Morning Star is the seventh full length album by Swedish metal band Entombed, and was released in January 2002. The album marked a return for the band to a more typical death metal sound[citation needed].

Contents notes[edit]

The lyrics for the song "I For An Eye" were written by Orvar Säfström who was also stand-in vocalist for the band in 1991 on the EP Crawl.[3]

The song "When It Hits Home" draws influence from the 1997 film The Devil's Advocate.

The lyrics to "Chief Rebel Angel" are in several cases based on quotes from The Devil's Advocate film:

  • John Milton: "I'm here on the ground with my nose in it since the whole thing began! I've nurtured every sensation man has been inspired to have! I cared about what he wanted and I never judged him! Why? Because I never rejected him, in spite of all his imperfections! I'm a fan of man!"
  • John Milton: "Don't get too cocky, my boy. No matter how good you are... ...don't let them see you coming. That's the gaffe, my friend. You gotta keep yourself small. Innocuous. Be the little guy. You know, the nerd, the leper. The shitkicking surfer. Look at me. Underestimated from day one. You'd never think I was a master of the universe, would you?"
  • John Milton: "I have been watching. Couldn't help myself. Watching. Waiting. Holding my breath. But I'm no puppeteer, Kevin. I don't make things happen. Doesn't work like that. ... It's like butterfly wings. Once touched, they never get off the ground. I only set the stage. You pull your own strings."
