2 stars OH, NOOO! Pestilence-progressive rock???? Don't get me wrong: the music is here nothing but death-metal ...and it has nothing to do with progressive music. The music is brutal, with lots of growling voices. I was listening to this kind of music in high-school and the music of Pestilence was in my town very known between the metal kids. Pestilence was a standard death metal band...and still it is. We can talk about a progressive music only on Spheres. In another words, we have here a sample of extremity in music, and death metal was that period at his golden era marked by speed, force, noisy riffs and growling voice. The techno-death parts (I mean some pseudo-progressive parts) on this album are very difficult to catch, because of the musical violence and the speed drumming section.If it would be to rate death metal bands I would give 4,5 stars, but as progressive rock, sorry, 1,5 only!

Sachis | 2/5 |
