PESTIFER @ Facebook
Their music is fast, dark, and nasty, but with an undeniable penchant for smart songwriting; every riff sunk its hooks into me, and they only got deeper as the album went on. Pestifer are nothing if not devoted to their roots, their debut feels like a long-lost classic.
- Toilet Ov Hell
Death metal. Fuck posers.
- Salad.Days 9/10
...they bring devastation in the form of crushing riffs, demonic vocals and drumming that could drown out the sound of a full-on blitzkrieg. imply listen to the seven minute long opus ‘Riding The Storms Of Hate MMXVI’ if you need convincing. This truly is a stunning debut from a young band oozing confidence and a sure sign of great things to come.
- Metal Utopia 8/10
Congratulations to Pestifer for delivering the first great death metal album of 2017. The bar has been set!
- Brutalism 4/5
Pestifer have that knack for songwriting that sets them apart from many other acts who attempt to achieve this level of extremity … Execration Diatribes proves they have forged a sound all their own.
- No Clean Singing
…the tunes are merciless in their delivery, seething with the kind of pungent vitriol that makes classic death metal so appealing.
- Metal Rules 4.5/5
But what is particularly clever that the band has not forgotten to make actual music. An attentive listening session shows that there is still a lot of melody in both vocals and music. But because it's so extreme brutal you should be paying lots of attention to hear it.
…this album definitely adds something to your brutal collection. Sincerely recommended!
- Lords Of Metal 85/100
If you are a fan of well played, barbaric death metal with some thrash elements mixed in, then be sure to pick up Pestifer’s debut cd today.
- Canadian Assault
The Portuguese trio have created a record to stand the test of times, and malefaction is its pure essence.
Podemos dizer que não é original e que faz lembrar muitos outros nomes do death metal bruto, mas não lembra exactamente um em específico, não soa a cópia deslavada e acima de tudo... já dissemos que é potente?!
- World Of Metal Radio 9.2/10
Habrá que seguirles la pista muy de cerca, por que si siguen así deberían ser leyendas del “metal muerto” muy pronto.
- Necromance 7.5/10
For a debut opus these guys really produce the goods here, delivering an album full of old school class with touches of real originality and experimentation belaying a band of relative immaturity.
Pestifer haben hier ein brachiales Werk kreiert, welches sich hinter keinem anderen Death Metal Act verstecken muss.
