Pestilence - Spheres MC
“Spheres”, the fourth and final album by the original lineup of Dutch death metal legends Pestilence, is one of the most criminally misunderstood and underrated albums in the history of (extreme) metal.
Largely reviled at the time of release, the bad reaction was demoralizing enough for mainman Patrick Mameli to split up the band and keep it on ice for around fifteen years.
In the typical fashion of idiot trendy music journalists and fickle metal listeners to not recognize something groundbreaking for what it is until well after the fact, “Spheres” has been given something of a critical re-appraisal the last few years.
One could actually claim it is a a direct source of inspiration for many progressive extreme(r) Metal band these days.
