Pestilence – Consuming Impulse Reissue Coming

Hammerheart Records is preparing an upcoming reissue of Pestilence‘s Consuming Impulse according to a post on their Facebook page.

Consuming Impulse was Pestilence’s most aggressive work ¬†before Patrick Mameli took the band towards rock song forms and jazzy riffing on¬†Testimony of the Ancients.¬†Hopefully this new reissue does not ruin the sound through massive use of dynamic range compression like the Roadrunner “Two From The Vault” CD collection with Malleus Maleficarum did about ten years ago.

    Ok music. Horribly mediocre album cover.

      The style reminds me of magic tree house or goosebumps

    Oh fuck please don’t fuck this up

    I absolutely badly want this.

    I’m presumably outing myself as an ignorant (again) but this has more interesting musical developments in the first 01:09 than the second King Grimson track manages to assemble in 05:52 (when I aborted this collection of odd sounding gimmicks intended to sound like odd gimmicks).

      In this case you happen to be right, but don’t be too harsh on King Crimson, this is top 10 quality Death Metal. Red and Discipline are better.

    ‘Consuming Impulse’ is one of the very best Dutch death metal releases, along with early Asphyx and Sinister.

    The cover is shit though. Looks like the ‘artist’ didn’t think to leave enough space for the logo and title, so the layout guy had to add space around the picture. Poor choice of colour.

    This is one of those rare instances that a classic album’s cover deserves a second attempt, and this reissue would be the perfect opportunity to do it.

      the album originally had a different cover but the label didn’t like it so they switched it to this without the band’s approval

        Roadrunner / Roadracer / RC did whatever they wanted. One example I know of is they replaced the photo on Sepultura’s Beneath the Remains.
        The original photo taken by Wesley Raffan (a friend of the band, and brother of their first bass player Rob Raffan) given to METAL FORCES mag for a cover pic.

        No idea if he got paid.

    Ah yes I believe I possess an original CD pressing of this album. It says Roadracer on the CD and on the back of the CD case. Great fucking album. Malleus Malificarum was their best though.

    1. canadaspaceman says:

      I will agree, Malleus Maleficarum was their best. Probably the closest thing to Slayer or Kreator with the intensity and speed and catchiness … and the ability to spit out a million words a second!
