Let's celebrate! :hornz: :waa: :ba: :headbang: :lol:

For me, it's the greatest metal album ever. In terms of mood, songwriting, production, it's flawless.
It's the main reason why I picked up the guitar. I wanted to know how they create these sounds, melodies.
I learned all the songs (probably not perfectly), and most of the time, that's what I play on the guitar :lol:

Please, share your thoughts about the album!

And post your covers if you have! :redneck:

I start with my shitty attempt to play the tapping part from Summoning Redemption! :grin:
Sorry for the bad quality, that's the best what I have...

I bought the CD on the release date and the vinyl some years after. I definitely love the record a lot :bang:

If I had to define it, it would surely be like a tank destroying jerks left and right. The most important album of my life, one of the most revolutionary within the genre. Happy 20 Years "Gateways To Annihilation".

Yeah it's definitely where Gojira and Behemoth got a lot of inspiration from when this came out.

It’s “funny” that there is nothing posted about this on the MA facebook page... <_<

I can't imagine that there isn't a simple person in their crew who didn't noticed it.
It's so lame that they can't make a simple post about this. Makeing a "Anniversary Editon" T-shirt or whatever is kinda effortless thing for such a BIG band like Morbid Angel... isn't it? :(

At least their masterpieces are here for us forever ^_^

We had a hard-on bearer cybermetatron who had loads of really well done solos recorded and his channel just seems to have gone. What a bummer. Don't know what happened to him, anyone know?

Caught them in a tiny club in Newport, Wales on this tour (when Jared was subbing on bass & vocals) and they utterly crushed.

This came out in my irc days. I was spending a lot of time on #mp3_deathmetal (I thiiink... there were a lot of variations like #mp3-deathmetal #mp3deathmetal etc., and I forgot which one I was in) and one of the ops had a weekly death metal radio show. He got an advance copy. Of course, he ripped it immediately. We were all floored. Such an amazing album. I later on bought it on release day.

Shoutcast winamp metal radio days... wow, good memories but the quality back then was horrible. :redneck:

So many good times... so much to discover still. I remember it like a sense of wonder, going through these massive file serve lists for interesting things I'd never heard of to queue up and download, or just letting Shoutcast run and having something random and awesome cross my path
