23 Mar Pestilence

The legendary Pestilence are emblematic of their time and celebrate the 30th anniversary of second record Consuming Impulse (1989) by playing an integral set this evening in Alkmaar’s Victorie. Moved by early 80s American and German thrash metal the first two records Malleus Maleficarum (1988) and Consuming Impulse (1989) show a refined, loaded, haunting approach gearing more and more towards the death metal sound that gave them their reputable status. Growing up to dabble in jazz fusion and technical metal, Pestilence cannot be held down, unafraid of experimenting and always in flux.
