Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Consuming Impulse was a step forward from Malleus Maleficarum and with the addition of Patrick Uterwijk on guitar the band`s sound was more complete.

The sound on Consuming Impulse is really brutal and rather primitive but still interesting. The lyrics are as lyrics were on most early Death/ Thrash albums about Pain and death in various forms. My favorite songs on the album are Out of the Body ( itīs simply so brutal it always knocks me out, Martin Van Drunen sounds like he is in severe pain on this track), Dehydrated, The Process of Suffocation and The Trauma.

The overall rating is that this is a good and enjoyable Death/ Thrash album. Not essential in any way to prog heads or this site, but itīs a semi classic metal album in my eyes.

Note: Martin Van Drunen later joined Bolt Thrower for touring ( For Victory tour) and Comecon for studio work.

2 stars This album is regarded in death metal circles as somewhat of a classic. I can understand where those who believe this are coming from, even if I don't think it's a very good death metal album. To be fair, I could listen to much worse than this. But that still doesn't say a whole lot.

The music here is purely old school death metal. There are no progressive elements present on this album, and to be honest, there's not much I could recommend to death metal fans on here. The production sounds a bit too muddy at times, even for the late 80s. And except for the occasional guitar riff or drum fill there isn't much that holds my interest. The songs sound too similar to me. If I had listened to this back when I was into brutal death metal like this I probably would have enjoyed it more. Unless I'm feeling nostalgic however, I won't really have any urge or reason to pull this album out and listen to it. Plus I think that other early death metal bands (Death, Napalm Death, etc) played this style much better.

Despite all the negatives I have toward this album though, I can still manage to save it from just one star by adding another one to it. Recommended only to fans of old school death metal or those looking to complete their Pestilence collection, but don't expect too much. Those looking for some more progressive material should check out Testimony of the Ancients and Spheres instead.

3 stars Pestilence - Consuming Impulse (1989)

Pestilence is a Dutch Death/Trash metal band with growling vocals. The sound of the band is absurd in it's heavyness, an element that gave them some fame in the scene. Later on the band would focus on their progressive tendicies, which resulted in the (in progressive metal scenes) celebrated Spheres-album. Now, normally I don't spend many time listening to death metal (I'm a 'classic' progger), but for 1 euro a vinyl I'm willing to try something new.

Take some Metallica, detune the guitars even lower and play faster and heavier and one get's an impression of how Pestilence sounds on this Consuming Impulse album. All songs have that nice panicing vibe and those hilarious death growls, sometimes referred to as vocals. The lyrics are critical towards society, but some nuance seems to be abscent. The cover artwork is good/valuable in it's hopeless design and flawed effect.

All tracks are short, but most of them have many technical guitar riffs and some shredding solo's of both guitarists. Though not very balanced or thoughfull, Pestilence makes a professonal impression. All musicians play their instrument very well.

Conclusion. Saying this is only for collectors and fans might be correct here, for it isn't that much of a progressive record, but it would look as if this isn't a good record. And I do think it is a good death/trash record (especially for a Dutch one). Three stars it is then, but if you don't like this genre, you'd be better of to spend you money elsewhere.

Only recommended to fans of technical and very very heavy metal/trash.

2 stars This album is a small step towards the epic death metal stuff they did on the Testimony album. This album was regarded as a great death metal album when it was released.

3 stars In early 90's Pestilence were one of my favorite death metal bands. I wasn't huge fan Swedish death metal at the time to be honest. Swedish death metal was popular but I prefered American and some British bands (Carcass, Napalm Death). Pestilence were Dutch and I didn't know anything about that ... (read more)

4 stars PESTILENCE are known best as one of the original "progressive death metal" bands alongside DEATH, ATHEIST and CYNIC. But before that transition they were helping push the boundaries of extremity in music and have created an album that is even more brutal than any of the seminal releases in 1989 fr ... (read more)
