Pestifer – Expanding Oblivion
Belgium’s Pestifer just might take you on a journey through cosmos with their latest outing “Expanding Oblivion”. Well not really… that’s just the artwork. But if travelling through space and time isn’t a possibility, then a well-executed riff-fest is probably a close second. Despite their Sci-fi themes and initial appearance, this band is actually a rather convincing provider of stripped down gritty technical death metal. Equal parts Obscura and Death, this album has some throwback old-school death metal feel mixed in with elaborate technical riffing that would fit the tastes of most death metal afficionados.
