🐜Super reminds me of Autopsy's instrumental work with lighter on the ear vocals🐜
🐜Closing Thoughts: Yeah this was hard af. The guitars and drums were absolutely stunning and beautifully done. The vocals started off as being iffy but quickly grew on me - overall when brought together this made for an extremely enjoyable late 80s death metal record! If you like Autopsy you should find some enjoyment when listening to this🐜


Pestilence most well known and their most beloved album, Consuming Impulse is one of the early death metal album from around the late 80's and draw more from the thrash sound to create an aggressive and heart pounding release for some great classic death metal.

An ungodly dirty guitar work, shocking performance and the voice of a crying ghoul seeking for help.
