The original post

Wow its great I get to start an official Pestilence thread.I cant say i'm a diehard fan or anything,cuz I haven't been listening to them that long.Well anyway I finally got the pleasure of buying "Consuming Impulse" and that is definitley brutal death metal at its best."Echoes of Death" is the highlight track for me it has every good element to making a great song.I also have "Testimony of the Ancients" as well,since I bought two from the vault,it is alright to me,its more of a progressive death cd i'd say.Its not that I dont like progressive death,its just not at the same level of intesity as "Consuming Impulse".I want to get the first album,if I can find it for a decent price,as well as "Spheres".So what are your thoughts on this band?

I was able to listen to the first 8 or 9 songs from the new album on the way to work today and it seems kinda average so far... it sounds great on a sound system but I bet if I listened to it on headphones I'd turn it off and put in Consuming Impulse.

Dehydration II so far is my favorite song on the album.

The new album makes me furious, since it's such a transparently disingenuous POS.

Just because it sucks doesn't mean it's disingenuous. It's not like they're going to make a lot of money from that album anyways.

First, they may not make a lot of money for it, but they may have unrealistic hopes.
Second, it's possible to be insincere and manipulative without monetary reward as the goal or sole goal.

Nah, I still think they only reformed because of a mid-life crisis or something. They're smart enough to know that metal doesn't sell nowadays, unless it's extremely trendy pop metal released on a mainstream label. I still think that Resurrection Macabre is a sincere attempt to relive Pestilence's past glory days, and the result was a very average death metal album.

I just love how some people always seem to think to know what goes on in Patrick Mameli's head.

Yeah, I seem to be one of the few people who agrees with you. I also think that the album turned out pretty good. The riffs are really awesome, and Mameli still has a nice growl. Hate Suicide would be my personal favorite song on this record.

I love Resurrection Macabre. The album has nearly no weak songs. It's brutal, but also kinda catchy. I guess you can say the same thing about Consuming Impulse. Just awesome Death metal =)

HangMan makes me smile sometimes because of the association with the word game, but you know it's not exactly about that ^^

The new album is a great album, very good sonority, death metal at its best! The first two songs are very powerful, giving an lots of energy and making the path for an headbanging album! Very good job from Pestilence!

I was really disappointed with "Ressurrection Macabre". Aside from maybe 2 or 3 songs, the rest of the songs sounded indistinguishable from one another. Very generic.

Pestilence is a great band. I got into them when Consuming Impulse came out and saw them when they opened for Death on the Spiritual Healing tour. Consuming Impulse and Testimony of the Ancients are still my favorites...although I don't mind the stuff that has come since. IMO Consuming Impulse is one of the best death metal albums of that era...I still listen to it on a regular basis.
