This is Pest as you know and will remember them. Maniacal riffs, mad song writing and hysterical vocals. This became the final album from Pest, but it still has the typical Pest sound from beginning to end. A furious album with total morbid atmosphere coming from the other side; original European black metal that does not sound like Burzum or Darkthrone.
Originally released on CD by Ketzer Records in 2014, a vinyl edition was long overdue. The sound is optimized for the vinyl format, making sure the album has never sounded as good as this LP.
The band was reactivated in 2009 after none other than Arjan from Cultus / Heidens Hart invited the band for a concert. When told that the band did not have a complete lineup he simply took bass guitar duties (and later also vocals) after just one rehearsal. With a full lineup again, the band played it's first concerts since 2001 and went through its most active period ever, between Oktober 2009 and April 2011, performing for example at Nuclear War Now! Festival part 1.
But the Pest era came to a very sudden end when drummer Mrok died shortly after the last two concerts. This album was recorded in the bands' rehearsal room and a few weeks before his passing. HEIL PEST!

Can you have your black metal with no moronic samples, with guitars downtuned to drill holes in your very self, hypnotizing bass lines, drums that are something more than blast beats and vocals that don't need to be soaked in reverb, and on top of it fast, melodic, headbanging and catchy?
p.s. my grandma used to say: never judge a metal album by its intro. YomaBarr
Absolutely strong, black and bitter, like a cup of good old coffee or a properly packed pipe of strong tobacco. The album won't let you go unless you listen through it since the very first minute to the very last one, sunken in the frozen obsydian abyss. 10/10. lanserger22
