Editorial Reviews

Pestilence has recorded their first record in 15 years. Expect more brutal, heavier and faster songs than any old Pestilence album. The album, entitled Resurrection Macabre, features eleven new tracks and the limited edition first print includes three re-recordings chosen by fans. Out Of The Body, Chemo Therapy and Lost Souls were voted most.

The songs are lyrically more in the vein of "Consuming Impulse". Meaning, they re more reality-style than religious or philosophical. Some songtitles are: "HangMan (Into the mind of an executioner)", "Synthetic Grotesque (Trying to create through cloning)", "Fiend (Drugaddiction)", "Resurrection Macabre (The return of the Pestilence)", "Hate Suicide (Last hours of a suicide-bomber)" just to name a few.

I liked Pestilence back in the 80's. Had the first 2 discs. 'Consuming Impulse' was a blistering and tight death metal album. I really liked it for its intensity. I didnt buy the 2 following discs as of yet, so the review is based less on their experimental sound. Seems as if they went back to the Death metal delivery full force on this, but they did it with many more modern influences.

To tell the truth, it is very well executed, but pretty much what I expected. The sound of the Vocal and Bass drum is great! The songs are avg. Length (4 Min Avg) and Speed intensive, but very controlled. Not too long to bore you and many sick riffs with structure changes. Comes across as a mix of early (Bloody Gore, Leprosy era) Death, Blood Red Throne, Possessed and add touch of Coroner's technicality along with some guttural vocal and toxic waste(literally). I cant say enough about the good quality recording, especially for this style of music which can be hit or miss. It does crank.

The songs themselves are technical but not to the point of overkill. Basic riffs abound and hold your interest long enough to get to the more complex song structures, very 'off' Guitar riffs, good Solo's and incredible Drumming. The blast beats really give this band a kick in the as*.

The music itself isn't groundbreaking, it is just executed well. Has a very fresh/updated sound, but man, the twisted sounding riffs really do get to you. Really dark stuff. The Vocal delivery is what it is, SICK. But perfect for this genre of music. Its more about Brutality than Originality on this comeback disc.

Upon repeated listenings, it only gets better.

OK I will admit I was a bitter at Patrick Mameli when he slagged death metal fans and insulted the intelligence of the very people that buy his music-but I tried putting it in perspective that maybe he was just upset at the scene or industry in general, so I am giving him the benefit of the doubt. I loved Pestilence's first 3 cd's-brutal, technical and fairly original pieces of death metal. I hated Spheres, I know alot of people liked it due to the fusion of jazz and technicality, I on the other hand found it boring and too much fusion for my taste. Resurrection Macabre is a combination of Consuming Impulse/Testimony of the Ancients with a fusion of blast beats. I find the inclusion of the brutal blast beats to actually enhance the band and add to the overall brutality of the disc. Tracks like Horror Detox, Y2H and Devouring Frenzy are brutal fast and pummel the listener. The title track might actually be my fave song. It's a slow very heavy song that just crushes. The thing that makes Pestilence still stand out from some other bands is that they have a signature sound that is Pestilence and their songs are catchy and memorable. Their are guitar solos and the band is still technical, but about as techy as Testimony, none of that Spheres junk. I would have like to hear Tony Choy's bass a little more in the mix, though. Overall the cd is very heavy, incredible production and the introduction of the blast beats adds rather than detracts from the sound. The only reason I feel this is not a 5 is the fact that they re-recorded 3 old classics-Chemo-therapy, Out of the Body and Lost Souls. Both excellent songs in the original versions. I was hoping for the band to mix it up a bit and record the versions as the band sounds now- with the brutal blast beats and kinda make them new again.Read more ›

What a surprise this cd was. I honestly didn't expect a whole lot after not hearing a release from them in so long. I never thought I'd say this, but this is actually as good as Consuming Impulse. I thought the vocals were great, even if it wasn't Martin singing. So many bands from the 90's have lost their originality and have gotten boring over the years, but not Pestilence. This sounds more like the Consuming Impulse cd than Spheres and Testimony, which would be good news to a lot of people. Production is good too. A very complete cd with no fillers. It's not too often you hear a cd nowadays where every song is good. It's nice to see Tony Choy back in the band as well. I got this cd the week and came out and back then I said it was the cd of the year and I still feel that way.

Welcome back indeed, old friends. These guys have been away too long. A stagnant death metal scene really needs this shot in the head! Patrick Mameli(Mameli played all guitars and vocals), Patrick Uterwijk(Uterwijk is pictured but does not play on the tracks) and returning to the group Tony Choy and introducing a new drummer Peter Wildoer who turns up the energy level. Now the performance of this new music is more powerful and more intense than the any of the previous releases. This is not thinking man's death metal like the older chin stroking jazz-prog moments of the older material they left us with. This is like "Consuming Impulse" on mega-steroids,very heavy assault to the body, every song pummels you and you just sit there and take it, Why? 'Cause its awesome! Fans will miss the soothing sounds of their earlier productions but you can't help being impressed with this stuff, bigger, tougher, fatter, balder and uglier than ever. Highly recommended for extreme metal heads, old fans might dig the 3 bonus tracks of older songs redone.
