Morbid Angel, Dark Funeral, Grave 

When: Thu., Oct. 11, 7 p.m. 2012
Price: $25-30
Remember that androgynous Chris Crocker fellow who sobbed all over YouTube in 2007, pleading that the cruel world leave poor Britney Spears alone? I think it's time for Morbid Angel to get an advocate like him. Their most recent release, Illud Divinum Insanus, was the most anticipated, then universally hated and publicly flogged, metal album of 2011. Rightfully so; Morbid Angel's dark wave and industrial experimentations were certainly an ill-advised step for a revered death-metal band to take, especially coming out of an eight-year dry spell. Then came the remix album. It's almost as if they responded to their diehard fans' backlash by producing something they'd hate even worse, just so they would forget about the disappointment of Illud. Whatever the case, it's time to move on and enjoy the show. Let's all stop using Illud as a benchmark for all things shitty and just forget it ever happened. Morbid Angel is seemingly not going anywhere, and ideally they've learned from their catastrophic mistakes. ARIS WALES
