Pestifere ‘Hope Misery Death’ CD now available for purchase here, with cassette version available here!
Here’s what the critics are saying:
“Their black/death metal and thrash stew is a tasty one, filling you out and sticking to your bones. And the fact that they fight a noble battle against the true evil forces of this country and world should be enough to want to toss a few bucks their way to get your hands on this record and make sure they forge well into the future.” – Meat Mead Metal
“…meditative Pestifere are not. Which is fitting, considering how urgent their lyrical bent is: The toll mankind takes on the environment weighs heavy on their minds. It’s common and easy for metal bands to admire natural splendor, but far less common for bands to put some lyrical skin in the game of preserving that nature.” – Invisible Oranges
“Primarily a black metal band, but also utilizing elements of death and thrash, these guys know how to take melodic BM to all the right places … If you like your black metal malevolent and aggressive, but also passionate and distinctive; Hope Misery Death is right up your alley.” – metaltrenches.com
On The Weight of Sunlight – as with the classic, unhyphenated heavy metal of the ‘80s – you will find an album carefully constructed without filler, wherein no riff feels unnecessary, heart always transcends bravado, and a common sense approach to songwriting triumphs over mindlessness. Though the styles appear disparate at first glance (melodic death/black metal alongside pure heavy metal), the melding of genres is seamless, and you’ll find yourself drawn in for this entire 43-minute ride. No overly long, too-tech missives here: just a compactness and directness both refreshing and necessary in today’s bloated metal universe.
Let The Weight of Sunlight fall upon you!

As lives are led with no thought given to the decay surrounding us, many share in the fault of oligarchs for the ravaging of the Earth. But not everyone is silent – and for those, the raging sounds of Minneapolis, MN’s Pestifere are a fitting rallying cry. Astride black/death/thrash riffs riddled with force-fed melody, Pestifere confront mankind and its self-serving drive, which destroys the life-giving world we inhabit.
