Blood for the Gods (Lost Disciple)
Enslain Magazine Issue #6
Order Issue #6!  This review included. What a long way these guys have come. Pessimist's sophomore release, the follow up to "Cult of the Initiated," sounds matured, and yet more raw and brutal. Their chaotic nature still remains, with lots of time and riff shifts throughout, and a high volume of pinch harmonics. The bass sounds better placed, and more pounding in this release, and the vocals, also, have developed a stronger vitality, and transmit more anger. Among the newer generation of death metal, these guys are among the upper class... In a field of music that has reached a certain plateau, Pessimist rise above, providing a firm base for the mountain ranges that are to come. -- Lady Enslain
