What do you think of him? I never saw him live with Morbid Angel actually.

Me neither, only on videos.

He's very boring on stage, has no charisma and only sends out an arrogant attitude. Really dislike him as a bandmember. His solo's aren't much good either, vaguely trying to imitate Erik Rutan but fails miserably at it.

I wasn't a big fan of Thor either but atleast he had his own style and was a nice hard-on bearer. Even Tony was cool on stage, awesome metal attitude and great playing.

Dallas Toler-Wade would be awesome in Morbid Angel.

I'm glad Rutan followed his own path, with his studio and all. The records he has produced are true gems for the most part.

I don't like his production but he's a great musician. I love Hate Eternal and he was awesome in Morbid Angel.

i will always think of vadimvon as the moron he was back when he joined mabb before he was in the band ... it was kind of hilarious when he actually joined, like in a wtf way, but then MA was very much already wtf with illud and everything

i guess that was pre-2009 and we don't have any posts from that era

he also had some buddies that joined who talked about how great of a hard-on bearer he was. I remember one saying something like "he'd give you the shirt off his back!"

Yea, those were the days when crap like how the MA website was designed used to be a big deal to us. I remember making a big fuss out of Vadimvon's promotion of his own branded content above the band's on the website, even wrote a complaint to Trey on Myspace about that which he acknowledged and resultantly made Vadimvon take down the changes on the MA website. We never liked the dude and he never liked us.

I remember all of the above. I guess the latest thing that highlighted his shittiness was:

Solar Guitars came out with a Morbid Angel signature guitar sometime last year or so... Which turned out was Dan Vadim Von's signature guitar. Imo someone like that doesn't deserve to have a marketed instrument, he's essentially hired help and probably a few of us hardonbearers here are better players. I haven't ever encountered anyone who is a 'fan' of Vadim Von. I wonder how many of those guitars they actually even sold.

...anyways, turns out he soon dropped Ola in favour of Ibanez when offered some guitars from them. No loyalty, only self interest. I heard some similar stories since. Doucher.

he also gratuitously employed the eyecandy filter suite in his designs, which was already gauche when every photoshop hack (like myself) downloaded it off of random warez sites in 1998

He plays ok live, I did see him mess up once, Steve literally laughed about it on stage. I met him before the show, last time I saw them, it was a very weird encounter.

I was at the San Francisco show in 2019 when Morbid Angel toured with Cannibal Corpse on the Decibel tour. Erik was in Cannibal, filling in for Pat. Me and some other fans were there early. The Cannibal Corpse guys were awesome, hanging out with us, signing autographs, taking pictures.

Dan Vadim Von was out there not talking to anyone, he had his head down hiding his face under the hood of his zip up sweater. I could still tell it was him. I wanted to be friendly so I yelled "hey Dan" he looked up at me and stared at me with an annoyed look on his face, then awkwardly grumbled "hey" then looked down at the ground again. Maybe he is just socially awkward. I thought he did a good enough job live though. I've seen them with the current lineup 3 times now and also 3 times previously. I uploaded my video about that show to youtube. I didn't mention the part about Dan though lol. I was near his side of the stage at the show.
