"This was an album that change forever the way with see the death metal.

This is simple a must have album.


El Spheres de Pestilence es un album unico, unico en la manera que cambio las cosas en aquel entonces, una maravillosa mezcla del Death Metal con el Jazz, como solo Atheist y Cynic lo han hecho también, el Spheres es un álbum que debe estar en la colección de CD's de cualquier Metalhead que tenga una mente lo suficientemente abierta como para disfrutar de los sonidos surgidos de la propia evolución del genero y mas allá de los patrones de estancamiento que a veces presenta el genero mismo."

"this was a brutal deathmetal band that was really on to something until their demise in 1993. very heavy,progressive like, intelligent music with traces of jazz fusion mixed in. the vocals sounded alot like chuck schuldner's of death but the music just makes up fo it in every way! makes me wonder how far they could've gone had they stayed together all these years....."
Genius technical and progressive death metal

"To be honest, at first I really did not like this album, I was too used to the "regular" death metal of the time: Morbid Angel, Death, Deicide etc to appreciate the genius behind this album.

But now, after all these years, I can say that this is the best metal-album ever made, in my opinion, it crosses so many dimensions.

I have stopped listening to most of my old death metal albums, but I still listen to this one frequently, this is really a timeless album that was way ahead of its time.

The music is complicated, technical, jazzy, experimental etc but still has the aggressive death metal feel.
The lyrics are psychological - Jungian influenced - and very deep for a death metal album, it doesn't follow the usual death-hell-suffering-butchery cliche.

I think this is why I still really enjoy it, it never gets boring to listen to and shows that death metal can be intellectual and still have the aggression.
