Shame, I thought Obsideo was actually rather good. Still, despite the terrible name, he says he's heading in a more Spheres orientated direction with Necromorph which pleases me.

Quote:
"As of now, PESTILENCE is no longer active in recording new material. As a matter of fact, it's on a permanent hold, as I want to concentrate fully on my new project NECROMORPH. The style will be more brutal, more crazy, more tech, more futuristic and more death. I'm pretty sure all my fans will dig this!

"Please don't be sad about PESTILENCE. We've been holding the PEST flag strong for 25 years and we feel it's now done.

"I thank all my fans for being there and supporting us all the way.

"If there is any interest in PESTILENCE doing old-school shows in the future, me and Patrick Uterwijk will surely think about the options.

"I thanks all the PESTILENCE members since '86 for their musical talent and input.

"HAILZ TO THE FANS, we all love you.

"Now, let's give birth to NECROMORPH!!!!!!"

Except, ahem, for the 15 odd years in the middle of that.

I stuck that in BabelFish and the English translation came back as "Show me the money."

No loss whatsoever. It'd be good to see an old school set at some stage but I figure they hope they will be picked up by fests straight away for that and just continue on as they were under a new name.

Don't really see what all the Tears are about, they only had two good albums in like 20 years or something. Not exactly a big loss or anything...

I've still got the eclectic trio of Consuming Impulse/TotA/Spheres to get my jollies from, but the reunion albums were genuinely painful to listen to.

Sad to say, but no loss whatsoever.

Good example of a great band making a balls of their return. The new albums were either pedestrian or dull, especially the latest one which was desperate. For the best really.

Ah come on, that trio of Consuming Impulse/TotA/Spheres are fucking classics whatever way you look at it....Ive avoided their comeback albums for the most part...is Obsideo the best of an (admittedly bad) bunch then?

The first two are crap alright but Obsideo is a very decent spin.

Yisser all getting yerselves a bit confused. The album was called 'Malleus Maleficarum', not 'Spheres'. Not sure how you could possibly make the mistake that an album with the title 'Malleus Malifcarum' is in fact called 'Spheres' but anyhow. So, that classic trio is 'Malleus...', 'Consuming Impulse' and 'Testimony Of The Ancients'. Some time after 'Testimony ...', as the story goes, Patrick Mameli slipped while out walking, his head got firmly wedged inside his arsehole, Patrick Uterwijk and Marco Foddis rolled him the rest of the way home and the band called it a day without ever recording another note.

They have a couple of good albums, but goodbye and good luck to them, highly overrated band.

'Spheres' was a ball of shite of an album, it amazes me how quite a lot of people here revere it. Where are the riffs on that record?
