3.0 out of 5 stars Long Awaited Return of the Dutch Juggernauts 1 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
When it was rumoured that the mighty Pestilence were re-forming I thought it too good to be true but low and behold this new album was thrust upon a somewhat unsuspecting metal community in March 2009. This is their first album since the controversial but wholly underrated Spheres (1993). This first album of original material in 16 years was eagerly anticipated by all of us who grew up with this pioneering band and remembering Pestilence being one of the dominant forces in the fledgling death metal scene of the late 80's and early 90's.

Resurrection Macabre (2009) is a blistering death metal assault right from the opening death grunts of mainman and founder Patrick Mameli. Not just that, but the bands renowned technical ability is evident throughout and their trademark guitar sound flows brilliantly from track to track and on first listen it almost transported me back to 1991! Pestilence's high point and career defining abum was undoubtedly Testimony of the Ancients (1991). This new album unfortunately does not scale those lofty heights but most quality metal bands only produce a classic once or twice in their careers if lucky, so one cant be too critical of this album on that front. In essence, this album marks a return to the ferocious Pestilence that we knew and loved.

There are three of their old classic songs re-recorded and tagged on the end of the album. While initially sceptical of this potential heresy, repeated listens do affirm that these tracks sound even fresher and more brutal now due to the pristine production job that is evident throughout. However, strong as the album is, one cant help but feel that there is something missing.

Quality death metal, simple as that and hopefully an inspiration from a fairly static death metal scene, as others have said, it's got enough tech about it without overkill, but the two things the kick your backside are the vocals and drums and the production of both.

For me, the vocals and drums are what makes a death metal band special or average, topped with good crunchy rip your face off production. I just love Pestilence vocals, they, like Vader, epitomize for me the way death metal should be performed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pestilence making a comeback! 12 Nov 2009
By metal Mike - Published on
Format:Audio CD
What a surprise this cd was. I honestly didn't expect a whole lot after not hearing a release from them in so long. I never thought I'd say this, but this is actually as good as Consuming Impulse. I thought the vocals were great, even if it wasn't Martin singing. So many bands from the 90's have lost their originality and have gotten boring over the years, but not Pestilence. This sounds more like the Consuming Impulse cd than Spheres and Testimony, which would be good news to a lot of people. Production is good too. A very complete cd with no fillers. It's not too often you hear a cd nowadays where every song is good. It's nice to see Tony Choy back in the band as well. I got this cd the week and came out and back then I said it was the cd of the year and I still feel that way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong, Technical and BRUTAL 3.75 16 Jun 2009
By Dons Word - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I liked Pestilence back in the 80's. Had the first 2 discs. 'Consuming Impulse' was a blistering and tight death metal album. I really liked it for its intensity. I didnt buy the 2 following discs as of yet, so the review is based less on their experimental sound. Seems as if they went back to the Death metal delivery full force on this, but they did it with many more modern influences.

To tell the truth, it is very well executed, but pretty much what I expected. The sound of the Vocal and Bass drum is great! The songs are avg. Length (4 Min Avg) and Speed intensive, but very controlled. Not too long to bore you and many sick riffs with structure changes. Comes across as a mix of early (Bloody Gore, Leprosy era) Death, Blood Red Throne, Possessed and add touch of Coroner's technicality along with some guttural vocal and toxic waste(literally). I cant say enough about the good quality recording, especially for this style of music which can be hit or miss. It does crank.

The songs themselves are technical but not to the point of overkill. Basic riffs abound and hold your interest long enough to get to the more complex song structures, very 'off' Guitar riffs, good Solo's and incredible Drumming. The blast beats really give this band a kick in the as*.

The music itself isn't groundbreaking, it is just executed well. Has a very fresh/updated sound, but man, the twisted sounding riffs really do get to you. Really dark stuff. The Vocal delivery is what it is, SICK. But perfect for this genre of music. Its more about Brutality than Originality on this comeback disc.

Upon repeated listenings, it only gets better.

Best tracks are 'Hangman'(Brutal), 'Y2H', 'Fiend' (Sick and twisted song with many layers and structures), 'Neuro Dissonance'(intense and blistering blast-beat drumming)'the Title track has a really cool mid-section and 'In Sickness and Death'.

The other tracks are good as well. Really no throw outs and no surprises once 'Devouring Frenzy' kicks in.

'Synthetic Grotesque' is a Drummers track, as they are incredible here. Very intense. In fact, if anything, this disc has brutal drumming throughout and they are more prominent and dominant in the mix than on the bands older material. Maybe its just better technology seeing the older stuff wasn't the best sounding, but they are crystal clear on this disc, and extremely well done.

The Bonus tracks are great! A new version of 'Out of The Body' is on here and sounds much different. I like the updated style and clear production. The vocals are actually clean! Classic track that kills. Probably my favorite overall Pestilence song.

'Lost Souls' sounds a lot like (Scream Bloody Gore style) early Death/Obituary. Its a re-make off of their 'Testimony of the Ancients' disc that I never bought. I may have to pick it up after all.

'Chemo Therapy' is a good as well. Remake from their debut album. Their first disc was good, but lacked in terms of sound quality (like so many albums of that time did). This is a welcome update. Seldom do you find quality with bonus tracks.

A good Disc from a good band. This style of music is really limited, but Pestilence delivers the goods on this. Technically proficient and well executed. Buy it if you like Death Metal. One of the better releases for the Genre this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars welcome back, we missed you 1 Jun 2009
By znodog - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Welcome back indeed, old friends. These guys have been away too long. A stagnant death metal scene really needs this shot in the head! Patrick Mameli(Mameli played all guitars and vocals), Patrick Uterwijk(Uterwijk is pictured but does not play on the tracks) and returning to the group Tony Choy and introducing a new drummer Peter Wildoer who turns up the energy level. Now the performance of this new music is more powerful and more intense than the any of the previous releases. This is not thinking man's death metal like the older chin stroking jazz-prog moments of the older material they left us with. This is like "Consuming Impulse" on mega-steroids,very heavy assault to the body, every song pummels you and you just sit there and take it, Why? 'Cause its awesome! Fans will miss the soothing sounds of their earlier productions but you can't help being impressed with this stuff, bigger, tougher, fatter, balder and uglier than ever. Highly recommended for extreme metal heads, old fans might dig the 3 bonus tracks of older songs redone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and Brutal Comeback!!! 19 Jun 2009
By Frank Rini - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
OK I will admit I was a bitter at Patrick Mameli when he slagged death metal fans and insulted the intelligence of the very people that buy his music-but I tried putting it in perspective that maybe he was just upset at the scene or industry in general, so I am giving him the benefit of the doubt. I loved Pestilence's first 3 cd's-brutal, technical and fairly original pieces of death metal. I hated Spheres, I know alot of people liked it due to the fusion of jazz and technicality, I on the other hand found it boring and too much fusion for my taste. Resurrection Macabre is a combination of Consuming Impulse/Testimony of the Ancients with a fusion of blast beats. I find the inclusion of the brutal blast beats to actually enhance the band and add to the overall brutality of the disc. Tracks like Horror Detox, Y2H and Devouring Frenzy are brutal fast and pummel the listener. The title track might actually be my fave song. It's a slow very heavy song that just crushes. The thing that makes Pestilence still stand out from some other bands is that they have a signature sound that is Pestilence and their songs are catchy and memorable. Their are guitar solos and the band is still technical, but about as techy as Testimony, none of that Spheres junk. I would have like to hear Tony Choy's bass a little more in the mix, though. Overall the cd is very heavy, incredible production and the introduction of the blast beats adds rather than detracts from the sound. The only reason I feel this is not a 5 is the fact that they re-recorded 3 old classics-Chemo-therapy, Out of the Body and Lost Souls. Both excellent songs in the original versions. I was hoping for the band to mix it up a bit and record the versions as the band sounds now- with the brutal blast beats and kinda make them new again. What the band chose to do was to play the songs note for note, pretty much exactly as they were originally recorded with Patrick doing a really bad Martin van Drunen impersonation on the songs. The result is they sound boring and pale in comparison to the originals. If they would have incorporated their new sound in approaching these tracks the songs would sound better, I feel. Overall a minor complaint when the rest of the disc just crushes and mauls!! Buy or Die!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just awesome Death Metal 28 Nov 2009
By Ralf M. Leonhardt - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This release came really unexpected after so many years and necessarily in such a situation there was the question, whether it would still sound like the "old" Pestilence (whatever that may be, as Pestilence have actually changed their style dramatically even in their earlier years). To me this CD sounds mostly like "Consuming Impulse", which has always been my favorite Pestilence record. That's probably why I like it so much. The tracks are extremely brutal, Patrick Mameli's vocals are great (I actually didn't like them too much on Testimony ...) and the music is technically at the highest possible level. The production of the CD is awesome. You rarely find such good production in this genre. All in all, it's definitely worth to purchase. To me it's the Death Metal release of the year! Oh, and before I forget it, the material includes 3 re-recordings of older songs as bonus tracks, one of which is "Out of the Body" from "Consuming Impulse". This was one of my favorite songs of Pestilence and I was initially very sceptical on whether they should have re-recorded that. However, listening into it, I cannot say anything else, but that it simply rocks, rocks, rocks ... It combines all the brutality of the original track with awesome vocals from Mameli (I actually never thought that I would ever say that ...) and top-sound quality. Alone to have this single track, it would already be worth to buy this CD ...
