Pestilent Reign is a technical/groove death metal band from Germany. “Pyres” is slated to be released on March 16th with two EP’s to the band’s credits. The debut full length is extremely important to a new band but in this case is extremely groundbreaking. Pyres starts out with a line from Alex Jones….you know it’s going to be one hell of a ride.
The technicality from Pestilent Reign is downright filthy…..like Dying Fetus groovy. This is not an exaggeration. The guitar work is out of this world……a great mix of heavy rhythm and melody. It isn’t too fancy, and far from boring…..it should make any guitarist smile ear to ear. The drumming is very heavy and straightforward.
The theme and lyrics behind the album are very generic yet very real. The band’s goal was to expose human idiocy, religious bigotry and injustice…..all 3 very real issues in this world. Can you blame someone being fed up with such travesties? Not at all. I think it’s fresh to see popular issues in this world talked (growled, in this case) about in the extreme world rather than random grotesque unimportant song titles.
Pestilent Reign is here to melt faces and make your necks hurt for days on end. Pyres is a stellar debut and only can go up from here. There is untapped and unlimited potential in this band. The vocalist seems to have unlimited energy…..the whole band itself is relentless. If you don’t get a shot of adrenaline from this band then you must definitely be of another planet.
I hope you enjoy the two songs and preorder the album before its release date. It would mean a lot to the guys especially starting out. Any bands sales in their first week are important to a new release…..don’t wait and get your hands on this record ASAP.
