Urk of Monster conducted an interview with MORBID ANGEL vocalist/bassist David Vincent at this year’s NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, a massive music-products convention that took place January 24-27 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. You can now watch the chat below.
In a recent interview with Full Metal Jackie‘s nationally syndicated radio show, Vincent stated about the band’s latest album, “Illud Divinium Insanus”, “One thing about MORBID ANGEL is that there’s never been any rules and it’s an interesting perspective. We just kind of go in and do what we do, and sometimes it blossoms; every flower is a different color and a different smell. This album, it surprises people, a couple of tracks on there, and then there’s a couple of other tracks that are as MORBID ANGEL as you can get. People are coming around. It was slow going at first — people were going, ‘What are these guys doing here?’ and night after night, I’m getting comments, people are like, ‘I finally really listened to it and I really like it. It just took me a while.’ That’s no different than some of the other records we’ve done in the past, so everything is going as planned.”
“Illud Divinum Insanus” sold around 3,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 141. The effort marked MORBID ANGEL‘s first CD to feature Vincent since 1995’s “Domination”.
