While I like all Pestilence albums, I have my favourites and least favourites. The first album, Malleus Maleficarum, was their death/thrash introduction, good stuff but only a stepping stone in my ears. It wasn't until Consuming Impulse that things started sounding really heavy and evil. Proper death metal, the way I like it. Then came their masterpiece, Testimony of the Ancients. My personal favourite, the riffs, god damn, the riffs! Spheres was the follow up and it was ok. No, it was good, but not as good as it could've been. I'll refrain from going into detail about these albums, you probably know them already! Then their was the come back album... some loved it, others hated it. Maybe to some it felt a little contrived? It did sound like a 'modern Pestilence', but it was still good because it didn't sound like a 're-hashed Pestilence' and I'd prefer have a modern sounding Pestilence album like Resurrection Macabre than a Pestilence that seems to be rehashing their classics or no Pestilence at all.

Now to the current album, the follow up to R.M, and boy, I did like R.M before, but after hearing Doctrine, it kind of shines a dark light on why R.M isn't good enough for a Pestilence album... Doctrine was said to have mixed the heaviness of Consuming Impulse, with the theatrics of Testimony of the Ancients with a clear modern element as showcased on R.M.

This guys recorded one of my favorite death metal albums of all times "Consuming.." so I always wanted to hear more of them. I have listened death metal for over 25 years so I do not get impressed easily by new recordings. Considering that Pestilence is an 80's death metalers gang I needed to hear more. I really got amazed since the very beginning with a really good intro and then slow technical riffing with the definitely Pestilence sound there. Songs are not very fast as in previous recordings (the band never really went to fast) so it does give you totally a new album from any other Pestilence previous work.

This is an album you have to really pay attention when listening, not catchy sound that you could enjoy when drunk or paying attention to your daily life. If you take your time, sit and relax and get a bit concentrated you will find an excellent quality album. Will give them 9.5 out of 10.

This guys did not record this album to gain any fame, attention or cash. They recorded this album knowing perfectly what they wanted to do. AWESOME

I am sure Evil Chuck is happy listening to this on his grave RIP.

Before I have heard this cd by myself, I had read a lot of bad reviews in the internet, that now i think that are unfair, because this cd it's pretty good, for sure it's different than the last Pestilence's album Resurrection Macabre, but I'm enjoying better this one...Try it, and decide for yourself...

Brilliant 2011 Death Metal 12 Oct 2011
By Dons Word - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I personally like this disc better than their last (Resurrection Macabre) that's why I gave a 5. More in the 4.5 range, but I gave it the full 5. This CD is a bit 'messy', but it is produced better, has some great mid paced moments, more technicality without feeling forced and I actually like the Vocals better on this than prior releases. Kind of has an Obituary feel and sound and is high in the mix. Its twisted. Gives the music more flavor, but if you don't like the over the top Death Metal Vocal style, you will be turned off immediately. Its cleaner, you can understand the lyrics better and it adds well with the higher pitched guitar notes in my opinion.

The best tracks are 'Dissolve' and 'Absolution' with their infectious riffs, old Death inspired vibe. Slower/mid paced thrash pieces with Pestilence infused madness. Excellent and Adventurous. Wont break em all down, but my personal favorites are those 2, the title track, 'Malignant' and 'Sinister'.

The songs are all in the same realm though. Some faster than others. Heavy, solid, fresh Death Metal with blasts of Technicality that they may had overdone on 'Spheres' in some opinions. The guitar solo's are really well done and the offbeats keep it moving and interesting. The Progressive style is back and its good to see they have not abandoned that dimension. Here it adds that ingredient to hold your attention, and the song time's are perfect in the 3 minute range as to not get stale. The longest track is 4:07.

Great technical Death Metal from an underrated and unique metal entity. I highly recommend as it is better than their last. A great addition to an excellent 2011, in terms of Metal releases.

The album is ok, but not outstanding ... 13 Aug 2011
By Ralf M. Leonhardt - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have all Pestilence CDs and am a big fan of the band since their earliest days. That said it is not surprising that I also like this new release of the band. It is definitely a solid Pestilence album and those that like the rest of the band's material will also be happy with this CD. Nevertheless, I feel there is relatively little progress to RESURRECTION MACABRE. The latter album was overall more convincing, more brutal, more to the point, in my eyes. I noticed that I rarely play DOCTRINE and mostly favor Pestilence's older stuff. Thus, this CD is worth the purchase if you are really a fan. But if you don't know the band, I'd recommend to go with RESURRECTION MACABRE, CONSUMING IMPULSE or if you buy more into progressive stuff, SPHERES.
Excellent New Music from Pestilence 24 July 2011
By J. Hill - Published on

The new Pestilence is drastically different from their last album, Resurrection Macabre. It's still death metal, but this release offers far more variety and has many hallmarks of the tech-death sub-genre. This is just an opinion, but I think ANY band with Jeroen Paul Thesseling on bass is automatically going to be one of the top few in the tech field. Bringing him back was without question the smartest move Patrick Mameli has made in many years, as J.P.'s stamp is firmly imprinted on every one of these songs. He even has a solo on the song Deception! A bass solo on a death metal album! It sounds awesome, too, I just wish it was about five minutes longer. In addition to that, the odd, off-time, jazzy improv feel of Spheres returns, with plenty of trippy, spaced-out grooves, grinds, and solos. But, unlike Spheres, Doctrine retains the brutality of Testimony of the Ancients. I think it would fit comfortably between Testimony and Spheres, highlighting their brutal and experimental sides almost equally.

One thing people might be thrown off by are the vocals. Mameli sounds much like he did on Spheres, but with the vocals louder in the mix, you hear all kinds of strange cracking in his voice as he tries to scream up and down the register. He did a lot of this on Spheres, but the vocals were turned down lower and blended with the music. And then, he actually does a couple of high notes (?!) that I've never heard him attempt before, and the results are...weird. I don't even know if it's good or bad, but it is definitely like nothing else you've heard. For the most part, though, I think he sounds fine, delivering a more multi-dimensional style than on Resurrection Macabre. Pestilence caught flak from some because that album was mostly straightforward death metal, so Doctrine should satisfy those concerns. I don't know if everyone will like it as much as I do, but I think it's a strong addition to their discography, and it makes me excited to see where they're going to go on the next one. Wherever that ends up being, they need to make sure they do one thing...keep J.P.!!
