5.0 out of 5 stars Death/Jazz/Prog Meisterwork From Pestilence. 23 Aug 2012
By M.G.A
Format:Audio CD
There was always an upward curve in the musical progression of Pestilence's albums during their 1988-1993 heyday.
The culmnination of this was their 4th album 'Spheres', issued on Roadrunner in 1993 to a mixed critical reaction which still lingers today - unjustifiably so.
The band's growing tendency towards melodic, progressive death metal (as evinced on their 1991 classic 'Testimony Of The Ancients'), reaches its logical conclusion on this musically startling, multi-layered, prog/death masterpiece.
Much like Cynic, Pestilence managed to combine the suppleness of jazz, the adventurism of prog-rock and the intricate, technical guitar arrangements which were the band's hallmark (especially on 'Testimony...').
The heavy use of guitar synth adds splashes of vivid colour which melt together with the tech-death guitar riffage which is rooted in the the band's 'classic' sound while, at the same time, allowing enough space for the band to wander off into true death-metal/jazz fusion territory.
The songs are short, yet give the impression of greater length due to the range of ideas which are expertly crafted together, as the band create a truly
dazzling array of sounds as washes of guitar synth create a prog-inspired backdrop which compliments the guitar-based arrangements perfectly.
They even find time to throw in three short instrumental interludes which are a perfect foil for the rest of the album, acting as stop-offs on the journey to fusion heaven.
One of the greatest, and most under-valued, metal albums of the past 20 years, essential listening for fans of Cynic as well as anybody who values creativity
in the often limited realm of death-metal. Try it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take a chance on this one! 3 Dec 2003
By "firecrotch" - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I've been pretty obsessed about Pestilence lately and have been feverishly collecting their catalog... "Spheres" is a great, but unfortunate, swansong for them, but it is by no means weak or ill-advised. Very cool free-form jazz mixed with double-kick drums, deathly vocals and swirling synths... Metal purists might hate this, but since these guys had been hinting at this style on both "Consuming Impulse" and "Testimony...", this should come as no surprise to open-minded metal heads. Well worth the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Spheres" is pure genius 10 Jun 2003
By oddity - Published on
Format:Audio CD
after 3 records of typical death metal, Pestilence experimented and came up with one of the best metal albums to ever be released. unique sci-fi guitar sounds and guitar synths make this album a progressive masterpiece. this record is highly underrated and anyone with taste in extreme music should have it by now.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings about this CD 29 Nov 2009
By Ralf M. Leonhardt - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My first CD from Pestilence (long ago) had been "Consuming Impulse" and it was exactly this CD that made me to buy the band's other releases as well. Admittedly, I didn't like "Testimony of the Ancient" very much for Mameli's vocal style, the powerless guitar and the far too loud mixed drums. Also, all the keybord in there kind of disturbed me and that the tracks did not have that brutal tempo and aggressive style anymore. Now, with this background you might think, I should hate Spheres even more. It contains even more "keyboard/synthesizer"-derived synthetic sounds and these sounds are now all over the place. Moreover, this is even more a step away from the aggressiveness of "Consuming Impulse", strangely going more into a progressive Jazz-Death Metal fusion, overall very slow in tempo and very melodic. Interestingly however, I liked Spheres much more than "Testimony of the Ancient", perhaps because I felt that this record was at least consequent and consistent. The band obviously wanted to go into a different direction and technically they do so on a very, very high level. Musically, they sound a little like the late Death to me, particularly the vocals resembling Chuck Schuldiner. There are some songs in here that I think are pretty nice. The reason that I still do not give this CD the highest rating is that I kind of feel that there is no song among this material that REALLY fully convinces me. It sounds all nice, there are no obvious "fillers", but there is not a single really outstanding track to be found here (at least in my view). So, I remain with 3 stars and the suggestion that if you want to hear brutal, aggressive Death Metal, stay away from this record (you may consider getting Pestilence's new release "Ressurrection Macabre", instead), but if you think you might like a (not so heavy) fusion of Death Metal and Jazz or you are interested in how something like that may sound, purchase this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars a gem 31 May 2012
By imomo217 - Published on
Format:Audio CD
My favorite latest find; excellent record. This one wears its jazz influences on its sleeves. Amazing instrumental songs here and there, with awesome unclassifiable songs (such as Personal Energy, Voices from Within...) Definite gem right here that shows an amalgam of genres done right. If you're looking for a record that contains lots of blast beats, this one might not be for you, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars very brutal!!! 22 Nov 2008
By raymond watkins - Published on
Format:Audio CD
this was a brutal deathmetal band that was really on to something until their demise in 1993. very heavy,progressive like, intelligent music with traces of jazz fusion mixed in. the vocals sounded alot like chuck schuldner's of death but the music just makes up fo it in every way! makes me wonder how far they could've gone had they stayed together all these years.....
