1 stars So Pestilence reformed and went back to their roots. Death metal it is then. I wonder why. Pestilence had set themselves up very well with Testimony Of The Ancient and Spheres as the thinking man's death metal band. But on this album, Pestilence goes back to Square 1. Well, this is the natural successor to their Consuming Impulse album. It is like Testimony Of The Ancient was never released. Pestilence has also ditched all references to (the band) Death on this album. What is left is semi-brutal death metal and just that. It is not brutal and technical enough for the die-hard death metal fan and they are ditching the fanbase (including everyone from PA) they got after Spheres. This album is a mystery. On the other side; they have done some good metal festivals on the back of this album so I guess everyone is happy.

This is a death metal album and not a good one either. I am still a fan of the likes of CANNIBAL CORPSE. This album is not anywhere near their standard and it just falls flat on it's face. No new ideas, just generic death metal. I have heard everything here before. I am resurrected macabre by this album. Poor, poor, poor.

1.5 stars
