The title track ‘Morbid Tales’ gives off an odor you could immediately identify as coming from an older and already putrefying body. The obvious heavy chromaticism and danceable rhythms that sometimes come through in this track will be traded away by the marching rhythms of Celtic Frost that move only in one direction as we hear on ‘Procreation (of the Wicked)’.

Here is where the band comes up with its characteristic style and sound, and everything after is but variations and embellishments on the same thing. Here is also where they play songs that will later figure in To Mega Therion with a hellish zest that is missing from future interpretations..."
