Two years after PESTILENCE releasing with ''Consuming Impulse'' one of the best old school death metal albums ever to surface from The Netherlands, PESTILENCE hit jackpot again with their 1991 album ''Testimony Of The Ancients''. The biggest differences with their previous effort are simple, the production is more clean, short intermezzos between all the songs, the average pace is lower & Patrick Mameli has taken over lead vocals. PESTILENCE has had a well-deserved place in the first wave death metal elite, mentioned in one breath with the likes of DEATH, SEPULTURA, CYNIC, ATHEIST and the likes. Rightly so, because their progression up untill this album is comparable to, say, CARCASS. With every album they developed their sound so no release sounds alike but still stays PESTILENCE undeniably. So an iconic landmark album within Death Metal included his 16 tracks ''Testinomy of the Ancients'' gets now the well-deserved reissue. This fully remastered new DCD Edition comes included 16 bonustracks & two live sets from Dynamo & Nighttown Fest 1992.
