Release: 2017
Genre: Death

Published: 1/22/2017

Death metal from Portugal that packs a punch but lacks on dynamism
COMMENTS:
Portugal's Pestifer deliver crusty, aggressive death metal with their release "Execration Diatribes". Packed with plenty of groove and riffing, Pestifer certainly know how to put punch in to their songs. However, the lack of originality and variety on the album causes this one to stagnate in the ever present pool that has become death metal over the years. The songs tend to sound very similar, don't deviate from their formula and just get too darn predictable. While it was not a terrible release, "Execration Diatribes" just sounded like any of the recent death metal albums to come out.
