Pestilence - Unveil New Album Artwork


Death metallers Pestilence are preparing their new album although the release date is still under wraps. The band's new drummer, David Haley, will be recording drums in February. The band has started to reveal some details about it and you can now check out below the cover art for Obsideo, their upcoming new release.

As previously reported, Pestilence also plans to do some old school shows with songs just from the first three albums, including songs like "Twisted Truth" and "Commandments". However, more details about that are yet to be revealed.

What should I say? Not really impressed by the artwork. More of the same.
And then again: Pestilence is not the Pestilence it used to be anymore. Testimony of the Ancients was their last major achievement.

A little too photo-stock-driven...not a fan of the complete mirror effect on the 'Colosseum-Esq' pieces in the back. Band logo also gets a little lost.

What a fucking joke. Saw it a couple of weeks ago and I'm still baffled at how awful it is.

Lol Marcel don't die. Also, this cover is ridiculous.

"Spheres" was cool though.

Wow, that album cover is terrible! And it actually does look like Seth from Septicflesh made it. haha Helloween's latest album cover actually appears half decent, when compared to that.

I've been very disappointed with the last couple of Pestilence albums, and I really can't see this one subverting that trend. Which is a shame, cos before their original break-up, Pestilence were a brilliant band. "Spheres" is very underrated, and "Testimony Of The Ancients" will always remain one of my fave albums of all time. I will listen to the new album, in the very slim hope they have re-discovered their greatness. But in all likelyhood, I know the album will probably be as bad as the artwork...

Ever since the band got back together their cover art has sucked, and this is no exception.

Yep, another awful album cover. Why don't bands get painters or real artists to do covers anymore. What happened to cool covers like HIgh on Fire's or Graveyard's first two?

Take a time to listen to "Resurrection Macabre" more carefully a couple of times and you'll realize that isn't as bad as you think... it still has some elements from "Testimony".

The eyeballs were just too much. Of all the art here hyped to be absolutely horrendous here, I think this one might have just plummeted to the abyssal nadir of worthlessness. Holy shit. How could any band approve of this?

Well, this is the band that let Doctrine reach store shelves...

Eh I'm not gonna judge a book by it's cover, because Sinister in the past few years have put out some really shitty album art, but I still love the music underneath the art. So who really knows, this could be a solid album.
