Recorded in 1986 as their first album, with David Vincent producing, but never put out. They finally released it through Earache after a series of bootlegs were produced. Do not list this release as a demo or compilation. It is specified, on the cover, that it was intended to be their first full-length album, yet unreleased, making "Altars of Madness" their proper debut.
The original CD version contains 4 bonus tracks with a few guitar solos altered from their original versions. 2002 re-Issue including 'Immortal Rites' bonus video.
The triumphant return of the architects of extreme metal! Illud Divinum Insanus is the first Morbid Angel album in over ten years featuring David Vincent! This 9th album for these heralded heathens summons the expected fury of their past and is sure to please their hordes of die-hard fans. Also as expected, these heavy hymns appear progressed, inverted, electrified and hauntingly insane.
