my favorite death metal album, and in my top 10 of favorite albums ever. They succeed in capturing the raw primal energy and sense of freedom that is at the heart of the best metal. I’ve been listening to this album for 14 years and is even better today than it was then! I can say that of only a handful of metal albums. The guitars and drums combine into a seething thick groove, and David Vincent’s vocals are in top form. Some of Trey’s solos on here are just unbelievable. What gets me the most about it is how much GROOVE they have going on…even at blast beat speeds! Sick!!!!!!
I owned this album in its original release form, but I bought it in it’s newly remastered form and it does sound much better. It’s much louder now, and there is more clarity…you can really crank it and hear every little thing going on! I highly recommend this new release.
I had to write this review in hopes of offset the morons who have seen fit to down “Blessed Are The Sick”… really, if you can’t appreciate this album, you simply do NOT understand death metal — end of story. This is Morbid Angel’s greatest album, and it has many dimensions to it. It is pure evil set to music… everything you want it to be! The guitar work is GENIUS!!! The drumming is magnificent… lyrics, vocal delivery… what more could you want? This is, EASILY, among the greatest death metal albums EVER… I’ll see you burning in the Sea of the Absu…
This album is perhaps the definitive death metal band. This album is not boring at all. There are a few “classical” pieces written in there. The song desolate ways is awesome and could be put on a new age compilation cd. The album begins with Fall From Grace…a song that has some of the best death metal lyrics of all time. Dave Vincent has a great gutteral but understandable voice when he sings (screams/growls). There are some awesome guitar riffs in this album…..listen to the mid point in brainstorm. On the whole this is a death metal master pice, however, the lyrics are quite hateful towards christians but being a death metal fan perhaps this doesnt bother you. There are a couple songs on the record I dont like because of the talk about putting infant entrails on upside down crosses. Not my cup of tea but whatever floats your boat.
