Line-up (members)

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. One of them being a release on Japanese label Satanic Records on glow in the dark vinyl, red vinyl, splatter vinyl, and black vinyl that's limited to 1000 copies.

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. However, Trey Azagthoth has said in interviews that "Abominations of Desolation" is not really an album and should be considered a demo. The demo-tape version is pictured below, the title is misspelled(?) as "Abomination of Desolation".

Most of the songs were reworked and appeared on later Morbid Angel albums. "Chapel of Ghouls," "Lord of All Fevers and Plague, and "Welcome to Hell" (renamed "Evil Spells") can be heard on Altars of Madness. "Unholy Blasphemies," "Abominations," and "Azagthoth" (renamed "The Ancient Ones") are on Blessed Are the Sick. "Angel of Disease" was recorded for Covenant, and lastly, "Hell Spawn" finally appeared on Formulas Fatal to the Flesh as "Hellspawn: The Rebirth." To date "Demon Seed" is the only song from these sessions that has not been re-recorded for a full-length album.
