Pestifer are a band from Portugal that plays a very brutal and satanic form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Execration Diatribes" which will be released in February by Lavadome Productions.
An orchestra style intro starts off the album before going into a very fast and brutal direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and the vocals are mostly death metal growls along with some high screams and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of morbid sounding melodies and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they bring in more of a dark and old school style of death metal while also having its melodic moments at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the tracks bring in a great amount of influences up from the early 90's to modern times and one of the tracks is very long and epic in length.
Pestifer plays a style of death metal that is very dark, heavy, aggressive and brutal sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, Darkness, and Anti Christian themes,.
In my opinion Pestifer are a very great sounding brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mars Exult" "Enslavement Of God" and "Confront Death". 8 out of 10.
