Abominations of Desolation is the demo album[2] by American death metal band Morbid Angel. While it was originally recorded in May 1986, the band did not release it at the time due to their dissatisfaction with the final product.[3] These recordings would later be released in 1991 at the decision of the band's record label, Earache Records.[1]
